Enjoy a private horse riding tour in a Nature Park near Barcelona. You and your group will decide whether you rather enjoy a calm and relaxed riding tour along the trails of the Catalonian landscape or trot and gallop in an exiting experience.

This is the perfect present for your anniversary; you and your partner will enjoy an unforgettable morning between nature and horses on your own.

Are you an expert rider? Then enjoy a sensational riding session adapted to your expertise. You will not need to wait for a group of less experienced riders. Tell us your level and we will make you enjoy it to the max. Our instructors are experienced riders that have competed in Catalan, Spanish and European championships in dressage, jumping and cross-country disciplines.

Are you coming for a hen party or a stag party? No other group will join you, so you will be able to slightly modify the schedule of the tour at your leisure.

We recommend the private option for families! All the members of the family will help us  take care of the ponies and learn how to communicate with the horses. Enjoy a morning with us in the ranch!

    I loved every minute of it. Borja, my tour guide, and Monserrat, the horseback riding instructor, were phenomenal. They both bade sure that I was comfrotable on the horse and made sure that I knew all the commands before riding the trail. I also enjoyed learning how to properly brush the horse and put the saddle on the horse. They even checked to see that the saddle was secure before I went on the horse. I recommend this to EVERYONE!!!

  2. Charles Bartlett

    We loved this trip. The logistics were made so easy, the stables were a lot of fun, and the horses were great. The route through the woods and onto the ridge was superb, and the views were terrific. The lunch that awaited us when we returned was delicious, and everyone was incredibly nice. We couldn’t recommend this trip highly enough.

  3. Georgina

    Extremely enjoyable experience!
    I booked the experience for myself and a friend and it was fantastic! The booking was very easy to make and they give you plenty of information before the day. We were greeted by a very friendly and helpful guide when arriving at the meeting point, who then drove us to the nature park. The guide was very talkative and full of interesting information about the day and city. When arriving we were handed over to our equestrian guide and met our ponies! We spent some time in the arena where the guide had us walking, trotting and cantering, depending on our ability. When we were comfortable we then went out on the trail which was beautiful. Afterwards, we tucked into a delicious amount of tapas which nicely ended our tour

  5. J.VanderVen

    Thank you so much, Joan. MaryLou (my riding partner) and I both agree that this was the absolute best part of our vacation, and Alex was truly a delight and a wonderful guide. Being able to leave a raving review for them is important to us.

    Please let Alex know what a pleasure it was to spend time with him (and Akara and Fatigue), and thank you again for the photos.

    Living It tours did a fantastic job for my horseback riding experience. I decided on a private tour since I am an experienced rider who rides at least one time a week with instruction back in the U.S. Being a private tour, Alex my guide, picked me up at my hotel and we were off. Arrived at the stables and after tacking up the horses had a quick turn around the arena to show I did know how to ride and then we were off. It was a beautiful ride with great horses and I loved the opportunities to trot and canter on long stretches of straight aways. After enjoyed a lovely light lunch and then back to Barcelona. I would definitely book again without hesitation on a return trip to Barcelona.

    We went to Barcelona for a weekend. We saw this hirseriding tour in an informational app (Barcelona, IOS/Android)
    But could book only with credit card (which wasn’t an option for that moment)
    I snr a mail and the booking was arranged
    (Quick reply)
    As on Sunday’s there is not much to do and this was an ideal option to do something in the morning.
    We were picked up at our Hotel at 8:15(for a small extra) by guide Alex who brought us to the horse ranch outside barcelona.
    First we got to brush the horse, saddle ir etc and do some practice riding before we went out for the trip which was very nice.
    Also photo were made and send by mail.
    We really enjoyed the trip and would highly recommend it.

    We had fun.
    We were arround 13:00 so we had the whole afternoon to check out the city.

    Thanks Alex.

  8. Greg D

    Thank you Alexander!

