Why ride at H.O.R.S.E.?

The Hipica Ondara Riding School Equestrian (H.O.R.S.E) was founded by David and Jodie. The most important goal of H.O.R.S.E. is the health and wellbeing of our mostly rescued horses. The facility is located in the picturesque valleys of Ondara. Here we have lots of  possibilities for fun filled hacks and carriage drives.
Our yard include 2 sand areanas, cross country course and everything necessary to ensure happy horses. With the owner living on side and an incredibly network of veterinarians and farriers the horses are safe and cared for day and night.

We offer horse riding and lessons for all levels of rider as well as a wide range of horsey activities for children OVER 5YRS and adults of any age. Whether you´re looking for a new hobby or wanting to learn a new skill, we have horses to suit all.
