A wonderful tour and story and the show was very special, so glad we booked. The only complaint is that we missed our English group being called at the start of the tour so it began without us. It would be good if the tour guides can ensure their groups are complete before beginning.

Very happy and satisfied with the staff and the shows, in addition to all the facilities

A unique experience, especially seeing the foals & their mothers in the arena.

It was a very special experience and everything was right.

Very well organized, children friendly, great show
