Turene i Extremadura er en reise til hjertet av det gamle Spania og denne regionen har noen av landets beste ruiner fra Romertiden og vakre gamle middelalder landsbyer. Området har en tidløs sjarm og her finner du også Extremaduras mest dramatiske område, Monfraque nasjonalparken, med en stor skog omgitt av åser med eiketrær, elver og reservoarer. Monfrague er et paradis for dyrelivet og er en fugleelskers drøm da det er et naturlig levested for en rekke arter, blant annet kongeørnen og gribb.

Ridning i Extremadura

En varm velkomst venter deg av Emilio og Mamen som med rette er stolte av deres spanske hester. De har veldig godt gemytt, er trygge, stø på foten og fremadgående som gjør dem til en fornøyelse å ri.

I lunjsen som er piknik kan du nyte paella, iberisk skinke og ost fra La Mancha, etterfulgt av sista i solen.

På alle turene er ridning på vei begrenset til et minimum og tempoet er avslappet som gir deg tid til å nyte omgivelsene, men det vil også bli mulighet for noen lange trav og galoppstrekninger.

Extremadura riding holiday

Den største fordelen med klimaet i denne regionen, fra en utendørs entusiast sitt synspunkt, er at det generelt er mere solrikt og tørrere enn i andre spanske regioner slik som Pyreneene, som betyr at du kan nyte ridningen her på nesten alle tider av året.

Det er 4 forskjellige turer å velge i mellom, se Program flippen.

Alle turene er guidet av den erfarne eieren Emilio Rodriguez. Emilio er en rolig og dyktig rytter og har et spesielt forhold til sine hester som gjør at de er velbalanserte, tillitsfulle og velopdragne og er en fonøyelse å ri og omgås.

På turene kan du ri mellom 4 – 7 timer hver dag og det er derfor viktig å være i god form. Hestene er en blanding av Hispano-Arabere, Spanske, Andalusiske PRE (Pura Raza Española) og Andaluserkrysninger med ca 152 – 168 cm i mankehøyde. De har et godt temperament og er stø på foten på de steinete stiene i fjellene. De er villige og fremadgående på de flate og sandige strekningene i dalene som gjør dem til en fornøyelse å ri.

Emilio avler og kjøper hestene sine for å trene og skolere dem selv. Som et resultat er de fornøyde, elskede og behagelige å ri, med en entusiastisk gange og en lett samlet galopp. De rir med komfortabelt engelske saler og hodelag. Rumpebeskytter (seat savers) og saltasker er også tilgjengelig. Du må kunne beherske skritt, trav og rolig galopp utendørs.

Å engasjere seg er av nøkkelelementene på disse turene og du vil være ansvarlig for å fore, strigle og sale på din egen hest hver dag – men det er alltid hjelp å få hvis du skulle trenge det.

Maksimum vekt for ryttere er ca 90 kg og normalt er det maksimum 10 personer på en gruppe.

Deres collie hund, Brasas, fortjener også å bli nevnt, da hun ofte vil lede veien hvor terrenget tillater det og sikrer at hver deltaker i gruppen blir mødt med hennes logrende hale, som både den første tingen om morningen og det siste om kvelden.

Du kan velge mellom 4 turer i dette området:

Conquistadors Ride

The following is the proposed itinerary but please note that changes are possible due to weather and local conditions.

Day One

Your transfer from Madrid will take you to the old town of Trujillo and there will be time to look around this beautiful town.

The old town originally was settled on the granite batholith and dates bath to the Roman times. The town contains many medieval and renaissance buildings which were built by many of the conquistadors born in the city. The most important monuments are the castle, the church of Santa Maria (13th century) and the church of San Francisco.

Later over dinner you get to know your guide and chat about the week ahead.

Day Two

After breakfast it is time to meet your horses, saddle up and set off for your first morning ride.

This mornings ride takes you through the ‘Dehesa’ which is a multifunctional agrosylvopastoral system. This is used primarily for grazing but also produces a variety of products such as honey, cork and firewood. This also provides a protected habitat for endangered species such as the Iberian lynx and Spanish Imperial eagle.

After lunch you have a short ride towards Garciaz.

When you arrive at your overnight accommodation you will help to look after the horses, feeding them and helping to turn them out into their fields/paddock for the night. Later meet for supper at c.9pm. This will be the usual plan each evening when you reach your new accommodation for the night.

Riding time approx 6 hours

Day Three

In the morning you help to catch your horse, groom and feed them (this is the same each morning during the trail). Then it is time to have breakfast before heading back outside to tack your horse up and set off.
Today you get to ride through these ancient Mediterranean Forests.
After lunch you will cross the Villuercas mountains.

Dinner and overnight at a guesthouse.

Riding time approx 6 hours.

Day Four

During the day you will have chance to admire the impressive Villuercas landscape. It would be handy to have your camera easily accessible so you don’t miss a photo opportunity. Sightings of vultures, Eagles, Azure-winged Magpies, Red-billed Choughs, Shrikes and Ravens are often seen.

Villuercas has been declared Geopark (UNESCO, 2011) because of its Cultural and Natural Heritage and, of course, the great geological value of its relief. This is a very rural region containing fields with stone walls.
After lunch during the afternoon there is an opportunity to enjoy plenty of canters.

Dinner and overnight at a guesthouse.

Riding time approx. 6 hours.

Day Five
