We are so lucky to work with Conny Muennemann, who keeps her beautiful horses on the Suryalila Retreat Centre property. Conny has been riding and leading treks through this part of Andalucía for over fifteen years. Riding with Conny you will see the real Andalucía, which most tourists miss. You will be led past whitewashed hilltop pueblos, through sunflower fields and along stunning valley trails, passing ancient olive orchards and holly oak trees.

Conny can also take you on a spectacular day trek to a lake or into the campiña landscape, depending on the time of the year, where you will have a delicious vegetarian picnic lunch in the nature, packed by Suryalila’s kitchen.

We will have separate riding groups for advanced riders and more novice ones too.

Most of our horses are medium size (around 15 hands / 150cm), so please understand, that we can only accept riders up to 165 pounds / 11,8 stone (75kg). Helmets are provided.
