Equestrian Summer Vacations

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Sadly summer is drawing to an end but what a success it has been so far. We launched our brand new 5* riding package in Antequera close to Malaga and that has been a huge hit. Riders are required to fly into Malaga from their chosen airport; we then collect them and take them to their luxury Cortijo accommodation boasting spectacular views of the surrounding valley. Daily rides include dressage or jumping lessons and trail rides plus half board accommodation. The owners of the Corjito are English, there is a Spanish cook who lives on site, the horses are privately owned and very well schooled and are often competed by the girls who also live at the centre. You can stay from 3 nights to 1 week arriving any day of the week all year round! Jessica wrote the following about her recent trip out to Antequera: I had a fantastic time in Antequera it was a perfect mix of relaxation and action packed! The riding was the most scenic I have ever done and I have fallen in love with Andalucían horses! The staff were very welcoming and made sure that I had a brilliant time organising an exciting and diverse itinerary. I have never eaten so well – the food was fantastic and I got to try lots of Spanish tapas. It was an amazing few days and a great way to explore an area of Spain which is so beautiful and unspoilt. I did not want to leave, it was like a big family and I will definitely come again! Thank you! Wiltshire, also one of this year’s most popular destinations saw the launch of their new ‘adult summer camp’. This exclusive and very unique camp offers 4 adults the opportunity to spend 1 week on the famous Rushmore Estate with our host Angie and her horses. Rides include lessons, pub rides and beach rides as well as all meals. We successfully ran 3 camps this year and hope to have next year’s dates very soon. This is what Anja wrote about here recent trip to Wiltshire before booking for New Years Eve: I am now back from the adult camp last week with Angie and I thought I would drop you an email to let you know how it went. I can honestly say that Alexander and I had an absolutely fantastic time and have never felt so spoilt and relaxed on holiday before. Angie is a spectacular host and her horses are just magnificent. The rides we went on were just fabulous and was the best way of de-stressing from a city job! We ate loads, rode loads and made some great friends. We both felt like we’d known Angie all our lives. As such, we were hoping for a return visit over the New Year weekend. Would it be possible – It’s clear to see how eager we are! Regards If you like the sound of the two packages above and are interested in escaping the British winter this year then all you need to do is find a flight to Malaga, give us a call and we’ll do the rest. Alternatively if you would prefer to stay in the UK then call us for next years adult camp dates and keep your eye out for our Christmas and New Year offers including a very special one in Wiltshire…! info@equestrian-escapes.com / tel. 01829 781123
