Horse Riding Experience
With its tiny landmass of under 7 square kilometres and narrow busy roads, there are no horse riding facilities in Gibraltar itself although a fantastic horse riding experience can be enjoyed at Endurance Equestrian based in the beautiful countryside of nearby Sotogrande. This purpose built residential & leisure estate offers outstanding sports and leisure facilities and is home to its own marina, luxurious resort hotels, a number of golf courses, equestrian centres and several prestigious polo clubs. The countryside around the vast estate offers perfect riding terrain where each available horse riding experience takes in a variety of wonderful scenery.
Not only can you choose your horse riding experience at Endurance Equestrian, they also offer accommodation in any of the Sotogrande resort hotels, a restored country guest house, and a rural hotel built in a restored monastery where guests can enjoy beautiful gardens and a large outdoor swimming pool. Riding holidays with amazing itineraries can be booked and experienced riders can sign up for exciting endurance riding. Their numerous horses are kept in a natural park of 1,500 hectares and all instructors are certified by the Royal Spanish Equestrian Federation. Whichever hack you choose you will be sure to have a fantastic horse riding experience with Endurance Equestrian.
Horse Riding Experience
Countryside Hack – These hacks are available for a duration of 1 or 2 hours and take in some wonderful scenery, allowing riders to choose their pace and passing through fields and rivers, pine and cork oak forests and lush valleys where riders will appreciate the clean fresh air and if lucky may spot some of the local wildlife such as deer, foxes, mountain goats and wild boar.
Beach Hack – This is a 3 hour hack and the centre's most popular where the salty sea air is invigorating and the vast stretches of sand invite riders and horses alike to give it all they've got. With the Gateway to the Mediterranean as a backdrop and the views stretching across the Strait of Gibraltar to the north African coastline, this is a truly amazing experience.
Picnic Hack – With a duration of 4 hours this is a gentle hack and a favourite for all the family to enjoy that follows similar trails and terrain as the countryside hack where your guide will set the pace best suited to the horses. After working up an appetite riders can choose to stop in the cool of the forest or on the banks of a picturesque river to enjoy a delicious picnic.
