In general, we have enjoyed our time at Daufuskie Island. We have been here for a week with our 4 year old, 7 month old and their grandparents. The facilities have been great and we have found plenty to do with our 4 year old. At the beginning of the week, she was very excited to go horseback riding. So,we called and set up an appointment for Friday morning at 9. As you can imagine,getting all of us out of the house to the facility by 9 was not easy but we made it. Unfortunately,noone was at the equestrian center to meet us. Jodi, who had made our appointment for us, finally showed up at 9:45 with no explanation, and no apology at all. By that time, our daughter had had time to get a little nervous because this was her first time on a horse. Jodi sent an 11 year old rider who was not actually an employee to get the pony for our daughter and lead her around. As our daughter started to get more upset and we were trying to calm her down, Jodi abruptly said that it was stressing out the horse and ended the ride. Now our daughter who was very excited all week to ride horses has not interest in trying again. I am understanding of people being late and having unforseen circumstances but no apology and a complete disregard and understanding for a small child is unacceptable.
