But you smoked us out! My 10 year old doesn't like cigarette smoke, nor do I and if the 10 you smoked on the 3 hour trip really is necessary then maybe it should come with a warning sign. Other than that the trip was amazing and the views spectacular. A few little niggles...

My daughter is a competent rider although the western was quite different she took like it like a duck to water. Me on the other hand, I've not ridden in over 20 years and in the uk we pull left to go left but western it was quite different (we had to loosen left to go left or something) so all a little confusing with an older, inexperienced, non confident rider like myself although the instructor took great joy in making me look 'stupid' in front of everyone else and belittling me rather than supporting me whilst I spend most of the time worrying about my little girl and trying to make sure I was doing it right. Sensitivity would have been kind in this situation!! I never said I was a rider but was keen to give it a go until she felt the need to 'put me down' to me daughter and the other riders. It's not kind and certainly not required!!!

babies can ride ponies - pulled by parents, grown ups can go for a real ride... a nice spot where you can also have your intro training to horse riding

We have just got back to the UK after an amazing holiday in Villasimius in early July 2016. The highlights were our 2 evening treks on horseback, with the 'WOW' views from the headland over the turquoise bays and white beaches. Stefi is a brilliant guide, and her horses are really well looked after, sure footed and well trained, the western saddles are new and comfortable, and the route is largely traffic free along the edge of the saltwater lagoon and up through the scrubland to the hilltops overlooking the peninsula.
I took my teenage daughters with me and we are hoping to return again next year - what a wonderful way to see the area and to get out of the hotel complex- it is a 10 minute walk from the Timi Ama Hotel where we were staying. Thank you Stefi so much for looking after us and making us feel so welcome- big hugs to beautiful Pegasus, who carried me safely out and home again, and never missed a step!

We did the 2 hr evening excursion which we highly reccomend. The horses were great, well trained and obviously knew the route well.The trek lasted just over 2 hrs and it included beach walk a few hilly climbs to get great views over the local area. We were in a group of about 10, then on the way back split up into 2 groups so if people wanted to do some faster paced riding then they could go ahead. Wear long trousers and long top as there are a few bushes on the narrow trails that might catch you a bit.

We only found out about this place thanks to the staff at the hotel that we stayed at, and we we're glad that we did!

I believe after speaking with the proprietor that the TripAdvisor listing isn't quite accurate.

In a nutshell this is an opportunity to go horse riding around the south eastern tip of the island. Stefania took us on a +2hr long excursion with some extremely well trained and behaved horse. The views were amazing and this was extremely good value for money. My wife had never been horse riding before, and after a short tutorial, she was away without any problems.

As mentioned earlier, the horses are very familiar with the excursion route and its a very fun experience.

I highly recommend this if your in the area!
