This tour gives a little insight of history surrounding the area of Alhaurin el Grande, The old Tower of Urique served as a lookout post for surveillance of the surrounding villages, overlooking rich citrus orchards as well as the fields of olive trees that make up the extensive and fertile Guadalahorce Valley, and involves a stop in a local venta where we can dismount from the horses for tapas and drinks (Not included in the price).

Great first ever trail ride
I had a wonderful experience of riding in a small group guided by Kalle. I am very new to riding (only had 7 months of weekly lessons) and was not sure whether I was ready for a trail ride, but desperately wanted to do it. The email exchange with Carol was great, I was honest about my experience and Carol assured me that Alegre was a perfect horse for me (which proved to be correct!!!). I found riding Alegre in a Spanish saddle and with bitless bridle extremely comfortable and secure; in fact, so secure that when Kalle suggested that I should try to canter to follow him and a fellow-rider Dorris, I had little hesitation and managed a few canters, including along a rather long section (which was a great achievement given that I had never cantered before). It was also an interesting and informative ride in the beautiful country side. I would highly recommend Ride with Me. Thanks a lot Kalle and Carol! Hope to go on a longer ride with you as I gain more experience before coming back to this area of Spain.

Excellent riding experience
I can highly recommend booking a trip with Kalle. My boyfriend and I went on the Sierra Blanca ride as it had a good length for our travel plans and the trip was amazing. Before booking a trip I read the comments here at TripAdvisor and wrote Kalle and Carol via email to find out more about the booking information and Carol replied within a short time. Carol was nice and kind to talk to and I decided to book the trip.
Having GPS on the phone, the place was easy enough to find, however, upon arrival it was a bit difficult to find the actual place, but shortly after we were greeted by their very sweet dogs which also joined us on the trip.
Kalle was a great tour guide and easy to talk to. He also help out my boyfriend with some tips on how to ride the horse as he has less experience and when there was enough space we would do a galop.

Amazing ride, galop over the roads and easy going through rough terrain.
Today we went on the Urique Riding tour with Kalle. We had an amazing experience, even while I had never ridden a horse before. Carol gave us a very warm welcome and we immediately had the feeling we were taken good care of. The dogs immediately came running at us and gave us a pleasent welcome. The horses looked great and were very sweat and are reliable.
