Horses were well taken care of. The guide, Kendal, was absolutely great! He knew a lot about the area, about the wildlife and its history. The ride was great, not the typical horses-walking-in-row tour, but a but challenging and a lot of fun. He turned...More

Not sure they have. I got the recommendation by our hotel. It was really great. They have 2 tours a day if I'm not mistaken 9 and 1. But not sure about it. I would ask the hotel you are going to be staying at.

I don't believe so however you have to be able to lay forward over the horses neck on steep inclines. The ride is in the mountains and the terrain is steep.