    I got the photo, thanks for it. And really nice to meet you, know the horses, discover the region, Wendolyn was encantada 🙂

  9. Wendolyn P

    Lift off from the center in Barcelona, discovering the place and the horses (on a sunny and hot day in mid-november!) with a really nice guide, attentive but not too present, getting to know the park, having a lunch outside with tapas and wine, being droven back where we wanted in Barcelona… Perfect, from the beginning to the end! Okay, the coffee machine could be fixed, that’s the only thing wrong I see 🙂

  10. Karen P

    Thank you very much for sending the pictures 🙂
    I had a lovely day riding with Alex and Indiana.
    Thanks again for picking me up from my hotel. Take care

    On our honeymoon to barcelona I decided to surprise my wife with at horseback riding tour. I decided to do a private tour for just us two and our guide for two hours. It was great. Living It Tours came and picked us up at the front go the hotel and took us right there!. Our tour guide Alex made sure not to spoil the surprise on the ride there. We go to the place(beautiful countryside of Spain) and we started to learn about the horses. This part was really cool because you get to learn not just ride the horse. We geared up after brushing the horses and giving them water and began to move to the horse ring where we learned how to ride. This is not flat land! it’s filled with hills and slopes and rough ground. So you need to know how to position yourself on the horse when climbing or defending. Alex was very patient with us especially because we’ve never ridden a horse before. Snacks were provided along with water during the trip. After we finished our ride through the back country of Spain, we came back to the stables and learned how to take care of the horses after the ride. Washing them and giving them water then letting them play in the ring. We had a lovely lunch after the ride of Spanish omelet , tomatoes, sausage, bread with tomato on it and water. It was nice of Alex to take pictures of us and send them via dropbox! Truly a wonderful experience.

    I booked a private, two hour ride in May 2015 and it was wonderful. Alex picked me up from my accommodation in central Barcelona, we drove to the stables, were I collected my ride – Rim. I then had a lesson to familiarise myself with Rim and then we had a fantastic hack through countryside where we had plenty opportunities to walk, trot and canter. Fantastic views across the whole of Barcelona. I would highly recommend this trip, it ended with a fantastic banquet lunch just for me. Fabulous – thanks Alex & Rim. I paid 200 euros and it was worth every penny, exactly as advertised.

    Großartiges Erlebnis
    Unser Guide hat uns pünktlich abgeholt, war sehr sympathisch und freundlich und hat uns während der Fahrt zum Naturschutzpark Informationen zur Umgebung gegeben. Angekommen auf dem Hof wurden uns die Pferde gezeigt und dann ging es auch schon los. Gemeinsam haben wir die Pferde fertig gemacht, aufgefallen ist mir der liebevolle Umgang mit den Pferden. Die Pferde sind gepflegt und es geht Ihnen gut, sie stehen in Offenstallhaltung in Gruppen.
    Dann gab es eine halbe Stunde Reitunterricht für die Anfänger um die wichtigsten Kommandos zu erklären.
    Der Ausritt ging dann knapp 2,5 h durch den Naturschutzpark und war einfach nur schön, die Pferde waren sehr brav und wir hatten sehr viel Spaß.
    Als gelungenen Abschluss gab es dann noch ein gemeinsames Essen mit der Gruppe als wir wieder zurück waren.
    Auch für absolute Anfänger gut geeignet.
    Ich würde das Event auf jeden Fall wieder buchen, für Pferdefreunde oder die die es werden wollen sehr zu empfehlen!!!

  15. Rasha G

    I liked the trip a lot, it was very good, the people, the horses and the place was all perfect. I really had a great time.

  16. Ramon Bosch

    I must say that your responsiveness and attention to detail have been absolutely faultless until now. Dealing with the team at Living.cat has been a pleasure.

