Rancho Acebuchal 
Ethical Equestrian Centre 


We are more than just a riding holiday!

A holiday at Rancho Acebuchal, an Ethical Equestrian Centre in beautiful Andalusia is a very unique experience. From the moment you arrive you will notice the difference to many other equestrian centres. It is a very special ranch which exudes peace and quiet and has happy, relaxed horses. We have 3 separate large open paddocks where horses are kept naturally in a herd environment with their friends, are barefoot and are trained and ridden using sympathetic methods and tack. Our site totals 8.5 hectares which gives a real feeling of space for everyone.
We offer holidays to improve your skills in Horsemanship, Dressage and Pilates with experienced instructors in small groups of no more than 6 to allow for individual attention at all times. Holidays can be from 3 nights onwards staying in a recently refurbished rustic style cottage situated in the heart of the ranch. From here you can watch the horses fed and cared for whilst relaxing on your own terrace with a meal or drink.
We have well trained, safe, stunning Pure Andalusian horses, a newly refurbished Pilates studio, a bar and cafeteria onsite, indoor and outdoor arenas. Our setting is picturesque with views to the mountains and the Mediterranean sea.
Trekking will take you out into the countryside and into the mountains once you feel secure and confident with your horse. There is no obligation to ride out and many people prefer to ride in the arena only, we are only interested in your own safety and confidence, there is no set agenda.

Please browse our website and also check us out on social media for more information. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the Ranch!
