Testimonials from happy riders

We took the Lava Tour and it was amazing!! The horses are beautiful and our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and very friendly. I felt incredibly comfortable on the tour and the group split into a fast and slow group to give more adventurous riders an opportunity to trot for the majority of the tour (as opposed to walk).

When I go back I will definitely be taking one of the longer tours with Ishestar!
