CLUB HÍPICO MOLINO DE FUEGO
The Club Hípico Molino de Fuego, in Estación de San Roque, is almost a place of worship for horses. It is a country estate with history and soul and is going through the early stages of renovation and development at the moment.
At the end of 2017 the estate started going through an extensive refurbishment of the pre-existing facilities to turn them into what they are now. The new owners were clear from the beginning that the place where the horses lived had to offer in the best conditions and comprehensive horse care. It is the ideal place to learn horse riding and be part of a big family who love nature, sport and a healthy lifestyle.
The estate dates back to the early 20th century and a great part of it was dedicated to cattle farming. These 13,000 m2 of land are becoming a reality as a project in the present and for the future, under a rigorous construction plan where the original construction elements have been respected to the fullest. The vision of the owners has materialised into an impeccable space in an Andalusian style with a British influence.
The new Molino del Fuego Club is a project with character and a vision for the future. With everything is focused on horses, it is impossible not to appreciate the surroundings. This is an estate where learning and enjoying nature with the family is possible and to keep building up the arguments of a club will make history.

There are a total of 40 stalls, which are distributed around the oldest part of the estate and have gone through a full regeneration plan but maintaining the old feel and stalls in the new sheds. The change is spectacular. In the VIP shed as it is known the horse can enjoy space, fans and background music.
Also, each owner can see their horse via an app at any time of the day via the installed cameras. At the back of the shed, there is a custom-made harnesses room so that each member has a splendid space for them to keep their harnesses. Alongside the track are the paddocks perfect for those who want to board their horses, although the club also offers the option to share a stall.
