Ride across the stunning mountain scenery
This quiet and peaceful region in Central Spain offers a fantastic setting for a trail riding holiday.

Your guide, Emilio, has been leading riding holidays in the Gredos Mountains for more than 20 years and knows every stone of each path like the back of his hand. His home-bred PRE and Hispano-Arab horses are much loved and extremely well looked after, living outside all year round in a natural herd. They know their job, are easy to ride and make sure you can thoroughly enjoy your holiday.
