Unicorn's horse riding holidays in Spain are among our most popular holidays and we have been sending riders here for many years, in the process aquiring a huge range and expertise.  Our clients love these rides, returning time and time again to Spain.

Spain, together with Portugal, lies on the Iberian Peninsular in Western Europe. It is a very large country and is widely known for its extensive coastline beloved by sun worshippers.  The centre of Spain is dominated by its vast central plateau which is divided by several mountain chains. You may be unaware that, Switzerland apart, the Spanish mainland is Europe's highest and most mountainous country. It has an average height of 610metres (2000ft).

Unicorn's horseback holidays are located in some very beautiful areas of mainland Spain and Mallorca. In both locations you can ride through stunning scenery and escape from the hoards of summer tourists.

Spain is steeped in history and its cultural heritage includes flamboyant flamenco dancing, lively fiestas, bullfighting, opera, literature and sport. Horses play an enormously important role in the culture and history of the country. The pure Spanish, or Andalusian, horses are very much loved by the Spanish people and make the perfect companion on a horse riding holiday in Spain.

For those riders travelling from within Europe, Spain is just on your doorstep. There is a large range of flight options including low cost budget airlines. See below for a selection of rides from our large range of horseback holidays in Spain. They are guaranteed to whet your appetite.

Horse riding holidays Catalonia
Catalonia is an area, the size of Switzerland, in north-eastern Spain and has an extraordinary variety of landscapes packed into it and is ideal for a horse riding holiday in Spain. The locals think of themselves as Catalonian rather than Spanish and they have their own customs and traditions including their own language, Catalan. For those wanting a point to point horse riding holiday on the beach then Catalonia trail rides are unbeatable and extremely popular. There are a variety of itineraries, all different and well thought out. See Catalan Mountain to Sea Trail, Catalan Culture and Beach, Catalan Based with Mini-Trail and when it's too hot escape to the mountains with the Smugglers Trail. All our Catalan trail rides offer excellent fast riding on well schooled Andalusians and crosses. These Catalonian trails are must do horse holidays for good riders and many riders revisit year after year.

Horse riding holidays Andalusia (Andalucia) 
Colourful Andalusia is quintissentially Spanish - the land of bullfighting and flamenco dancing. It borders Portugal in the east and the Mediterranean Sea in the south. It contains the famous cities of Granada, Seville, Malaga and Cordoba. The Moorish influence is very evident in the culture and in the region's architecture. It has alpine mountains, pine forests and barren deserts and is sufficiently fertile to produce abundant crops including juicy citrus fruits. If you are looking for a beach horse riding holiday then Andalusia is the place to go. Try the very relaxing and welcoming  Forest and Beach week with an English hostess. For point to point trails, both the Alpujarras and in summer, Sierra Nevada, can't be beaten for scenery and traditional whitewashed Moorish villages provide an authentic Spanish experience. Choose from the Alpujarras Trail, Andalusia of the Moors and Tabernas Desert Route trails. Also in Andalusia you have the oportunity to improve your riding skills with dressage lessons near Seville.

Horse riding holidays Mallorca
We also have a horse riding holiday on the beautiful island of Mallorca. You know it must be a special place when celebrities such as Catherine Zeta Jones, Kirk Douglas, Boris Becker, Michael Schumacher, to name just a few, have holiday homes here. Those looking for beach riding or dressage will love this holiday - but to avoid disappoinment you'll need to book early to secure a place.

Horse riding holidays Castilla and Leon
For a very traditional look at the roots of Spanish culture, we have trails in the centre of the country, west of Madrid, Castilla and Leon regions. Riding on spirited pure Spanish horses, the pace and itineraries of these trails are aimed at enjoyment of food and culture. Try the Roots of Castilla or Green Mountain Trail.

Horse riding holidays to Santiago de Compostella
Last, but definitely not least, for the ultimate challenge, try our Compostella Route, a traditional pilgrimage route, starting in the French Pyreneans and finishing on the west Coast of Spain at Santiago de Compostella. The complete trail takes 3 weeks and the two halves can be booked separately.

So you will be spoilt for choice with all these wonderful adventures in Spain to choose from. Contact us now for advice on which rides are best for you. Don't forget, we can also arrange extensions such as city stays with a range of diffent accommodation options available.
