We took the romantic moonlight tour and it was simply amazing. We got picked up around 5 by Eddie, our chauffeur, guide, host and basically everything else. It was a drive of about an hour and we picked up 5 others along the way(pick up was free for us). We recommend asking to be picked up because the drive there... More

We had an amazing morning. We were met at our ship by Gregory and Eddie. They were personable with great senses of humor. We were driven with others from our group to the stables. Our family as well as a few others were beginners and the staff was outstanding at getting us comfortable with our houses and instructing us. It... More

Having ridden abroad before, the first thing that my family and I am concerned about is animal welfare. Straight away, you could see that the animals were exceptionally well looked after. Wonderful coats, a healthy look with a very good body weight and well shod. A credit to all involved. After that, is the experience of the ride. For any... More

We had a wonderful morning met by our guide for the day Eddie. He was superb! He was so patient with my very nervous son and he gave my daughter a day to remember fulfilling her wish of a horse trek in the hills. Eddie and the other staff were sinking and helpful even with an old girl like me... More
