Our horses live outside in the large paddocks with shelters which surround the castle. Above the tennis court we have a stables area with boxes and comfortable shelter when the weather is bad or the horses are ill and need to recover.
Around the castle there are 100 hectares of green, sheltered fields where the horses are left free to graze. They definitely lead a good life.
Our tack room is full of riding equipment - all english tack for our horses.
Helmets and body protectors of different sizes are available for our guests so that they can ride safely.
Some boots of different sizes are provided but if you have your own boots and helmets it is advisable to bring your own.
All guests riding at Santa Cristina must wear a helmet.
Two large sand arenas are available for our guests to test their skills. The ground is made of volcanic sand, typical of the area. One arena is used mainly for the flat work and the other larger arena is used for show jumping.
The flatwork arena is also lit with floodlights. At the opposite side of the castle we have created a 2.000 m cross-country course with beautiful wooden jumps and soft reliable ground.
