  • Hello, Paula! I really like your blog and I have found some useful information here. I was wondering if there is any place in Barcelona where I can ride a horse only for a few hours, because I don’t have the possibility to stay in a camp. I am looking for a ride on the beach between 26-30 of July. I would appreciate your help!
