What a great way to spend 2 hrs. Even after 50+ years of riding and horse ownership I have never been bareback in the ocean on horse back. Lovely horses well looked after and healthy and a lovely house in Mia. Highly recommend it

There are not many places in the world you can ride bareback on a spectacular beach, but this is one of them. Great for all levels of rider. Lovely activity for the family, if a little pricey.
