Angelika and Juan are the most friendly and welcoming people and their riding trips lead through an array of breath taking landscapes, from snow topped mountains and lush hills to prairie like scenery. The best moment was when we went up hill in full gallop whilst holding on to the horse's manes, which really was the ultimate sense of freedom for someone who had never even properly ridden outside the arena! The descends were pretty spectaculair too. Apart from riding we spent a day with Angelika who showed us all the local highlights including La Calahorra and the cave-dwellings of Guadix. She's very knowlegeable about the area and talked us through the history with great enthousiasm before treating us to some tapas and a drink in a local bar. Thoroughly recommended...we will definitely be back! Thanks Angelika and Juan

We arrived at Angelika and Juan's farm house in the morning and until the time we left in the afternoon its been a very pleasurable experience. We rode on very well-trained horses (Canella and Teka) up the mountains behind their home along with their loving dogs Segriet and God. Through our trail up the mountains it was evident that Angelika and Juan are passionate about riding horses as they taught us the right way to trot without hurting the horses. Its been a great experience all round and i highly recommend everyone who is interested in horse riding but never got a chance to ride a horse to visit Juan and Angelika's horse stable. Definately looking forward to going back to the stables and helping out!

Having never even sat on a horse before, I found riding with Angelika and Juan to be a great experience. They were so thorough in advising me of what I needed to do and the care that they show their horses (and riders!) was obvious from the moment we arrived. The trail up to the mountains behind their home was wonderful and scenic and I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with them as we trotted along.They adapted the pace and route according to need and my basic understanding of what to do. It would be easy to be intimidated but they really relaxed me and made sure that it was an enjoyable experience. I would whole-heartedly recommend Angelika and Juan to anyone of all levels of experience.

Primera experiencia en rutas a caballo y sólo tengo buenas palabras. Repetiremos una ruta más larga seguro! Los guías son encantadores y te explican muy bien tanto el trato con el caballo, como curiosidades y detalles de la ruta. Lo dicho, os lo recomiendo a todos

I have been lucky enough to ride with Angelika and Juan a few times now and I cannot recommend them and their lovely horses enough. They are a wonderful couple who care so well both for their guests and their horses: and they are proud to ride with people on the wonderful car-free trails that rise up into the mountains behind their home. There is nothing better than a good ride, lunch in the hills and maybe a beer in the bar at the end.
They have horses to suit riders of all standards and will adapt the route and the pace to your needs.
I can't recommend them enough - do go!

We visited Angelika and Juan in September for six days. We had a wonderful time. The first day, we arrived in the evening and they waited for us. We drove to our accommodation to drop off our bagage and then we went to see their house and the horses. It immediately felt very welcoming. After that, we went for drinks in the local bar. For the next days, we went for horseback riding, each day a different route and all were amazing. If it rained in the morning, they switched the program. They adapted so well to our needs and wishes. We also enjoyed lunch together on several occassions. Juan and Angelika taught us how to connect with the horses and how to take care of them before and after the trips. We learned a lot from that. It was also very nice that their dogs accompanied us on the trips through the beautiful mountains, nature and small villages. Another great thing were the Spanish lessons during the horseback riding. While riding, we tried to talk in Spanish and in this way we were able to improve our knowledge of the language. What is more fun than learning Spanish while riding horses through beautiful landscapes.We hired a car from the airport, so we drove to the city (Guadix) and we had the possibility to roam around as we wished. Cogollos de Guadix is a very peaceful place and it allows you to fully relax and enjoy your holiday. Thanks again to Juan and Angelika for a wonderful couple of days! Hopefully, we will visit soon again 🙂
