What You Can Expect
When you reach the stables, your guide will give you a quick safety briefing and show you how to put on your riding hat, before helping you into the saddle for a practice session around the riding arena and show you basic command such as walk and halt for approximately 30 minutes. Every effort will be made to ensure that you’re well matched to your horse, with novice riders given the gentlest ones.
Setting off at a leisurely pace, follow your guide on horseback along secluded roads to this incredible park. Here, you’ll ride through the Catalan countryside typified by leafy forests, lush pine groves and rolling hills. Your guide’s expert knowledge of the local terrain means that you’ll be taken on the best trails to suit your ability.
While this riding tour is aimed at novice- to intermediate-level riders, should you be more advanced, your guide will give you the opportunity to trot or canter through this gorgeous countryside. After roughly 1.5 hours of riding, return to the stables and help the groom unsaddle your horse.
Before returning to Barcelona, sit down and relax with the rest of your group to enjoy a light lunch of bread, Spanish omelet and cheeses, while sharing tales of your unforgettable horseback adventure in Spain.
This tour is organised by Living It. "It" referring to the way of life lived by the Catalans. I had this tour in December. Despite the gloomy weather, my horseback riding tour experience was simply magnificent. The tour started off with our friendly tour guide waiting for us at Barcelona Central. We were driven out of the city to a nature park where the ranch warmly welcomed us. Our tour guide was very friendly and told us all about Barcelona along the way. The horses from the ranch are very well trained. Our trainer, Carla, was very knowledgeable in her field of expertise in horse riding and she patiently taught us the basics of horse riding. After a short training session in the ranch, we set off on a trail that led us to the top of a hill in the nature park where we had a view of the entire Barcelona city, which definitely took my breath away. To me, this was the highlight of the entire tour. We did not stay for long though. After a few pictures, we were told that it was time to ride back to the ranch already. Maybe this portion of the tour can be improved on a little. The tour was also enriching in terms of the skills to horse ride, as well as the different types of plants/trees in the nature park, which Carla explained to us in great detail. There was a lot of hands on activities throughout the tour. We got to help out putting on and taking off the saddle for our horses, scrub them, feed them, etc. Ending off the tour, we were presented certificates of completion and had home-made local lunch prepared for us on a beautifully decorated table. Not only was it appealing to the eye, it tasted as great too. Overall, I highly recommend this tour to people who loves nature, has interest in horse riding, and who wants to experience the culture of the locals. The hospitality provided by both our guide and our trainer was simply heart warming. We felt well taken care off. Living It was also very efficient - they emailed us our edited photos on the same day of the tour!
