We had a wonderful ride through the countryside. It was very beautiful and we found ourselves riding in the rain at times. No worries, if you were bothered by the rain they had waterproof ponchos for you. Our guides, Oscar and Kendall, were terrific and...More

Guides take great care ensuring your safety and show you a wonderful time from pick up to drop off. Horses are well tempered and trained. They can gear the ride by terrain for ability level but altogether you need to be somewhat fit and balanced...More

Not sure they have. I got the recommendation by our hotel. It was really great. They have 2 tours a day if I'm not mistaken 9 and 1. But not sure about it. I would ask the hotel you are going to be staying at.

I don't believe so however you have to be able to lay forward over the horses neck on steep inclines. The ride is in the mountains and the terrain is steep.
