    Went riding with my husband on Saturday for two hours. The horses were all well taken care of and also really friendly!. Big example for other stables in other countries where I have been. It was perfect.

    Four of us were riding and had great fun. It was just a pity, that despite asking it was not possible to ride a short distance a little faster. We still had great fun.

    During this week I had one 2 hours trip with excellent guides. We were divided into groups for those who wanted to gallop and for those who wanted to take it a bit easier. The trips are recommended for everybody – no matter skills or experience.. I noticed horses that were very well taken care of, clean and healthy!

    Lynn

    We had a wonderful time, staff was great and knowledge, the horses were wonderful; we had a young friend with us who had never ever met a horse (we were concerned he would be afraid) he was matched with the perfect pony, even had a little trot at the end of the ride. My husband has minimal riding experience, he’s a big man and has only ridden Western, the staff did a great job making him comfortable. I had a great time and enjoyed a few gallops.
    I appreciated the fact that all the horses were shod, looked in good body condition dispute the hot and humid climate, and every horse in the barn we petted was in a clean stall and had clean water and hay.

    We came here for a treat for my 25th birthday and had a lovely time. The girls were super friendly and chatty and were a pleasure to be with and the horses are well looked after. My boyfriend had a little trouble with his horse to begin with as we were both beginners but after a bit of guidance from staff we were well on the way. The trip does cater for all abilities, those new to horse riding remain at a steady walk whilst at points those with more experience are able to go ahead and go at a faster pace. It looked great fun for them, I only wish we had more experience so we were able to join!

    Personally, I would have liked to have the opportunity to build a relationship with my horse before the ride. You basically arrived there and sat right on the horse. The allocation of the horses was very good though. Transfer worked well. Recommended!

    This is an excellent way to see Gran Canaria. My daughter, an experienced rider and owner and my husband a complete novice had a fantastic hack together. The horses are well cared for and they match you to the horse you need. Fantastic. We will be back again. Thanks

    Great range of horses and the staff clearly know what they’re doing. I’ve ridden before; my daughter hadn’t – we both loved it.

    The view during the ride is incredible. They offer a pick-up service from the hotel and back wich is included in the price. If you like horses, I recommend this place.

    It was excellent. The ride was really cool and the group was well run. You could discover another side of Gran Canaria, admire the beautiful view and the mountain landscape. I had almost no experience with riding, but I felt very comfortable and everything was explained very well. It was an eventful afternoon and I look back at it with a lot of pleasure.

    Noemi

    It was a really great experience! I would do it again immediately. There a lot of horses in the stable. The staff knows how to handle riding beginners. We had a problem at the beginning, which delayed the start of the tour by one hour. Still, the two hours we paid for were maintained. I think that’s great. Continue like this.

    Melli

    My boyfriend and I were really excited. We were able to get to know the island from a different perspective with this ride. It was a lot of fun. The two guides were great, the horses totally relaxed. Absolutely recommendable even without any riding experience . We have already made many excursions on Gran Canaria (on land, on water etc.). But this trip was a very special one. Deserved 5 stars!

    The experience was phenomenal; the horses were very well trained. The route was very scenic as well as the breathtaking view of the mountains of Maspalomas. The guide was friendly and competent. I would recommend this to anyone.

    We had a great time and felt like in the Wild West as we rode through the mountains. A great morning. Definitely recommendable.

    Martin

    The staff was very friendly and helpful, we felt well cared for from the beginning. After a short briefing, we went through the mountains on relatively stony paths. The horses are very well trained and used to cross this ground. We both never sat on a horse before, it was a great experience!

    I booked this trip due to the good reviews. That was a mistake. It was a very stressful and frustrating trip for us. We are beginners and were panicking on the horses. My husband’s horse threw itself on the ground and rolled over. My horse got constantly bitten by the other horses and wanted to run away in panic. I had to call for help. The horses were not allowed to close because they did not like each other. My husband was almost thrown down by the horse because he got the “bad boy”. The ground was a disaster, narrow, rocky paths full of rocks and stones. The horses were slipping on the gravel. One got a huge stone in its hooves and limped. For humans and animals a catastrophe. We were exhausted and are afraid to ride for all eternity. Pity about the money. The absolute horror trip!!

    A nice ride in a beautiful landscape. I can recommend the stable.

    Kathrin

    It was a great experience with very good horses and a great guide. The view was breathtaking, and as a horse lover, I found it particularly nice that we were allowed to care for the horses a little even after the ride. You can tell that the horses are in very good hands and that they lovingly look after them at the stable. They looked very calm, friendly and balanced. In addition, it was a highlight that they allowed experienced riders to gallop in several places. A nice resting area with the possibility to drinks & snacks was also available at the stable. All together contributed to an extraordinary riding experience, which I can totally recommend.

    We enjoyed the excursion. The tack of the horses was a little outdated. But overall it was a nice experience. It was very suitable for a non-experienced rider.

    We really enjoyed the trip. The people from the horse farm were very nice and friendly. Even as a beginner on a horse we felt very well prepared. We are already planning our next stay. If everything fits, we will definitely book again.

    The horse riding was set among stunning scenery near the mountains. I’d never been on a horse before so was a bit apprehensive but the horse chosen for me was fantastic and easy to ride. The ride lasted 2 hours but was so enjoyable I could easily have done it all day!
