Full description

Unleash your inner cowboy on a guided horseback ride into the Tabernas Desert. Stop along the route to learn about the natural environment, nature, geology, history, and cinema. On arrival at the ranch, be welcomed by the guide who will provide you with your equipment and introduce you to your horse. Once ready you will receive a short training session to get to grips with animal-friendly horse riding. Then, everyone will set off on a tour tailored to the participants' level, supervised by an instructor. Follow the "Desierto de Ley" route for an introduction to the desert. Cross an open area of desert, with views of the mythical "Llano del Búho" and "La Tortuga". Ride through these unique landscapes and admire their geological formations.

See where hundreds of film and TV productions have been filmed, such as Indiana Jones, Game of Thrones, Exodus, The Sisters Brothers, or The Crown among many others. Later, return to the ranch, where you will say goodbye to your horse.

Great tour and very nice guide! Shortly before our departure you made it easy for us to make an appointment. Attention is paid to safety, the horses are well taken care of and everyone receives a brief introduction and the horses are assigned according to riding ability. My friend has no riding experience and had a super good horse that was ideal for him. Tours of 2 hours or, for experienced riders, tours lasting several hours can be booked there. We were both very enthusiastic and my boyfriend really wants to go horseback riding with me again on his next vacation

Excellent! It was amazing! The guide not only knew Spanish, but spoke English and French very good too. He was very friendly and helpful, he explained and showed a lot to us, and even took our photos during the trip. The horses were well groomed and looked healthy, were gentle and even though I was really afraid, everything went well. 100% would repeat the experience.

Super nice guide! Small training on the property and then off to the desert. The guide explained a lot about the locations with a small photo album with scenes from films that were played there. Without having to ask, the guide offered to take pictures of us on the horses at all points where we stopped. A great atmosphere, amazing landscape - the price is more than fair! I can only recommend it to everyone, really great!
