nothing like riding a horse on the beach. cab was sent for us, the owner "Sunfire" and his sons run the place. they are very friendly and make you feel welcome. very fun and pleasant ride. horses basically follow each other but if you know how to ride then you can move about. definitely never rode a horse in water before so that was great.
This was a great tour. However I left out a star because Viator did not inform me to bring a towel to sit on under the saddle so I was forced to purchase one from the nearby souvenir shop even though I didnt want to spend the extra money. I could easily have brought my own towel.
My husband and I enjoyed the horseback riding tour. The guide was very friendly and informative. The ride in the beach was very brief (less than 5 minutes), I thought it would have been a little longer but we were told the water was a little rough (not really) which could be why it was so short. However, I did not give this more than 3 stars because this tour was supposed to be 3.5 hours. We were picked up and dropped off in under 2.5 hours. We were supposed to have been given an opportunity to hang out at the beach and given a bottle of water but were not. When we came out of the water, we were told our taxi to take us back to St. John's would be arriving in less than 5 minutes. I think this is because that driver had another job and wouldn't be available to pick us up later. In that case, they should have arranged to have a different driver drive us back to town. We were hoping to be able to enjoy the beautiful beach there before heading back to town.
Lots of fun but too big of a group (20-25 people) and not split up between experienced riders and beginners thus it was very slow and not too much of a riding experience. Transport from pick up location to Fort James was good but no one showed up to drive us back. I enjoyed it a lot overall though
