Ready, trot, CANTER!
What makes this ride unique is the exceptional combination of remarkable historic sites, accessible on horseback, with the open and unspoilt Castilian countryside. The terrain is excellent for riding and the horses are very fit, so this is an active ride for the fast and furious. There are plenty of opportunities for long canters, and the opportunity to jump some stone walls if the riders wish to
go for it. An exhilarating getaway.

"Oh where to start. It was an absolutely superb ride in every way but not for the fainthearted. Certainly it was the fastest ride I have been on since Kenya in 1998……...This is a real 1st class operation. Maria Elena is absolutely wonderful as was Enrique and staff team...accommodations, food, horses, tack..organization of ride...tours...everything......Highly highly recommend this ride to the fast and furious."

“Another fabulous holiday. There is so much attention to detail, which makes for a seamless holiday. The horses were wonderful - so well-schooled and very fit… a joy to ride. Very comfortable saddles. The pace was great…you certainly need to be fit to keep with Enrique! Overal…. wonderful!

“It is a beautiful place to ride. I loved our guides. They made our trip extra special. Felt very welcome by everyone. Enrique does not mess around “Ready, trot, CANTER!” will stick in all of our heads for a long time. We did not go hungry. If there are any “light” eaters, this is not a trip for them.”
