There is no better way to discover the island then on horseback riding in Gran Canaria. Take this trip and your new 4-legged friend will take you down the local valleys through the hidden trails. El Salobre Horse Riding School in Gran Canaria is the best option for a horse riding tour on the island. You will experience the true pleasure and an unforgettable experience of horseback riding in Maspalomas.



The equestrian center has been running for more than 20 years. Jose’s professional team of riders will aid you during your riding adventure in Spain. The riding center is located in the “El Salobre” area close to the Salobre Golf resort. The extensive facilities of this riding school also include an exterior coffee area in which you can have a snack or a coffee.

Once at the riding center, the team will provide you with the necessary equipment and helmet. Later on, the horses will be taken out of the stables and led to the arena to get you on your saddle. Here you’ll begin the journey up the mountains. During the trek, you’ll make some stops to take some photos of the panorama. On one side, you’ll have the magnificent views of the Maspalomas Dunes natural reserve, the Atlantic ocean and on the other side, you’ll have the ravines and mountains of Gran Canaria.

The horseback riding tour is suitable for all levels. Whether you want a quiet ride for beginners to take some selfies or open-spaced gallops for the more high-level riders, the guides will be there for you. After you get back at the horse camp, for an additional fee, you can have a photographic record of the day.

My 8 year-old daughter and I participated in an one hour ride this summer. Neither of us had any experience with riding a horse before. We were both nervous and excited. My daughter got to ride Cumbre and I Casino. We enjoyed the experience very much. My daughter fell in love with Cumbre and with riding horses. We felt welcome immediately upon our arrival. The guidance was excellent. The route of the tour was beautiful with varying terrain. Both my daughter and I learned very much and recommend taking a ride with this company. My daughter hopes to see and ride Cumbre again.
