Experiences & Activities
We offer riding lessons for children and adults. Our riding instructors can teach in both Spanish and English and are qualified to teach everything from the basics right through jumping and basic dressage.
We have experience in helping nervous riders overcome riding fears & rusty riders regain their confidence in the saddle. Whatever your age or riding ability we can help you work towards your riding goals in a fun & relaxed non-judgmental atmosphere.
Set in some of the most stunning scenery in Spain, Pegasus Riding Centre offers a unique experience. We can take you on a variety of different treks to suit all tastes and abilities. Our trek guides are both English and Spanish native speakers.
For visitors who may never have sat on a horse before, we offer a unique combined riding lesson and trek (novice trek). This allows even the complete novice to enjoy the experience of a trek through some of the most beautiful scenery in Europe without having to worry about staying on! Training and guidance both in Spanish and English
One of our most popular trek experiences when its sunny is our “Wild ride & Swim Picnic Treks” – On this ride we trek to the to a local beauty spot beside the river to stop for a swim/paddle in a natural pool and a picnic.
We offer treks from 1 hour to full day treks. Our half day treks and full day treks are recommended for experienced riders and those with a good level of physical fitness due to the long hours spent in the saddle.
Tapas Trails & Restaurant Rides
For visitors to the area, we offer Tapas Trails. After riding through gorgeous mountain scenery we will stop off en route for a drink and authentic Spanish tapas.
Restaurant rides – ride & dine – offer similar trekking with a longer stop off for a traditional home cooked three course set menu & drinks at a local Alpujarran mountain bar with stunning views of the valley.
Activities For Children
We offer horse riding lessons for children. Lessons are structured to help children learn in a fun yet progressive way. We teach private classes, group classes and also have after school classes.
Pony Mini Treks are a fun introduction to horse riding for children and we have access to fantastic off road trekking in the eucalyptus forest park next to the riding centre. On Pony walks children are on a lead rein at all times and we encourage parents to get involved.
One of our most popular family trek experiences when its sunny is our “Paddle & Picnic Treks” – On this ride we trek to the river and stop for a swim/paddle in a natural pool and a picnic before riding back to the equestrian centre.
We hold a Tiny Tots session for children aged 3-7 each month. These sessions are a fun and educational experience for younger children and a great introduction to horse’s & riding.
Pony parties at Pegasus Riding Centre are the prefect way to celebrate your child’s birthday. After the pony session you may use the riding centre as a venue for the Birthday party.
