“It is my aim to open a riding centre where compassion and customer service are high on the agenda. Situated in The Alpujarra mountain range, we are blessed with beautiful trails directly from our centre. We provide a range of services, lessons, treks, riding holidays and more to suit everyone. Pegasus Riding Centre prides itself on listening to the needs of clients, but also to the needs of the horses. We cater for all riding levels. My goal is to create a place where both rider and horse can enjoy learning and develop a connection. Every day my team strive to achieve this goal and create a fun equestrian experience for all our riders. I look forward to welcoming fellow horse lovers to Pegasus Riding Centre”
