Wow where to start with this incredible experience. Just driving up into the mountains is amazing and then you reach Rumana’s stables set in such a beautiful location. As others have said - what makes this experience special is the time you spend before and after riding, caring for, and getting to know your horse. I had Mole and he was a gentle and kind character. We had a wonderful ride for 90 mins and as we all had experience we did trotting and cantering. The scenery and views are spectacular. Rumana was a wonderful guide and it’s clear she cares so deeply for her horses. I’m so glad I booked with North Ride Ibiza instead of a bigger and more commercial alternative. Thanks Rumana, an unforgettable experience!

Great Ride. Don't miss this great experience. Rumana is wonderful and always puts safety first. Her horses are well cared for and very polite. I am an intermediate rider and enjoyed every minute. What made this extra special is that Rumana lets the rider groom the horse and get to know him/her a little before heading out on the ride. If you only visit the popular beaches and cities on this island you will miss the best part which is North Ibiza, wonderful horses and a great person.

I booked 3 rides of 2 hours and those rides were all simply amazing. I enjoyed every bit of it, from the grooming till the canter and the lovely nature. Rumana is a very caring person for both you as rider and the horses. I’m an intermediate rider and I experienced the horses really reliable and well trained. Worth every penny!

The ride was great - as the other people have said you groom and get to know your horse beforehand, and this time isn't taken off the ride time which is refreshing from my experience! I'm an experienced rider and Romana made sure that we were happy with our horses before we left (there were just 2 of us in the group), and the trails are quite steep at times but the horses are clearly used to it and the ride is lovely and quiet with a few canters and trots through the bushes.

It is much cooler in the hills so remember long sleeves (and to protect yourself from the spiky bushes!)

Thanks Romana

Rumana takes the welfare of her horses and of her riders very seriously, with safety at the core of everything she does, but not at the expense of a very enjoyable and special experience.
Her stables are remote but she provides excellent instructions on how to get there. The views over the mountains and down to the sea are simply stunning and you get a sense of being out in the wild. We are a family of 3- 2 adults (1 complete beginner) and quite an experienced 11 year old rider. Rumana took great care to match us with our horses and decide on the best order for the trail, which worked out well. The beginner was closely supervised whilst the others had a bit more challenge of managing their own horses independently. Like many others who have reviewed, we enjoyed the opportunity to groom the horses and get to know them a bit (tip: take water with you as it is hot out there and wear t-shirts with sleeves as the pines can scratch in some places) before we set out.
We set off around 6pm ish as it started to cool down a bit and were out between 1.5 and 2 hours. We all enjoyed it and it seemed to me excellent value for money.

My man and me are first time riders and had book the best of the North ride. But by the time we got there it was pretty stormy in the Ibiza hill's, so between Rumana and our self we said we go for the sorter ride cause of the weather. Rumana help to get to know our Horses my man got Moll and I got Saratan, after connecting and brushing our horses clean we got going. At first it was super windy on top of the hill's, but once we got in the valley's it was nice and relaxing. We had a lot of fun with Rumana, she was a good guide and kept us safe during the hole ride. Even if the our horses wanted to do their own thing at time, it was not hard to get them back on track. The views where amazing on top of the hill, even with cloudy sky's. We both enjoyed every minute of it and where really happy to meet and ride with Rumana. It was nice as well that it was just the 3 of us and not a big group whit mixed rider, so all in all prefect for us as a couple. We will be back some time soon.

We had the pleasure of meeting Rumana and her lovely horses today, she was a perfect host from start to finish! We started our experience by getting to know the horses with some brushing, we were both slightly nervous as we are complete beginners but Rumana put us at ease by giving very forward and clear instructions. We then got on the horses and got to explore the beauty of North Ibiza, Rumana took us down to some really scenic places! No better way to spend an afternoon!

I have just returned from a 4 night trip to Ibiza with my two friends and our intentions were to make the most of our time in addition to the usual clubbing. We thought a morning horse ride would be a great way to see more of the island and experience something a little different. Rumana was great from start to finish and although we had a little trouble getting there at first she came down to get us herself and upon us leaving saw that she spoke with the local taxis to ensure this would be a one off. The best thing to do if you are travelling from Bossa or San Antonio by taxi would be to get dropped off in Sant Joan town by the church then use one of their local taxis as they know where to go. The area is beautiful and we loved brushing the horses and getting used to them a little before our ride. Rumana made us feel very comfortable on our horses despite two of us being beginners going up high terrains. The Mountain Magic experience was just enough and perfect for us lasting a couple of hours all together. The views were amazing and just so worth it. I would definitely recommend North Ride to anyone considering booking especially as other nearby horse riding places book multiple groups to form larger groups per session where as here it is more of a one to one and will just be your group.

At the mid-point of our mountain hack we stopped at the highest point in all Ibiza. The horses merrily chomped the vegetation as we feasted our eyes on the 360° panoramic views over the island and the Med. This was a real highpoint for us on our stay in Ibiza. We would recommend a half-day hacking with Rumana, and her stable of Duke, Duchess, Lady, Moll and Seratan.

We arrived at midday on a beautiful day in mid-April. It was well over 20°C so do remember to come properly dressed to avoid sunburn even outside of the summer season. We borrowed jodhpurs and riding hats, which were needed. The drive up from Ibiza Town from where we staying took us through the entire island. And then we climbed up on the Portinatx road into the mountains with banging views. It was easy to find as we just popped on Google Maps. The very last bit is a right at the horses' paddocks. The road there looks a bit scary. But just keep going!

The set-up is idyllic and there were lots of wows and oohs and aahs. The horses were being shod when we arrived. Then we met out steeds, fetched them down from their paddock, brushed them down and tacked up. My daughter, 12, rides at a stables every week. I, on the other hand, am a holiday rider. My only concern was being a bit saddle sore. So I think the three-hour hack we went for was enough for my seat.

The ride was brilliant. Not for those afraid of heights! The views were stunning! We soon trotted and cantered at every opportunity. Even though there are limited chances to do so in mountain terrain. We rode for at least three hours and were more than ready for home when it came. Then we washed down the horses and hung out afterwards chatting in the coolth of the stables.

In all, our €100 each was really good value. We were there for well over five hours. In the end, it was a whole day out. Rumana was a lovely host and very chatty. It felt we knew each other well by the end. Moreover, she gave me praise, which is really important for occasional riders like me. I've been on hacks in the Egyptian desert, the Swedish forests (home), the South Downs (also home), and many more. But this will be a day to remember. Not only because of our lovely host and the beautiful setting, but also because of the horses. There's nothing worse than riding on horses that just play follow-the-leader. These were all characterful and beautiful horses, but with years of experience of mountain terrain. I rode Moll (gelding) and he needed a lot of encouragement. But then was always up for a canter.

In sum, the highpoint of my trip to Ibiza. I'll be going away and doing some riding between holidays this summer. I cannot think of a more de-stressing experience. Nor of a more lovely place. Inspiring.

We had a very lovely morning grooming and riding Rumana's horses. Rumana is very keen on keeping her horses happy and healthy and it is really fun to have the chance to brush the horses and to get to know them a bit before leaving the premises for a ride with the most amazing views. We will definitely come back soon.
