Beautiful! It was a wonderful ride right on the beach and on the way back through a beautiful forest. For us as beginners, however, the 3-hour ride was too long. I would recommend the 1-hour ride for inexperienced riders, as everything starts to hurt quickly due to the unfamiliar posture. 1 star deduction for the fact that our guide spoke a few sentences in German but no English, so that communication was difficult. Sometimes we had the feeling that he was a bit annoyed to be on the road with absolute beginners, who of course cannot keep the horses perfectly under control.

Perfect for 1 person who has never tried a horse before

Very good guide who comes to help us in the event of a problem Too bad there was no break between because the knees took a knock asleep and at the end downhill risk of injury The ride plus the gallops were great , we are taught to steer the horse
