The Equiberia Rides

Gredos is the Home of Equiberia , specifically Navarredonda de Gredos, a village in the Northern valleys of the magnificent Sierra de Gredos in Ávila. This is where María Elena started Equiberia and has her own stables and beautiful horses. It is also home to our flagship rides. If you have not ridden with us before, we recommend the rides in Gredos: The Valleys of Gredos and Sierra de Gredos weeklong rides, or Gredos Escapes, our short programme. LEARN MORE

Gredos is a great territory for riding, with very diverse landscapes, remote medieval villages and easy free access to vast areas of common land and ancient bridle paths. In Gredos, riding a horse is just the natural way to discover the most authentic rural Spain. Gredos is our home and we have great flexibility to customize any of these rides. The Gredos riding tours are the best introduction to the Equiberia equestrian vacations.

We have expanded our boutique riding holidays to three other areas of Spain: Segovia, Sevilla and Menorca, with local partners who are great equestrians and share the passion for horses and the good life. All are very knowledgeable about the terrain, the history and the traditions of their regions. LEARN MORE

Segovia, the heart of the old Kingdom of Castilla, where history comes alive, is a very energetic ride for fit riders, led by Enrique.

Menorca, the best-preserved Balearic Island, a jewel of the Mediterranean Sea, is a slow ride through some breath-taking challenging coastal terrain, led by Catalina and Toni.

Sevilla, the cradle of the Andalusian horse and El Rocío Pilgrimage, offers the best terrain for riding with sandy trails in the pine forests and the wild beaches of Doñana, Trails of Andalusia, led by Alfonso.

Gredos and Segovia is a weeklong tour that combines three days in each region, giving you a taste of both rides. It is ideal for private groups and accompanying non-riders.

Segovia Escapes is a short programme for small groups of fit advanced riders.
