At Ibiza Horse Valley, every horse lives in semi-liberty, free to roam among the stunning landscape of the canyon.
Needless to say, as a non-profit organisation, this is an expensive promise to keep. But it’s one that David and Monique uphold rigidly – their only desire being to give the horses a happy home. Consequently, the majority of costs have to be covered by donations and sponsorship. If you’re keen to help, there are a few ways to contribute to Ibiza Horse Valley. The first is to donate an up front, one-off sum; the second is to pledge a specified amount each and every month – as little as 3€ can make a huge difference; and the third is to make a contribution in return for an encounter with the horses – an experience our Guest Relations department can arrange for those staying at 7Pines Resort Ibiza.
Naturally, Ibiza Horse Valley experiences differ from the norm. The horses won’t be waiting to meet you at the gate, for example (they’ll be too busy running wild and free), however David or Monique will be on hand to inform riders about the importance of rehabilitation, not to mention each of the horses’ particular traits and rank among the herd, and a brief education on the journey that brought them here in the first place. After this, riders are introduced to the horses and each one chooses a partner for the day – a magical meeting of minds. Then, before setting off on a four to five-hour expedition to explore the island’s rugged northern landscape, everyone preps their own horse for the ride.
