One of the pillars of Menorca's culture is the history and character of the Menorcan horse.The Menorquin breed was only recently recognised in 1987 although it has existed for many centuries. In the XIV century the horse was the main player in Menorca's defence system, associated with the bridle path known as the 'Camí de Cavalls', which runs around the edge of the island and is around 180 km. The route originally linked up the fortresses and watchtowers of the island and was regularly patrolled by soldiers on horseback. In recent times the path has been restored and is now the perfect way for riders to explore Menorca and the incredible scenery it has to offer. The horse remains the true star of local festivals - the local breed is famed for its shiny black coat and ability to walk on its hind legs in a move known as the 'bot'.
At the equestrian centre you will find a young team with extensive experience in the equestrian world. Toni, the owner, has worked with horses since childhood and successfully participated in various disciplines, horses are his passion. He breeds his own horses and knows Menorca, and its many paths well, from the back of a horse. His family comes from Menorca so he has a deep knowledge as well as love for the island. You will also be accompanied throughout by Maria-Elena who guides some of our other trails in the Gredos Mountains of Spain.
Anyone who loves nature will enjoy the excursions available here. The trail offers the possibility of getting to know the island from a new angle and the chance to discover the rich natural beauty and horse culture of the island.
PLEASE NOTE - all guests will need to pay a "tourist tax" of approx. 3€ (EUR) per day for their visit to Menorca. This tax is used to fund environmental and sustainable projects around the island and to counter the impact of tourism during the high summer season.
