Full description

Unleash your inner cowboy on a guided horseback ride into the Tabernas Desert. Stop along the route to learn about the natural environment, nature, geology, history, and cinema. On arrival at the ranch, be welcomed by the guide who will provide you with your equipment and introduce you to your horse. Once ready you will receive a short training session to get to grips with animal-friendly horse riding. Then, everyone will set off on a tour tailored to the participants' level, supervised by an instructor. Follow the "Desierto de Ley" route for an introduction to the desert. Cross an open area of desert, with views of the mythical "Llano del Búho" and "La Tortuga". Ride through these unique landscapes and admire their geological formations.

See where hundreds of film and TV productions have been filmed, such as Indiana Jones, Game of Thrones, Exodus, The Sisters Brothers, or The Crown among many others. Later, return to the ranch, where you will say goodbye to your horse.

Teo is a super friendly and pleasant guide! We were lucky and there were only two of us. He took a lot of time for us and told many exciting stories. The horses are very well behaved. I had no experience in dealing with horses and yet everything worked out wonderfully. We really enjoyed the trip and would recommend it anytime.

The day before we were given very clear and detailed directions to reach the location. We appreciated the 'mini course' we were given before the walk started as 3 of us were beginners. The horses are very good and well kept. Our guide Teo is knowledgeable, welcoming and very pleasant. The walk is very beautiful and doing it on horseback gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself completely in nature and in the scenery of many famous films.

The route has been very pleasant as well as the guide, they have been explaining us a lot of information about the area and related characteristic things. It has been a lot of fun, and they were very attentive that we went well (we were beginners and did not know how to ride) and that we took good memories. Despite being July, the breeze from Tabernas kept us warm. A more than recommended experience, I would repeat without hesitation. The mares were very good and calm.
