Very nice trip, recommend it very much. The owners are very nice, the ride is cool, the horses are great. They takes pictures for you for free and you make a stop eating fruit near a voluntary house. MUST GO!!

Horse riding with Explore Samara was a terrific trip: uphill, great view and a gallop on the beautiful beach.
