Walk through the pine forest, canter through a sea of wild flowers, or gallop down the beach along the edge of the surf. The Costa de la Luz is horse-riding heaven, and there is something for everyone. Even if you don’t ride, you cannot help but be absorbed by the region’s equestrian culture: visit the Royal Andalucian School of Equestrian Art in Jerez or the Feria del Caballo in May (arguably Andalucia’s most spectacular feria), or simply watch fighting bulls being herded by farmers on horseback in the fields of some of the great fincas that dot the Cádiz countryside.
There are a number of stables and riding schools in the area around our houses in Roche and Vejer, and we recommend several of these to guests, depending on their proficiency and interests. These range from simple stables with a couple of horses and a guide to sophisticated schools with multi-lingual instructors and a wide selection of horses.
Off-season is really the best time to enjoy the riding here: not only because of the heat in the summer; but because the spring flowers provide a wonderful backdrop of colours, and the winter is the best time to ride down the beach (i.e. when there is nobody else on it!) If you visit in February/March, you will also coincide with the Sunshine Tour, which during more than a month attracts many of the world’s best 3-day eventers to the stunning surroundings of nearby Montenmedio.
