Even if you don't have any experience, those horses are easier to drive than a car! The view and the history of the territory was great as well. Try it and you won't regret it!

So great. Second time on a horse, so I was a little worried but... Beautiful terrain. Responsive, manageable horses. Well staffed (1 staff for every two riders). Nice history lesson. Flexible with booking. New respect for four-legged friends.
