"Great horses, food, drink, accommodation and company, if you want a fun chilled week in good company go and stay with Giles and Miranda - everything else a bonus! Will be back for more!"
The past 10 days on your ranch have been a holiday Nicole, Patrick and myself, we will not easily forget. First of all because it was a long time ago, since we enjoyed a holiday abroad and - more importantly - the combination of relaxation, the quiet environment, adventure and the proximity of horses was .......

I know that Jill as a seven times serial offender (along with her sisters Rose and Martha) of trips to your place will not mind if I write on behalf of both us to thank you for our most recent visit. In coming to your ranch Jill has ....... Read more on the rider's comments page
A gorgeous PRE mare of the old baroque stamp
She has a gorgeous temperament and will turn heads
wherever she goes. She is tall but well proportioned
with the typical square look and extremely comfortable.
You will be sooo proud to ride her and if you respect
her lightness, she will take you to the end of the world
and back !
Amadeo is a mature gelding with a "busy" brain and a playful temperament, originally bred by the Spanish army.
He is a baroque type with classical beauty and is enthusiastic in his work. He collects his gaits with great ease and
feels like a rocking horse when ridden with lightness and sensitivity.
Rociera is a stunningly beautiful, tall and elegant pedigree PRE mare. She came to us as a young undernourished and inexperienced mare and has turned
into a gorgeous mature mare with an affectionate personality who absolutely adores people and is happy to have a go at any task given to her...
Our beautiful chestnut gelding named after the 'wind of the desert' ! He is a gorgeous mature red head who knows his job
better than anyone. Sirocco is a Spanish "3 sangres" or Anglo x Hispano-Arab, combining the best attributes of these breeds -
he is a great ride and a real gentleman !
Gitana is a great Spanish mare of solid build who is very willing to work. She stands at 16hh and is a gorgeous darker grey. She has both the looks
and temperament of a typical Spanish horse, cuddly but with some spunk as well, a real showy mare !
One thing : she LOVES to eat, so hide your apple !!
A real boy with bags of character and all the charm of a beautiful proud Spanish horse. He grew up in the Malaga mountains and
has amazingly tough feet, hard legs and is extremely surefooted. He is fast, very forward going and never gives up.
Tío Pepe needs an experienced, gentle and sensitive rider. You will be proud to ride him !
A gorgeous bright bay half pedigree PRE mare, who loves to flirt with the boys. She is very comfortable ride,
forward going but very steady and super safe ! Nothing much will worry her and she has the best temperament ever !
Savannah is a quality stunning HispanoArab mare. She is our princess and super sensitive. She has gone through too
many hands in her younger life, but she has settled in well with us. Savannah is a keen learner and with patience she is willing to tackle anything.
She is our pride and joy and does best with a relaxed and sensitive quiet rider.
Morante is a Spanish sports horse gelding (CDE). He is a quality horse with beautiful gaits and has a great talent for dressage, although he very much enjoys riding out into the countryside.
He is very forward going and feels like the king of the herd :-)
Bandolero is our smallest but of course he has
a much bigger personality ;-). When we first got him,
his feet needed some urgent attention as his previous owner
used to do the shoeing himself. Bandolero is suitable for
lighter and smaller riders. He has quite a few seasons under
his belt now and loves his work and the people who ride
him. He is very brave and is one of the lads in the paddock;-)... he will always put a smile on your face !
Etala is a purebred PRE mare, who came to us as her elderly owner could no longer take care of her and was not in a position to start her.
We have backed and trained her and she is now pretty confident out on the rides, good in traffic and pretty much anything else. She is super comfortable to ride and with a lovely youthful playfulness running through her ;-) !
