If you're considering booking horse riding while in Mauritius i would really recommend going with Centre Equestre De Riambel. Myself and my husband were so pleased we decided to book this with Arunima as she was amazing from start to finish and put my husband (a non-rider) at ease straight away. The horses were all in fantastic condition and Arunima... More

Having been bitten by a horse when I was a small girl, I was incredibly reluctant and nervous to go horse-riding, but what is a honeymoon if not a time to challenge yourself and do things you wouldn't normally? Having spotted that Centre Equestre De Riambel offered a beach horse-ride at sunset, my then husband-elect gently suggested we give this... More

Hello Thank you for your review!I am very happy that you have been able to conquer your fear of horses...:-)).Most often horses who bite and kick have been ill treated by humans. Sometimes some of them can be nasty but it is very rare.Horses usually have good characters. Wish you lots of fun for your married life. Warm regards Arunima More

I've been riding for almost two years, and that's my first beach ride. I went for a calm/relaxing ride on the sand then in the water. The place is magical, there was only me on the entire beach Ride with the guide. Strongly Recommended! ARUNIMA is your best guide and RIKO will be your photographer (Bring your SLR if you... More

First of all, having relied on Trip Advisor reviews for so many years to make my decisions, this is the first time I have ever felt I had to write a review. Having ridden for over 25 years, I had dreamed about riding on a beach all of my life. This was my perfect opportunity. My husband and I were... More

This really was a magical experience! Having ridden all my life I was intrigued at the idea of swimming with race horses. Having done 'barrel racing' in North Dakota on quarter horses to riding around the streets of New York this seemed a must to add to my bucket list! The stables was really Nicely run and the horses in... More

When we got to the stables we were greeted by Arunima and all of her lovely rescue dogs. The stables were very clean and all the horses friendly. I rode an ex racehorse, English thoroughbred called Polar Falcon who was amazing during the whole experience. When I got on him Arunima let me go around the sand paddock and get... More

On arrival the stables didnt look too promising, but when they led the horses out, what a lovely surprise. They were beautiful ex-race horses, big handsome thoroughbreds. Nothing was too much trouble, the owner Arunima even lent me her gloves. The beach we rode on was fantastic, long, sandy, deserted apart from us on our horses. We had some trotting,... More

If you wish to experience the 'Wild South' of Mauritius then this is truly a unique and refreshing way to do it.The rugged coastline is a total contrast to the North and the terrain changes along the ride, something which would easily be missed by car.........and then there's the Amazing Sunset. Arunima runs her stables at a high standard and... More

I'd read about this place on Tripadvisor and thought, i have to do this. I've ridden horses all my life, including having worked with race horses and was intrigued that i could also swim in the sea with the horse. I emailed Arunima prior to going to sort out the day and time. She prefers people to contact her before... More
