My husband booked this trip as a surprise for me. I am a horse owner and have rode for about 6 years but have never ridden on a beach. I was hesitant, just being aware of cultural differences in horse care that may bother me. But, we arrived for 4 healthy looking horses and a great guide, Fausto. It was just us and another couple and they had little riding experience. Fausto is superb and has worked for this company for over 20 years. He had seen all 4 of horses on our trip, born and raised, and you could see his love and the mutual respect between he and the horses. He was great at tailoring to the riders, letting us run some on the beach, as well as holding our horses back so the more inexperienced riders could do the same without the horses taking over, as one should. You get some beach riding, as well as some riding through some side streets and such. Fausto is great at taking some photos and letting you have some freedom in your ride. The relationship between him and the horses is evident, as he can command them from his horse and they will listen, even when you are the rider. Just book it!
