    Horse Trails

    The Hotel Cerro de Hijar horse trails are carried out at Finca La Rejertilla, very varied routes can be carried out, with different levels of difficulty and suitable for all audiences. The minimum duration is one hour, if the rider lacks previous experience, we recommend the route from one to three hours maximum, where you will have a first contact with the horse, knowing the technique and its handling on the route. If the rider has previous experience, they should notify the monitor and thus enjoy a more complex route, through narrower paths and with a little more difficulty.

    Before beginning each route, the monitor will give some basic instructions on the correct handling of the horse. All the routes are guided by a specialist technician, who has great knowledge and experience in handling horses, and who will give instructions on how to handle the horse and information about the landscape and curiosities of the area throughout the journey.
