Great for novice riders and not too expensive. Book in advance if you want to do this. We had a few problems booking (language barrier which was our issue, not theirs). My teenager took a 1.5 hour beach/forest trek and after getting over her nerves...More
Nelly's Ranch is set in the woods, with an old school bus as the reception area - straight away it comes across as a quirky and friendly place. The horses were in fantastic condition and well cared for, which immediately put us at ease. I...More

There is no need to book in advance we just booked the day before, the best way is to go down in the morning and they will give you a list of times/days available and you pick which one suits you best, just book it early on your holiday to make sure to get in, they are very accommodating people and very nice their English is very basic, it's a trip you're daughter will never forget they go into the sea with ponies and have a photographer there with them, quite a big group goes together it is safe, better to be able to swim as well as some of them jump off ponies back into the water and climb back up, it was the highlight of my daughters holiday, the photos are amazing, enjoy your holiday.
