Spain’s Sierra of Gredos RideRiding in the Gredos Mountains combines the altitude of the mountains and the alpine valleys (around 4,950 ft.) and swimming in the refreshing and gurgling rivers and in the mountain gorges.

This is an ideal riding week with full days of riding, diverse landscapes with mountain views and pristine mountain rivers. It is a perfect riding holiday, with fun day rides, long picnic lunches and beautiful pools to swim followed by sunbathing siestas.  Each day offers exciting gallops across pastures and open fields.

The villages display their architecture, their traditions, and the way of life of their people, isolated in this inaccessible nature that shapes their unique character. Enjoy the best riding in this part of Spain and in the early summer months.

Testimonials:

I was invited by a friend to accompany her on this trip, and I have to say it exceeded all of my expectations. Riding through the Sierra of Gredos was amazing.

Under the stewardship of Maria Elena Dendaluce Arriga we traveled a wide loop through some of the most beautiful country I have ever seen, with abundant wildflowers, majestic vistas and ancient ruins and history to boot. The horses were all of excellent quality, very well behaved and in amazing shape. I think they are part mountain goat given some of the terrain they traveled without pause. The trip was well paced with time to get to know your mount and wonderful accommodations and food throughout.

The trip is best enjoyed, I think, by people with a good level of fitness and solid riding abilities as there are extended trots and canters interspersed each day. Go and enjoy!
