Explore Menorca by motorcycle and horse
To understand the close relationship between Menorcans and horses we have several options. Participate in some of the patron saint festivals of the towns and cities of Menorca, in which the horse is the protagonist, enjoy one of the equestrian shows held on the island, or better yet, actively participate in one of the many excursions and routes on horseback that are made through natural environments of great scenic value.
The routes you take with your rental motorcycle in Menorca will have the perfect complement to your holidays with these equestrian excursions in the heart of nature and on roads that are not accessible by vehicles.
The routes around the Camí de Cavalls can be done on short itineraries or with a 3 to 5-day program, which will cover this entire legendary path that goes all the way around the Island next to the coast.
But you can also make excursions on horseback through rural areas and pristine beaches and, with all this, the visitor is offered the chance to discover the island from a new perspective, discovering much of its environmental and cultural wealth.
As a result of Menorca’s declaration as a Biosphere Reserve, the Island provides the visitor with a wide amalgam of virgin spaces to discover riding, a particular network of rural roads that have been preserved despite the passing of the years and enjoy the magnificent landscape of the island.
That the Menorcan horse is a native breed cannot be understood without taking into account the importance of festivals, whose true protagonist is the animal. The work carried out by the Association of Breeders and Owners of Menorcan Breeds is also of vital importance, an entity that works to promote and promote the Menorcan breed horse and whose effort is due to the recognition of this breed as its own.
Along with traditional festivals, Menorian dressage plays a fundamental role in culture
of the horse in Menorca, as it forms its own equestrian modality. This style of riding finds its origins in traditional festivals, from which it takes differentiating figures until it becomes a show that, in the early 80s, was recognized as a sports discipline.
