Highly recommend subset ride experience
Jul 2021 • Solo
Wonderful 90-min experience of sunset ride. Professional team that take care of everyone’s safety. Their horses are beautiful and gentle, easily connect with riders of any level. It makes the group feel good. Highly recommend.

I went with my family and we absolutely enjoyed the whole experience. I loved watching how much care is involved in looking after the well being of the horses.Mario was looking after us and giving us tips on how to ride the horses. He was guiding his helpers who were lovely. The path we went on was safe and we enjoyed the surroundings and views of the location.We definitely felt very safe.

Views were great but the treatment of the horses doesn’t sit well with me
Jan 2020 • Family
I visited here a couple of years ago with my sons....and whilst the views were stunning I can’t help but always remember how the man leading us all...had what looked like a broomstick stick...and when the horses next to me were being a bit rumbunctious he jabbed them really hard a few time on their noses/in between their eyes...
Now I don’t know if this is normal practice in training your horses but I know it shocked me and made me feel so uncomfortable at the time...whenever I think of that trip I always remember that and I feel so sorry for the horses...I personally don’t think hitting animals with a stick is a great way to train an animal or punish them!
I was also left outside in the dark for 30/45mins with my young sons waiting for a taxi long after everyone had left because they had forgotten to call one.....
So all in all...I don’t think it’s a good idea to go on these rides...the horses are not treated well and must live such sad lives

DONT READ NEGATIVE REVIEWS... READ THIS. What a brilliant experience. Bjorn over the phone was ok but Beverly and especially Mario were excellent. They matcjed the horses according to the individual's heights and experience. The horses looked majestic, well kept, nice and clean.
I felt a bit apprehensive when they didnt give us any padded vests... Just fluorescent vest and helmet but with 5 minutes of mounting the horse, a weird bond begins to happen between yourself and tje horse. With Mario fully watching over everyone like a hawk, within a few minutes, all fear or uncertainty diminished! My family and I enjoyed the ride ad well as the freedom to experience it as proper riders.
We loved it more than we anticipated.
Thank you Mario and Beverly. Thank you for the exquisite experience for me and my wife and the two kids. Will always come back.

Awesome experience!!
Jul 2020 • Couples
This was a great experience. We had a sunset ride and the views were amazing! 1.5hours of countryside. The horses are just beautiful and the people working there are so sweet and ready to answer any questions. We are total beginners and felt at ease. Highly recommend. We will definitely be back.

Horse riding

The kids loved cuddling the horses and feeding them hay. It was their first time horseback riding. The owners were very friendly. Great afternoon, surely we will be doing it again.

Absolutely a must do activity
Dec 2019
Thoroughly enjoyed this activity - very well organized right from start to finish . Mario communicated very well with me via emails when I booked this activity and was very accomodating when I had to reschedule this a couple times due to clashes with other activites. The horses were very well cared for and well behaved. We did the sunset ride which was absolutely gorgeous and the views were breathtaking. Highly recommend it. Mario took pride in his horses and was showing us what he fed them and how they were stalled since we were asking him .

Led around by people walking
Dec 2019 • Family
Really disappointing. Minimal checking about our experience with riding. Too many people, 17. Tired cranky horses. One person led 4 people on leads as they walked.if you were not led and had concerns on your horse there was in help.
