A team of professionals form the fields of equestrianism, education and health.
Equus Cerdanya’s experience allows for the best equestrian programs, centered on
education, instruction and tourism.
Equestrian activities with soul and values
We organize routes and activities from our soul, in which you will live an unforgettable
experience, you will connect with nature and you will learn how to interact with horses and
understand their emotions.
Our camps are designed for the younger ones to fully dive into the equestrian world through
a significative and cooperative learning, always from the respect towards the horses, nature
Moreover, in the camps we offer daily riding lessons and hacks and loads of fun activities.
Equitation is an essentially cooperative sport. Furthermore, this cooperation emerges between a human and an animal, what implies a form of communication which is stranger to both but created by them. We use this phenomenon, and we expand it in order to infer such cooperation to the own kids, which in turn potentiates the values of commitment and solidarity towards the others.
David Ausubel defines “significative learning” as the one that is not based on repetition of concepts but on progressively relating new concepts to well established pre-existing concepts, what allows students organize and link their learned ideas with what they already know. We follow this educative perspective to help our students understand the values and concepts behind equitation.
We understand and share the concerns that arise from leaving your own children in a summer camp. Safety is always our first priority. To ensure a safe environment, we have chosen a location without road crossings. It is compulsory to wear helmet and back protection, and we have established a ratio of 4 riders per group leader. We also daily educate our riders on how to safely approach and interact with horses.
At Equus Cerdanya, we pay special attention to helping our students interact respectfully with each other, bringing out the best in each of them as individuals, making them aware of their potentials and encouraging them to use such potentials to work and have fun together.
We offer a fully customized service and treatment based on the individual needs of each student. Our teaching method aims to help students to relate in a respectful way with themselves, with nature and with animals. To do this, we work with small groups of 15 students supervised by 3 instructors.
Equus Cerdanya is not only concerned about the staff’s technical expertise and leisure aspects, but is also aware of the emotional requirements of our students and strives to satisfy them. Our philosophy is based on inspiring mutual respect between rider and horse, and we are fully committed to such principles: we treat our students with the respect they deserve while instilling in them the values of discipline, effort and perseverance necessary for a sport as complex as horseback riding.

Why La Cerdanya?
Due to the healthy lifestyle, the quality of the air, and its environment surrounded by nature La Cerdanya is an ideal territory for healthy tourism development. Equus Cerdanya camps are held in rural houses or holiday camps. We always look for locations away from large urban centers, ideal for summer camps in the middle of nature.
We look for houses with the maximum comfort: own kitchen, quality beds, leisure spaces and adequate facilities for horses.
