Activities 2019

Horse riding with the family, starting from 2 years old, and final BBQ | 16/03/19

For whom Adults and children from 2 years old, seniors. Accessible to strollers.
Place Cercedilla
Date Saturday March 16 

For children
Very young children will be accompanied by an adult (their father or mother) who will take the horse from the reins, walking ahead. They can try first in the enclosed area on th ranch, in total security and tranquility, and, when they have already gained confidence, continue through the field, a straight and flat line in between the trees, without any complications, falls, or detours. It is a real pleasure to observe how little ones lose their fear and ride without worries! Also, they can visit the stables and even give the horses a carrot!

More details
We will go to a beautiful horse ranch, hidden in the middle of the Guadarrama National Park, in the area of Cercedilla, managed by a very friendly family. A day in which the youngest can ride a real horse while the older children, and adults, will ride in nature according to their level. Perfect for those who do it for the first time and for the most advanced riders! After we’re finished we will have a great barbecue, with plenty of side dishes and even grilled veggies! The area is very wild and beautiful, with magnificent views. It is an excellent way to get to know the National Park from a totally different angle, outside the radar of tourism, surrounded by good local taste.

It includes

  • Horse riding routes for children, adults and children (different duration according to level and age)
  • Mid-morning snack
  • BBQ meal with drinks, dessert and coffee
  • Sporty People leader
