"Worth every minute "

Everything from the scenery, our guide Linn, the accommodations, hosts, support with the airport pickup, food, horses, was unbelievable. The people we met on this trip are all full of life, kind and generous.

I’m certainly coming back !!

The guide, the horses, the landscapes. The accommodation during the ride - the pool. Emily at the guest house was also very nice.

"Fantastic riding holiday"

This was one of my best holiday experiences. The riding routes were beautiful, our guide Tanja was lovely and knowledgeable and the horse I was given (Molly) matched my riding skill very well. The quality of the accommodation and the food by far surpassed my expectations. Our host, Emily, was a genuinely kind and down-to-earth person and it was a true pleasure staying at her place. I would definitely like to return next year :)

"The most amazing trip"

I had the most amazing solo holiday, I was lucky enough to stay at Sharon’s, Nathan’s & Emily’s accommodation they were all incredible and so welcoming & friendly. Everything was so well organised. Sally was a dream to ride, our guide Layla was lovely and the views from the mountains can’t really be put in to words, didn’t want this trip to ever end!!!

"Fantastic!"

We just had the best time! Everything was very organised and we felt extremely well looked after. The 3 different accommodations were all lovely…Sharon, Laly and Emily are all very welcoming, excellent hosts..and cooks! 😋 We wanted for nothing.

Then the staff and horses at Caballo Blanco were equally fantastic. Everyone was friendly and helpful and the three different guides we had (Lila, Fin and Tania), couldn’t do enough…especially Fin as we had him for 3 days. We felt thoroughly confident and safe in his hands. We also loved all the different horses we rode, they were all pretty bomb proof, easy to ride and fit.

And then the weather and the scenery was just superb! As it’s Spring, the wildflowers were out of this world! I’ve never seen anything like it, swathes of hundreds of different varieties and colours..it was simply beautiful. We felt very lucky to have such a special week..thanks so much to everyone who made it possible 😊

"A wonderful experience that’ll stay with us forever "

We were a groups of 2 mum and 2 girls 13 & 8 and the team accommodated the needs of us all. It’s a stunning beautiful place and the horses are looked after to a very high standard. You could see everything was in good order. Sarah cares a lot about her animals and staff which is clear to see. The happy relaxed professional atmosphere puts you at ease.

"A beautiful holiday "

Having not ridden for 25 years, I was slightly anxious about taking this trip. I should not have been, as the whole experience was great from start to finish. Guides Finn and Lila were knowledgeable and helpful and good company. The horses were ideally suited to their jobs and the scenery was outstanding.

Everything was very well organised and my hosts (3 different places) were all really good.

"Great holiday on horseback "

However, we still had a lovely time at Caballo Blanco on their 6 day holiday (which includes 4 days of riding). The stable looked relatively simple but was well organised and the horses were lovely, with a wide range from Andalusians to Cobs. Despite not knowing much more information other than our riding experience and weight, the horses were very well matched to us which meant that we felt very comfortable throughout our rides. They were all very calm, didn’t spook easily despite high winds, and very sure footed on steep terrain.

The staff were all lovely and our accommodation was great (we stayed at Emily’s for 3 nights and Lally’s for 2).

Overall, we had a great time and would highly recommend, although perhaps not to complete beginners due to slightly challenging terrain and highly changeable weather conditions up in the mountains.

"Fulfilling a dream"

The horses were well taken care of and they took care of me. I liked being shown how to tack the horses before and after the rides. The leader was very considerate in finding me mounting places. And I enjoyed that we rode to our next homestay. Food and company was very good and very welcoming. The team for transfers were very accommodating, friendly and supportive.

Everything. The accomodation at the guest house, Steve picking me up and dropping me off for my rides. the incredible location, the quality of the rides, the horses (especially mini Meg) and their skill and training, the guides and how welcoming and accomodating the experience was overall.

