The passion in Seville for everything that involves horses’ world is undeniable. There is a long equestrian tradition in the Andalusian capital, which is also booming. Who has not seen pictures of beautiful horse-drawn carriages next to the most famous monuments of the city? Here we will go a little further to discover the best routes riding these horses ourselves.
About a hundred equestrian centers are established in the province of Seville. Many of them offer routes through different municipalities and natural landscapes. Cazalla de la Sierra, Morón de la Frontera, San Juan de Aznalfarache or Carmona are some of the villages at the top of this list, but there are many other options to discover and enjoy.
The supply of horseback riding routes is very assorted, you can choose between rural areas such as Cazalla de la Sierra or Doñana, where you can see spectacular natural landscapes, and urban areas such as the city of Seville itself, where after your route you can enjoy one of our Guided Tours in Seville, for example the Night Tour Seville, the icing on the cake of a perfect day.
These routes usually leave from the Pinares de Aznalcázar and La Pueblo del Río. The Doñana National and Natural Park is unique in Europe due to its mosaic of ecosystems and biodiversity. Horseback riding near the Guadalquivir marshes and through the green landscape is a unique experience.
The Sierra Norte de Sevilla is one of the favorite destinations for campers and nature lovers. There are many natural attractions in this landscape: the river Huéznar, the Puente del Ferrocarril, from which you can see the entire mountain range, or the herds of fighting cattle that decorate the landscape with bulls and cows. Can you imagine contemplating all this on the back of a horse?
The Andalusian capital is another option for a horseback riding route. Its monuments and historical buildings, as well as its folkloric spirit, attract millions of tourists every year. Our tours through the city will be the perfect accessory for the horseback route, you can chooose between the Guided tour of the Alcazar and the Seville Cathedral, or in case you have less time the Seville Cathedral Guided Tour or the Guided Tour to the Alcazar of Seville. The nearest equestrian center is located in San Juan de Aznalfarache, a few minutes from the Guadalquivir River, and through this river you can reach the city, which can be explored from another perspective on a horse.
In the vicinity of Morón de la Frontera there are several riding stables. This area is known for being the best place to disconnect while riding a horse. A completely natural area where the only noise will be ours and that of our horse, apart from the animals that live there. Nothing better to get lost and disconnect for a while from worries and technology.
