Our Horse Riding Holiday in a Nutshell
On arrival at Cortijo Uribe you will be shown your spacious rooms with air conditioning.
We then start our guided tour around the Cortijo, you will be shown the infinity pool, the shop, gym, games room, chapel dining room and stables. There are timetables and notice boards for client information.
Next you will be given a time for your assessment. At the assessment the trainer will discuss with you your hopes and aspirations for your holiday with us at Hacienda Horses. The trainer will gauge your riding level and a horse will be allocated for your next outing.
The normal riding itinerary is a 1 to 3 hour hack in the morning (depending on abilities) and a 1 hour lesson in the afternoon.
We provide this flexibility because some beginner riders cannot cope with the longer hacks.
On a one week stay you have the possibility to include some of the rides below, depending on the weather and rider ability:
Ride to a local bar, a picnic ride, and new for 2016 we start our `Finca ride’, where we ride to our nearby ‘Finca’ for refreshments.
Our “Flamingo ride”, which is 6 to 7 hours riding in total is only available to riders with proven riding ability.
On the daily hacks will be exploring the local countryside through pines, olives and vines. Visiting some amazing viewpoints for photos and breathing in the peace of the natural areas.
The more advanced riders will be given the opportunity to practice some more advanced movements during their lessons, Paso Español, piaffe and passage, when horses are available. There might even be the opportunity to work horses at liberty. Extra private lessons can also be arranged at additional cost.
