My husband and I rode here in December 2016. The owner takes great care of his horses and offers a wonderful trip through the valley. The horses were calm. We walked the entire way, as it was very hot. The guide is a local, knows the area, plants, history and is a very interesting individual. If you are ready for... More

Everyone says the ATVs are a must do for the islands, I believe this is because of their views. The View where we stopped for pictures on the horse trail ride I'm sure I could rival any of you from the ATV tours and you get the benefit of riding a horse. I am an advanced writer and my husband... More

Wonderful ride through the lagoon, in the midst of pineapple plantations, mountain tops and little streams. You will do parts of all hiking routes. My wife is an experienced rider, I'm not, but it was do-able with some instructions. You will be picked up for free at your hotel and have a 2 hour horseback ride for 6.000 CFP per... More

The ride was breathtaking. Beautiful, well cared for horses who took you on a slow but careful ride through the valley. The views of the mountains were amazing. Stopped at belvedere lookout for photos. Free hotel pickup in an open air 4x4 which was a fun experience in itself! Highly recommend the tour!

Six of us thoroughly enjoyed out ride through pineapple plantations and across small streams. Lovely horses and good riding gear made the afternoon enjoyable for everyone.

While in Moorea on my honeymoon I thought a horseback ride would be romantic...I booked the activity through my hotel. I really enjoyed; however, it is not for people who need rules or are anxiety prone. The staff speaks very little English, which is fine for me, but my spouse had a hard time with...especially because the guide and what... More

We went on an easy leisurly ride through the Pineapple valley. It was an enjoyable break from water activities. We saw some gorgeous landscapes and lush vegetation. If you book through them then the activity is not expensive for French Polynesia standards as well. Horses were nice and the pace was calm, Highly recommended!

I went today and my rear is sore already! But that's because I never ride horses. The ride was 2 hours for 6,000 xpf per person (including the pick up from my hotel). I would have been fine with the ride being a bit shorter (even if it was the same price). The owner was nice and gave us good... More

This is a nice horseback ride and not difficult at all. The ride takes you into the pineapple fields, to the heart of the crater and is very scenic. The operator himself picked me up from the hotel and was very nice. He takes pride in his horses and it was a lot of fun. If you like horseback riding... More
