  • We did the Full Moon hike with a 5 year old and had a good time. The staff was very friendly and enthusiastic about sharing the history of that area of the island. The path wasn't too challenging and we got good views of the bays. A pleasant evening for a reasonable price. The owners are working on adding more features and events and it seems like a promising project. They seem to take great care of the horses and it would be a great place for a beach ride.
  • We did a 1 hour ride at 8:30 a.m. We took the horses around the 30 acre park, up and down steep hills, as the tour guide talked about the park and the island. You could tell that he loved his job and the horses. Very relaxing and amazing views of the island and ocean. We finished our ride with horses going for a swim in the ocean.
  • I just loved this place. All the staff were so pleasant and kind. Petra takes great picture's. Darrell was a great guide riding the horse's. I would recommend that everyone experience this! It was on my bucket list and was fulfilled!
  • I liked this excursion in this awesome park.The ride was about an hour through some rocky trails both up and down hill. Lots of views and time for photos. The best part was taking the horses into the water for a swim, and the horses actually swam with us still in the saddle. I would do this excursion again no question! ****
