This was by far the best riding experience I've ever had! My husband and I both have a fair amount of experience and we feel confident being alone with a horse. So if you wish, they will guide you out of town up into the national park and then let you ride without a guide! (This is the only place... More

My comrades and I are experienced equestrians, and weren't too sure about the horse rental thing. We had a blast, and the staff was so accommodating to our abilities and allowed us to ride out on our own. Nice horses for this type of facility, staff was great. Had so much fun, went for a 2nd day!

This business seemed to be run by young people who did the least amount of work possible. At 45$ for one hour one would expect pleasant customer service. The guide did not engage in conversation and every employee seemed disinterested and just going through the motions. This is not indicative of the people, young people, on the island. please look...

My husband and I were there last December, and decided to return in September. He LOVES riding horses and wanted to ride alone on the trails. It took very little time to sign up and get a horse--it was just after Labor Day. They started out in a group as the trail guide gave them important information and tips and... More

Wanted to try something different with the kids and this was it! The horses did as we told them to and were well mannered. It was a nice way to tour part of the island. The guide who came with us was very friendly and fun to talk to as she had grown up on the island. Beautiful horses.

One of the things that makes the Island so special is the fact that horses are the main mode of transportation. So it seems reasonable that the family takes a horsey ride. However, the horses at Cindy's Stable are not nice at all. Okay, some of them are. But the one I had on our tour was in a VERY... More

Well four of us went for a one hour fully guided tour with Cindy as our fantastic guide! One hour is truly enough time! This was an exceptional way to see the island away from the hustle and bustle of the street shops, bars and bicycles. We all enjoyed riding our own horses and saddle riding with sore butts. For...

Staff was friendly. We were able to go off on our own which is hard to find these days. Horses knew the ropes. Highly recommended.

We have gotten ourselves hooked on a Saddle Horse Ride every trip to the Island. The staff is always very helpful and courteous. Whether you are experienced or a novice, they can get you fixed up. If you haven't done it yet, try it once.

This was the highlight of my visit. The people working at the stable were very friendly and helpful. They matched me with a great horse and I had a quiet, peaceful ride through the woods. I highly recommend this riding stable.
