Horseback Riding in Barcelona

Written by Ashley B

If you are looking to escape the hustle-and-bustle of the city. If you would like to experience the quiet sound of nature. If you want to go on a fun adventure with family and friends, I have the perfect activity. Escape away to Catalonia’s countryside and enjoy the trails while riding a horse. Make plans with your partner or family, and disconnect from your weekly stress. Submerge into the landscape and let the horse lead the way.

Here is a list of places you could go horseback riding in Barcelona.

Beginner

Poni Club Catalunya is the perfect place to take your little ones to. They offer first time rides for €15. You can also do a 30-minute trail tour (note: these tours are aimed for kids up to 7 years old). You can also host your child’s next birthday party at the Poni club. I am definitely feeling a wild-wild west theme.

Viator is a company that offers various tours within the city of Barcelona. Within their wide offerings of activities, they have included horseback riding for beginner riders. They provide a half-day course-riding tour, a light lunch, and a roundtrip transportation to the stable. Grab your cowboy boots, I’ll  meet you at the bus station.

  • My daughter and I visited Barcelona for a week last October. We did 2 tours with http://www.livingit.cat
    I promise they are great! Beautiful horses, nice trails and such a nice guide! I ride horses since I was little. My daughter just started. We both enjoyed the ride because LIVINGIT adapted the trail to our riding level. We did one tour and 2 days after we decided to do another one with them; so we could see different Parks. I really really recommend them.
