Bitless and barefoot riding!
Yes, you read right, bitless and barefoot riding holidays in Spain. “Cortijo Los Lobos is an exclusive holiday retreat with heated pool and horse riding set in the beautiful olive groves and pine clad national park of Andalucia, Southern Spain.”
Weekend, midweek or full week riding holidays can be arranged, either self-catering or full board. The holidays are tailored around the guests…around their riding ability and plans. Non riders, beginners and children are welcome and offers of picnic rides and restaurant hacks are available. A wonderful mixture of terrain and views awaits you, with open fields, cool shady pine forests, olive groves and streams to make for memorable rides.
Many of the horses at Cortijo Los Lobos are rescues and all are ridden in bitless bridles and without shoes on their feet. It came about when one horse became terrified of farriers after a bad incident. The only way they could continue to ride their lovely horse was to find a different way that would be more comfortable for the horse and safer for them. After removing the shoes and learning to ride with a loose contact using a halter bridle, there was no stopping them, and all their horses are now kept in a natural environment and ridden the same way.
