HORSEBACK RIDING HOLIDAYS AND TRAIL RIDES IN ANDALUSIA
equestrian holiday in Andalusia

Horseback riding in Andalusia. The name " Andalusia " comes from the Arabic word Al-Andalus and the term is derived in turn from " Vandalusia " or land of the Vandals. Andalusia is marked by the Arabic influence. The Sierra Nevada is one of the major mountains of Andalusia. Andalusia is a traditionally agricultural region. Andalusia has a rich and strong cultural identity such as flamenco, and certain architectural styles of Moorish influence. The mild climate in Andalusia in winter, spring and fall makes the area attractive for tourism and horseback riding in particular.
