The first thing I would say as a tip is: when you are trying to get to the stables, you go down a very long unpaved road...keep going, keep going, keep going. We thought we had made a wrong turn, but, the stables are at the very end.
We went during the hottest time of day, on one of the hottest days, yet, it wasn't unbearable. We took the beach ride. It was a little warm, yet the shaded ride to the beach kept us cool. Our guide was great! I think her name was Katie? Everyone was so friendly. It ended up being just our family(4 of us) and the guide. What a nice personal ride.
I agree with another reviewer....if you wear shorts, have a blanket to protect your legs. I wore capris and felt fine, but my son had shorts and his legs were a little sore.
Our guide was very friendly! She was very patient with our inexperienced riding. We trotted when we could, I'm sure if we wanted, we could have even done more. The beach was beautiful! All alone! No one around. Would have been fun to be able to get off the horses for a minute, but we were there for horseback riding, right? Met on the beach with their own personal photographer. It was nice that they provide that, yet, I don't really like feeling the pressure at the end to buy more things. (I didn't see the sign that said no loose items....I had my camera, and was taking pictures the whole time). I bought two pictures..I believe 50 bucks, but, it was one of our whole group on the beach, LOVE it.
They do seem to have a monopoly during the summer if you want to ride on the beach, no other horseback stables can be on the actual beach until September. This stable gets by this by actually owning the land that we rode on. So, this was a little pricey in my eyes, but, we loved every minute!
People were friendly! Free ice cream at the end while you look through your pictures. Plantation was beautiful...saw some deer on our ride.
