Joyful ride

We had a very good time while horse riding. Our instructor was pleasant to deal with. We rode through a very nice forest and an impressive glacier river. The horses where well behaved and listened very well to our commands. The only downside was, that we saw the glacier only from quite a distance.

Good for mixed abilities

The actual path itself is just a rocky gravel track which wasn’t the most interesting. We were unlucky as it was cloudy so couldn’t see the glacier but obviously this couldn’t be helped. At times therefore it may be a little boring for a more experienced rider (I was told to hold the buckle of the reins like a beginner so was literally just plodding) but we did get two canters in!

Awsome

Very good experience, nice staff and the horses are very calm. Note: this is a very good trip for beginners.

Alright

Was fun but short and my horse was very slow I was always at the back of the group and couldn't hear the instructor. No real instruction or preparation you arrive and they put you on a horse. That said the girl who worked there was nice enough to pick me up and drop me off in town and the loction is very pretty.

Disappointing

They cancelled our trip at the last minute. Very disappointing considering that this is the only reason we stayed the night in Franz Josph. They have told us that we will get a refund. Nothing as yet though.
