Mijas - Open the registration period to participate in the VI Equestrian Route along the Beach
This activity is organized by the departments of Tourism and Agriculture in collaboration with the Peña Caballista Mijeña
The Tourism area launches this activity for Holy Week to influence the most deeply rooted traditions in Andalusia. "This year we have emphasized Fitur in our Passion Week and, as a prelude, this route brings visitors closer to the folklore and typical customs of our land, which in themselves represent an increasingly popular tourist attraction," explained Martín. Likewise, the also first deputy mayor added that “with this route we show one of the most significant landscapes of Mijas, such as the fusion of the mountain and the sea through an animal that is so loved by tourists such as the horse. This event allows us to repeat one of our lines of work, such as outdoor activities, since, after the pandemic, it is the most requested by visitors”.
The Councilor for Agriculture, Arancha López (Cs), declared that “it is a long-awaited route for all horse lovers, but also for the residents and tourists who visit us, who enjoy that image, seeing the horses walk along the Mijas beach”. "We are going to enjoy that time on the beach with the horse, an image that many municipalities do not have and that is a privilege that we have to take advantage of," said the president of the club, Juan López. At 10 in the morning, the departure from Finca El Ahogadero is scheduled and from there it will depart in the direction of Cerros del Águila to reach Nanet beach, where the one-kilometer route along the Mijas coast will begin. "Riding a horse is an impressive feeling of freedom and relaxation, a horseback ride serves to escape you, and if we combine it on the beach, it is impressive," said the president. Once the ride along the coast is over, the horsemen will finish the activity in Los Olivos Park in La Cala de Mijas. "We invite everyone to participate in this activity and to enjoy this day in which the horses walk along the beach, a picture that only occurs once a year", declared the councillor. Registration is free and can be formalized by calling 635 976 703.
