What our guests say
Sierra Gredos 1
“Very well run, with excellent horses, we were even able to handle a foal born recently. The noises of running water and cow bells. There are many streams/pools/rivers in what I had thought was an arid area. We had a hot and sunny week but there were breezes and it was not uncomfortable riding weather. The beautiful and varied scenery, and the opportunity to observe village life and traditions. Fabulous Spanish food, particularly the meal prepared in the fisherman’s hut by the river. The availability of swimming in freshwater pools most lunchtimes for those that wanted it”.

“…the best riding holiday I have done. Maria Elena is a wonderful hostess and guide at all times. The scenery was stunning – no need to go half way round the world! I think she feel some people are put off coming to Spain in the summer as too hot, but the Gredos are always pleasant due to their altitude - with lots of rivers to swim in at lunch!

“Where do I start? The scenery and the wild flowers in bloom. The horses, particularly Nemo. The hosting of Maria Elena. The picnics. The support of Maria Elena’s team. My special birthday ‘surprise’… She has a fantastic set of well trained horses who are a joy to ride. Her logistics work well in the background and everything seems to run like clockwork. The pacing of the ride builds progressively as the week goes on and the riders become stronger. We will recommend this trip to our friends and plant to do another in the next few years - can’t wait to return”.

List of clothing v. useful. It was a very relaxing holiday with a good balance of riding and leisure time. The organisers are concerned that holidaymakers may think Central Spain is too hot in the summer, but this is not so as you are high enough to be cooler.

“ I do not know where to begin … it was all excellent. I loved my horse totally and Maria Elena was fantastic company and a great ride leader. I really appreciated the stops for the aperitifs and the quality of the lunches was super. The hotels were great as was the catering in the evening. The scenery was stunning and the amount of riding was just right. The pace was great with lots of opportunity to canter. The swimming in the rivers at lunchtime was also much appreciated. All in all it was fabulous!”

“This was a fabulous holiday – carefully planned and executed. Maria Elena inspired confidence and matched horses to riders very well. My daughter got the horse of her dreams and still talks about him.”