"Incredible horseriding experience in the Alpujarras"

I had an amazing ride and stay - everything was super organised right down to the transfers from Granada and from the accommodation to the ranch. The accommodation was fantastic with exceptional food served and were amazing about my dietary requirements. The horses are very well looked after and Sarah picks the right horse for the rider! The scenery is spectacular - a perfect way to explore the countryside. I'll definitely be back :)

"An amazing adventure and a fantastic riding experience"

Everything about this trip was just brilliant. Communication with the hosts pre-arrival was excellent and the whole trip was all very well organised. Everyone at Caballo Blanco and the accommodations was so welcoming and kind, and they all went to great lengths to show me a fabulous time. The horses were lovely and well cared for, all well-behaved and incredibly capable and fit to handle the rocky terrain. Harry and Blossom were the perfect match for me and we got on terrifically. Lila, Fin and Linda were wonderful guides, so knowledgeable about the horses and the region, and fun to spend time with. The Alpujarra Guesthouse is situated in a magical mountain setting, a traditional Spanish farmhouse equipped with all comforts and amenities. Emily was a superb host, her cuisine was delicious, all meals prepared with love and using fresh local produce. We rode a different route each day and passed through quaint mountain villages, climbed the hills on ancient mule trails, crossed over cool mountain streams, and through the many olive and almond groves. The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful and the snow-capped Sierra Nevada peaks were a spectacular sight. I particularly enjoyed the scenic trail to and from Lally’s Guesthouse, our night-away excursion, where we were greeted with a warm welcome and enjoyed a magnificent stay. Overall, I had the most wonderful time and I can recommend this trip 100%. A truly memorable experience, not to be missed.

"Excellent and peaceful holiday"

The horses were very well trained and calm. My guide Judith guided me perfectly throughout the entire trip. All the places I stayed and the people there made me feel at home and had great food. At first I was a little scared about going on a horseback riding holiday alone in another country. But I had an extremely enjoyable, peaceful and adventurous holiday. Jane, Steve and Emily, who made my transfers to my accommodation, are very helpful and friendly people. Sharon and Bongo are equally excellent. Thank you for all this wonderful organization :)

"Most extraordinary holiday of a lifetime!"

The best thing about this holiday is the people and their care and attention to detail. Everyone is so kind, friendly and helpful and wanting to make this experience a great one!

The horses are incredibly well looked after and amazingly fit. Judith our instructor was very knowledgeable and I felt completely at ease with her leadership.

The scenery was out of this world, breathtaking! One amazing memory was riding through all the wild herbs in the rain. The rain triggered the herbs to release their amazing scents and it was absolutely gorgeous!

If you're considering this kind of a holiday, do it! You absolutely won't regret it!

"Memorable experience "

Even as a beginner I was absolutely amazed by all that was possible. Never felt unsafe although the mule track was steep and rocky. Cantering through the olive fields, the steep climbs and amazing views. Definitely recommend! Accommodations were spot on in terms of what you need after a long day in the heat. Thanks to Linda for being a great and relaxed guide and thanks to Emily for the great food!

"Amazing experience all round"

The entire team at Caballo Blanco were friendly and accommodating, making us feel very at home. Our guides over the three riding days - Fin and Tanya, were both very knowledgeable about the area, culture, and the horses, and made our days riding a lot of fun. The horses were all wonderful, very well cared for and incredibly fit. They were sure footed some of the steep and rocky terrain and we loved the experience of tacking up and caring for our horses over the 3 trekking. We all have plenty of riding experience and were very pleased with our matches (Coco, Johnnie, and Ozzy) - it was sad to leave them behind.

Our airport transfers were all pre-arranged and easy to find, Simon was lovely and pointed out interesting features of the area to us on the drive there and back. The guest houses in which we stayed were much nicer than we even expected - Emily's place is in a divine plot of land in the mountains and her cooking was gourmet! We looked forward to her breakfasts each morning, and even when eating inside due to poor weather she made sure we had all we could need. Lally's accommodation which we stayed in during our second night was also fabulous, and the pool was a highlight.

All in all, we were very well taken care of and enjoyed the beautiful views with our horses. There were some steeper rides and we particularly liked the high mountain ride which gave us the opportunity to have plenty of canters. I would highly recommend booking if you have the chance!

