The unique location of this family-run farmhouse and equestrian centre makes riding here an unforgettable experience. Doñana National Park is one of Europe’s most beautiful and important wetlands. What makes this area so special is that in just one day you can see very different ecosystems: marshland, pine groves, lagoons, moving dunes, 30 kilometres of pristine white beaches, … The soil is all sand, which allows for excellent going for the horses.
The farmhouse offers its guests two types of horse riding experiences: dressage lessons and a five-night trail ride through the national park. The dressage programme includes two private riding lessons per day on well-trained Spanish horses. On request, the dressage lessons can also be mixed with a few short rides in the countryside. The trail ride programme is an exciting trail ride through the national park, riding on average six hours per day. While the horses will stay overnight at the end of the route each day, the guests shuttle back to the farmhouse every night for dinner and accommodation.
Both the cuisine and the newly renovated accommodation are in authentic Spanish style. The owners take pride in serving high-quality, local dishes. The farmhouse and equestrian centre are located in the suburbs of El Rocío, a town dedicated by and for the horse. The town has white cottages and sandy unpaved roads. You won’t spot many cars. Lots of people get around on horseback and there is a special rail for tying your horse to whilst you stop for lunch.
Your host José Manuel, with a strong background in dressage training and environmental science, is a skilled dressage instructor as well as an informative guide when being out on the trail.
