My idea of heaven - riding a fully trained Spanish stallion in the sunshine with lovely music in the background and a view across valleys to the hills of LaMancha. This riding centre is run by an English couple who set the standard for Iberian horses in the UK then followed their "Impossible Dream" and set up a stud and training centre - www.yeguadaiberica.com here several years ago. Richard and Sue Lust are incredibly knowledgeable and delight in sharing their knowledge - they also run a Spanish tack shop and so can help with getting kitted out properly. But most of all they love their horses (actually all their animals) and walking into a barn with 10+ stallions watching you with calm, happy eyes is just amazing. Its not all hard work in the school - long rides (yes, on the stallions) out into the countryside - no roads unless you count the village where you stop for a drink - and peaceful, mostly through olive groves and fruit fields - when the humans stop talking all you can hear is the horses and the birds - totally relaxing. Cannot recommend it enough for people who want to truly learn to ride classically and with lightness.
