Horse lovers can go for a leisurely trot, comfortable canter or adventurous gallop at the riding school of the Real Club de Golf in Bandama in Santa Brígida, Las Palmas. In addition to the golf club, there are stables here where holidaymakers can sign up for a lesson.

In the south of the island, you can also book riding lessons and trekking tours at Rancho Park, near Playa del Inglés (on the way to Palmitos Park). Here, you will also find a children’s park and a family-friendly restaurant.

And in Maspalomas, the Canyon Horse Farm offers guided tours through trails and beautiful landscapes. Riders of all levels can enjoy this outing in the sunshine.

Sioux City, a theme park that re-creates the Wild West, has plenty of horses that are part of the exciting show. This great adventure park in Maspalomas has teamed up with the company Animal Encounters to give you double the enjoyment; sit back and watch the show then saddle up and ride out on a guided tour. 

For more information about horse riding clubs and lessons, ask at the reception of your hotel.
