    about provider
    A group of 5 of us embarked on a week-long riding holiday with Nobi and his horses (and even his camels!). His horses were in excellent condition, fit, and a delight to ride, especially for experienced riders like us. Throughout the week, I had the pleasure of partnering with 5 different horses, each of which I loved for their enthusiasm, responsiveness, good manners, and beauty. We also had the opportunity to see the sand paddocks where the horses live 24/7, enjoying access to shade, water, and feed at all times, unlike many local horses that are stabled. I wholeheartedly recommend Nobi and his operation, a definite 5-star experience!

    Nobi's stables are absolutely fantastic, and the horses receive exceptional care. As a locally owned family business, it stands out as the best in the area. The guides are incredibly friendly and skilled with the horses. Each horse is thoughtfully matched with its rider, and there's a diverse selection of rides to choose from. I highly recommend this stable to anyone looking for a memorable riding experience.
