Very afraid about covid but not afraid to lose clients of her inhospitality. very nice horses but very bad staff. If she hates people, I can understand but don't work with people then... Just go live alone with your horses in the mountains !

Great value with great people!
Jun 2019 • Couples
We went riding for an hour in June 2019 and had a lovely time. Even though we called at short notice, the owner picked us up from Rabat (15 minutes away by car) and dropped us off again once we were done. It was very nice seeing the local countryside and learning about how the horses are used on moviesets. Highly recommended!

Lacked the ultimate riding experience.
May 2019 • Family
Visited this Family run business with my 9YO. 30mins or less from St George’s Bay.
Horses and stables well kept and clean.
Booking was easy with a tour provider in Saint Julian’s(few steps from Burger King Paceville). He arranged transport for me and a visit for the next morning. Transportation was an additional €5pp paid to the provider.
The lady who collected us from the hotel was lovely friendly. Chatty. Accommodating. On arrival, horses were ready. There was no brief or instructions. Just to collect a helmet and stay in line. Hold the reins and not to leave big gaps. Was warned certain horses would fight one another. The guide was a different lady who was quite the opposite of the initial lady who collected us. Came across as she didn’t want to do the job. Abrupt. Didn’t talk. Used phone.
My son is a beginner. There were only questions in regards to his ability to control but no nurturing support except demands to hold reins as told. Etc. The guide was in and around the stables. On road. Cars passed often. No friendly conversation or information given about the horses or local area. Fortunately I was able to do this as I have experience riding and have visited Malta before. No versatility of route or ride. Felt like my feet were dragging slowly for 2hours as we rode in loops.
A young girl was asked to take photos for us at the end but no effort or attempt to capture a moment.
Wouldn’t book again with this provider personally but Would recommend to those who have little riding experience - experienced riders or those who have done a similar thing before will be unsatisfied. Perhaps it was just a bad day?
The dog Rosie - very friendly, obedient and adorable. She came along for half of the walk. Horses were not bothered by her at all.

Lovely experience
Dec 2018 • Friends
We booked the two hour tour with a pickup and drop off from our hotel

We were picked up on time, the driver was quite safe which makes a change as the drivers in Malta seemed abit crazy really compared to in the UK!

The horses were beautiful, both my friend and I are experienced riders so they gave us horses who they said 'were not for the inexperienced' I can vouch for that, my horse was very high spirited but personally I like that because it makes a difference compared to ridding an old slow dobbin. My horse was called Nero who is a stallion and he was great to ride but could get abit excited at times. If you know what you're doing though this shouldn't be an issue!

The horses were obviously loved and well looked after, as well as all their other animals they had on their farm which was nice. Our guide was nice, he couldn't speak great English but he tried to make conversation with us and whenever we rode past something interesting he gave is info about it.

Overall a very nice ride with beautiful views. I would use this yard again

Very relaxing
Jul 2018 • Family
Our family had a lovely afternoon horse riding. The horses seemed to be well cared for and well looked after. We were picked up from the hotel and the lady who picked us up chatted away. We all enjoyed it. We were not experienced riders so the pace was slow for us. Presumably we would be a bit faster if you were more able. Would recommend.

Had a lovely ride today, first peacefully calm in the countryside and with a fantastic fast ride at the end in the field. Loved it!

We had a great 2 hour ride, lovely horses, and nice scenery. The lady who picked us up was very friendly, as was our guide. I have done lots of riding, my husband had not, but we both really enjoyed it.
Recommended.

Scenic and tranquil hour ride
Jul 2018 • Family
The prices are good and the people who own the stables are nice, hard working people. Mariana and Katrine were extremely kind from the very first phone call inquiring about the trip. Mariana even picked us up from a different location after we missed our bus stop. This is a generationally owned business and you can tell they put a lot of love in it. Highly recommend for those who want a chill ride. If you are more experienced I’m sure they have harder paths just call and ask!
