Spain, Mallorca – Dressage, Jumping & Trail Rides

Mallorca has two sides, one that is a tourist resort and one that is a genuinely beautiful Spanish Mediterranean island. There are large national parks and long beautiful stretches of coastline with small cozy hotels, beaches and outdoor cafes. Out in the countryside on this beautiful Mediterranean island, is our equestrian center and stud. Your hosts, Pilar and her sister Francina, has many years experience in the breeding of Andalusian horses (PRE, Pura Rasa Espanola). They offer high quality equestrian holidays, in a relaxing environment where the staff, guests and horses thrive. Between rides, it is lovely to lie by the pool and enjoy the sun.

Spain, Mallorca - Dressage on Andalucían Horses

Spain, Mallorca - Dressage on Andalucían Horses

This is your chance to experience dressage in a beautiful warm setting. Between rides, you can lie by the pool and enjoy the sun, while you watch riders being trained in the paddocks.

Many people are fond of the Andalusian horse, as it is both beautiful and enjoyable to ride.

On this program you will learn to ride with as little aids as possible. The Andalucian’s sensitivity and working ability makes it an excellent teacher. Even very experienced riders can develop bad habits. For example, if your seat is slightly askew when you canter, the horse will not canter but rather move sideways. However, by doing it correctly, you immediately get the right response. When successful, you will feel like you are dancing with your horse.

The riding begins on Mondays.

Program: The program includes 8 hours of dressage lessons during the week. During the months of April, May, June and September you will enjoy a countryside trail ride with a snack on the area of Son Negre (duration 4 hours and a half). During the other months you will do a 2h trail in the countryside plus 1.5h dressage lesson. On the day when there is no riding, you will enjoy a day to relax and visit Portocolom Bay.

Saturday ends with a last lesson in the morning and then you have the afternoon free to lounge by the pool, have a massage or even book an extra lesson before the farewell dinner in the evening. The groups are small with normally 1-2 riders and maximum. 

The horses are highly trained and you will practice shoulder in, leg yielding, flying changes and, if you’re ready, maybe even piaff. You will be riding on a stallion or gelding depending on what you and your instructor feels is best.

This is both an instructive and a fantastically enjoyable week!
