Horse Riding

Tarifa Beach Houses work with a stables on the beach that has been functioning for over 20 years, founded by a Swiss – Scottish vet. Her team of workers are multilingual with huge amounts of experience and expertise in the horse world.
Tarifa has a strong horse culture and every year there is a 500 man horse parade known as the ‘cabalgata’ from Santuario de la Luz church to Tarifa town which marks the start of the Feria in Tarifa.
Enjoy horse or pony riding on the 14km stretch of white sandy beaches, in the Natural Cork Forest or in the mountains close by.
Tarifa has an ideal climate for riding all year round. The frequent winds between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic make it cool enough to enjoy riding even during hot sunny periods. In winter the temperature seldom drops below 15º.
Various trips are available from short led pony rides down the beach, daily hacks to weekly programmes with picnics etc. They even offer Natural Horsemanship Instruction and Horse Assisted Development.
