    The ride was fantastically beautiful, fabulous nature and kind horses. However, mine that I galloped on felt quite tired and did not really have the strength. But the sand is very deep and it is difficult for the horses. The wine tasting was a bottle of wine, some cheese and salami. Then the owners pulled over and left ourselves. which felt a little strange, but at the same time it was quite cozy. Magical nature experience
