Jay and Erika treat you like family from the moment you meet. Their commitment and hard work in caring for the welfare of all of their animals is beyond amazing and the riding is simply out of this world.It's hard to imagine more genuine people and a more authentic riding experience than these Andalusian trails on Spanish PRE horses. We stayed in a first rate 3 bed villa complete with swimming pool and all mod cons just a few minutes easy walking from the ranch and wanted for nothing! I look forward to returning many times and repeating the wonderful time that we shared. (Posted on 25/04/2018)

Great place run by great people. A lot of the horses have been rescued. Sunshine and horse riding with gorgeous views and (if you’re doing an all inclusive stay) amazing meals cooked for you each night! Can’t wait to go back for what will be my 4th visit in the next few weeks (Posted on 25/04/2018)

Thank you Jay & Erika for another wonderful holiday. I booked to come back here for my 3rd visit and brought my dad along for his 60th birthday. What a time we had! From the wonderful welcome (my dad was given a birthday card, fizz & truffles, as well as a welcome hamper), all of the beautiful rides on stunning Spanish horses, to the warm goodbye. It’s like seeing family every time.
Thank you Rancho Luz Del Sol xxx (Posted on 25/04/2018)
Absolutely brilliant riding yesterday Review by Amy

Absolutely brilliant riding yesterday. Erica was a fantastic instructor/guide to take myself and daughter out for 2 hours. Beautiful scenic hack. Would highly recommend going. My daughter regularly rides but I've rode 3-4 times over the last 13 years, she let us take it at our own pace. We walked, trotted and cantered (with me hanging on!) but felt totally safe riding Trinity. My daughter has never galloped before but she did yesterday, she was beaming from ear to ear! Lovely horses, all been rescued by Erica. She just oozes love for the horses and dogs. We will be definitely going again when we are next here. Thank you. (Posted on 25/04/2018)
