Excellent yard, well maintained, horses well cared for. Thoroughly enjoyed a one hour ride in the Maltese sunshine. My husband was very well looked after as a novice rider, sadly rising trot remains elusive for him! Lovely views but the rocky terrain allows short bursts of speed only. All in all, highly recommended

Emailed Mario before my holiday to arrange a sunset ride 30 Euros for 90mins, 2 euros each for pick up from hotel. The public bus does stop pretty close to the stables. I was disappointed that they dont do different rides for experienced riders and I had to join the ride with novice riders. Mario gave me a fisty horse called Whisky to keep me entertained and let me go at the front of the ride. Whisky was a handful and I enjoyed my ride on him - he was full of cheeky fun. My mum who is a complete novice, came along and was kept safe on a lead rein. She rode Pedro and another lady rode Storm. Storm was lovely. The other horses behaved perfectly. The terrain is horrid and rocky but there were a couple of places for a canter. The views are stunning. The horses are very well cared for, perfect weight, well fitting tack, good feet and after the ride Mario put rugs on them and gave them their tea.

Myself and two others did the sunset ride last week (march 2013)
Collected from our hotel - we arrived and thought the worse when we couldn't see a horse!
However then it changed approx 15 horses all ready to go - in perfect condition - very well looked after!!
Mario - wow those horses listen to his every word! Horse control at its best!!
The views on the ride - simply breath taking!
€30 - hour and half ride - for me best bit of my holiday!

Lovely couple - stunning horses !!
Try it / all levels of riding!!
Will b back in summer!!

We really enjoyed our time with Mario and his wonderful horses. Everything was as advertised and the price was quite reasonable. We hope to return and ride again. We were especially grateful that he accommodated our smallest child by letting him ride with his Mom while the horse was led by Mario. The scenery was beautiful and it was obvious that the animals are well cared for. This was the highlight of the trip for our girls.
