SUMMARY OF THE TRIP top

Christine and Paul Hartfield, together with a team of helpful, friendly staff and 20+ fabulous horses, own and run Hacienda Horses an exclusive, luxury horse riding holidays in Andalucía, Spain. With a maximum of 10 guests at any one time, means you are assured of a very special, personal experience with riding tailored to your needs, and a peaceful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of normal life. In 2008 they moved to Cortijo Uribe with their two horses and two dogs and started renovation work. Whilst working on this project they started to attract rescue horses and dogs to the house. People also asked for riding lessons, and soon locals were employed to help. As more 4 legged animals arrived they set up their foundation and began to re-home, dogs and re-educate horses. Once the hacienda itself was fully renovated, it felt only right to invite guests to stay, to share in their passion and stay at their beautiful home and have an amazing time riding in Spain, combining both morning hacking out and afternoon dressage and jumping lessons.

 

Together for 40 years Christine is an accomplished rider and former eventing champion and has ridden for all her life. She has also schooled several riders to winning performances. Paul is a keen rally driver and has used his many entrepreneurial & engineering skills to renovate the Cortijo & create the riding school. Cortijo Uribe is in a truly wonderful setting, with acres of olive groves, vineyards & pine forests to relax and ride their lovely horses, right in the heart of the Andalusian countryside.

Spain Holidays Testimonials

Karen & Orlagh on Epona, Spain

Myself and Orlagh just wanted to thank you for the most wonderful break. The horses were fantastic and the instruction was excellent. Cati managed to work our lessons to suit two extremes - a fit and confident 13 year old wanting to improve her dressage and a very rusty and slightly nervous mum getting back
