    The guides were excellent and the horses are very well trained. We had a large group with both experienced riders and some who had never been on a horse. They did a great job matching horses with rider ability. The timing of the ride was perfect for beautiful sunset photos on the beach and a couple other locations. Highly recommended!

    It was great, stunningly pretty horses, amazing views. The only bad thing is that they don't put the water on, accessing the horse riding area is complicated (if you have a small car it may be difficult to climb the ramp) and if you have experience they don't let you deviate too much from the path or change the order.

    Overall a great family experience. The staff was friendly and accommodating. My wife and 5yr old had a saddle with a child seat and my 8yr old had her own horse with an escort. The ride on the beach was a shorter than expected but still worth the experience to get those pictures.
