Our horse farm and riding stable "El Refugio" is located in the south of Valencia,
about 35 km from Alicante Airport, between Guardamar and Torrevieja,
and only 1.5 km away from the beach of the Mediterranean Sea.
No matter whether you are a beginner or advanced rider - we have the right horse for everyone,
and we offer a wide range of riding programs.
Our ranch is opened all year round, arrival and access to our various riding programs are possible at any time.
Even if you do not want to spend your complete holiday with us:
You can still book riding lessons and trail rides - without room and board.
Non-riders are also welcome to join us and to spend a holiday with full board in our guest house.
Enjoy riding on our well-trained and sure footed Spanish horses through the nature reserve of La Mata - Torrevieja.
The two salt lagoons are among the most important wetlands in Europe with an exceptional climate and unique flora
and fauna. It is the realm of avocets, cormorants and flamingos. Sandy, flat trails along the lagoons are ideal for
scenic gallops. Our rides take you through orange and lemon groves, past vineyards, through pine forests, dunes and
reeds. On stony paths we climb up the hills, from the saddle you will have superb views of the
lagoon, the azure blue of the Mediterranean Sea and the sharply drawn silhouette of the mountains in the back
If you have always dreamed of a beach ride: Here it is possible!
(only for residents of our guest house)
Shorter stays over a long weekend or for 5 days are also possible.
You want a special riding program (eg Spanish dressage) ? No problem, - just ask us !
