Cadiz Coastal Trail
Spain ( Best airport: Malaga)
Head to the Costa De La Luz in south western Spain for superb horse-riding on golden beaches and sandy tracks through unspoilt forests. An ideal introduction to riding holidays, with morning rides followed by tapas lunches with time left to spend swimming or wandering around the local area, before going out for dinner in the evening. With a fantastic warm and sunny climate this stretch of Atlantic coast offers a real treat for horse riders. A warm welcome, fun atmosphere, well schooled horses and fabulous riding complete this long weekend.
Level of Riding and Fitness
This trail is an ideal introduction to riding holidays as the riding is around 4 hours a day (3 hours during July and August) and you will have afternoons free to spend time swimming at the beach or exploring the local area.
This trail is not suitable for beginner or novice riders and all riding guests should be confident and able to control a well schooled horse out of doors at canter.
There is no minimum age limit, however there are no ponies available so riders need to be able to control a small horse in open space. The weight limit is 83kg.
Guides and Group Size
You’ll be guided by Caroline and Steve whose local knowledge is second to none, with over twenty years of organising horse riding holidays in the area they are able to lead you to really spectacular places. Groups are kept small and this creates a welcoming and friendly atmosphere with a maximum group size of eight.
Accommodation and Dining
You’ll be staying at the beachfront Adiafa Hotel located only 50 metres from the sea. The hotel is family run, friendly and welcoming. All the bedrooms are spacious twin rooms with on-suite bathroom and air-conditioning, some have a large balcony and sea view, which can be booked for a supplement. The hotel has a free wi-fi connection and some English language TV channels.
This holiday is also a great opportunity to sample some of the excellent Andalusian tapas. Relaxed lunches take place each day in traditional tapas bars and dinners are in hand-picked restaurants in the local town of Barbate. All meals are typical Andaluz fare with superb meat and fish dishes being served. Vegetarians can easily be catered for.
