My daughter loved this experience. We are from New Zealand and the riding is a bit different there. She loved being able to help put on the saddle and brush the horse before riding. The horses looked well looked after as well.

We did the ride and swim option as a surprise for my sister for her birthday. Her and her son went for the trail ride and swim. Her son had a great time on the trail ride and a blast swimming with the horses but my sister mentioned to me the owner was quite…. Stern, short, and even rude. It was just them on the trail ride and of course my 8 year old nephew had questions! After 3/4 questions, Peter had enough. And basically repeatedly told my nephew to stop talking. ( He was serious )

The trail ride portion was only about a half hour which was shorter than expected but still a good little ride.

I met them at the beach where they were to swim with the horses to get some good pictures for them (I’m a photographer) - From nearly the beginning, it was apparent Peter was… odd.
He made comments about one woman being “chunkier so he wouldn’t do what he did to the skinny girl” ( push her off the horse in the water ) He repeatedly told my nephew to just stop talking… And the way he spoke to and treated the volunteer girls that were there with him was just rude.

The swimming portion was quite unique and I’m sure my sister and nephew will never forget it, but that being said, if he’s still the one to run the program, we wouldn’t book again.

An awesome adventure for our family.
Absolutely amazing time with the horses and the wranglers . We will be back!

My partner and I signed up for the 2 hr classic trail ride experience and it was more than worth it! We got to warm up and get comfortable in the ring, catered to our individual riding experience, then a nice hour-long ride that included stops for photos, and each of us taking a turn leading.
This is NOT a get-on-a-robot-horse-and-ride-in-a-line for an hour. Peter makes sure each of his guest's get what they are looking for out of the ride.

We will definitely be back!

Great Ride!

I phoned in advance and spoke to peter about what i was looking for and knew that he would be the best person to trust in putting my 3 year old on his horses.
(They provided her and I with a staff member to lead the horse, while letting her feel like she was in control the whole time)The comments about him being stern and a perfectionist are entirely true, and that is why i brought my child here to ride. The staff were very hands on and informative with every step of the ride. This was not only a " pony ride" for kids but a riding lesson before we began, they took the time to see that everyone was comfortable on the horses before we ventured up the mountain paths. It was a very relaxed environment and we were all comfortable. The views from the property was beautiful as we weaved through the mountain side.

If you are looking to walk in to a stables that is pristine condition and they throw you on a horse to follow them around then look elsewhere.

Took my 7 year old grand daughter for her first trail ride. Peter and the girls were very professional and informative. Peter took his time with us to make sure she was comfortable with the horse. Once on the horse and after instructions she went on the trail ride. She was thrilled and the smile on her face was priceless. After the ride she fed and brushed the horse down, which she loved. Again everyone there was very attentive to her. Will be back next year, she can't wait. Would highly recommend this to everyone. Thank you Peter and your wonderful staff.

My husband and I booked this 2 hour ride for our vacation. Overall was a great enjoyable experience. Peter took the time to make sure we got comfortable with the horses and the horses got comfortable with us. We did training getting on and off the horse, stop and go procedures. We went up the mountain and had an amazing view where Peter kindly offered to take photos of us.

Peter is very knowledgeable and intune, we also enjoyed his sense of humor. They were all very nice and pleasant.

Thank you for a great time.

Peter took good time to explain western style and to have us practice it. That was fun, and also quite different from what we are used too. We then went for the trail we had booked with great riding, lots of climbing for the horse and a fabulous view. Thanks Peter and team!
