Galicia Short Break

5 Daysย  |ย  From ยฃ849pp

Spain ( Best airport: A Coruรฑa )

Rushing rivers, epic Atlantic scenery and delicious meals combine to great effect on this short break based on Spain’s most beautiful coastline. Lush green valleys and rugged mountains, sheer cliffs and wild, frothing seas. Galicia, the north-west corner of Spain, is a diverse region, ideal for exploring on horseback. This short break offers 4 nights of Galician hospitality with shorter riding days of betwen 3-5 hours. Open to all riders happy in walk, trot and canter.

The Riding

You’ll be riding through the rural area surrounding the farm. The scenery is mountainous with forests, rivers and cliffs to explore. Galicia is a surprisingly green and lush corner of Spain with a huge diversity of scenery. Riding is at all paces so you should be happy at walk, trot and canter when riding in a small group.

This is a based stay with 3-5 hours of riding a day. There is a mix of terrains on the trails; river valleys, mountain paths, more challenging forested areas with natural obstacles and secondary roads with really rare traffic (maybe a tractor or a cow!).

Level of Riding and Fitness

Riders need to be confident at walk, trot and canter and have experience in riding in open spaces. There are approximately 3-5 hours of riding a day, so this is the ideal holiday if you have been out of the saddle for a while or are looking for a more relaxing break.

Riders aged 12+ are very welcome. The weight limit is 90kg.

Guides and Group Size

The groups are kept small, between 2-4 riders, and the pace is tailored to suit the group.

The Horses

The herd includes 11 well-trained horses of different sizes and capabilities. All of the tack is selected considering horse wellness and rider needs. The horses are ridden in either English and western saddles and all are ridden bitless.
