    Beautiful, quiet adventure
    Did the sunset walk and loved it. The area is stunning and the horses are so well behaved. Neither my husband nor I had ridden before and there were zero issues. It was really different to everything else we did in Vanuatu because it was a quiet, gentle tour. Everything else had been go, go, go. Not a lot of room for conversation because we travelled in single file and that was actually brilliant. It was a lovely opportunity to reflect on the beauty of this country and have some down time. The charcuterie platter at the end was one of the best meals we had in Vanuatu. We ate it looking out at the bay. So intimate and romantic. Would highly recommend! Just remember to bring insect repellent.

    Amazing Vanuatu experience.
    My 10yo daughter and I did a 1hr horse ride last week with our guide Romy. We had the most amazing time riding through the rainforest and beach and really enjoyed the spectacular scenery. It was a highlight of our trip to Vanuatu and a not to be missed experience!

    Bucket list experience!
    The most magical bucket-list experience! We thought it would be wonderful but it still exceeded our expectations. Our guide Willie was wonderful. We were a family of 3 and my daughter was a nervous rider. Willie led her at first until she found her confidence to ride herself. The ride was stunning through lush green lands with butterflies flying around us, and Willie teaching us about the flora as we rode. Then we rode along the beach and in the water before finishing having a swim with the horses! It truly was amazing. Do not hesitate to book. You will not regret it. We will be back!!!! 🐴 ❤️

    Loved every second
    We visited as a day tour with P&O. Horses were cared for the ride was scenic. At the end of the trail ride you get the opportunity to ride into the water. The property has a gorgeous bay bordering it. The water was a perfect temperature. I would do this again 100 times if I had the chance.

    Amazing and unique experience, highly recommend
    Club Hippique was easily the highlight of my trip! Such a wonderful experience getting to swim with horses in the gorgeous blue water. They’re located on a pristine private beach, and you can ride horses in the white sand. My guide Emile was knowledgeable and accomodating, and tailored the ride to my experience levels. I had such a good time I rebooked for 2 days later! Thank you guys for having me, and see you next time.

    Amazing experience
    Booking was easy and they kept in contact leading up to our visit. We booked a private ride through the rainforest and then back along the beach, and ended it on a bare back ride into the water. It was the most amazing experience ever for our family. I highly recommend it

    Easy horse ride through the jungle.
    We were mostly stuck with some families with small children until the guide realised that we could actually ride and let us go ahead on our own along the beach, where we couldn't get lost. The staff is very friendly and knowledgable but you have to ask, they don't stop at every tree to tell you what it is. Swimming with the horses at the end is optional but quite an experience in itself if you've never done it before.

    Hippique Club Discovery Tour
    Our family group of 8 had the privilege of being first to take this new tour. It incorporates 1. The Blue Lagoon 2. Reef Zoology 3. 45 min Horse ride. We had a really wonderful day with our driver Jerry, who picked us up and dropped us back, at the cruise tender boats. The vehicle was a bit rough, but it all added to the appeal for us. It all went well and our driver Jerry drove well also. The Blue Lagoon was wonderful. A beautiful vegetated lagoon, with plenty of room for swimming, and tables and gazebos and ample places to jump and swing from into the beautiful salt water. Little black fish nibble at your toes near the edges, but do not hurt at all. My family all loved it there. We stayed for an hour and then moved on to the next stop, Reef Zoology, where they rehabilitate and protect various animals, including Turtles of all sizes, including the cutest little baby ones and also a variety of other animals. We all loved it there also, with informative staff as your guides and a chance to purchase some souvenirs if you wish. Then on to the Hippique Club for our horse ride, which everyone enjoyed immensely even though it rained, but getting wet was actually pleasant, as it took the excess tropical heat out of the air. As our group was largely inexperienced riders, thus we were happy with a gentle and safe ride. They do cater there for more experienced riders, from my previous 2019 experience, also. The tour includes an optional lunch, which we included and found to be fresh and tasty. The flies were a bit annoying, but that's flies for ya! We were then driven back to board the ship in good time, to not be stressed. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour for anyone and especially families. Our family group ranged in age from 7 to 62 and we all loved the tour equally. Shout-out to the horse I was allocated, "Salvation", Great name!

We booked a full day private ride paid $400 with Club Hippique and we were on a cruise ship that because of the cyclone did not go to the port for safety reasons. We wanted to support local operators and booked directly. We cancelled 48 hours before, when the cruise line informed us about the cyclone and that for safety reason they would not be going to the port . Initially Mrs Heidee Oberstar wanted 50% cancellation fee, then she stated 25% although it was a “force majeur” event and we should have been refunded everything. She strings us along and neither refunds anything nor does she send a cancellation invoice, although she claimed that she did.

First of all: the horses which I saw in the paddocks all looked healthy and were in good form. I did not see any injuries from saddles sitting wrong or any mistreatment.
The guides (1in the front and 1 in the rear) were friendly and helpful and volunteered information on the fauna seen on the ride.
The horses were perfectly chosen for the individual’s riding experience and the guide also took note of those who knew how to ride and ventured off with us cantering along the way.
The swim with the horse in the lagoon at the end was brilliant!
Had a lot of fun, enjoyed the scenery and the swim. Definitely worth the money!

Can't thank the staff enough, our morning ride catered for the beginners to the advanced rider. The horses were clearly well loved and looked after. The facilities are adequate and being able to take the horses swimming bareback was amazing. Huge thanks to Lucy for shouting our son a soda and a pack of chips, silly us had only only brought cfp as cash 🤔🙄

We had a great time at Club Hippique, I highly recommend this experience. Tom and Charlie were great guides and catered to our levels of riding experience. Swimming with the horses was a highlight! We did the 3 hour tour with lunch included and enjoyed a nice bbq lunch and swim at their beautiful beach. Thank you again to the club hippique team

The 4 of us had a fantastic time here at the park. We were all beginners on a holiday from Australia and were looked after immensely. A special thanks to WIlly Charlie and Tom for making us feel so safe and pointing out some interesting things along the way - especially the wild chillies!

My husband and I spent a wonderful afternoon riding at Club Hippique. The horses were in good condition, the gear a little rough but functional and the riding extraordinary. Our guide Roy was relaxed, informative and had a lovely sense of humour. Swimming the horses was an absolute highlight. I highly recommend this unique experience.

We had a lovely time doing the Rainforest Trail Ride. Guides were very professional and the horses are very well trained and therefore very safe. It was my 11-year-old boy first ride and he loved it. I'm a regular rider and equally loved it especially the swim in the lagoon bareback, such a special moment!
