    Amazing experience
    I had a riding lesson with Jorja and it was an amazing experience. Jorja was very friendly, patient and knowledgeable. Everyone at the stables were welcoming and friendly. Cannot wait for my lesson next week. Highly recommend.

    Fantastic
    Incredible service and a fantastic hack. They helped me arrange a proposal at sunset up in the hills, surrounded by mountains and sea. Alise, our instructor was fantastic, taking photos for us, the horses were incredible even for a relative newbie like me

    Absolutely fantastic
    We cannot rate these stables highly enough. My two children aged 9 and 12 had an hours lesson and learnt more in the hour than they’ve learned in months in the UK. The staff were lovely, they had Alicia and Georgia who were calm, caring and experienced and offered some great tips for future riding. The horses and other animals are well looked after and there is a lovely vibe there. We have already booked a return visit. A must if you are horse crazy.

Started lessons with the lovely Jorja a few weeks ago. She is an amazing instructor and has a vast amount of knowledge, experience and patience. The stables are beautiful and spotless and everyone is super friendly. I highly recommend Jorja and the riding school . Thank you and I look forward to my next lesson. Nicola xx

Great place friendly welcome they was all English which dosent matter but makes life easier to communicate as our Spanish isn’t the best although we try
We went on a 1 hour trek through the woods
The horses was lovely and well looked after
Wish we had done a half or full day trek now as my daughter loved it
Recommend for when in mijas
Only 8 mins in a taxi from la Cala centre
There is a bar onsite if you wish to have a drink onsite

Cost was €35 each for the hour

Absolutely fantastic!!
Stunning location, beautiful, well-cared for horses and friendly, helpful staff!
We had lessons with the amazing Alicia - she was super lovely, full of knowledge and tips and constantly pushed us to achieve more, knowing we were capable, even if we didn’t yet know it.
I feel I have learned more in the past week than I have in a year of lessons.
Will absolutely come back again when I can!

Had a fantastic afternoon out hacking with Kyah, she was a lovely host. The three horses provided for my family were perfect for our limited horse experience. Would definitely recommend a day hacking at Finca la Alegria.

Booked my daughters (ages 11 and 7) on an hours hack through the woods. Both inexperienced riders, but comfortable enough on a horse for them to go further than riding around paddock. Ava led them on their walk. My girls had a wonderful time, a great experience for them. Thankyou.
