What people are saying about Sardinia

Simply gorgeous! The leader pays close attention to which horses he distributes to whom and how they feel the horses. We only rode step on this wonderful ride, but since we were the last, it was perfectly okay for us to keep a little distance and trot. The two leaders took our cell phones and took great pictures and videos. Thank you for the great experience!

With no horse riding experience we were able to enjoy the ride after a short introduction. Maria and Mario always attentive. The route, both through the pine forest and along the beach, spectacular with incredible views.

Really nice experience .... friendly and really nice attentive instructors ... I recommend it to everyone!

It's good except that we don't do Gallop or too much on the beach otherwise the view is great

Very beautiful ride through the forrest and along the beach!
