based on 1 reviews

This was a relaxing and enjoyable excursion. Riding peacefully through the lush landscape was nice, then we got to stop at a waterfall and play in the water for a bit before we rode back. Horses are well trained so good for first time riders. Guide was very nice but I can’t remember the name. He was the one for 4/26 at 8 am.
