You will have the opportunity to become the guardians of the ancestral tradition of our culture: the transhumance, a horseback trip from Extremadura to Gredos Mountains in spring (North Transhumance ride) and from Gredos to Extremadura in autumn (South Transhumance ride). A progressive 7 days ride, following the Cañadas Reales, medieval cattle droves, North direction to Sierra de Gredos, crossing different regions and riding a long distance from the winter pastures in Extremadura to the summer pastures in Gredos Mountains. Spain is crossed by old cattle routes that served the pastoral economies of yesteryear. In Spain, these trails are called “cañadas reales” with 75m wide and around 800km long. They are still used by cattlemen who practice transhumance, spending summer in the mountains with their cattle and returning each autumn to the winter pastures. These old trails are more than merely routes for sending livestock to market. These routes are the toll motorways of yesteryear, the infrastructure that sustained transhumance. This is a real experience, travelling on horseback, you will follow the “Cañada Real” from Trujillo to Navarredonda de Gredos or vice versa, crossing 3 different regions in Spain (Extremadura, Castilla la Mancha y Castilla y León), riding in Cáceres province, Toledo province and Ávila province.
