    Mediterranean jewel

    Magic, inspiring, breath taking... the most beautiful and unknown views of the Mediterranean Sea, riding along the coast of Menorca. This is a surprisingly unspoilt Balearic island, full of great contrasts in the landscape and in the nature. Menorca has preserved its rural life and it encapsulates the history of the civilisations. Menorca has its own local breed of horses: the black Menorcan horses.

    MENORCA BIOSPHERE RESERVE

    The wild Northern coastline with rocky towering cliffs and red beaches. The deep lush ravines, canyons and caves of the Southern coast, ideal habitat for many kinds of endemic plants and shelter of migratory birds. The turquoise waters of the secluded white sandy coves


    MEGALITH MONUMENTS

    The largest number of archaeological sites of any Mediterranean island. The settlement of Torre d’en Galmes, erected by the early settlers of the island in the Bronze Age 1300 b C


    UNIQUE CUISINE WITH LOCAL PRODUCE

    The “caldereta de llagosta”, a succulent lobster stew served on fine slices of toast. Traditional lunch at local cheese making farm hosted by the farmers. The Gin “Xoriger”, the almond cakes and the ensaimadas soft pastries

    What our guests say

    Menorca 1

    “The Menorcan ride was great. Not fast but the riding is tricky and ' hairy'. Kept you on your toes. Tough volcanic riding country on the coast lots of ups and downs over precarious boulders. Best solution was to hold the reins in one hand and use the free hand to balance or hang onto the back of the saddle when going steeply downhill and leaping boulders. Lovely coastal track but glad I Didn't suffer from vertigo! Horses were FANTASTIC. Incredibly sure footed and not a scratch or injury from all the scrabbling over rocks and Boulders. They are clearly well loved by Catalina and Toni. It was great to have Maria Elena with us for the first 3 days but Catalina and Toni were superb guides. The hotels food and picnics were excellent. It was very special to see three 'Fiesta' stallions at the farm we had lunch at on the final day. We had perfect weather!”

    “The unbelievable scenery and the wonderful weather we had! The incredible horses which were so sure footed down the narrow stony paths. We did not know that horses could go on such terrain. Very good food and wine! Probably our favourite ride with the Seville one. It really was a very successful holiday!”

    “Catalina and Tony were brilliant, Catalina always going the extra mile for our comfort and pointing out interesting sights and historical sites, her friends were so welcoming at the farm on the last day and what a bonus to not only see the stallions but have a demonstration too. The hotels were perfect and the dining arrangements and food superb, the weather was a bonus too! Just a comment the riding was testing, though the amazing horses look after you so well, anyone with vertigo or a bit unconfident would struggle, and here is no going back!!! Great to see Maria Elena, she is a class act!!! Thanks so much for organising such a great holiday.”

    “The horses were wonderful - they took the tricky going in their stride. On the first day .. the picnic spot had altered .. we ended up going up step long steps to the picnic spot .. the horses weren’t phased! The coastline was lovely. The scenery changed everyday. The first and last hotels were fabulous! Maria Elena is so welcoming and a wonderful host. Catalina was also an excellent leader, who has great pride in her horses. A wonderful beach canter / gallop!” “The ride is slow in pace - but definitely not for a novice rider - you need to be balanced! You also need a head for heights … We ate very well - fabulous picnics, and good evening meals. This was a great ride to explore a relatively unspoilt island. The ride was seamless- which goes to show all the organisation behind it - with bags / horses etc being moved to be in the right place; lunch appearing set up on a beach etc etc. We had a very enjoyable group as well. Thank you yet again!”
