Welcome to Pegasus Riding Centre

A small family stables, run by horse lovers, for horse lovers. We offer horse riding in one of the most beautiful areas of Spain for all ages & abilities. Whether you are looking for just a gentle session in our arena or a more adventurous trek through the valley, we would love to welcome you.

Our objective is to provide a personal & unique horse riding experience for both,  locals and visitors. We are located just a short walk from Orgiva town centre, in Granada. Enjoy a morning horse ride through the scenery made famous by Chris Stewart in his book Driving Over Lemons. In the evening, maybe try some fancy footwork in our arena and watch the sun go down over the spectacular mountains of the Sierra Nevada range.

At Pegasus Riding Centre our horse’s happiness is important to us & we support a natural horsemanship approach. All our horses are barefoot & enjoy the freedom of living outside in a family group with a forest for shade/shelter and plenty of room to roam & roll.

Our experienced & BHS qualified instructors are happy to teach both, complete novices and more experienced riders alike. Lessons & Treks are available in English & Spanish Language. At Pegasus Riding Centre, both, your horse and your instructor, will be your teachers helping you to learn step by stepm, one hoof at a time.

We came to Pegasus for 2 days during our stay in the area & this was definitely the highlight of our trip! My boys and husband were novice riders so Becky spent time teaching the basics in the outdoor school. One of my sons was really nervous but with Becky’s patience & encouragement he made great progress & is now missing his pony ‘Harley’! We did a 1 hour trail on the first day then a 2.5 hour tapas trail on the second day, which I would highly recommend for an authentic Spanish experience. The scenery in the area is stunning and therefore it was some of the best riding I’ve had. Becky and her team clearly love their horses & they are all obviously well looked after. I can’t recommend Pegasus highly enough, thanks again Becky, Shiner & Anna!

Our first time horse riding since we were kids was made easy with the help and guidance of Becky. We went on a 2 hour tapas trail ride, with an additional 30 minute lesson at the beginning and 30 minute break for tapas at a mountain-side cafe. The horses were well behaved and responsive and Becky's instruction was very calming. The regional landscape is also stunning and we enjoyed the local tapas. Becky is also a native English speaker so communication was fluid.

Becky is such a good teacher. She sees what you have to learn and she is able to let you learn those things. I took lessons as beginner. To get more confidence with and on horses. She is amazing in her job. Rose

I had a fantastic ride with Becky, which is a very enthousiastic guide. We got into the wild for a 4 hour trip, I would definetely do it again! You're surrounded by nature, we didn't almost see anyone. Hills up we speed up a little, all very save and secure, and for the rest we had a very nice and relaxing pace. Becky is very friendly, very experienced and she is really seeing what your are capabele of. I was riding on Bonita and fell in love, such a beautiful and sensitive horse. I would really recommend Pegasus to others beause Becky and her horses are capable of giving you a pleasant time in a very nice area.

From booking our ride with Becky to sitting astride our rides on Bonita and Amber our experience was just perfect. We did a two hour trek along the ancient olive grove pathways. Whatever your level of expertise/experience Becky will have the right horse selected for you. We had an amazing time and would love to do it all again.
