This is my first experience of horse riding. Every member of the team is so friendly in providing instructions and giving tips. I was a bit nervous in the beginning. My horse is very gentle, perfect for first time rider. The team helped each group taking photos next to the red lava. The girl named Lucy stayed with me riding through the path. I had great time and strongly recommend this activity!

This is an amazing experience riding the horses through stunning countryside. We had such a wonderful afternoon. The organisers were so friendly and very helpful. Highly recommend this activity.
