  • One of the most fun things to do on the island is to rent your own horse and carriage and take a spin. The horses are cared for and know the way. The stable gives a lot of support to drivers and horses for a successful journey. The route takes you by beautiful views and interesting parts of the island. We had a good horse and a wonderful experience!
  • Amazing! Chance and Minnie (the horses) were so good to us and they matched our personalities. Even though we were experienced riders we decided to get a guide since we didn't know the horses or the area. Alyssa (our guide) was amazing and definitely gave us a good time and quite some good laughs. Me and my brother highly recommend her!!!!! And we cant wait for the next time we can see Minnie and Chance
