Joan / Catalonia

The Equestrian Center is located on the same farm as our rural accommodation, where we also live throughout the year. Inaugurated in 2019, we are a centre approved by the Generalitat of Catalonia. Our goal is to bring the world of the horse closer to all those interested, whatever their level, whether they have never had contact with horses or if they are an experienced rider or rider with a desire for adventure. We want to promote and spread equestrian tourism with great respect for horses. Equestrianism as an amateur or professional sport and to bring the horse world closer to all those interested is this exciting sport.

OUR HORSES
All our horses live together in semi-freedom, in an area of ​more than 60,000 m2, they have different environments

with oak forests and fields with forage. We also have different fields for the need of mares at the time of breeding their foals or need for more attention.
They are perfectly tamed to walk, trot and gallop. We practice natural dressage so almost everyone responds to
voice and some do not use fillet. Each horse has a character, but they are all friendly and understand each other
perfectly.
They are Pure Spanish, Hispano-Arab and Anglo-Arabs. They have different heights and weights, so we can adapt to
different riders and amazons.
The horses are equipped with special anti-chafing sweatshirts and all with saddlebags, to carry the necessary items
of the rider during the day and for picnic lunches.

LEARN TO RIDE A HORSE     € 900,-           (including breakfast)

This program is designed for people who have never ridden or have barely ever ridden and want to start without risks. During the week they will alternate between classes and field trips. When the program finishes they will be able to step and trot with their horse in the field, in balance with yourself and the horse without any risks. They will also have spent a wonderful holiday in the Baix Empordà and the Costa Brava. This program is perfect to start riding alone, as a family or with a group of friends, taking advantage of the holidays to learn how to horse ride. This program has been created and developed in collaboration with Manolo Ruiz, equestrian tourism consultant with 25 years of experience. The horses are trained to obey the voice and to work in groups, one of our experts teaches the students from a horse, maintaining control at all times of the student’s horse, which allows us to move quickly, safely and confidently; after this program the student will be able to trot and start at to gallop. Each day we do a class, and later we go on a trail to practice everything that we have learned.
