Horse Riding



Horse riding is almost an integral part of life in Menorca. The distinctive Black Menorcan horse are held in high regard and are thus broken in carefully. These animals frequently perform at fetes and fiestas both large and small. Alternatively you can take in one of the many equestrian shows held throughout the island during the summer months.

If you favour a more hands on approach you can enjoy a riding holiday on the Island. Guided excursions and rides through the Tramontana region's countryside and beaches are also available. There are horses and routes to suit allcomers from complete beginners to experienced riders. There are many riding centers in Menorca and we believe Can Pouny Riding Centre near Mahon and the Minorcan farm of Santa Rita, between Mercadal and Ferreries offer full ranges of riding experiences.
