Well the bad weather was a blip now passed but all the options you mention are possible;

Horse riding: contact Dallas in Bubion: spain-horse-riding.com/sierra-trails-contact… . Theres an interesting museum to be visited in Bubion too.

Ham should be taken at source ie Trevelez. There are various guided jamonero visits offered that are easy to find once there but I recommend a racion of Jamon and a bottle of Contraviesa tinto (or Rioja if you want to be boring) at Hotel Pepe Alvarez in the lowest village square.

A drive over the sierra de La Contraviesa passing Haza De Lino and Aiming At Murtas will take you past many bodegas that invite you to enter, taste, or purchase. "Cuatro vientos" near murtas is the most commercial but easiest to visit. Try to find Barranco Oscoro for high quality wines and a lovely vineyard. http://maps.google.es/maps?gl=es&daddr=Cortijo+Barranco+Oscuro,+18440,+Granada&panel=1&f=d&fb=1&dirflg=d&geocode=0,36.880581,-3.185691&cid=0,0,1102000573349559096&hq=barranco+oscuro&hnear=0xd71c5fb7cb2ef8b:0xf0ba6fbb21c147fd,Trev%C3%A9lez,+Granada

Definitely a good idea to get away from Orgiva in order to see the best of the area and arranging a guided walk or village visit with walkalpujarra.com/guided-walking-holidays/da… is recommended.
