I HAVE NEVER RIDDEN BEFORE, WILL I BE OK?


Our horses are the safest to ride on the island these are the reason: 1 they have never went threw any abuse or neglect to the point they have to be adopted. 2. Most of our horses are geldings which makes them more gentle with human interaction, giving you a smoother ride. 3. Our horses came from a riding camp for little kids, so if the kids can do it from an early age then this is definitely ok for you.

Cantering is only allowed during a private tour. We only canter at low tide when the footing on the beach is firmer so as to avoid injuries to the horse’s tendons.
