With more than 30 years knowledge of this region Dallas has chosen a selection of trails offering an amazing diversity of terrains, views and flora.

TThe rides follow ancient bridle paths and drovers routes, dating back to the Moorish occupation and before. Many of these paths have been in use for a thousand years or more, as have the terraces and irrigation channels they transverse.

Through parts of the mountains there are more recent dirt tracks providing opportunities for canters and gallops, as do some of the river beds on the spring and autumn rides.

The paths in many places are built into rock and on some of the steeper descents it is necessary to lead your horse. Likewise it is necessary to lead the horses through the narrow village streets.

Here it is possible to forget the pressure of daily life and to ride all day meeting only the occasional shepherd or farmer.
