How to get here?

You can drive or take the bus that stops 1 km away or you can choose a pick-up from hotels or hostels.

Good things to keep in mind around horses:

Speak and move calmly in the presence of horses. It is good to talk to the horse to let him get used to you and your voice.

Let the horse know where you are. It is better to approach the horse from the side then walking directly to the front or back. It’s good to put your hand on the back of the horse when moving around it.

Remember, yelling and shouting can stress or frightened the horse. When horses get afraid they might want to run away.  

After horse riding thank your horse for the trip, pet it and be friendly.
