  • Description


    We moved here from the UK 12 years ago and are living our dream of rescuing and rehabilitating horses. We also run courses to educate people about Positive Reinforcement training.

    Currently we have 6 rescue horses, 1 rescue pony and 1 mule yearling living in 18 acres of olive and almond grove. We also have 3 rescue dogs.

    My family (My husband and 2 children aged 9 and 15) are building a new house where we live with our horses. Whilst building is in progress, we are living in a static caravan on the land.

    We run a variety of equine courses throughout the year, with guests attending from all over the world. We have a beautiful casa in the nearby village where guests stay during courses.

    We are located in a small rural Andalucian village so plenty of chances to practice Spanish. We are surrounded by Olive and Almond groves.

    We are close to Granada and Malaga. Rhonda and Seville are a couple of hours away by bus.

    Our nearest town is Alhama de Granada, which has a rich history and overlooks a magnificent gorge. It is also home to some wonderful hot springs, which can be enjoyed all year round.

    It has an amazing view of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the ski village is roughly a 1hr 20m drive from us!

    There are many beautiful hikes close-by, including the impressive Cacin Gorge walk. We also have 2 lakes within 15 minutes of the village, the most notable being the stunning Los Bermejales Reservoir.

    For those people interested in horses we offer the opportunity to learn about Positive Reinforcement Training and Rehabilitation of rescue horses. Please note our horses are not ridden at this time. Most of the training is done as groundwork. ***Please note the majority of help required is at "The Casa"***

    We also run Tai Chi and Yoga courses from time to time and you would be able to take part for some of the time.

    There is always lots of chat and learning going on at "The Casa" our guests come from all over the world so there is an interesting mix of people to get to know.
