“Unforgettable Experience”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

My 8 yr old daughter and I have just returned from a 5 day holiday, which included learning to ride with Liz at Sierra Pelada.Both novice riders we were put completely at ease by Liz's patient coaching technique, 30 years experience of all things equine and her beautifully well mannered horses and pony. Watching Liz interact with both horse and rider is mesmerising, she is totally in tune with her horses and knows exactly how to reassure first time riders. We even managed a gentle trek to pick cherries - more ended up in our tummies than in the bucket. Liz has a fantastic local knowledge, a zest for the true Spanish way of life and a passion for her horses that is a joy to behold. She also has some fantastic anecodotes that she really should write down as I am certain they would make a best seller! Thanks so much for everything, hoping to see you again soon.

“Riding with Liz close to Montefrio”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

We (family of 4, with 2 kids 10 and 13 years old) spent 3 fantastic days learning to ride with Liz in Sierra Pelada. Liz is very knowledgeable and takes great care of all individual needs, and I appreciated especially how good she took care of our children. I was actually a bit scared of horses, but that disappeared quickly during the first day. The horses are very well taken care of too, something that was important to us. If you want to learn or just enjoy riding in a family run place with scenic views and a lot of personal attention adapted to your needs, this is the place.

“Crocs came back”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Back for the second time and not disappointed. Picnic ride enjoyed by all. Lovely company and great horses. This time we stayed on the coast and travelled up. Not too far and a lovely day out. Shame it was a Sunday and the shops were shut, really wanted some olives from Montefrio.

“Amazing Winter Ride”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

My girlfriend and I just returned from four days in Montefrio, two of which we spent at Sierra Pelada.

Prior to our arrival, Liz arranged an itinerary for the two days taking in a huge amount of the surrounding area, including the top of a mountain (dress warmly for Decemeber trips!) and the nearby town of Illora. The views of Sierra Nevada were breathtaking and the horses (Luna and Chico) were a total joy both for myself with less experience and my girlfriend who has been riding for many years.

Liz was a fantastic guide and we really enjoyed ambling through the pine forests swapping funny stories. An excellent couple of days to finish off 2013!
