  • Follower of the walks and horse rides I wanted to introduce this to my companion. 1st climb on a horse for him and what a disappointment! We're clearly taking us for pigeons! We had booked a ride of 2 hours by sea. At the beginning made us to ride on our horse and no explanation. NOTHING. Absolutely not friendly. Plaintext: walk out of range for 30 min. A 15 min break and wait for nothing while the young monitor did his (no other words) keke leg... well 100 metres on the beach and leave the beach again. Note: the Gallop is proposed but attention we told that if desired before doing a sheet is sign (magic sheet that appears during the ballad and especially not hospitality) as the ranch especially doesn't want problems it's dangerous etc. Said so delicate. A ballad so USELESS without a single moment of trot, not at all as desired, horses in a deplorable state, and a "monitor" anything but professional. A nice tourist. I leave the ball in the stomach and disappointed of having paid them such a ballad. ABSOLUTELY STAY AWAY AND A REAL SHAME FOR A RANCH!

  • Circuit disappointing, staff not friendly and not professional, not secure. We opted for a walk of "2 hours on the sea". We went to more than 30 people with 3 companions. Coaches do not arise, are dressed in simple short baths or brassiere micro shorts and do not bomb (good example...). At the time of taking possession of the horse person won't tell us what it is, no instruction is given, no briefing knowing that many people in this group are never mounted on horseback (hyper reassuring...). The ride happens mainly on paths of Earth on which, at + 30 horses, there is not much else except a thick white dust (it's better to go with a mask!). After 40 minutes the steps, we get not far from the seaside, but in no case on the beach, it is seen only in the distance. We been down horse a break. After 15 minutes where everyone is standing next to his horse to look in the whites of the eyes, asked if some want to gallop. We are told that this is very strongly discouraged anyone not having to mini a galloping 3-4 level and that if it falls during a gallop, we manage, we won't come to pick us up and then we are asked to sign a waiver of liability. Dump, is a single sheet, that one of the attendant turned to a group of 30 people: still 10 minutes to wait he did the trick. (Why this discharge is not signed at the time of the registration/payment arriving at the ranch?) Then, those who wanted to gallop leave while others still need to wait next to the horse that the group come back: another 15 minutes! Short in the end, on a 2 hour ride we spent more than 40 minutes standing next to the horse to do nothing. Overall coaches are a little chatting, get angry for no reason on the tourists as on the horses and do not bring any advice! In short, a nice tourist, don't go!

  • A real factory of the walks of 30 see 40 ponies for 2 or 3 monitors which is frankly not enough. A gallop race not suited to certain levels. We're leaving in flocks and not online. Injured horses treated with plastic film bandage would have been more suitable or even an abscess where passes the strap on the pony who go still for a ride. Children's little ones to have attributes of demi-poney or even large ponies.

  • Minimalist pony, no supervision after paying ride. Owners and employees prefer to sit home rather than make themselves available to customers and/or children person to choose the pony we do everything either even without guidance on the nature of animals, or the direction of the course... Forced to get behind the ponies in for yourself them with the risks that this entails. We don't feel any love of animals or the desire to share a passion. Excessive rate for the little investment, equipment... Etc (€ 15 for an hour)

  • So I spent a very good time that I returned. The ranch is very aptly named, it reminded me of the ranch in the US. Very nice Ballad of 18 h in an idyllic setting. Staff and friendly horses despite several negative reviews.

  • Staff not very friendly and not very welcoming. You are being charged and you're doing alone whether to choose the pony away... no explanation and a little course for 30 min walk (we must therefore do the same around 7 or 8 times).

  • We found the nice ride, for the first time it is ideal. The home found us it cold, but people are available and accessible. During the exit we were able to learn much more about the horses as well as their way of life on the ranch.
