Program

Body awareness riding entails using as little effort as possible in influencing the horse to perform as much as possible. It is inspired by the Classical School - School of Lègéreté. The goal is a horse in natural balance, self-carrying, relaxed, moving through the whole body, listening and waiting for the rider´s gentle signals and enabling the horse´s natural curiosity to succeed.

Before you can require great things from your horse, you need to find your own balance. You'll practice breathing, relaxation, presence, leadership, concentration, body control, focus, and how to give clear signals in order to get a responsive horse. All tuition is tailor-made to suit each individual rider´s level and preferences, starting with the basics.

If you want, you can start with "working in hand" riding lesson - where the teacher helps the rider to ride the horse from the ground to start with, so that the rider can learn the feeling of the movements and how to give proper aids. Then step by step, the rider starts to take over.

There will be three and a half hours of working with the horses every day, minimum 1 hour riding. You'll work with communication, leadership and liberty training. You'll also do dressage, easy jumps, and ride in the mountains if you want to.

The teacher

The teacher is always there to find the highest possible level for the horse and rider and assist when required. Mia's training will make a change in the way you look at horses, riding, communication and yourself. You will get experiences that you will carry with you the rest of your life and they will be useful even when communicating with humans.

Location

Malaga

Malaga, the Spanish city which adjoins Costa del Sol, is a popular tourist destination and for good reason. For several years, this beautiful city has been overshadowed by its other Andalucian cities such as Granada, Cordoba, and Seville. However, Malaga is now receiving a lot more attention as a tourist destination. In fact, its art is being compared to that of Madrid and its food to that of none other than Barcelona.

The world famous artist, Picasso was from Malaga and has been quoted about his own city – “to be a Cubist you have to have been born in Málaga”. Some of the key attractions in the city are of course the Alcazaba and the Renaissance Cathedral. There is also a cathedral in the heart of the recently restored historic city center which also attracts a great deal of visitors.

The Picasso Museum is yet another hot spot for art lovers. In terms of beaches, one of the most popular beaches in the city is the La Malagueta beach. For one of the best views make sure to visit the 11th-century Gibralfaro castle. Paying a visit to the CAC Malaga Contemporary Art Center is also definitely worthwhile. If you like to party, then you will be pleased to know that Malaga parties late into the night.

There are several bars along the beach of LaMalagueta and Pedregalejo while the old town is full of clubs and live music bars where you are sure to have a great night. Some of the other hotspots include Calle Granada, Plaza de la Merced and Calle de las Beatas in the Old Town. For a spot of relaxation head down to the Paseo del Parque promenade, which is dotted with fountains, and the Puerta Oscura Gardens that offers magnificent vistas.

Distances from Malaga

  • Cordoba, 158 kilometers
  • Gibraltar, 138 kilometers
  • Ronda, 99 kilometers
  • Pileta Caves, 118 kilometers

Ronda

Despite being a growing town, Ronda retains much of its historic charm, particularly its old town. It is famous worldwide for its dramatic escarpments and views, and for the deep El Tajo gorge that carries the rio Guadalevín through its center.

Visitors make a beeline for the 18th century Puente Nuevo 'new' bridge, which straddles the 100 meters chasm below, before taking in the views from the Alameda out over the Serranía de Ronda mountains.

A few kilometers from Ronda, just outside the white village of Benaojan lies one of the most spectacular cave systems in Spain, and in the mouth of one, several galleries of cave paintings that are as old as 30,000 years, and were created by Paleolithic people of Ronda before the last great ice age. Best of all, the caves are open to the public with a local tour guide to explain the significance of the artwork.

Gibraltar

Gibraltar, colloquially known as The Rock, (or simply 'Gib'), is an overseas territory of the United Kingdom sitting at the entrance to the Mediterranean Sea. It is bordered by Spain to the north and the people of Gibraltar are ferociously loyal British citizens despite being bilingual in English and Spanish.

Gibraltar is a unique place for the curious traveler. Take time to explore the caves and tunnels especially those not meant for tourists! The inside of the rock is an absolute labyrinth with secret internal roads and tunnels four times longer than those on the surface. Military presence and security in this otherwise deserted area are strong but almost invisible.
