Metal at the pier by Clinton. Knowledgeable and funny man. He took the time to ensure the riders understood how to control the horses and how to ride for the beginners. Made sure to match horse and rider. We had a great time.

We did this as an excursion during our visit on a NCL ship. It was very well run and very nice. It was a great time and worth the 30-40min bus ride.
