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.
