Hola people

We are English yet now live in Tabernas in Almeria where the films were shot.

I personally agree with you in regards to the theme park of 'Oasys'.  It realy is very commercialized and mostly just for kids.  Hardly any mention at all that Clint was ever there!!  "Fort Bravo" however is more authentic and is slightly cheaper to get in, (14 euros).  It is much smaller than Oasys but has had hardly anything done to it as the owner, Rafa, derives most of his income from film companies that still use it to shoot films and commericals there.  The latest being a Spanish comedy western called '800 ballas'.  The income from tourists amounts to about 30%. 

We moved here to set up a holiday horse riding business as we wanted to give people the opportuntiy to ride where Clint rode in some of his westerns here!  Also, the scenery is truly dramatic..

Hope to see and hear from you all soon!

Hasta pronto!

New to this forum, but it looks good!!

Not sure if this is the right place to put this thread but we are now living in Tabernas in Almeria where our friend Clint filmed some of his westerns.  We wanted to set up a holiday horse riding business here giving people the opportunity to ride through some of the scenery that made some of the westerns so special.

We also did it for the love of the horses and the way of life here.  Very laid back and always sunshine!!!

Feel free to look at our site and hope to hear comments from other people.  (Including the man himself!).

Hasta pronto!!!!
