I did a two hour trek in may and thoroughly enjoyed it! I looked at riding places in ao nang and wanted somewhere they treated the horses well - otherwise I wouldn't enjoy it! I called them up and within ten minutes they came and got me and my partner (and dropped us off). The horses were clearly looked after and happy :)
They had a horse ready and we walked down to the beach with my partner. The tide was in so we couldn't get a good run but we left my partner on the Beach and went for a run in the jungle. It was such fun! Galloping through the jungle! We stopped and spoke to locals smiled and waved and went all the way to the shell cemetery. Then we went back the tide was out more so we ran along the beach.
Every time we went to gallop the guide asked me if I wanted to run (obviously I'd said yes each time!) So don't worry if you don't want to just say no!
I'm not sure what the bad reviews are about - some people have said it wasn't fast enough and others say it was too fast. Communicate with the owner before you leave and tell them what you want. They're not mind readers! And they want you to have a good experience. So either say yes running lots! Or no running just walk.
Also, the horse I was on was very responsive and, although I am an experienced rider, I could have quite easily got her to stop whilst running.
The great thing is, it's not touristy so you get the whole beach to yourself! Amazing!
I'll definitely be coming back! I can't wait! :D
Thank you for letting my fulfill my dream of riding on the beach!
