Full description
Pull on your riding boots for this 5-hour adventure on horseback in the mountains just outside of Barcelona, and see breathtaking Catalan countryside from the back of a graceful Spanish horse.

Ponies are provided for the kids, and an experienced riding instructor will give clear instructions in Spanish and English for those with little or no riding experience.

They made the best day of my holidays

Barbara picked us up in the early morning and we head straight to the equestrian center, which is in a Nature Park 30minutes drive from the city. The horses were walking and running in the big arena when we arrived. What beautiful creatures! We were introduced to the horses. Staff at the ranch treat them as friends. It is obvious that these people love horses. We brushed the horses and put on the saddle. I am happy that we did that before riding, because I was a bit nervous. My friend has ridden horses for 15 years, and she enjoyed doing that as much as I did. We rode for about half an hour in the arena. That was a good warm up for me, because it was my first time on a horse. My friend could trot and canter in the arena, since she has much more experience that me. Later, we rode for 1,5hours in the Park. Nice trails and beautiful views! Montse was carrying water for us. Thank you! It was very very warm and we stopped half way for a minute to drink. It was a nice detail from he

Great horses great experience

Marc picked us up at an easy to find location and drove us out of Barcelona to the place. The horses were well chosen for our ability and the ride was excellent with panoramic views. Alex was a good guide and took photos and video for us with our cameras

Extremely enjoyable experience!

I booked the experience for myself and a friend and it was fantastic! The booking was very easy to make and they give you plenty of information before the day. We were greeted by a very friendly and helpful guide when arriving at the meeting point, who then drove us to the nature park. The guide was very talkative and full of interesting information about the day and city. When arriving we were handed over to our equestrian guide and met our ponies! We spent some time in the arena where the guide had us walking, trotting and cantering, depending on our ability. When we were comfortable we then went out on the trail which was beautiful. Afterwards, we tucked into a delicious amount of tapas which nicely ended our tour.
