OCEAN WALK: USD 60.00 (45 mins to an hour) Tide Dependent
The ride starts on the beach with a medium to full tide and is an absolute favourite. With our unique hands-on interaction, you will lead your horse into the shallow waters. Our horses love to splash and wallow, there is always a sense of excitement as they thrash the water, then lay down to roll.
There is time for pictures before mounting up on a second horse bareback, then wading chest deep into the blue turquoise seas on our Ocean Walk. You will meander along the coastline looking out at colourful dhows and sandy beaches.
Ride Time: 15-20 minutes minutes bareback.
