The two living hearts of Castile
The Nature and the History. The rural heart and the medieval heart of Castile.
This extraordinary ride combines three days riding in the Sierra de Gredos with three days riding in
the province of Segovia. This is an ideal ride for private groups who wish to get a taste of both
regions. Side cultural tours can be customized.
A TASTE OF GREDOS
Immense open valleys, 360º vistas, great diversity of landscapes framed by majestic mountains. The pine forests and the Tormes river. Truly rural Spain. The yellow broom in blossom in springtime.
A TASTE OF SEGOVIA
The heart of the crown of Castile. The grand Baroque Palace of La Granja Royal Site and Gardens. The medieval hidden jewel of Pedraza. The purple lavender in blossom in springtime.
TWO REGIONS, TWO HORSES
Horses from the Gredos stables for the first three days and horses from Segovia for the second part of the trip. Ready, trot, CANTER!
THE EPIC GREDOS APERITIVOS AND THE ROASTS OF SEGOVIA

What our guests say
Gredos Segovia 1
“We had a fabulous time. Marie Elena was her usual attentive, entertaining self. What an interesting person she is - she deserves an award! Both areas were fascinating and so different. And we were treated to a tour around both Segovia and Avila. The horses both in Gredos and in Segovia were the most well schooled I have ever ridden and the saddles were really comfortable. Enrique was a delight - a fabulous horseman and the riding centre was wonderful. All in all a great experience and as usual it all flew by too quickly! You absolutely need to be riding fit. The days in Gredos were a particularly good warm up as we definitely cantered through Segovia. It was brilliant.”

“Our trip last year Gredos and Segovia led by Maria Elena was absolutely wonderful. The ride through the old Canadas and villages was lovely, and each stop was catered in grand style. I was very well mounted on Mayo for the first part of the trip and Cubana for the second, and having just had a knee replacement 6 months prior to being there, I appreciated the well trained horses. i remember by the end asking Maria Elena if she thought Cubana would hunt, and Enrico if they ever sold horses back to the US…she is a very special mare. We had fun with the Jaime and the barn staff on the first leg of the ride. I loved watching Cartoucho herd the horses back out to pasture at the end of the day. And we all loved learning a little history and staying in some lovely hotels. But the best part of the tour is really Maria Elena . We immediately connected with her like she was an old friend, and she rolls with the flow with a smile on her face. She organized side trips with apparent ease, at one point finding us a young guide for a birding side visit that we all enjoyed. My comment to Maria Elena was that organizing our group was like herding cats! I know some of our group have ridden all over the world, but this trip stands out as the trip of lifetime. So thank you for organizing such an excellent trip for us! Cheers!

“Just to let you know this was a wonderful trip – I loved the scenery, the flowers, the old towns and churches and, most important, I had the perfect horse for me! Fantastic organisation on the part of Maria Elena and Enrique. Thank you.”
