I went with my 2 daughters and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The guides were really friendly and very reassuring, especially when we entered the sea. The horses were gentle and placid.Would recommend it to anyone. Thank you a fab time!

My family enjoyed every second of our Beach Horses experience. Our guides/ trainers were very knowledgeable and helpful. We wished the ride would last all day. It was so much fun! I can't wait to ride with Beach Horses again!

Had a wonderful time. Each horse and rider had a individual handler. Felt it was very well organized and safe for young children/beginner riders :)

I believe you can ride with your 3 year old and the others may be able to ride on their own. But, each horse has its own trainer with them at all times.
