Beautiful ride, friendly horses

My husband and I been to many places, but this one was mind blowing. I always wanted to go horse back riding and it was such a great experience. Rocky was a great host, knowledgeable, and went above and beyond. He directed us while on foot and took amazing pictures and videos of us. We almost got discouraged by reading some of the reviews, and I glad we didn’t because the experience couldn’t of been better. Please check it out, you won’t be disappointed. Thanks Rocky.

Not so good

To begin with, we did pay a fair price and part of the cost was to be picked up and dropped off back-and-forth from my resort to the ranch. The car that picked us up looked like it had been in at least three wrecks, I get in the backseat and went to put the window up because it was incredibly windy out and I had just freshened up and done my hair etc. The driver told me the windows didn’t work. Which led me to believe the air conditioner didn’t work either. The car rambled around, the brakes squealed and also sounded like the rotors were bad. Then we arrive at the ranch that honestly looked a little scary. It was rather rundown and unkept, there were broken down vehicles all over the place kind of look like a junkyard. The horses looked OK. Then they led us out it seems like in the middle of nowhere the terrain was really rough although you can’t do anything about that. Part of our experience was to see animals and such in their natural habitat well we didn’t see anything. Then we were supposed to go to a scenic part of the beach and ride the horse. Well what really happened is they took us to a little strip kind of in a little valley, and there was a litter all over the sand. Then my horse decided to sit down and roll over. thankfully I was able to get out of the stirrups in the saddle without her rolling over my leg. Not really what I had in mind for this excursion. I did get back safe and sound, I was a little rattled by that experience with the horse Wouldn’t recommend it.