"Amazing riding in Spain"

The team at Caballo Blanco was wonderful. What a group of nice people. Of course we arrived and our luggage did not. Simon our driver was more than happy to stop so we could purchase everything we would need. Then by the time we made it to the guest house it was almost midnight. Even though it was way past the dinner hour Emily happily made us something to eat! That is how it began, everyone on the team helping make us comfortable. Horses were amazing. The views in the mountains are breathtaking. I would highly recommend this trip!

"It ticked all the boxes. "

I came back yesterday. I loved, loved, loved it. It was my first solo horse riding holiday. The mountain views were absolutely amazing. The hospitality exceeded my expectations. My accommodation was comfortable and clean. My horse Blossom was the perfect match for me. Unfortunately I didn’t get to formally meet Sarah. Anáis was my instructor (there was no option to choose Anáis’ name from the drop box above) who was friendly & knowledgeable of the local area. I can’t fault this trip at all and highly recommend it.

"Wonderful experience riding in the Sierra Nevada"

Our guide Judith was absolutely brilliant. We couldn't have asked for anyone better to introduce us to the beautiful landscape on such great horses. She was lovely company, so helpful and really ensured we had the best time. We loved the different trails we went on each day and we stopped for lunch in glorious settings. Judith knew each horse so well and we felt in very safe hands. Thank you Judith! We were allocated the perfect horse for our ability and level of experience. It was bliss to spend a few days somewhere so remote, unspoiled, high in the mountains.

"Unbelievable experience"

Everything! The horses were the best and very well looked after and well behaved. The two guides on the treks were excellent, professional, helpful, friendly, informative. Both hosts were outstandingly welcoming and Lally's place is pure paradise. The scenery is impressive. Want to come back earlier in the year when all the trees are in blossom.

100% recommend, I do hope to find myself back in the future! As a solo traveller I always felt comfortable and safe. Everyone was so lovely and easy to get along with! The accomodation was beautiful Emily and Lally are wonderful hosts and excellent cooks. It's super cute they make lunch for you, I love a picnic. The guides were super, they were really easy to get along with, pointing out interesting plants and wildlife! The horses were beautiful, well presented and well up for the task of taking us around the mountains. Can't say enough about the scenery it's breathtaking!

"5+1"

I was delighted to be able to join a 5 day trek during the time I had available. Sarah was very accommodating, and so was Emily at the Guest House, so I was also able to add in an extra day of trekking ahead of the main trek. Everything, from start to finish of my time at Caballo Blanco, was epic. The horses are suited to their work: fit, willing, superbly well cared for. The terrain is challenging and the horses are up to meet every challenge. The guides were knowledgeable, personable, attentive to both equines and humans - excellent in every way. The arrangements for food and accommodations were great. The hosts were welcoming and sincerely interested in meeting all our needs. All the many details that must come together to make a trekking holiday as memorable as this one, were all handled with graciousness, good humour and thoroughness. I heartily recommend Caballo Blanco to anyone thinking of going on an equine adventure in Spain!

"Fantastic family riding holiday"

Well trained fit trustworthy horses which we grew to love over the four days. It was brilliant to be able to ride with my kids and Caballo Blanco has cobs and ponies to accommodate everyone. The accommodation and food at Lally’s was excellent - they made such an effort with our vegetarian diet and were super hospitable. The day 2 and day 4 routes were amazing - day 4 high in the mountains with our lovely horses and great guide was a superb way to end the trip. Guides were excellent and Fin in particular really knowledgeable.

"adventure worth the money"

People where extremely friendly and accommodating! The scenery was amazing. The guide was really really nice- always helpful and patient!

Also I was completely blown away by the places we were staying- much better than in pictures! The food was top level!

As an experienced horse rider can tell that the horses where taken a really good care. Also the horses themselves where very calm and obedient. The saddle was comfortable- so didn't get tired even after long hours of ridding

I really really liked this tour- will have memories of this adventure for all my life! Thus would totally recommend.

