Meet your friendly guide in central Barcelona and leave for a natural park by air-conditioned minibus.

When you reach the stables, your guide will give you a quick safety briefing and show you how to put on your riding hat, before helping you into the saddle for a practice session around the riding arena and show you basic command such as walk and halt for approximately 30 minutes. Every effort will be made to ensure that youre well matched to your horse, with novice riders given the gentlest ones.

    Everything was great about the experience except the time of the excursion, too early 8am but it was still worth it.

    Our van driver was very friendly, the ride was fun but I wish it had lasted a little longer, and the snack after the ride was delicious! Really nice way to spend a morning.

    Terrific tour. One of the highlights of our entire journey. Great to get out and do an activity as well as see Barcelona from a beautiful vantage point.

    Our driver was late causing us to panic if we were in the right pick up location. There was little conversation on the trip out of Barcelona. At the horse farm, the instruction about caring for and guiding the horses was good. However, there was no information given about our locale. It was scenic but not enough to overcome the shortcomings.

    We had such an beautiful day riding in the hills of Barcelona. The instructors were thorough and made sure we were matched with horses that matched our horse riding skills. It would have been good if we'd been able to have a canter or a trot as the time spent on horseback was at walking pace but it did give you a chance to enjoy the magnificent scenery. Highly recommend this tour and especially the lovely lunch we ate after the ride.

    Our Guide was Lorena she pick us at the right time. drove us to the stable. At the stable we mate our guide which first, provided some riding instructions and safety giddiness, and than we ride the horses through very nice trail back to the stable. Our guide Lorena prepared nice Spanish style refreshment, and drove us back to Barcelona. Overall very nice tour.

    My daughter and I took this trip together and argued over the rating. As a beginner rider I would give it a 5. As an experienced rider she insisted on a 4. Paul, out guide from the tour company, was the nicest person you could hope for. Great host for our trip. The riding facility was very nice and our guide Alex was very good. The horses were well looked after and the trail ride was beautiful. The experienced riders in our group were only able to cantor for a couple of minutes in the arena then we walked the trail. Not very challenging for them. The beginners loved the beauty and the surety of the horses. Would definitely recommend.

    This was an absolute highlight for my trip! I cannot say enough kind words about Laia and Alex! Laia was the most kind and informed tour guide I have had during my time in Barcelona. Laia went out of her way to make sure I was comfortable and went above and beyond pointing our important sights during our drive to the horse stables. Alex, the equestrian trainer, made me feel safe and comfortable before ever leaving the stables. Alex is such an amazing trainer making this tour perfect for any level rider. Laia, took many pictures during the day and said she will be share them with me over email! During the tour you have amazing views of Barcelona from the sea, city center and mountains. I was also impressed with how fluent Alex and Laia were in English - this was a treat making communication easy throughout the day. All together, the short riding lesson in the arena, tour through the park and delicious Catalan meal made this a must do tour while visiting Barcelona!
