Equestrian Foto Tour – Mare Round-Up of Almonte

Wild horses from the Doñana National Park are rounded up and brought to the village of Almonte by numerous horsemen in traditional costume.

At lunchtime, the market square of the village of Almonte fills with people. Be part of this 500-year-old tradition and watch on as the dust is whirled up as a herd with mares and foals is driven to the marketplace.


Almonte, Saca de las Yeguas, is a village where wild horses from the Doñana National Park are rounded up and brought to the village by numerous horsemen dressed in national costumes. There they are blessed, sorted, examined and sold in a ceremony. All horses that have not been sold may then return to the Doñana, where they will live for another year as truly wild horses. A breath-taking experience.

A Campo Abierto

We also visit the estate of Don Alvero Domecq – founder of the Spanish Riding School in Jerez and world-renowned bull and horse breeder. You’ll see herds of cows with the calves, mares their foals and the powerful bulls living in the open countryside (a Campo Abierto). Observe riders to go about their daily work and watch in awe herds of wild bulls are driven across the land to their next pasture.


Flamenco at the beach

The next destination of your trip is located on the beach. With your camera, you’ll be able to capture the fiery movements of a flamenco dancer accompanied by a Spanish rider. Feel the harmony between the horse and the dancer against a wonderful backdrop.


Incredible images await as you head to the Atlantic Coast and photograph horses swimming and enjoying the waves. For a small fee, you can even go swimming with the horses.

Yeguada La Pasión

During your stay you’ll also visit our own estate, Yeguada La Pasión, and get to see our powerful stallions in close quarters. As well as your own photos, we’ll also take photos of you together with the noble animals.

You’ll also have the extraordinary opportunity to meet the famous stallion, Ulysses – known to many who have seen him perform at horse shows.


Feel free to take riding lessons during or after your trip at our property, Yeguada la Pasión, or even enjoy a relaxing ride on the Atlantic coast. We have the perfect hourse and trainer regardless of your riding level.
