We thoroughly enjoyed the 90 minute horseback ride on the coast. The owners were very kind and patient and accommodating to all skill levels.

My husband and I enjoyed the beach ride. Toby and John are the perfect guides for inexperienced riders and especially children. The horses are well-chosen for each rider. The beach was deserted and we rode for over an hour. Highly recommend.
