Had a great time. Horses were well trained. Had a first time rider, horse named Party Boy just plodded along no wanting to run barely even trotted. Just perfect for first timer. Carlos was a great guide. Fun was had all around.

5 of us went and had a great time. One of the girls with us is afraid of horses but they are all very gentle. The guide was nice as well. The natural pool we rode to was fun as well.