Andrew Williams

from Australia, February 2023

Everyone was welcoming and accommodating. The horses were all wonderful, Mark and Lally both provided fantastic accommodation and I greatly appreciated the effort the both went to provide their beautiful homes to me.

Judith was an excellent guide and showed me the very best the valley had to offer and was pleasant company for the rides

Milda Svagzdiene

"The most impressive vacations I ever had :D"

Sarah is really perfect at matching the rider and the horse. We were very different level riders starting with non riders and ending with those having 5–10 years of experience. All of us felt comfortable and confident on our horses. They were so calm, confident and friendly. It was fun riding them, as well as pasturing them or sharing an apple during our stops for lunch.

Our guide was perfect, he told us a lot not only about the horses but about the region and its nature, local traditions. Fin always checked if we were comfortable on our horses. And even those who never rode before had fun trotting and even cantering :D.

We had wonderful weather and could enjoy mountain rides.

Emily cooked deliciuos meals for us using fresh local products and broke all the stereotypes about what we do not like: kids thought they do not like dates, sweet potatoes and goat cheese, and all of us were sceptical about vegetarian food :D; now we know we were wrong. Lally & Family were spoiling us with good comforting satiating dinners after all day riding.

My strongest recommendations!

"Beyond Words..."

From the word go we could not fault Caballo Blanco.

We were picked up at the airport and transferred to our first night's accommodation which was a lovely little mountain guest house, we had a delightful room and the food was exceptional. The following morning we had a delicious breakfast and then we were driven down to the stables to meet our guide Danielle and our horses, Sally and Coco, and set off on our first day's trek. The views were stunning and the horses were brilliant, they sure know their job. We had lots of opportunities to canter, a nice long break for lunch and the option of two routes we could choose, naturally we chose the longer one to get as much riding in as we could!

We rode to our next night's accommodation which again, was absolutely delightful, the host was lovely, the food was delicious and it gave us a chance to chat to the other couple that were riding separately from us and the guides which was really nice.

The following morning we set off again up into the mountains along the old mule trails and again we were spoilt with the most fantastic views and lovely riding. It was challenging and at points not for the faint hearted but we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. As we progressed back towards the stables we wished we'd booked for longer!

Thank you caballo blanco for such an amazing experience! You have set the bar very high for our first of what we hope to be many more riding holidays!

"Absolutely perfect - scenery, horses, guide, food & hosts!"

It was the most perfect holiday- the two overnight places we stayed in were both absolutely superb, run by the loveliest people, with excellent food provided there and as packed lunches on our rides, and all of it surrounded by the most spectacular scenery. The rides themselves were just wonderful - you could not ask for more beautiful surroundings, or a nicer, calmer, more expert guide than Fin - he made the whole experience a pleasure and instilled confidence despite us all being novice riders on a mountainside! I loved the horses, loved being able to sponge them down and give them carrots and generally bond with them. On top of that the whole was seamlessly organised and well run - thank you! It was magical.

"Amazing Riding Holiday Experience with Caballo Blanco "

Our first riding holiday and what an amazing experience! My daughter (13yrs) and I were met at the airport by Jane. The transfer flew by as Jane chatted about the area and what to expect. The villa with a pool was perfect and each evening Lulu and her husband cooked the most amazing Spanish food, which was eaten on the terrace with mountain views. Collected each morning by Steve, who entertained us with his local knowledge whilst driving to meet our horses. The riding school is in a truly stunning location high in the mountains and it was clear that Sarah has taken much care to provide for her horses and clients. Once introduced to our horses we were given a chance to ride around the school before trekking out. Each day provided a different experience, our guides went to great lengths to ensure we were safe and happy. A truly magical few days! Thank you, Caballo Blanco

"Little gem in Lanjarón"

Landscape on the way, and the riding variations. It was dry but mountains and valleys are magnificent.

My horse allocation was Johnnie Walker and he was cute! Very good respond on the reins and leg pressure.

And the horse guide Finn. He really cares about horses. Didn't push us but step a little forward to make us happy and thrilled.

