    Hello ladies,

    Myself and some of my family and friends are big into horse riding, I used to own and work with them for a few years when I left school doing lots of competing and thought it would be great if I could find somewhere close by to go riding across the beach or something, any ideas ?

        When I was in cancun we did this. We booked it through our funjet rep ($65). They took us in a bus to where we rode. it might have been a 30 minute ride. It was cool to get to see more of cancun than the hotel zone.

        Take water! We didn't & it was really rough. They sold bottles eventually, but I didn't have cash. They gave us the option of riding a horse into the water. They also took pictures that were about $10 each. Then we went back to the stabels & they fed us the best mexican food. Some people played donkey soccar. It was a really fun trip. There was an incident when I was trying to get off the horse. He took off running & my foot was hung up on the stirup. He drug me into the stabel. I looked up & my friends were just standing their taking my picture.

            I did this when I was in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. I'm not sure if it's just the place I went too but the horses were sick looking and I left feeling bad for them. They were super skinny, standing on hot sand in the sun, cuts on them, dirty, tied up with no room to move. I felt really bad for them.

            I dont mean to be a pooper (did I just say that ) and make people not want to go horse back riding, but just make sure you book with a good company if you do this. I'm sure it's fun when the place actaully takes care of them but just an FYI'er.

                    we went hb riding at maroma beach while we were there. You did have the option to ride the horses into the water as well. It was fun, we enjoyed it!

                      Hi Jilly, Did you book this through Dreams when you got there, what was the price and was it far away, how long did you ride for ?
