    We recommend. We were contacted by Irene before the ride and asked about our riding skills. When we arrived at the farm, we were warmly welcomed and we got to know each other briefly in a relaxed atmosphere. Then the horses were assigned according to our ability and off we went towards the mountains. Since we were a group of beginners, we only rode at a walk and were accompanied on foot. Halfway through we took a break. From there we had a great view. The horses were allowed to graze and we were provided with drinks and apples. We also learned something about the area and its special features. Then we went back to the courtyard, where we sat together in a relaxed atmosphere. In general, we really liked the fact that everyone was dealt with individually and that there was no feeling of mass processing. Thank you for the nice day!

    They are great! Highly recommend! I had a tech emergency and had to delay my time by a couple of hours and they were very accommodating and helped me find a better place to stay. They are great with the horses, offer other great opportunities to ride them and see more of the sites.
