Horses and Culture in Menorca

Enjoy a wonderful riding holiday with your family, far away from mass tourism. You can choose from a wide range of mountain biking, hiking and water sports (diving, kayaking, surfing, water skiing, swimming) and much more.

Menorca - a largely undiscovered island, spared from mass tourism, with the most beautiful untouched nature. And here lies the Reitz for our friends of the equestrian sport on this wonderful little island. Here on Menorca a horse breed could develop. Of course there is an excellent offer for the water sports enthusiasts among you and Menorca shines with more than 60 wonderful sandy beaches. Menorca also spoils its guests with its exquisite cuisine and cultural offerings. The island was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1993. Thanks to the diversity and beauty of nature, mountains, meadows, forests, bays and not forgetting the sea. The "Cami de Cavalles" horse trail, with a length of about 200 kilometres, runs through forests and a unique rocky landscape. The typical Menorcan vegetation such as pines, holm oaks and olive groves can be admired here and line the riding path.

The Menorquiner is a strong black warmblood-horse with a stick-measurement of 155 - until 170 cm.

A frugal, resistant and energetic horse which is suitable both as a dressage horse and for driving carriages. The horses have character and are very balanced and despite their slim graceful stature very robust.The Menorcans have always had a special relationship with their horses. Every weekend, trotting races take place on the two racecourses. A Balearic Equestrian Federation has 9 clubs that organise competitions and tournaments in the three main equestrian disciplines. A very special experience for every nature lover is exploring the island on horseback.

The island's vegetation covers an area of 19,000 hectares. This area is not used for agriculture. Menorca has three major tree species: holm oaks, pine trees and wild olive trees.

A true paradise stretches for about 216 kilometres along the coastline. There are more than 60 beaches on the island which are spread along the coast and represent a big tourist magnet. The beaches, which are mostly south facing, have fine whitish sand and the ones north facing have a slightly coarser reddish sand. A beautiful play of colours to the pure and crystal clear water. Menorca has been declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, due to its water and beach quality.
