We accompany riders on treks through and around the stunning woodlands and mountains surrounding El Chorro. There’s a beautiful selection of off-road routes, through pine forests, olive groves and open countryside; with views across to Malaga and the coast, the nearby lakes and sheer mountains. Treks range from 2 hours up to a full day (6 hrs incl. picnic) and we do a 2 day trek with over night camping food and drink incl.

Had a fantastic ride through the wooded mountain sides of El Chorro with Marc. As a total beginner I was very nervous about riding unfamiliar horses but Pilgrim was a very calm horse and eased my worries in no time. Marc was also very attentive and was clearly in control through the entire ride and made me feel looked after. The scenery is stunning and Marc was a great tour guide and took all the photos and videos I wanted. I really appreciated Marcs local knowledge of the areas we rode in, he had lots of interesting stories based around the areas we rode! You can tell Marc, Ali and Lucas take a great deal of pride in their horses as they're all well looked after and have great temperaments. We finished off the ride with a nice cold beer at their house, perfect! Will be returning next year for sure, thankyou!

Marc's just a great guy that shows you the most scenic views of the el chorro valleys - on the back of a horse and up and down on shallow trails! It's perfect to get to know the different crags for climbing if you are into it.

This was my first ever horseback riding and it was a lot of fun. Marc is calm and will teach you the basics in minutes. Then of we go!

After 30-40 min I even tried galloping!

I highly recommend Marc and Horse Riding El Chorro
