We did a low season circular tour and it was great. Everything was well organised and our tour was so nice. We enjoyed the beach and also the horses!

I had nearly no riding experience and my friend only a little more when we decided to have a ride on the beach. No problem, Zia has horses for different levels of riding experience. We had a really wonderful time!
