My girlfriend and I just returned from four days in Montefrio, two of which we spent at Sierra Pelada. Prior to our arrival, Liz arranged an itinerary for the two days taking in a huge amount of the surrounding area, including the top of a mountain (dress warmly for Decemeber trips!) and the nearby town of Illora. The views of... More

On arrival, Liz made us very welcome. She checked out our abilities, none and not a lot, then tailored our ride to suit. It is obvious that Liz just loves what she does and looks after all her animals extremely well. My friend and I had a wonderful ride through the olive groves, the weather was just right and the...

Brilliant few days. Authentic welcome, beautiful scenery, fit horses and a great atmosphere. myself and my girlfriend spent two days and nights at Sierra Palada riding and eating and talking. Liz welcomed us on the first day and asked us our preferences and what we wanted. She tailored the trip around us and we had a great time. Would love... More

We were looking for a stable with natural horsemanship as the first ever ride for our 4 year old granddaughter. We wanted somewhere that treated their horses with kindness and care where she would experience a horse ride as near to nature as possible. We were recommended to go to a stable near Granada between Illora and Montefrio, after a... More

My husband and I were visiting family in Granada and I really wanted to take a trail ride. I am the only rider of the group, but Liz was fantastic at setting up an enjoyable time for all of us (4 total). We took the bus from Granada to Montefrio and Liz picked us up in the city and drove... More

My boyfriend and I went on a trek this morning to the most incredible look-out over Andalucia and can't recommend Sierra Pelada enough. We have ridden a little bit before and this was the most enjoyable experience we've had on horse-back. We rode Luna and Spartan, both were in impeccable condition and made us feel very comfortable and confident. They... More

We felt extremely safe with her and her staff. The horses are lovely. We sat and ate in a lobely shaded place overlooking miles and miles of... More

Our early morning trek into the hills around the stables was one of the highlights of our recent holiday in Andalucía. Making the arrangements with Liz was straightforward, and she managed to accommodate myself (who hadn't ridden for 20 years), my friend (also a little out of practice) and my 8 year old daughter, who only started riding this year....

We went as every summer with the kids. Among us there were, beginners, kids, a newbie and me. The horses are very calm. This time Liz changed the path and we went up the mountains having wonderful scenes and marvelous views. You don't need to know anything about riding and if you do, it is even better! When you are...