Also the stay at Alpujarra guest house for two nights. Emily was such a great and creative vegitarian cook.

The smooth transport. Pick up and drop off at Lanjarón bus stop and luggage transport from Day 2 through 3.

"Absolutely incredible "

We thoroughly enjoyed our short break. Everything was organised for us aside from flights which made it so easy and relaxing from start to finish.

We stayed at Emily’s gorgeous Alpujarra guest house, the accommodation was sweet, clean, welcoming and the food and her cat and dog were delightful!

Our day horse riding was so much better than expected. Our instructor, Claudia was so lovely. The scenes we walked through were so gorgeous, so much more than I could have ever expected. I was just sad when the day ended!

Our evening in the hotel in Lanjarón was pleasant enough, and we found some lovely places to eat and drink in the town too for that evening and breakfast the next morning.

The transfers to and from the airport were also organised for us which again made it so easy for us, and the driver was so friendly and really helpful recommending upon arrival the best places in the town for food and drink.

I imagine we will be back again at some point, hopefully for a little longer.

"Great horse vacation "

I had a wonderful 3 days ride with Caballo Blanco.

All is very well organized from the moment you arrive to the airport until you go back home.

All the people I met were extremely nice and welcoming.

The different accommodations were above my expectations: I had great comfort, great food, great pools and very nice hosts.

The horses were also very safe, brave and lovely. You can ride with the same horse if you want which is good to get better understanding of him/her.

My guide Olive was very cool it was a pleasure to ride with her. Good energy with the other participants.

The landscapes were amazing and it was very relaxing to be in the nature.

I loved that we could spend the all day horse riding and I would recommend it.

"A hugely enjoyable and memorable trip, highly recommended "

"Escape to the mountains"

Arriving on my first night at Emily’s, a beautiful guesthouse up in the mountains. Emily was an incredible host and a great cook!!!

Emily then took me for my first day of riding at the ranch where I was met by my guide Olive. As an experienced rider it was great that is was just me and Olive as we were not waiting around for anyone or held back and I could really enjoy my ride. I rode Pieper for both days, an incredible safe horse.

On my second night I was taken from the ranch to Lally’s, another beautiful guest house in the Valley(with a large swimming pool and air conditioning !!!). Lally was also an excellent host with a beautiful home and around 10 cats which made my stay even better!

On my second day I was transported back to the ranch again(all transfers were on time and everyone was so nice and welcoming) for my second day of riding. I spent my second night back at Lallys before being taken to the airport on Sunday. Lally and her family are also excellent cooks, and I was always made sure I had had enough food.

Overall an incredible holiday with amazing people!

Great horses, lovely people, good food and plenty of wine! The horses, Johnie and Piper, were nice forward rides and foot perfect on the challenging ground. And our guide, Olive riding Dasha, made sure we had a great time and that everyone including the horses was happy in the heat. Couldn’t have hoped for a better weekend

On a good day I'm an absolute liability on a horse. Still, somehow Sarah's horses and my guides Demi and Finn managed to keep me from falling off either a cliff or the horse, all while providing quality entertainment. The trails are very scenic and the accommodation at the guesthouse is absolutely lovely. Overall, I learned a lot, spent time with great people and saw beautiful nature. Whether you're a beginner or a pro, Sarah has a horse and capable guide for everyone, I happily recommend this to anyone looking a small adventure.

"Amazing scenery and riding experience "

Our guide, Demi, was absolutely lovely and was careful to take into account that one of our party was a novice. We loved the horses, the various treks every day, the accommodation in the mountains as well as in the valley. All our hosts made us feel very welcome and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. We would definitely go again. This was a very enjoyable and memorable holiday.

I’m definitely going back as soon as possible.

"What's not to love about this holiday"

Overall this holiday was fabulous, and exceeded my expectations. I have done riding holidays in UK previously and this was my first in Spain. The quality of the horses was excellent, the scenery truly spectacular, the food very good, and people very friendly, especially our guide Daniella, who couldn't have been more helpful. The pace and routes were tailored to our riding ability and was challenging at times, particularly as the terrain is steep in places.

