Discover the world of horses – on relaxed outside rides with our very experienced trail horses or in intensive lessons
Discover your passion for horseback riding in a relaxed atmosphere amidst beautiful scenery on our amazing Andalusian horses
You did hours and hours at the lunge with commands nobody understands and a formal atmosphere get you off the riding? At La
Paz you live directly in the world of horses. Instruction in safe ground handling and riding is taught in small group settings. Our horses are reliable and experienced trail horses and you’ll build faith in them immediately.
The good news: You only ride at walk or canter. Our way of riding, the Doma Vaquera is the similar style of the western riding – very comfortable for horse and rider while hacking out. The very comfortable spanish saddle gives you a firm seat. Maybe you cannot impress an experienced rider after this one week but you have had a lot of fun and what is most important, you will have gained faith and confidence on horseback!
Before you mount your horse on the first day the basics are covered. You get an introduction about the general handling of horses. How you approach a horse to gain its trust; how it reacts. The saddles are shown and explained to you. Then you’re ready to mount your horse for the first time and you will be surprised that it does not take that much to communicate with horses. After a few times you will get a feeling for the basic aids. How and why a horse turns in different directions… Now you are ready to discover the surroundings of the ranch on easy trails. Out in the countryside you are suddenly a lot more relaxed. You enjoy the beautiful scenery and learn very easily how to go with the movements of your horse. The trails are chosen according to your skills and confidence. But there is no need to worry – your horse also looks after you, forgiving small mistakes.
Surely after a few rides you feel firm enough to try a first canter on easy ways – the reins in one hand you have the other one free to hold on to the mane…
Also for all riders who are a bit afraid or insecure or those with some bad experience in the past this program is ideal to get some confidence in a small group with experienced horses.
If you already have some experience riding in the country but like to start it slowly you can switch to another riding group when you feel save enough for it (Subject to modifications)
You can choose between a big riding package of 10 outside rides of about 2 hours each or the small package with 5 rides.
After arrangement we also offer riding lessons in different levels.
So you can combine your riding program completely on your own wishes.
But also for all those who just want to ride now and then the location of the ranch offers all kind of activities:
you are just about 10 minutes away from the animated Costa del Sol with sandy beaches, bars and restaurants. The small white villages with their handmade gifts and narrow valleys are accessible in about 30 minutes. But even the cultural sites as Ronda, Cordoba, Granada or Sevilla can be visited in about 2 hours driving on good streets. Torremolinos and Marbella invite with nightlife. Tarifa is a surfer paradise where they offer boat trips to dolphins and whale watching. From here you can also pass over to Tanger to visit Morocco. Jerez is famous for it’s Sherry but also for the Royal Riding School which you can visit even in the show or in the morning training.
Any kind of sport activities are offered at the coast and the surround of the ranch invites to long walks or mountain biking (rent a bike in Fuengirola)
This program is for everybody who is interested in exploring a bit the world of horses and those who want to get ( back) some confidence.
