My boyfriend and I were on a Royal Caribbean cruise and they cancelled the horseback ride and ocean bareback for some reason. We found Fidel Da Breo on our own. I loved him.. He was personable and the horses we rode, Stone was only 5 and Thorn, 10, which is YOUNG for horses, because I believe they live to be over 45 oftentimes.
This was one of many, many rides I have taken. I can say this was truly the high light of a fabulous trip overall.. We both loved it. Our trip was about 2 hours with Fidel as our guide. We went on some rough tourain and then to the ocean. We got some super tips on riding better and then when we reached the destination we changed to the bareback horses and they took us in the ocean and swam! It was amazing. Hard to hold on but we managed. He keeps his horses very healthy and cares for them. He has been doing this for many years , if not most of his life. His horses seem happy, healthy and loved. I think he sometimes breaks the horses himself and shoes them as well. It takes a whole year to get a horse to be as gentle as his are. I can rave about this place. If I lived there I would be tempted to ride weekly. Hooray for Holiday Riding Stables. We were so pleased! THANK YOU FIDEL!!!!!!!!!!
