Incredible Experience
AMAZING! This experience was wonderful. The company was very organized and professional. I loved that they split the group in two: one for the more advanced riders and the other for the beginners. Beginners could also join the faster group if they felt comfortable trying it out.

I was a beginner that tried the faster group and the experience was unbelievable! The horses were so beautiful and it was incredible to experience their different gaits. I felt very in tune with the horse in different parts and the scenery was beautiful.

If I had had time I would have booked another trip!

Highly recommend this experience :D
Brilliant - would do it again!
This horse riding tour was fantastic. We went on the 2 hours lava field walk. They break you off into experienced and beginner groups. Beginner group goes at a nice walking pace so you can take in the countryside views. They do break off again if you gain confidence and want to move a little quicker. We chose to stay on the nice saunter pace walk and thoroughly enjoyed it. By and large the horses follow each other but some of the naughtier ones are more fun to handle. The guides seem to know which ones those are and keep a good eye on you without following you everywhere you go. Guides are really friendly and take photos for you half way around which was a nice added bonus.

There is a coffee / tea / very light snack selection there for afterwards if you're so inclined.

Would definitely go back again and again, really enjoyed it.
