    The farm and location was absolutely beautiful. The tour was confirm with just my partner and myself. The instructor didn’t speak much English even though it was stated an English speaking instructor. The horse I was given to ride was very naughty (not sure if this was just a once off behaviour) it kept stopping to eat grass and doing what it liked until it ended up just bucking until I fell off, very scary and all within 5 minutes of the tour starting. Would not recommend for anyone who has little experience with horses.

    It was a very nice tour, very nice reception and experienced tour guide. We have never ridden before and it is also recommended for beginners.

    The riding was wonderful, the tour (1 hour) was completely sufficient in my opinion. The landscape was sensational. Our riding instructor was very nice. There were only discrepancies in the collection, but these were resolved by telephone. A highly recommended trip.
