Had a wonderful private beach tour led by Nyna. I had a great horse that was responsive and well mannered. The scenery was beautiful and I thoroughly enjoyed my time. Highly recommend and look forward to going back next time in the area.

We visited Pony Land yesterday and had a great time. I just wanted to thank Kathy for being so wonderful. Here is a little photo of our daughter on Dapple. Despite her serious demeanor, she had a really good time! We will definitely be back.

The weight limit is 250 lbs. I think I remember the guide saying the minimum weight is 90 lbs. They have a large staff working at the ranch. I recommend calling and asking for specific details.
