"As I sit in our wonderful apartment, looking out the window into the gorgeous Spanish sunshine watching Giles’ and Miranda’s handsome stallion, I remember when my boss’ parents won this superb first prize of a riding holiday to Spain, and then gave it to me as I “needed a break”, HA HA !!! Excitedly I phoned my best friend Sarah (Pearson), to inform her, she was coming with me. ☺ Well the expectations I had then were nothing compared to the reality of it all.The beautifully light, responsive, surefooted horses, who are full of character and intelligence will set your heart on fire – and the welcome and care given by our lovely hosts Giles & Miranda were second to none.The views you see whilst seated on these magnificent animals can not be explained.You have to see it to believe it!!My stress levels melted away further with each ride, and what a perfect way to see the scenery, looking through two beautiful, trusted Spanish ears (the horse’s that is) ! HE HE HE.My only complaint is that I have to leave…. So, to sum it all up, first class horses, first class rides and activities, and Giles & Miranda made our stay fun and warm and made us feel like we were part of the family and what a wonderful family they have here ! Just wait until you meet LINKY !!!! ha ha ha. Linky cooling down If you want a riding holiday that combines relaxation, with breath taking moments and so much more, you simply have to come. Absolutely loved it 100%, can’t wait to come back, reminds you of every reason you ever fell in love with horses…..
Thank you, love Sarah Finch xxx P.S. Pepsi and Nieves are in my suitcase." ☺
