Riding in Andalusia



Wow. Just back from a fantastic riding holiday in Andalusia. I went with a company called Los Alamos. Everything was really well organised, the horses were forward going and impeccably behaved. It was pure unadulterated fun! You have to be a fairly good rider as there are lots of wonderful canters and gallops through the forests. The going is really sandy so it's just lovely riding country of umbrella pine forests and wonderful beaches.

All the food and drink and riding is included in a fully inclusive price. There's almost a house party feel at Los Alamos. You ride in the morning and then have the afternoons to relax at the hacienda with it's communal living room (good selection of dvd's!), lovely pool (lots of loungers!) and sitting areas (wine and horse chat!).

Los Alamos is a family outfit and everyone is so friendly. Sisters Rhiannon and Rachel are top-notch horsewomen which is evident from the well trained horses. Along with two other guides, Kathy and Jose, they ensure the rides and fun and safe and that all the horses and riders are well matched.

Rhiannon is in charge of food and it is to die for. For lunch each day we'd either stop at a taverna with the horses tied up outside or we'd head back to Los Alamos and all sit round a big stone table in the shade for cold meats, tortilla and salads. In the evening we were served a three course meal with lovely home made dishes. It's a good job we were riding every day or we'd all have come home a tad heavier.

In October the weather is just right for riding. Still warm enough for t-shirts and refreshing dips in the pool but not too hot that you get sticky in the saddle.

I'll be posting a full review of the holiday on the site very soon. Look out for it on the Riding holiday reviews section

Meanwhile, has anyone else enjoyed a riding holiday in Andalusia. I'd love to hear about other people's experiences.
