Family Riding holidays Andalusia Spain at Hacienda Horses
Family Riding holidays Andalusia Spain
At Hacienda Horses we love to welcome the riders of the future.
We find that kids love the structure here and the fact that they can interact with all our 4 legged companions. They often help to educate our rescue dogs and many of the children do not want to leave.
When families arrive we usually take the younger members of the family into a separate group for the morning’s sessions with other children. In this group we can teach at a different pace, the children learn how to prepare horses for classes, and carriage driving. They have quizzes on horse welfare, colours, markings and lots more. They take part in separate gymkhana games and learn to drive a carriage.
For beginner children we offer lunging and basic classes for as long as their strength will allow. For children who have basic riding skills we teach them how to ride a gymkhana game per day with a competition at the end.
We entertain the children with activities that they will enjoy whilst the adults ride in their ability groups. We do this to let the adults have a holiday where there can ride and relax and not worry about their children during hacks. The children can interact and build relationships with each other and all our 4 legged residents.
In the afternoon the children will have lessons at a similar time to the parents.
Some families have the dream to ride out in the countryside as a group and once the children are confident we can arrange this with a personal guide.
As usual we listen to guests and try to provide the holiday that they would like, achieve the things they would like to achieve and try our best to make their dreams come true.
