Nice ride

Lovely staff and it was a really nice day all around. This ride is definitely for beginners and you don't get to do a lot of trotting or canters (about 1 min of trotting 3 or 4 times on the ride). Beach was lovely, took my younger sister (12 Yr old) and she really enjoyed the ride, think it's the perfect one for first time riders! If you want to do more trotting or cantering I would recommend booking a more advanced trek (staff recommend the 2 hour ride)

Amazing Beach Trek for my 40th Birthday!

This trek was simply magic. The guides were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We had a group of 8, 3 adults and 5kids, and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The weather was stunning and the views simply breathtaking. I'd highly recommend this trek for an unforgettable experience ❤️

Great experience

Both of us are novice riders, Vanessa, was very friendly, helpful and patient, after giving us the safety chat and showing us how to get on and off the horses, we got on and started our adventure. There are 2 rides, we went on just the beach one, after getting used to the motion of the horse, it was an amazing experience. I would advise that you wear jeans, because the stirrup straps can dig in to bare legs

Insecure track

For our first trip it was quite desappointing because apparently the track horse they are using atm is a new track so the way was partially bocked with thorny plants what made the horses quite scared. My partner's horse jump (and apparently the inspector didnt know that horse could jump) when saw this thorny plants then my partner fell to the ground. My partner didnt hurt herself badly but could be bad. So was a new track, with thorny plants in the way, with scared horses with me and my partner who never ride horses before. The inspector was attentive and said they would change the track next time. Maybe was just unlucky but could and real bad. The beginning the track there are couple stell posts fence that could be dangers too if some beginer fall there too. So, ride was good but I think there are some safety things that could be improved.
