We're pleased to welcome an exciting addition to our riding holidays in Castilla and Leon: the Camino de Santiago Pilgrimage Route. We begin our epic journey at the famous monastery of San Juan de Ortega. This monastery was built as an information point to the pilgrims who walked the route.
We then travel west towards the coast and the jewel in the crown of the pilgrim's route: Santiago de Compostela. En-route we will encounter ancient Roman villages and the climb the magnificent mountains of Leon staying in small and comfortable hotels and guesthouses along the way.
The horses are all Pure Spanish (PRE), forward-going and very responsive and ridden in Spanish style saddles. The food is typical of the region, lovingly prepared and freshly cooked. Your host on this route has bred these beautiful horses for many years and is knowledgeable and passionate about the history and culture of this area.
This Spanish horse riding holiday will appeal to riders who are interested in a combination of scenery and culture with comfortable hotels, good company and beautiful horses.
