Really scenic ride through a major lava field - a really unique, picturesque sight indeed. There is some flora and fauna to enjoy - even saw an arctic fox! The staff are very professional and friendly. their passion for riding is conveyed with ease - they know their horses intimately and in detail, meaning they can match the horse to rider perfectly.

It was a great adventure. Horses were friendly and calm, our guide was very experienced. Even though I had no previous experience of riding a horse, I felt safe and well taken care of :)

This was a great beginner ride and the horses were so sweet. Everything was really clean and the horses looked well cared for and not over worked. The provided warm clothing was a great benefit because I couldn't have packed enough clothes to be that warm!

Great experience, our group was large so early on in the ride they split the group into medium level and beginner riders. We got to choose which level and group we wanted to go with.

Was an amazing experience. Many ranches were closed for the season for horseback riding. Was lucky to have this one. Would definitely recommend to everyone.
