Spain, Almeria - Cabo de Gata

You've probably seen Andalusia's largest nature reserve, Cabo de Gata without knowing it. It has been featured as America's Wild West, the exotic Arabia and the desert covered North Africa in a large number of movies. So it is difficult to find a better location for a trail ride.

Manolo is based here since a long time back. His love for people, horses and nature is evident and he describes horses as "our companions through life".

You can choose between two trail rides. On both trails you will stay at least two nights in a cozy hotel in san Jose. It is close to both the beach and the horses' pastures. 

If you choose Cabo de Gata star ride, you will stay all nights at the hotel and ride half dayrides in different directions. If you are a beginner, you can get lessons and learn to ride and at the end of the week you can safely trot outdoors.

On Cabo de Gata beachride you stay at *** / **** hotels along the way.

If you want to experience the genuine Spanish coast outside the tourist route, you should go here!
