It's been 6 years since my own horse passed and I haven't ridden since. My daughter persuaded me to book us onto a two hour ride with ranch la ofra whilst on a few days break in Benidorm. So glad she did! Tanja and Anna made us very welcome. The horses were in beautiful condition and were real confidence givers.... More

Tanja runs an excellent horse riding school and helped by Anna they offer excursions or "hacks" around the local area. The Ranch is based in a rural location, surrounded by orange, lemon, fig and olive trees and is really lovely. They gave us an excellent service, Anna picked us up from our hotel and we were given a short tour... More

The stable stuated in the most beautiful surroundings, mountains and streams, perfect for... More

Rancho la Ofra is a hidden gem in the Alicante countryside. We were only in Alicante, Calpe for a few nights but Tanja was extremely responsive and catered for all our needs, including one nervous rider. Her horses were just as well mannered and relaxed which made for a gorgeous morning ride in the sunshine. I would recommend Rancho la... More

My boyfriend and I were picked up by Tanja at Benidorm tram station, greeted at the ranch by a lovely cute dog (who then came on the back with us). After meeting our two horses, we had a very short walk round and we were off. It was so beautiful, the scenery was just stunning. Very hot so the horses... More

Arranged a pick up from benidorm tram station, which went perfectly, about a 45 minute drive and we were on the ranch, greeted by the very friendly dogs. After a short training session, we were novices, we were off into the beautiful back lanes. Scenery was beautiful, as a gift for my mother's birthday it was perfect. After the hack,... More
