Highlight of my holiday in Gran Canaria
Nov 2021
The Horse Riding Experience with El Salobre was definately a highlight of my holiday in Gran Canaria.

The views were absolutely stunning. This alone could be a reason to take this excurtion. And when it says "2 hours", it is actually 2 hours on a horse, all the necessary preparations were outside of this time.

2 guides that we had, Jana and Dino where very friendly and proffesional, they explained everything very well and really made me feel safe, considering it was my very first time riding a horse.

Speaking of which, the horse that was assigned to me, Carpaccio, was a really good boy :) calm, friendly and very easy to control.

I really couldn't recommend Horse Riding Experience with El Sablero enough, if you ever visit Gran Canaria do not hesitate to check this amazing exeprience out. 100% satisfied.

Soul restoring :-)
Nov 2021
Yet again a super time out in the saddle, Horses are well looked after and well schooled so responsive to aids. Gallops were fun and the views as always are lovely.
The staff are multi lingual really helpful and knowledgeable. Starting with a basic instruction session on safety and how to hold the reins for those who have not ridden before.
This experience is suitable for complete novice to experienced and you are guaranteed to have fun.

What should be noted is that there are several welfare cases that have been taken in as rescues, and though these horses and ponies are in the stables they are not there as working animals but rescue cases that have been taken from a very bad situation and are being looked after and rehabilitated. Some of the horses are in poor condition but with the love and care of Jose and his staff they will be rehabilitated and become happy healthy horses again. I take my hat off to these guys who are willing to not only run a working trekking yard but take on and rehabilitate sick animals as well.
All in all a great place to have a fun few hours out in the saddle. :-)

Nice Riding to The Hill
Great view and well trained horses - friendly Vinosa - can be met during the riding. Remember to bring a jacket with you, if you are going to ride in the afternoon. It’s cold on the mountain after sunset.

Nice excursion in the canary landscape
Went on the 2 hour trip with my 10 year old daughter who loves horse. It was a very pleasant experience a nice excursion in the Canaria landscape. The guide was very pleasant and helpful. The tour was for both rides and inexperience but it was solved nicely with a trotting and gallop foe the experience riders. The horses were calm but not to lazy. Would absolutely recommend it.

Good but long

The ride was very good although I find 2 hours a bit boring, the workers were good and Laura was very careful and attentive.

Booked as a surprise for my Wife and Daughter - they loved it!
I booked a one hour evening session for my Wife and Daughter. They really enjoyed it, and said the mountain scenery was amazing, well behaved horses, and staff were friendly, and professional. Arranged pick up and drop off with them, driver was punctual and polite They will definitely do again on next visit to Gran Canaria.

Great first horse riding experience
Dec 2020 • Family
I went horse riding here with my 9 year old son and the instructors were fantastic. My son was very nervous and didn’t want to do it at the last minute but the instructors were very patient and eventually persuaded him to get on with the instructor’s horse attached by a rope. A few minutes later my son relaxed and loved it. We only booked a 1 hour trek since I wasn’t sure how it would go but my son had a wonderful time and we could have rode for longer (although it was good length for a kid on the first time ). We went on Christmas Eve and they put a reindeer decoration on the horse for my son. The whole experience was great and if our holiday was longer we would have booked another ride. We just booked by ringing up that morning and drove ourselves there but they can pick you up /drop you off if needed.

Amazing
Dec 2020 • Couples
What can I say, the Finnish lady who took us was such a great chat and the horses were amazing. We booked two hours from 4-6 and boy they did not miss. What great value for money, can’t fault them. The horse was a bit lazy but that is no ones fault, they gave me a whip and taught me how to get titanic moving and it worked out fine he has a sweet soul. My wife sat on Cumbre and had no issues. Don’t expect beach ride this is mountain terrain with rocks but the riding experience and confidence you get in the end is amazing. Not to mention the views! This activity alone has made us make plans to come back next December already! And if you love the gram the shots you get while in the horses ain’t bad too! I hope tourism picks up and Jose and the whole team have a full stable of 30 horses again!

To top it all off a lot of them are rescued and retrained horses Thankyou for making our honeymoon!

We will be back!

INCREDIBLE PLACE!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Jul 2019 • Couples
My boyfriend and I decided to go for a trek with El salobre while on holiday as I saw an advert online. My boyfriend had never been on a horse before while I have been riding for over 18 years.

The yard itself is impeccable and the horses are some of the best looked after at a riding school I have ever seen. Not even any dust on their coats and all well fed, sparkling eyes and good sound feet.

My boyfriend was given carpaccio to ride, a lovely cob type who was so laid back and really looked after him for the whole trek. I was given trueno a stunning athletic boy who was incredible to ride and gallop! I have ridden horses all over the world and worked at a trekking centre myself and I have to say, trueno was a brilliant experience I will never forget! From my impressions all of the horses on our trek were completely bomb proof and very well mannered.

The trek is an excellent way to relax and see the gorgeous scenery of maspalomas. When the more experienced riders were able to break off from the ride and go for a gallop it was an incredible adrenaline rush! The horses knew exactly where to go and were also having a brilliant time.

The whole experience was incredible and myself and my partner still tell everyone how brilliant our trek at El Salobre was. We are planning to come back to Gran Canaria as soon as this quarantine is over and cannot wait to come back to El salobre! 💕