"Don't be out off by the lack of info"

The accommodation, up the mountain from the spa town Lanjarón, was delightful. Ann welcomes you with open arms. I stayed in a charming casita with kitchen and sitting room with wood burner for the cold mountain evenings. In the evenings we all came together for a delicious meal cooked by Ann and a glass of local wine.

The riding was superb - up to 2300 metres where the air gets thin as well as scrambling down the mountainside leading the horses to the valley. The horses were a wonder - very sure-footed along the narrow tracks and readily cantering up the wider ones.

Danielle who led me on three days was superb. She is an excellent rider and very sensitive to what visitors need. Her calm, quiet but very friendly manner immediately puts you at ease.

"Great first horse riding holiday"

Everyone one I met from Stuart for the airport transfer, Ann for the accommodation & food and everyone connected to the stables were friendly, really lovely people.

The horses are well cared for and looked after very well. They are confident, well fed and groomed regularly.

It really helped that I had been honest about my riding ability and weight as that ensured I was matched with a lovely horse who suited me perfectly.

The riding trails are great, a little steep in places and I found leading the horses down a mule track really scary.

I talked to Danniella about my fears and she adapted the next days ride for a trail that suited me. It really wasn’t an issue for them. I could tack and untack, groom and care for Blossom as much as I wanted to, all with encouragement and tips from Danniella.

I was asked everyday how much I wanted to do, both riding and horse care. It did help I was there at a quiet time of year and I appreciate it may not have been so easy to be so flexible at the height of the season with more riders. I added extra rides on my arrival and departure date so rode for around 18 hours over 5 days.

The accommodation was lovely, about 10 minutes drive from the stables. Transfers to and from the 2 locations are arranged for you. Ann is an amazing person who really made me feel welcome and looked after.

The scenery is stunning. It seems the horses love to stop and gaze across the mountains too. I have some lovely photos and wonderful memories.

Everything was so well organized. Sarah was so helpful, as I booked very late, but she made it all possible! The airport transfers were plain sailing the whole way. The accommodation in each place was clean and comfortable, with wonderful hosts. Were were served the best food, buffet breakfast, picnic lunches and 3 course dinners each day. All the horses were so well looked after, and a very easy, safe ride for any level of rider. Our guide, Linda was very good. The scenery was absolutely spectacular, I couldn’t of imagined anything more beautiful!

The accommodation was beautiful and the food was all home cooked and amazing!

The horse riding was brilliant- beautiful scenery and my horse was so beautiful and well behaved! Couldn’t recommend it more- a truely relaxing and spiritual retreat with a difference!

"Solo 4 Day Horse Ride"

I was in Spain for a couple of days and was interested in a multi-day horse trek. I booked Caballo Blanco and am happy to share that my experience was everything that I hoped it would be and more. Highlights included Ann's warm hospitality and delicious food at La Casa del Viento, the amazing quality and well-cared for horses from Sarah's farm, the spectacular views and varied treks that we took, so many opportunities to learn more about and taking care of the horses, Janice and Cris's lovely mountain cottage and the great company of my very knowledgeable guide Eva. Every day was an amazing experience and I couldn't choose a favourite trek. Definitely would recommend!

The horses were very well trained for abrupt terrain and the guides were excellent.

The scenery was magnificent.

I hope to go back sometime in the future!

"Special Memories"

The location, care of the horses, safety for the riders, the guide .... all exceeded my expectations. The overnight in the mountain "cottage" was outstanding and our host Anya was most welcoming and her food outstanding!

"Can’t wait to go back "

I could be myself. Horses are looked after really well. All of her horses have personality. I got to ride nearly everyday, loved every minute. The treks were full of adventure, the horses are strong and brave.

"All I wanted and more"

The location, accommodation, facilities and provided service were excellent at the villa and riding school too.The riding school was nearby and horses looked happy and well cared for. All trainers were friendly, knowledgeable, happy to help and answer my questions. All together created very pleasant and enjoyable experiences/memories which makes me think about returning. Thank you.
