I did the 2.5 hr ride for experienced riders. I have been riding for 20 years and this is a real gem! The trail wound through the lovely wooded plantation arriving at a pristine beach. It really felt like we were on a desert island. We had plenty of canters and galloping on a deserted beach is a rare, rare treat!!! Walking back through the surf was very meditative. We then rode back exploring more of the plantation.
They have 50 horses, lovely pasture and immaculate stalls. My horse was very responsive and my guide (Mallory?) was delightful and very committed to customizing the ride to me.
Note on Photographer -
I would have preferred a brief heads up/explanation before the ride. We got to the beach and she suddenly appeared and I was asked to pose etc.. Not what I wanted to be doing at that moment. She then rode behind us for our first gallop. it just threw me a bit as I wasn't sure how long she was staying. In her defense she left very quickly so we could have the beach to ourselves again. I just would have preferred a heads up at the barn, explaining what was going to happen, so I wasn't surprised. I only bought one photo as I didn't want to spend more money but she took amazing photos.
