Second time using this place and both times have been fantastic giving you the opportunity to gallop and canter! Not the usual boring stay inline type hacking, more or less do what you want. Would highly recommend.

Absolutely Brilliant ❤️
9/2019 • Soolomatka
I had such a fantastic time today, amazing scenery and some brilliant places to gallop back home. All the horses look well looked after and have good breaks between rides. They offer rides of 1 hour (25€) and 3 hours (50€) which in comparison to prices in England is very reasonable. I did the 1 hour ride and it was fantastic. The horse was perfect for me and I had a brilliant time riding her. I do ride and own horses at home so cannot comment from a beginners point of view but if you are honest about your ability then they choose horses to suit. Rides are between 10 - 12 and 3 - 5. The place is well set up with shade for the horses. I did take boots and leggings with me and they provided a hat and chaps. I would advise you take leggings or jeans as all stirrup leathers pinch.
I have read a lot of reviews on this place hence me reviewing an honest review and one read ‘it was dirty’ I mean its a horse place! They have dirt/muddy dust on the ground, thats part and parcel of owning horses. Also don’t go expecting fields of green with individual stabling and air con. You are in Spain, they ride, train, keep horses differently to in England, they have their own way here and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. Go and enjoy it for its authentic charm!
One tiny hump was the guys don’t speak amazing English, enough to get by but again its part of it! I did the very British thing and smiled and used hand signals haha! Its a brilliant experience do go!

lovely horse beautiful scenery amazing riding
9/2019 • Soolomatka
I went for 1 hour ride today €25 the horses were well kept feet all good very muscular not skinny but very fine and beautiful. I rode a forward going mare I am a competent rider but have been out of the saddle for many years even so she was ace! didn't hardly have to use my leg and she was so fast when we galloped back home! the scenery was amazing I went at 6pm for it to be cooler but it was only me going out to ride so lucky! the girl who lead the ride was nice and checked I was ok a lot... hats and chaps were included to borrow I will go back again for the 3 hour ride I hope... I cannot comment on how this ride would be for non riders as there wasnt any instruction or mounting block but maybe this was just because they know I could ride already x

Pony hit in face
8/2019 • Perhe
We visited here to go and see about riding. When we arrived we saw some small ponies being ridden by young children. One pony was being walked by an adult woman in his own and I presume because the pony was not doing as she wanted the woman hit him across the face with a stick. I am no training expert but I don not think this complies with the fair treatment of animals. Needless to say we swiftly left.

Huge difference in capabilities of horses
7/2019 • Perhe
Two children in our party went on the three-hour ride. Unfortunately, even though she had prior riding experience, one was allocated a horse that could hardly put one foot in front of the other. She was very disappointed that her horse was only able to plod along while others were cantering along the beach. This seemed very unfair considering the high cost of the outing.

Riding in the evening
6/2019 • Pariskunnat
We went to rancho and asked if its possible to ride a horse. Young Lady said yes of course no problem, than just asked us if we know how to ride a horse, then come manager take horses for us and than we went out. 1 hour of riding trought pine Forrest and beach is enough for people who was riding years before. Its good if you know how to ride a horse. I like it, i enjoy it and if you have free tíme in Mallorca try it

Such a stressful tour !
5/2019 • Pariskunnat
Bad experience.
We booked a 3 hours tour. Our "guide" was a very angry girl who was screaming all the time during the tour.
She didn't even introduced us to our horses. No security rules or anything. I use to ride for years and I was stressed during 3 hours but she couldn't understand and just kept screaming at us all the time. When she was not screaming, she was on her pone, watching videos or texting !!!!!
Horses are badly treated, under the sun all day and are here only to make money, this is very sad.
I don't recommend this ranch at all !!

enjoyable fun ride
8/2018
although as an experienced rider, I am always a bit sceptical of riding in a tourist style stables, I have to admit that despite my reservations the horses and riding were very good
although there is very little form of "instruction and explanation" about who, what and where you are going etc as practically no English is spoken - the owner and his team seem to have an ability to match horses to rider abilities
there are skull caps and chaps available but very much first come first served
the three hour ride is extremely good value for money and irrespective of the level of riding ability within the group you will have many opportunities to canter/gallop
the nature of the horses and their routine seems to ensure that the fast and slow are literally poles apart
the beach ride is very beautiful and the sight of nudist surfing will live with me for a while
the experience could be really improved with maybe some better communication - failing that maybe some multi-lingual signs would help - just an idea!
if I am back in the area - I would go again

Wonderful experience!
8/2018 • Pariskunnat
First we went to a horse riding farm in Alcudia, which ended up being a disappointment so we decided to give another place a try. We were hesitant about going to another place as we didn’t want the same disappointment but were pleasantly surprised!

The Horses seemed enthusiastic and much happier and more energetic than the Horses at the farm In Alcudia. All seemed well taken care of and had lovely temperaments and didn’t look lifeless like the Horses at the other farm. The farm was very different to in the Uk (which I suppose is expected) but I didn’t see any issues with the Horses living conditions in the brief time I was there.

The owner was SO lovely and polite, made us laugh in the car when he picked us up and dropped us off. Made everyone feel very welcome and made sure to say hello and goodbye to everyone. Water was offered at the end of the trip too which was a nice touch!

We did the 3hr trek, which was beautiful! Lots of opportunities to trot and gallop (although this was a choice) wouldn’t say it is the best trek for complete beginners as Horses are not “riding school” types, they do have a bit of energy about them, or at least the ones we rode did, which was fine for me being experienced. Although, saying that, my boyfriend isn’t experienced as such and managed fine, he loved it!! But he only galloped once. All horses were lovey none the less and didn’t run off with anyone, spook or act up. They ask about your experience beforehand anyway.

Overall great experience and best horse riding place I’ve been too yet!

Incredible trek
8/2018 • Perhe
Wow, we enjoyed this so much! I have ridden before but my partner had never been on a horse and my 11year old only once before. This is a family run business, the horses were all beautiful and calm. After getting you settled onto your horse, your off, and wow what a fab trek. We chose the one hour trek. Through the beautiful forest and onto the beach. On the way back we were offered the chance to gallop if wanted or continue the gentle journey. I chose to gallop, wow, so much fun. Thankyou. Definitely the best trip of our holiday.
