I had riding lessons in my late teens, a long time ago now, and decided to start again now I’m in my 40’s a little older. I take lessons at Corvera Club Hipica right near the golf course (Corvera Golf). It’s a brand new riding school, they’re just getting everything set up. You can see in the video that they were working on the lighting system which was spooking the horse a little. At least that’s my excuse for riding so badly.

After the first lesson I felt like I’d forgotten more than I’d ever learnt. My bum, legs and back ached. My head was pounding from simultaneously translating the Spanish instructor into English and then into action – quite a delay. In the video this is my 3rd lesson, with instructor Gonzalo. He’s patient, funny and specific – great qualities for a teacher. The school has 2 rings, excellent jumping facilities and pupillage for horses. Lessons cost 35€ or you can buy a bono and get a discount.

For more information contact Gonzalo on +34 637 978 257 or +34 637 254 465 and tell him Deborah sent you.
