Let's go horse riding!
Whether you are an expert rider or you have no equestrian experience, exploring natural areas on horseback is quite an experience for the senses. And not just because you are in a high up position! A special euphoria comes over anyone who takes the horse for a walk, trot or canter, and it seems as if you can sense the sounds of the forest, the temperature of the air and the aromas of the pastures much better.
If you are a beginner, it will be very easy for you to experience these sensations on a morning or an afternoon ride, as there are many horse riding centres that organise guided excursions on riding trails. Trips that will enable you to discover magical places and heritage treasures that will surprise you around every bend.
If you are an expert, you will also find trails to spend a few days on horseback – guided tours to explore the landscape and to relive routes that were, until not long ago, very crowded. And, of course, at the end of the ride, waiting for both you and your horse will be fully-equipped accommodation with all services and amenities, so that you can rest after the day's efforts and prepare for the next stage. Between Barcelona and Montserrat, the Royal Way offers you seven days of riding through the amazing mosaic of landscapes of Sant Llorenç del Munt and Obac Natural Park. The dream of all nature lovers!
If you like horses, make a note of this event in your diary: the Lluçanès Horse Festival is held every year on the last weekend of January. If you want more information about this traditional fair dedicated to the world of carters, go to the website of Perafita Council.
