Horseback riding

We had 6 adults and 1 child horseback riding. I was very nervous and they were very accommodating. The horses were gentle and listened. I would come back again.

We booked the "sunset ride" which turned out to be "the highway to hell" ride. We started out crossing a busy highway- motorcycles, tour buses, horns honking, dogs barking... we continued on the highway for what seemed like forever. We are all somewhat experienced and were really uncomfortable. Nowhere to get off the highway. It was wet, horses slipping, buses... More

My kids (ages 6-8) aren't very experienced riders but the guides were very nice and accommodating, and the horses were gentle. We rode down the side of the main street, thru a local area and down the beach -- which was gorgeous. It was very fun for all of us and we'd do it again.

We went out with Sharkey and Kayla which were both real nice. Rode down the side of the main street, through the local area to the beach. We went thru shallow water and back to the stables. It was a long ride of 2 hours which is plenty if you are not an regular horse rider. The cost was fair... More

I went for a solo ride with Shirkie, who was funny and entertaining. He knew a lot about the area, having lived their for most of his life, and was able to provide commentary for the whole ride. I rode El Presidente (no joke) who was a real cutie and very easy. I have been riding since I was 12... More

After reading several reviews of the tour guide being intoxicated during the tour, I was very nervous for this excursion. The pickup was very difficult to find as our driver was sitting on the side of the road with the Dixon Tours sign behind another sign. I was a bit nervous about getting in his car, as it was an...

We booked this tour through Victor Bodden tours. We were very pleased with the horses and the ride that took us on a beach ride for part of the time. Horses were very relaxed and easy going.

While in Roatan, I took a horseback ride with Shirkie, the owner at El Rancho Barrio Dorcas. What a treat! The horse he had me ride was gentle and responsive. Not barn sour at all. Shirkie was very knowledgeable about horseback riding and Roatan in general. I was treated to a private ride to the beach, something I've been waiting... More
