Sunset Horse Ride

This is an activity that will be very fun for some, and probably less enjoyable than expected for others. The guided ride begins in the afternoon, in the hills behind a large power generation plant. The horses are well-trained and the riding is fun. As evening begins, the posse descends upon a small stretch of beach and you actually get to ride the horses down the beach into the water.

As soon as they hit the water, all the horses begin to defecate and most of them try to get back to shore. In order to enjoy the moment, however, the guide instructs the riders to keep going back and forth amongst the bobbing manure until sufficient photographs have been taken for posterity. Marc AuMarc truly enjoyed this aspect of the experience; other members of the team were not as enthusiastic.
