We went riding here for a work function a few years ago, and as lovely as a beach ride was, the horses were unmanagable. I had been riding for a year or so prior and know how to ride (the only one in my group!).
We went for a ride on the beach and the ride leader took out a VERY skittish Friesian who spooked on the ride home, causing all the horses to break into a panicked gallop on the beach. We all managed to hold on but it was very unprofessional and scary for the beginners.
We also had to keep this horse away from that horse and all ride meters apart as some horses didnt like each other and would attack and kick, which defeated the purpose of a nice chilled group ride.
I havent been back since, although I'm sure the horses have been changed somewhat by now.
