Sulayr Short Break

The Sulayr Short Break offers three full day rides.

The first day in the Poqueira Valley. The second day we head east to the village of Trevelez, where we stay the night.

On the third day we climb high into the mountains and return to the home base by a different route.


Day 1

Those of you who have arranged to be collected from Malaga airport will be pickup at prearranged time and driven to the village of Bubion; just over a two hour drive.

While in Bubion you will be staying in the comfortable Casa La Sevillana. Your host (Dallas Love) will meet you at 8.30pm and take you for dinner in one of the local restaurants, within easy walking distance of your accommodation.


Day 2

After breakfast you will be driven the 5 kilometres up to the stables, where you will meet the horses. The ride will vary slightly depending on the weather and the time of year.

We will ride an average of 6 hours following the acequias (ancient Moorish irrigation channels), old bridle paths and tracks through the valley Poqueira to the base of the Mulhacen , at 3,486 meters the highest mountain on the Spanish mainland.

A full picnic lunch en-route. Return to Bubion for your second night.

Day 3

Today we ride to the whitewashed village of Trevelez, the highest village in Spain and famous for its air cured hams.

During the morning the old bridle paths wind their way through chestnut woods, orchards and terraces above the villages of La Taha.

After a picnic lunch we join the main forestry track through the pine woods, here there are opportunities for some nice canters.

The final descent into the village is on a narrow path and it is necessary to lead the horses for 15 minutes.

Trevelez still has cattle and sheep, the cattlemen and their horses heading out to the hills is a common sight in the early morning and late evening.

Overnight in hotel La Fragua, dinner at local restaurant. 5 and 6 hours riding, approximately 28 kilometres.
