Beautiful location, but an extremely disappointing ride. Before we even left, the member of staff leading the group tried to ride a horse who seemed like it hadn't yet been properly broken in. The staff kept referring to this horse as 'satan' and whipped it...More

We went for a 1 hour ride and it was so peaceful with gorgeous views. We rode through the vineyards and had the owners little sausage dog run along beside us the whole way. Definitely topped off our weekend

Great 2-hour ride through some really beautiful countryside. Certainly a different view of the backcountry & vineyards. My comment to our lovely guide, Nevin, was "what an office". As an very regular rider, Nevin was happy to send me off to experience my horse at...More
