I get to cross this off my bucket list. The instructor/tour guide was wonderful. He understood that I was scared and catered to my needs. The scenery was unbelievable. We rode over rugged terrain, gold course, rain forest and finally to the Caribbean Sea. You must go and try. I did, and I'm so glad.

Awesome view! However, felt like we were being hurried. We rode out, sat on the beach and then came back. Does not live up to the description

I've been riding with these folks for more than 20 years and have always been satisfied. The horses are well cared for, well trained and responsive. The guides are excellent riders and take great care of their clients. The scenery is spectacular! The 2 hour advanced ride is challenging but well worth it!

We took five children horse back riding. It was a little hard to reach them by phone, so we just showed up and were able to go on the 1.5 hour ride with another group. We had a nice ride through the Palmas golf course over to the ocean.

This was by far the WORST EXPERIENCE in our family's history of traveling. I called a day before to make a reservation and to find out wether they allowed 5 and 7 year olds to rides. The gentleman on the other end said absolutley come on over. Once we arrived I noticed how malnutritioned the horses were. Thirsty, hungry, slow,... More

We made reservations for Good Friday. We double-checked - we asked are you sure you're open on Good Friday? - "Yes." We arrived for our reserved time and no one was there.

Rose for two hours along trails and the beach. Excellent wranglers--we are novices. If you like to trot you will love this. We did!

We booked 2 spots on the Sunday 10a.m. ride. We were the only 2. This made it very nice and relaxing. We actually had 2 guides go with us because one was training a young horse. Louis and Jesus. It was a lot of fun, easy to do as the horses and very calm and well trained. They even have... More

We went on our last trip here, my wife's horse kept stumbling and almost falling. The horses looked sick. We went back to look at the horses this time and they look malnourished, ribs sticking out and sick looking so we didn't go again. Makes me sad to see overworked and underfeed animals. We fed them some grass and left.
