My two teenage daughters wanted to do a little horse riding for an hour or so whilst we were on holiday in Spain, and Sierra Pelada was recommended to us. Booking was simple and straight-forward as it is run by Liz, who is English, so no language problems, and is efficient at contacting you to sort out arrangements. We arrived late as I had taken a wrong turning, but Liz kindly and calmly re-directed us, and didn't bat an eyelid as we arrived about 45mins late.
Kitting out with boots, hats, body protectors etc was fine, with the inevitable form to fill in, and then the girls got on with the riding part. I'm not qualified to comment on the horses, or the ride, but the feedback from the girls (late teen and early twenties, and reasonably experienced riders) was very positive - they thought the horses were great, especially the white "Spanish" one (there, betraying my complete lack of knowledge in all things equestrian). They said the ride was great, including lots of galloping in lovely surroundings. Because I'm a cheapskate I only paid for an hour (despite the rate being very reasonable), but the location etc suggests that longer rides through the country would be fantastic. Personally, I was more interested in the Newtonian Reflector in the yard, and I reckon the solution is a moonlight ride for the girls while I do a bit of star gazing!
In addition to all the horsey stuff above, we were going onto Granada for the afternoon, and Liz was great at telling us the best bits to go to - much, much better than wandering around aimlessly in the heat trying to find somewhere to eat, drink and shop. Liz, if you read this, then thanks very much for the advice, and we had a great time in Granada.
All in all an excellent experience, great location, great horses/riding, very helpful owner. If we are in that area again we'll definitely go back - probably for a longer ride. Many thanks to Liz for a great experience.
