About the tour

This horse-riding holiday is located in hills of Ronda near Malaga and Cadiz, and is the perfect way to take in the blue skies, fresh air and spring blossoms that bring Andalucia to life at this delightful time of year.

Our 5-day short break is carefully designed so you can experience the very best of rural Spain on horseback, with experts riding alongside. You will enjoy daily guided horse-trekking, while back at your hotels the staff will be ready to welcome you with the best local food and wine from Andalucia after an invigorating day out with your trusted companion.
