This tour was so much fun to do and the staff were so kind and helpful it’s everything, they made sure we were comfortable on the horse back and adjust to our liking. After the tour we got to hang out in their lobby and had hot chocolate to complete the tour. Highly recommend because it is beginners friendly 🙂

Ishestar was awesome. The experience was so pleasant, everyone was nice and accommodating, the horses were beautiful and the facility was very comfortable. Our leader, Patti, was super nice and took us at different speeds as comfortable.

Absolutely loved this excursion! I’ve had a horse in America for almost 20 years. These horses were a brand new experience for me. They are beautiful and have such unique gates. I went with my friend who was a beginner rider and she loved it as well. The staff are so nice and helpful and the horses are very responsive. The landscape is gorgeous and on a clear day you can see all the way to the mountains and the active volcano. 10/10 would do again!
