This was an experience of a lifetime. The guides were personable, fun and a pleasure to be around. We had experienced heavy thunderstorms the day we were supposed to do this and they called to rebook us the next. Great experience overall.

We had such a fun time! The horses are exuberant yet gentle. Riding in the water is unlike any other horseback experience.

This is a bucket list item! The trainers were very attentive and made sure we were comfortable with everything. Absolutely loved it and it was one of the highlights of our trip! Made for a great adventure on our girls trip.

I went with my 2 daughters and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The guides were really friendly and very reassuring, especially when we entered the sea. The horses were gentle and placid.Would recommend it to anyone. Thank you a fab time!
