What an amazing experience! We went on a Golden Bay sunset riding journey - 90 mind well spent. The staff was lovely, I had the chance to ride Smokey next to Kevin as I'm a beguiner. My friend was free to galopé as she wishes as she was more experienced. We managed to take a bus to get there, from... More

Great horse riding with teens overlooking Golden Bay. Took the 90 min sunset ride and enjoyed it thoroughly. No beach, unless you mean rocky cliffs, but the scenery was amazing and the horses were easy to manage. Good for beginners and experienced riders (we had both).

Just been for a morning ride with our kids (age 5 & 7). Kids really enjoyed it and Mario selected perfect horses for them (they do not ride). Would highly recommend, good views and something a little different. Had lunch directly on the beach afterwards (munchies) really good too and only 5 mins walk. Took an e-cabs taxi from St... More

Absolutely the best ...... Lovely horses that are obviously well cared for by Mario and his staff. I've never rode before but after just 5 minutes I was very comfortable for the next 90 minutes in the saddle! Well worth a visit.....

I had a great ride! The name of the horse I rode was Rum. He was so sweet and a little bit cocky! It was nice to meet him. My boyfriend rode Pepsi, this horse was really calm, lovely and good. I really want to go back someday!

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our ride with Naomi. The horses are very well cared for, the stables clean and the staff knowledgeable. Mario,the owner, was approachable and allowed us to look round before we decided to book our ride. The horses are NOT undernourished-they are horses that are different to most European breeds and do not have the... More

Mario, his staff and horses are amazing! My three daughters and I called into port on a cruise ship and wanted something unique to experience in Malta. From the main port, it took about 30 minutes by taxi to arrive at the stables. Mario's horses are beautiful and the stables are lovely. My daughters are beginners so he ponyed them... More

I thoroughly loved my ride while visiting Malta. I am experienced so the instructor allowed me to lead the group as he had to pony 6 riders from his own horse. The horse was well trained, and took my cues calmly. The beauty of the countryside is a treat that many tourists do not see unless they take the horseback... More
