Beautiful well cared for horses. Great surroundings. Knowledgeable staff who love the animals. Really enjoyed the experience. I'm an experienced rider but the rides are tailored to suit all levels of experience. Thoroughly recommended.

Not much to say but wow. I didn't ride on the horses but friends did and it was such an amazing sight seeing these fabulously huge horses galloping along the beach. I'm told it was money very well spent . And well supervised .

Love this absolutely incredible place. Gorgeous horses, friendly and knowledgeable staff, great campsite. Had the best time and would highly recommend. Campsite is quite new but such a lovely setting next to a stream and with stunning views.

i think the farm ride would be better for your husband. The longer rides on the beach are for the more experienced. I can recommend the farm rides though, having been on one myself.
