Horse Riding Holidays in Southern Spain

Together with a team of helpful, friendly staff and 30+ fabulous horses, we provide luxury horse riding holidays and Bed and Breakfast in Andalucía, Spain. We are Christine and Paul Hartfield from the UK.

In 2008 we moved to Cortijo Uribe with our two horses and two dogs and started renovation work. Whilst working on this project we seemed to attract rescue horses and dogs to the house. People also asked for riding lessons and we employed some locals to help. As more 4 legged animals arrived we set up the business as a foundation and began to re-home, dogs and re-educate horses. After many years of re-educating horses we are now in positon to sell some of our amazing Andalusian PRE’s and other breeds. Spainish Dressage horses for sale

We then decided to have guests to stay to help with the cost of this passion. Come and join us and share in the happiness this project has bought to our lives, whilst having an amazing horse riding holiday in Spain.

This is so true of the golden horses we have here who will be with us forever. I watch with amazement when they come out and give lessons, even after the long breaks this year. They are happy and steady looking after their riders. 'Golden Horses'I am a lesson horse.
I am a horse that isn’t as recognized as the top hunter jumpers, the best western pleasure horse, or the 1D barrel horse, I am a lesson horse. I am the backbone of the foundation to do all of those things. I am a lesson horse.

I am not loved by one person. I am loved by several people. I don’t have my person, I have my people. I am a lesson horse.

I will teach your child and yourself more than just to ride. I will bring your child out of their shell. I will teach your child about life. I will be yours and their shoulder to cry on. I am a lesson horse.

I will bring my family the joy of teaching kids. I will bring my families business growth. I am so loved by my family, even if they don’t express it everyday. My family allows others to show me love and enjoy me. I am a lesson horse.

At the end of your childs’ journey on a lesson horse, they will out grow me. They will find one that jumps higher, a horse that is show quality, a horse much faster than me. But, I will never outgrow being a lesson horse. I will be the one that loved your child and helped your child grow into the rider and person they are. I am a lesson horse.

At the end of my time as a lesson horse; I will be covered in grey hair. Each grey hair came from each hour I spent as a lesson horse. I will be in a field of green grass, I will be taken care of as I was when I was a lesson horse. I will watch your child from across the pasture love her new horse. But, I will love your child more than any horse can. I will be the backbone of the business, the family, and your child. Don’t forget about me, I am a lesson horse.

I am a lesson horse.

All children should have a lesson horse In the 1960 at senior school once a week for a term riding lesson's were on the curriculum and being very dyslexic this special time helped me through school now 70 I still have horses in my life. They are such a leveller

So true, I still remember some of the pony’s I had my lessons in more than 40 years ago: Nancy and Devil. 🥰

And in an instance we remember the lesson horse and all their names

Still rember with much love, my very first lesson horses, Harry and Lightening

I still remember the lesson horses I had the pleasure of knowing 50 years ago! 🤎🖤🤍

I remember Winston , my lesson horse. Xx

need the tissues! so true

This is so beautiful, and so true.

Vengador and I are starting to get out regularly for dressage. We have had a fabulous time and he is at last starting to forget his giraffe style head carriage, and with a lot of encouragement remembering that dressage is long and low. He is such fun.
We are actually running 3rd in the Andalusian dressage league and should be in the championships in November. Not bad for a pensioner and an ex show horse 😊😊😊

Quinto our very special horse is now looking for a special home.
He is 17hh PRE bred from Escalera lines. Brilliant temperament. He is now 6 years old and came first in his first dressage in an FEI Medium Challenge Cup Test, last week. He had several 7s.

What sort of vet chops a horses tail off?

Is Miki the horse that arrived in around September 2017/18?..used to belong to a vet?.. Who cut his tail short!.. I Remember him as he was in the quarantine box having just arrived and absolutely swarmed by flies.. And he had no tail to speak of to swish them away and no breeze in the box as it was so hot!.. I really felt sorry for him...but He was sprayed liberally with fly spray to help stop the torment 😢

Jasper is looking very good Christine! Miki, is new to me - been too long away!! xx 💞

Lovely photo they look so relaxed ❤😁

Jasper’s looking so well Chris 👏🐴❤️

Aw I loved Miki!

Aw love Miki ♥️ first horse I rode on hack x

Aww, I do love Miki 🥰

Jasper!!😍😍❤️❤️

Aww Miki 😍 xx

I totally agree: Jasper 😍❤❤ ( how old is he now? still looking great!)

Our Location

We are situated next to the village of Mollina, in the Malaga province of  Andalusia. The Cortijo is a short 40 minute transfer from Malaga airport. With excellent train and bus services, the location is perfect for those who want to experience the cities, towns and villages of the Andalucían region and the real Spain. We have three stunning, historic & very different cities of Seville, Cordoba and Granada a little over an hour away. Closer still, within a 15 minute car journey, we have the beautiful medieval town of Antequera, the cross roads of Andalusia.
