Club Hipico Maipe Horse Riding Centre

For those looking for something a little equestrian in the Cartagena area, whether it’s regular riding lessons or just a horsey jaunt as part of a holiday, Marja Honkala has everything necessary at Club Hipico Maipe. The facilities include stables for up to 50 horses, a top quality sand exercise ring of 80 x 50 metres, an indoor ring which is perfect during those hot summer afternoons and a large paddock area.

It all began when Marja couldn’t find stables for her own horses that would meet her own exacting standards. She wanted boxes that were cleaned daily, where the horses would be turned out, eat more than just once a day and a professional to be on hand constantly. Five years ago, Marja had the chance to take on Club Hipico Maipe and make it into the sort of place she’d be happy to keep her own horses. Now her customers can share in this equestrian environment.

What´s on offer at Maipe?

Livery – Marja provides a full service to a high standard, including hard food three times a day, forage three times a day, daily mucking out, seven days a week access plus special hours can be arranged if needed.

Schooling - Not everybody has the time to ride their horse as often as it’s needed. Marja offers a riding service, ensuring that the horses in her care have the exercise and practice necessary, she’ll even enter them in dressage competitions if required.

Lessons – All levels of rider are welcome at Club Hipico Maipe, either on the client’s own animal or on Marja’s riding school horse. For those not used to horses, special initiation lessons are available for those who want to make a ‘first contact’ with these amazing creatures. Whatever the level of rider, Maipe is a secure, relaxed and trusting environment.

Specialised training – For riders with more advanced needs, Marja can help coach them for competition level riding and riding in displays and shows. Also, for those wishing to learn to ride side saddle, once again, Marja can help.

Buying – Too often, when buying a horse, the potential purchaser (especially the first-time purchaser) can be distracted by the wrong factors. Marja can bring her expertise to bear and help any client purchase the right horse for them.

Second-hand shop – Club Hipico Maipe also offers the opportunity to buy bargain price equipment that is still of high quality and usability from the second-hand shop. For details of stock, contact the centre.

Sitting within easy reach of Cartagena and the Mar Menor area, Club Hipico Maipe offers a selection of services to suit all abilities and ages. The facilities are kept to a very high standard, always with the horses’ welfare in mind. What’s more, there’s even an Argentinian restaurant next door for a light bite or full meal before or after your riding lesson.
