When we visited the riding school and private stables El Álamo – Club Hípico on the Palmitos Park road for the first time, we felt like walking into a 5* hotel for horses and ponies. Happy and well kept horses and ponies in neat & tidy surroundings where ever we looked.

El Álamo – Horse Club and Stables

The private stables  are open every day from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm and then again from 4:30 – 8:30 pm. At the midday heat the stables are closed to the public, providing the necessary peace for the horses. If there is a heat wave, the horses are not ridden at all.

Horse Riding Gran Canaria

There are two large riding arenas for classes and training and another smaller pen for letting the horses one at the time enjoy the sun and warmth on their own. Lots of trees sprinkled across the stables offer plenty of shade.

Close to the arenas, there is a chill-out area and bar with coffee and refreshments. Parents can watch their kids taking lessons or simply take a break after they have taken their horse for a ride.

We had a chance to sneak peek while three horses were groomed at midday at the same time. One could tell that horses and humans really enjoyed it.

General Offers:

  • Private Riding Lessons
  • Group Riding Lessons
  • Volting Lessons
  • Ponywalk
  • Private Horse Stables

Volting is often described as acrobatic riding or gymnastics on horseback. Click to find out more about equestrian volting on Wikipedia.

The horses and ponies at El Álamo

El Álamo’s own dozen horses and ponies are available for riding classes and pony walks. Another dozen booths are occupied by private horses and cared for by their respective owners with the support of the very caring yard helpers. Read more about riding teachers and yard helpers by  clicking here.

The People at El Álamo

When we talked to the owners of the stables, Sylvia and Clemens, we could sense how much care and hard work had gone into their project to create a truly peaceful environment for both people and animals. And it paid off!

The result is a relaxing idyll for club members to recharge their batteries spending time with their horses only 5 minutes drive from the busy hustle and bustle of Maspalomas. And beautiful stables for their beloved horses.

How to get there

The El Álamo Club Hípico is located about 2 km from Aqualand on the road to Palmitos Park. Just look out for the purple sign on the left hand side.

Best equestrian center in Gran Canaria.Well-kept and clean facilities, as well as the horses in good condition. They receive attention, affection and adequate food, and above all good treatment by the staff of El Álamo. Good classes too, they take into account the level of the students and do not rush anything for the simple fact of earning money. Very professional people, considerate and with a big heart and love for horses, not only the teachers but also the grooms ❤️ Grateful to be here
