    The Ride
    I don’t know what to begin with. I’m an advanced rider, been riding for half of my life (10+years). Trail took 2hrs. We trotted and galloped, we also ride at the coast. The guide was extra friendly making sure the group is okay and explaining everything. Amazing place to make unforgettable memories! Horses were beautiful & clean, all ready as you come to the horse riding, btw. you could tell they are taken well care of. A m a z I n g !

I went to Ranch Istra Star last week with my girlfriend and we took a 3h trail. It was worth it, the trail is beautiful, it goes through forest, some meadows and quite long part along the coast. horses are good and calm, and we were satisfied because the groups are small so we had continue contact with the guide. as I am not a good rider and my girlfriend rides for few years i went slow and she had a possibility to go faster as well.
all in all very nice experience, the price is suitable and I would recommend it to the others :)

Thank you Maya for a great horse riding experience yesterday evening.
My husband and I are beginners and really appreciated Maya's patience and kind nature. Horses are very tame and well cared for.
In a two-hour session, at walking pace, we rode through countryside and onto a pretty secluded pebble beach at sunset - great setting.
Maya took some photos and sent these over to us, and even graciously helped us with getting back to our hotel. Thank you again, Emma & Phil

We went there with a couple of friends. We were all ( almost) beginners but Karin had so much patience with us. The horses are in good shape, very friendly, well trained. The price is also ok. So , give it a try. You will love it ♡

Me and my boyfriend decided to take an hour riding tour. It was quite nice. We don't usually ride so it was a relieve to see that the hoarses were as calm as the website of the Star Ranch claimed to be. Our guide, Karen, was very nice and knowledgeable and answered bunch of our question. I would recomend long sleaves and wearing a helmet, casue along the way there is a lot of low trees and branches. Also, if you're begginer, take the short, 1hour, ride, because otherwise you won't be able to sit next day :D but it's really great couple-family activity, very resaonably priced and quite enjoyable.

We had a very fun time on our 3 hour ride with Ranch Istra Star. We are all experienced riders and were paired up with appropriate horses. Our ride took us through narrow wooded paths, around open fields and right to the spectacular sea. Communication and scheduling with the Ranch was excellent. The price was reasonable. FYI, I think they only accept cash.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the ranch. Maya and Mena (?) picked us up from where we were staying. They were very friendly, knowledgeable, and patient with all of us. We are a family of 5 (kids ages are 13, 10, 9), who are all beginners. The hour long ride was perfect for us. We learned a lot and had lots of fun. The vineyards were beautiful. The peaceful environment was relaxing. I wish we were staying in the area longer to be able to do it again. The price is reasonable, and it was worth every penny. I definitely recommend booking a ride with them.

This is a wonderful ranch. The horses are healthy and well-kept, which is always my main concern when going riding. They were also well-trained and calm, so suitable for even less experiences riders. Maja is really friendly and helpful, and she took everyone’s experience into consideration when planning the ride. She also keeps the trail groups small, and the views on the trail are gorgeous. I definitely recommend Istra Star, and would go again myself!

First time I had ridden since having spinal surgery 20 years ago. Had read good reviews about this place so thought would give it a go. Was a small but friendly place. Maya was lovely. The horses were well behaved and it was just ideal for what I wanted at this time. The ride out in the beautiful country side was just so relaxing.
