Amazing experience!!

Our guides were terrific!! They took the time to ensure we had proper training before and during the ride, including pairing us with the best horse based on our experience level (we were first-timers). The views were breathtaking, the ride was smooth, the horses were well training... couldn't ask for a better experience! We also got to see peacocks, hogs, cattle, sheep and goats along the way. We highly recommend this tour!!

Great day for a ride.

The people, especially Don were great. The terrain was really not great for the horses. One of the horses fell forward on it's knees and got some abrasions. A suggestion maybe to improve on the paths to create more of smoother road for the horse's and their footing. I know the dirt is the red clay and when wet gets very slick. There were great animals on the farm, duck, pigs and peacocks big cactus and great flowers. The view's were spectacular, high cliff scenes to take pictures at. Bring some granola bars the horses love them!! All in all Don made sure we were informed, no one got lost and we all made it back safely!!

Guides were patient, knowledgeable, and obviously cared for the horses. The ride was a great balance between riding and stopping for photos/rest for horses/opportunity for pictures. We loved seeing all the other animals on the hillside farm. We would definitely do this again! Highly recommend! Loved the gallop at the end…awesome!!

The tour guides were both knowledgeable and helpful with guidance for controlling your horse and what to expect along the way. Beautiful scenery. Would have loved to have ran my horse longer. She gave it a go but tired out about halfway. It was a hot day. Wonderful experience for beginner and intermediate riders.

Great for my non rider husband.

Beautiful clean farm. Seasoned horses for first time riders. Horses were sound and sure footed on steep trails. Safety helmets and detailed riding instructions given before first ride. I have owned snd ridden for 50 years and had a great time and so did my non- riding husband.
