    Centro Hipico San Mateo

    Hi there, I have recently moved from the UK to Gran Canaria and am seeking a place to enjoy my hobby of horses. I have many years experience of working with horses, and was wondering if you currently have any work or any opportunity to exercise horses? Please do not hesitate to contact me via email: natalie.sargent88@gmail.com Thank you for your time, Natalie Sargent
