We have some 100 horses and ponies, with many of our horses fully trained Andalusians.  Some of these you can ride (if you are experienced) so you can experience the wonder of riding a horse trained in the Spanish school of riding.  In fact, at Los Robles we are well known for our Andalusian horses and we perform most of the shows and exhibitions of Spanish school riding along the northern Costa Blanca.  So – experienced or not I think you will be stunned by the quality of our horses!

Of course, we also have horses that are ideal for you if you have not ridden before and we have dozens of ponies if you have children who want to ride.  For younger children and those who have not ridden before we have special saddles that are more secure than normal.

How would you like to go horse riding on Gandia beach?

Can you think of anything more exciting and glorious than galloping down one of the finest beaches in Spain – or providing a friend or relative with the chance to so!  Just imagine it…

At Los Robles we are surrounded by beautiful countryside, criss-crossed with tracks that are perfect for horse riding and we go for hacks almost every day.  Frequently, we also go horse riding on Gandia beach (except in July and August).  Gandia Beach is only a few minutes ride from our stables at Gandia and allows us to exercise our horses in the way that they love most – by galloping along a superb beach.

Of course, we adapt our riding and the horses that we provide to the level of riding of our clients.  If you are not experienced then we have horses that are easy to ride and, if galloping across the beach is not for you, we are equally happy to walk the horses so that you can soak up the wonderful atmosphere and sights.

Certainly, we have not met anyone who has not thrilled to going horse riding on Gandia beach.  Indeed, we have clients who come back time and again because they have enjoyed it so much.

Needless to say, we also take our ponies on Gandia beach.  They are ideal for children, so if your son or daughter loves riding then we will be able to provide him or her with the perfect pony.  Should they need riding classes before they go horse riding on Gandia beach then this is no problem.  We have several picaderos (including one that is covered) and superb, professional riding instructors, who have years of experience in training people to ride.

At Los Robles, we have a huge selection of horses and ponies (around 100!) – so finding the perfect horse or pony is certainly rarely a problem!

So – if you would like to go horse riding on Gandia beach then do just contact us.  We are here and ready to provide you with a wonderful experience and one that you are unlikely to ever forget!

A CLASSIC ANDALUSIAN- MAGNIFICENT!

A CLASSIC ANDALUSIAN – MAGNIFICENT!

How would you like to do some horse riding on the Costa Blanca and ride an Andalusian – the most famous horse in Spain?  Better still, you can have classes with one of the masters of the Spanish school of riding, Victor Robles, who is well known throughout the northern Costa Blanca for his superb displays of horsemanship.

Victor Robles runs Los Robles and has around 100 horses and ponies in his riding school in Gandia.  It is here that he trains his Spanish school horses and here where you can do the most challenging and exciting horse riding on the Costa Blanca on Andalusians.  These horses are used in displays, are fully trained and quite exceptional.  They will provide you with a ride like no other!

Of course, horse riding in Spain takes many forms but it is for the Spanish school that it is most famous.  The Spanish school takes dressage (doma) to new heights of perfection with the Andalusian a ‘dancing’ horse able to undertake the most extraordinary movements.  Powerful, responsive, alert and quick, the Andalusian is an extraordinary horse to ride and completely unlike any European counterpart.

VICTOR ROBLES IN ACTION

In fact, to get the most out of an Andalusian takes considerable skill and finesse.  This is something that Victor has to excess – together with an acute, intuitive understanding of his horses and what makes them work well.  This he combines with years of teaching experience, which allows you to not only enjoy your lessons with him but also to learn quickly and efficiently.

Notable at Los Robles is the care and attention that Victor’s horses get.  Look around and you will see an array of superbly muscled horses, all in the peak of their condition.  Equally striking is that you will find that the horses at Los Robles (almost all are stallions) are both extremely well behaved and feisty.  Here you will not find ‘plodders’, the traditional tired and bored horses of many riding schools.  On the contrary, at Los Robles you will be able to marvel at horses that are responsive and full of life – what every rider wants and needs (irrespective of riding level)!

That said, Victor is extremely careful to match individual riders with the horse or pony that will suit them and their particular abilities.  So, at the stables there are tiny ponies equipped with special children’s saddles for young riders, along with larger ponies for the more experienced.  Equally, of course, some Andalusians are more appropriate for new riders than others.

POISED, ALERT,SUPERBLY TRAINED - AND RIDDEN BY A MASTER!

Needless to say, horse riding at Los Robles is not restricted to just riding within the secure riding areas (picaderos) within the stables.  Victor, like everyone else (including the horses!), likes going out on hacks and these are available most days.

The hacks are truly wonderful and go through the superb countryside that surrounds Los Robles.  This passes through a stunning area of verdant semi-marshland and agricultural land that is criss-crossed with tracks and paths – ideal for treks.

Of course, out of the high season, it is possible to go for hacks onto the fabulous La Safor beaches that are within a kilometre of Los Robles.  It is here that the horses can gallop at full speed and where you can revel to riding beside the Mediterranean on a magnificent Spanish horse, in a setting that is truly memorable.  On occasions, Victor takes midnight hacks to the beaches – which are, as you can imagine, hugely popular!

VICTOR ROBLES AND TEAM!
