    Was amazing to swim with the horses. Pictures taken of you cost $60 and is a ripoff. The amateur photographer does basic editing by adjusting light level and calls them professional edits. Totally unreasonable cash grab. Otherwise our guide Eddy was amazing and we were lucky enough to go on a ride with only 2 people in our group and Eddy.

    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.
