Very friendly and helpful tour operators. Thanks so much Joan, Barbara and Carla and hope to see you again.
I have to mention though pick up and drop off were not included, as the excursion took longer, Barbara called my next excursion's operator and Joan drop me off in front of the tour agency of the next excursion. Although the sense of competition of the next excursion's tour operator didn't let them to be as helpful as this excursion and didn't wait for me for less than 5 minutes, but I was really impressed by the sense of responsibility of this excursion's operator. Highly recommended.
Our personal guide was delightful. Due to the heat of the day and how it affected me, I was unable to partake of the riding tour. My grandson was treated royally. He learned the history of the Spanish horse he was to ride, took part in preparing for the experience by grooming the horse and fitting saddle to horse. The instructor prepared him by training in the "ring". Then the two of them went on the riding tour. He was tired and hungry when the two returned to the stable area where the option of cooling down the horse was available. My grandson was hungry so he skipped that. Then we were treated to a delightful light lunch by the guide from "Living It". The pictures the guide and the instructor took were edited and sent directly to my daughter in Utah.
I understand few people take advantage of this opportunity. More should. The personal attention and instruction are amazing. The location is awesome. We learned a lot about the riding school as well.
Wonderful, fun and awesome day of riding in Barcelona! Barbara, who picked me up in the city center, and Carla, who I rode with, were both terrific--friendly, professional, energetic and accommodating. Couldn't imagine a better time--a great horse, stunning setting and delicious Catalon lunch. Plus, Barbara and Carla took pictures and shared them with me the same day, which was much appreciated. Highly recommend!
Another fantastic tour. The pick up was punctual and then we were introduced to the area we were going to. Upon arrival we were given a tour of the stable and then rode through the beautiful park coming to an awesome lookout over Barcelona. After the ride we were served a beautiful lunch on the terrace. What was amazing at this stable is they let you groom the horse and saddle him and we got to cool down the horses and brush them after the ride. We love horses so we just loved the experience. The two guides helped us get online tickets for Sagrada Familial and then drove us directly there. Service like this is fantastic. We were very impressed.
Had a fantastic time. Met by Barbara who took me on a leisurely drive into the Natural Park. I was the only booking that day and it was most rewarding for me. We arrived at the the riding school and stables and met with my riding guide, Clara. I was given a tour of the stables and an explanation of the activities they provide there. Then off to meet my horse, brushed, saddled and walked him to an arena for some lessons in riding skills. Then into the Natural Park for a pleasurable ride. Clara had wonderful knowledge of the types of trees growing and other vegetation. The ride also had amazing views over Barcelona. The ride itself is pleasant, fun and my horse was very well behaved. When arriving back at the stables, unsaddling of the horse, a treat for the horse and a hosing down to cool off, followed by a lovely Catalan style lunch. Thanks for a wonderful day.
This was an awesome day - we got picked up from central Barcelona and driven out into the country. We got to brush the horses and saddle them up, had a quick lesson in the arena then off out up hills to the most amazing views of Barcelona. This is an experience not to be missed. Lovely gentle ride, lovely girls that took us, and when we got back a real Catalonian lunch, complete with red wine in the sun! Lots of fun. And so different from the usual touristy-tours.
A fantastic experience! From start to finish the day was great.
First meeting the living it agent was easy, then travelling out into the mountains to meet the horses and staff was great. A bit of time getting to know the horse and saddling up before a very comprehensive lesson in the arena on how to "drive" the horse (essential for us as first timers), were all the ingredients needed to make the 1h30 tour around the beautiful scenery of the national park an absolute pleasure and fabulous day.The day was concluded with a little refreshment for the horse and traditional catalan fayre for the riders. Simply a great day that I will always remember.
I cannot recommend this excursion more highly....the best day in a city that offers much competition for having a great day!!!
Well done Barbara and team for the organistion and planning for this excursion.
I enjoyed horse riding in Natural Park where is suburb of Barcelona! It was good place for trekking.
My friend was first riding but she also had fun because we had lesson how to ride horses before starting trail. So anybody can enjoy this tour.
Horses at the stable are very cute and funny:) I love them!
Fantastic tour. Picked up in the city by Barbara where she took us up to the park. Then we were introduced to Carla and learned about the different horses they have at the center. We had a trot in the arena to make sure we had the basics down then went on a long trail around the area. Great fun!
I enjoyed so much! We learnt about Spanish horses and then went for a short ride in the arena. We did some practices there and finally we went for an amazing ride in the woods. Horses are so nice... I would do the tour again! Thank your for such a great morning! :)
Fantastic! Well run and our guide Carla was excellent. She was patient and explained us everything before going to the forest. It is obvious that she loves horses!
The horses were beautiful! I absolutely recommend this activity! For me it was a great break from the city.

Fantastic horse back riding experience both for beginners and the advance riders. My 12 years old had been learning to ride in HK for a year. This experience of up hill trotting was fun with the instructor. The tour guide Joan was excellent setting up table with wine and some good Spanish food.
Overall is a real good experience and enjoyable tour.
it was very nice tour with good horses led by excellent leader and trainer
