    Well, what can I say except that the ride surpassed all my expectations? I enjoyed every single minute of it. Our guide was simply excellent, brimming with knowledge and always making the journey engaging for everyone. The horses were truly fantastic. Being a beginner, I wasn't sure what to expect, but my horse immediately put me at ease. She knew exactly what to do, and I felt completely safe throughout. I'd enthusiastically recommend this experience to anyone seeking something truly special.

    It was beautiful, especially during sunset! You don’t even need to be an experienced horse rider. The landscape was also amazing and so are the wild animals!
