Perfect for 1 person who has never tried a horse before

Very good guide who comes to help us in the event of a problem Too bad there was no break between because the knees took a knock asleep and at the end downhill risk of injury The ride plus the gallops were great , we are taught to steer the horse

Wunderschön! Es war ein wunderschöner Ausritt direkt am Strand und auf dem Rückweg durch einen traumhaften Wald. Für uns als Anfänger war der 3-stündige Ausritt jedoch zu lang. Ich würde den 1-stündigen Ausritt für unerfahrene Reiter empfehlen, da durch die ungewohnte Haltung recht schnell alles zu schmerzen beginnt. 1 Stern Abzug dafür, dass unser Guide zwar ein paar Sätze Deutsch aber kein Englisch gesprochen hat, sodass die Verständigung schwer fiel. Teilweise hatten wir das Gefühl, dass er etwas genervt war, mit absoluten Anfängern unterwegs zu sein, die die Pferde natürlich nicht perfekt unter Kontrolle halten können.
