Great experience, lovely horses and lovely people. They even take photos for you on your camera. We got the beach and bathe package, really good as you can enter the hot springs at any time, no booking required.

These rides are most suitable for first time riders only. Only short bursts of trotting, which the horses were very unwilling to do. Reached the beach after 50 or so minutes of single track alongside a road. Then walked up the beach and back -...More

I think there may be an age limit. My son was 6.5 yrs old when he did it. Best to call them and check.
