If you like mountains and horses - drive up to Victor and go into the mountains around. You will get rewarded with amazing views, great horses and just a spectacular time! Absolutely recommended!

Oh! Thanks a lot for the wonderful review, we will not deserve that much (well, the horses they deserve it, not myself). A big hug from Spain

We had an absolutely fantastic time horse riding with Victor. The scenery was stunning, the horses were very well-trained, and Victor was an enthusiastic, hospitable and knowledgeable guide and host. Riding up into the mountains past shepherds herding goats felt like a timeless experience and...More

4時間のコースを選び、シェラネバダの北面を頂上まで登りました。まるで映画のシーンのような景色が広がり、雄大すぎて言葉にできません。リーダーのヴィクターさんは子供のころからこの近辺で馬に乗っているらしく、流石でした。ヴィクターさんはホスピタリティに溢れ乗馬中も終わった後も、凄く楽しい一時を過ごすことが出来ました。忘れることが出来ません!厩舎に行く途中に迷って反対側の山の頂上近くまで狭い山道を登ってしまったのも今では良い思い出です。機会があればもう一度行きたいです。 We chose the 4 hour riding, and Victor led us all the way up the north face of the Sierra Nevada. It was a mixture of great, beautiful, indescribable, and unforgettable feeling. Victor, the leader, has been riding around here since youth, so we...More
