Horse Riding Challenge in Spain


The BHS Challenge ride in Spain takes place in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The horses we ride are Andalusian and Andalusian cross; there are also a couple of Appalossa mares. The tack is predominately English but there are a couple of Western rigs too.

The days aren't too long (average 5 hrs in the saddle) and the going is sound. The mountain trails are quiet narrow in places so you need to stay focussed, but generally speaking the riding is a pleasure; the accommodation is comfy and just a couple of nights are spent in tents allowing the group to get well away from the usual touristy areas and up into the beautiful forests where few people venture.
