We left for a early morning ride, had a great time and all the horses were in good condition and happy, had a fun time on the beach, quiet and pleasurable, for those who cannot ride it is still a good day, they have the horses to suit from beginners to experance riders.

Looked very nice...we didn't stay there but walked through it to reach the Lestari restaurant. The hotel looked like it would be the place to stay if you liked riding...but we were told that it would be closing soon (June 2012????)

We are back here now for third time. The first time, last year we only booked à lesson and beach tour. The beach tour was absolutely amazing, even though the way to the beach was ehm, exciting, due to traffic on the road and narrow passages due to those stupid villa's that are sprouting in Bali everywhere and destructing the...

Viewed the stables and 'horses' the day prior to my ride. As a very experienced rider, was assured I would have a suitable horse to suit my experience. The brochure states that on the 2 hour ride, you will enjoy the trees and shadows along the river, see rice paddies etc., It also implies that the 'centre' is a more... More

The horses here are certainly very well looked after. The beach ride was brilliant a huge storm came in and we were soaked. Beware if you are not an experienced riders that those horses take off on the way back on the beach if you are not in control.

The stables and horses are as I would expect in a good European operation, clean, well schooled and clearly very well cared for. I did 4 beach... More

This was a must for me, after 7 years I finally returned to the sadle. My horse was beautiful and well schooled, the guide was amazing. We rode from the Umalas down the beach to Legian. It's nice to ride a horse that you feel wants to be there rather than a have to. As soon as we hit the... More

The brochure is out of date, they no longer take the horses on the beach, we were told that it was 5 years since hores rides had been taken on the beach. Also be aware that there is a maximum weight limit of 86 kgs, this is not stated in their brochure and we did not find this out until... More

Pulling up into the entrance to the front office, none of us expected the incredibly clean and modern state of the stables that we saw as soon as we signed the release forms. Right from the very beginning, we were impressed by the professionalism demonstrated by the staff. They had offered a free transportation service there and back that picked... More
