My daughters and I booked a trail ride at the Barrio Dorcas Ranch last week on the NCL Spirit. It was one of the highlights of the trip! We know how to ride so fgelt comfortable. The horses are well taken care of and gentle, but have some nice energy too. They did a good job of matching each of us up with the right horse. The horses are REALLY special as they are gaited. That means a smoother ride. We own 2 Morgans and they are not nearly as comfortable to ride. And, since we knew somewhat what we were doing we were able to move a little rather than just walk along....Do you remember how to get in touch with this ranch? I would like to go horseback riding on my October cruise.
Our guide Shirkie was just super and took good care of us. The ride itself was very interesting. We rode first through the West End Town past the beach bars etc to the beach . Riding along the beach was beautiful, especially as it was near sunset. On the way back it started to rain, then it started to pour. We didn't care as we were having so much fun. I just laughed and laughed as we galloped back through the rain.
I highly recommend this place to anyone who enjoys horses, ot if you just want to give it a try. It was an afternoon I will always remember!
