Evertything was great, the horses, the stables and the weather. The morning is the best time to go. This time of the year you may encounter heavy rain in the afternoon. Don’t forget your camera, there are amazing views and vistas.

We have been here 5-6 times. The horses are gentle for inexperienced riders, including a 7-year old who had never ridden before. Guides are entertaining and the scenery is spectacular. Love this place!