    We decided to book on a private horse riding experience in the natural park near Barcelona. I have ridden horses on holiday all over the word; in the USA, Cuba, DomRep, Scotland, Australia…. However, there was something special about this experience in particular. The day started with my partner and myself being picked up at 9am outside our hotel. We spent the entire 40 minute journey to and from the ranch chatting with the ever so friendly Alex who undoubtedly has a real passion for what he does. Alex looked after us throughout the day and couldn’t have done a better job. What was special about this experience is that the rider gets to bond with the horse before riding off on a trek. It was lovely to get to lead the horses down from the paddock, brush them and help tack them. We spend a little time in the horse ring getting to know how to ride the horses. It was a lot of fun! The horses were to well looked after and we got to shower them down after the trek. Alex also showed us around the ranch so we could meet some of the other horses. The trek itself was through the beautiful forest and tailored to the capabilities of the rider; we are both rusty but fairly experienced riders and got to do lots of trotting and cantering. The day was finished with a lovely lunch and a little red vine.

    Dear Alex,

    Thank you for your email and the link to the pictures. They have turned out very well and are a lovely memory of the great time we had on the ranch and on the ride. We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

    Best wishes,

    Kristina and Helen 🙂

    This was a GREAT activity for our family. We LOVED the horses — they were extraordinarily gentle and responsive. We appreciated the time we were given in the corral to get to know our horses before hitting the trail. This is not a wilderness experience — more suburban, but we were led up a hill at the top of which we had a breathtaking, panoramic view of greater Barcelona. We would do this trip again. It was a great break from museums and cathedrals

    what a wonderful day! I feel so grateful that we got to spend time with these beautiful horses at the Orrius ranch. The nature, the air, the animals. Everything! Alex, our guide, picked us up in Barcelona at 9 am. and we drove 40 min outside of the city into the nature. Alex is the best guide you can wish for, educational, patience and fun! The whole stay was one happy experience 🙂 We started with taking care of the horses and made everything ready. We started to ride insideof the arena and then we went into the Natural Park and up in the mountains. Absolutely beautiful. I have written about it all and i have posted photos on my blog :

    Brilliant day out, guy who met us was absolutely lovely. Stunning countryside, fun riding and nice lunch to complete. Highly recommend.

    Dear Living it,
    First would like to thank you for your kind and lovely services arranged me the Barcelona Horse Riding service with Alex.
    It was a great unusual experience for me to enjoy and to get along with the horses and particular with Rimbow (not sure the spelling is correct, the horse I was riding).
    Besides showing my appreciation on the service, wondering if I could collect the pictures asap from the ride that Alex and Oliole, the teacher rider, has been helped doing the shoots with your camera.
    Kindly let me know with great thanks.
    Best regards
    Amy

    Went horse riding with Elizabeth and it was excellent. She took account of not having ridden for 20 years so a perfect amount of trotting and cantering. Beautiful scenery and wonderful guiding. The logistics of being picked up, dropped off and lunch was also flawless. Chatting with Barbara revealed her great local knowledge and very informative. Highly recommended and when I return I am going to go on their hidden beaches tour and horse ride. Top work LivingIt team.

  25. Horseback 99

    One of the things on my ‘bucket list’ during my backpacking tour of Europe was to go to horse riding in Spain. And the tour through ‘Living it’ was perfect and great value. Got the whole experience of saddling up, riding, washing down the horse and feeding it. It was so much fun and a great change from seeing all the typical touristy things that do get repetitive at times. Friendly staff, definitely recommend it 🙂

    As a study abroad student for a semester here in Barcelona, it was a wonderful opportunity to get outside of the city of Barcelona and see a different side of life here. The people involved were very friendly and shared a wealth of information about their own experiences as Catalan natives. I was picked up promptly by Barbara and when I got to the stables, Alex gave a short tour of the facilities. There were two other people also riding along with myself and two guides. It was nice to be able to help in getting the horse [Limbo] ready. We spent a short time in the ring to prepare for the trails. The views of Barcelona are beautiful, but are even better on horseback! The horse that I rode could definitely be ridden by a beginner; All of the horses appeared to be very friendly and easy to ride. The light lunch was definitely influenced by Catalan culture and was very tasty. I even got to walk Limbo to the pasture with Alex’s horse. Pictures were taken throughout the morning/afternoon and they were emailed to me a few days later. Not having to worry about taking pictures is definitely a plus! I would recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in horses or would like to venture outside of the busy city of Barcelona. I had the best time and would go every weekend if I could… 🙂
