Amazing experience - very remote, beautiful and completely overwhelming landscape - it is literally on the side of a mountain! The horses were very good and completely suitable for each rider - victor was very good with my children of 10 and 11yrs and my husband who has barely ridden a horse in his life! Words can barely explain what this place is like - we loved it and wish we could have spent more time with Victor and enjoying this place. A great host- thank you so much Victor for looking after all of us with your gracious Spanish hospitality ! I would highly recommend his place, it is incredible, but be aware that some will find it quite isolated. It is truly beautiful.

Today, we went for a 2 hour horse ride with Victor. I could not have wished it to be any better - I just wish we could have gone on for longer. I have ridden most of my life but my boyfriend has only ridden once but was given the most wonderful and trustworthy horse and he loved it! We had spent the last few days walking around Güéjar Sierra but seeing it from horseback was just brilliant! I would definitely recommend this if you have the opportunity! Victor is incredibly helpful and lovely too! If I can I’ll be back for a much longer trek!

Thank Olivia M

Words cannot express how much we enjoyed our time with Victor and the horses. I’m a very timid rider and Victor was so encouraging. My husband and I enjoyed Victors company so much and he made us feel like family. The horses are well trained and well cared for. The surrounding views on our ride were amazing. We will definitely come back and ride again.

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 was a great was to experience the Sierra Nevada.

We emailed Victor and got a speedy response, and after answering questions about our level of experience and fitness, we booked the 4 hour ride for two people. This was a perfect length of time - long enough to get up onto the mountain bridlepaths and experience the scenery not visible from the road, but not too long in the saddle for people who haven’t ridden for a long time. (We both do a lot of sport but neither of us had ridden for over 15 years.) We travelled to the stables from Granada, and it’s worth allowing plenty of time to get there as the mountain road is narrow and twisty.

We both felt safe on the horses and very quickly relaxed and enjoyed the experience. Victor enthusiastically pointed out the names of the mountains, the plants and trees, relics from the Civil War, and talked about life in the Sierra Nevada. He also took some great photos which he emailed us afterwards. The trip ended with a beer in his garden. A truly memorable experience and the highlight of our holiday in Granada.

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 felt very comfortable following him. We enjoyed his hospitality on the horses and after the ride as well. It was a long way from Japan, but I want to come back if I have a chance again.
