Agree with all the reviews about the view. We are beginners. We got two old horses that would rather stop and eat than ride. My saddle was patched with duct tape. Granted we don't really know what we are doing but the riding part was...More

We enjoyed riding at Ranch Opunohu Valley, the only horse stable on Moorea. They pick up at hotels and we got a free ATV ride to the Ranch and back. Their horses are top notch, in fact very frisky, so if you're a beginner, insist...More
