Join Hidden Trails on some of the best horse riding vacations in Spain.  Spanish horse riding holidays have a lot to offer and are as diverse as dressage clinics, trail rides, and gourmet food vacations.  Hidden Trails offer equestrian tours in some of Spain’s most stunning locations – from Catalonia to Central Spain and Mallorca to Southern Spain.  On a horseback riding holiday in Spain you will uncover hidden valleys, bask in the Mediterranean sunlight and dine of the finest wine and food.

Horse Riding in Spain

There is more to Spain than just bullfights and flamenco dancers.  This vast country in the Mediterranean is home to mountains, hills, valleys, never ending beaches, islands and amazing wine regions. 

In Catalonia, our horse rides meander through volcanic landscapes, beautiful beaches and traverse the mighty Pyrenees mountain range.

Central Spain is a gourmet extravaganza – our “Vineyard Trail” ride is in an area boasting over 8000 wine makers!  Here, you will also encounter the wonders of Madrid, and many small medieval villages in the Gredos Mountains and Extremadura Valley.

In Galicia, you can ride on several routes leading to Santiago de Compostela. The French Route is the most popular, but you can also opt for more quiet Northern Route or go beyond Santiago to Fisterra.

The Balearic island of Mallorca and Menorca are other excellent horse riding locations.    

Finally, Andalucia in Southern Spain, is also a popular horse riding region with diverse landscapes. The Sierra Nevada Ride will take you across the surprising Tabernas desert, while our Romantic Road to Ronda lets you explore charming villages. We also offer a splendid ride to Donana National Park.
Check out our dressage clinics under the instruction of former Olympian medalist Rafael Soto.

The Andalusian (Spanish Horse)

Spain is famous for its Spanish Horse (Andalusian). The Andalusian is believed to be the most ancient riding horse in the world. Although the origins of the breed are not clear, Spanish experts adamantly maintain that it is in fact a native of Spain and does not owe one single feature of its makeup to any other breed. In the 15th Century the Carthusian Monks founded the most famous lines of the Spanish horse on the Fuente del Suero estate Jerez. The Stud was called "Hierro del Bocado" and was situated in the beautiful grounds of the Guadalete's valley next to the Carthusian Monastery. The Carthusian Monks developed a herd that became one of the most appreciated in the world.  The Spanish horse has certainly made a lasting impact on many of the worlds breeds, including the Mustang, Quarter Horse Appaloosa, Peruvian Paso,  and Paso Fino.

Spanish History and Culture

Spain has a tremendous history – reflected in prehistoric cave paintings, Moorish palaces, crumbling castles, Roman ruins, Gothic and Renaissance cathedrals as well as some very distinctive modern architecture.  The uniqueness of Spain lies in the separate kingdoms which made up the original Spanish nation. These regions remain diverse in their language, culture, cuisine and art. They include: Andalucía, Aragon, Asturias, Basque Country, the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands, Cantabria, Castilla La Mancha, Castilla León, Catalonia, Extremadura, Galicia, La Rioja, Madrid, Murcia, Navarra and Valencia.
