Zélie, your instructor in charge of the rides, welcomes you to initiate you and accompany you throughout this unique experience. You will start with a small initiation on horseback in a secure environment (20 to 25 minutes), before leaving for a 30 to 35 minutes ride on the heights of the west of the Réunion Island, on charming and adapted paths, overlooking the ocean coast.

Splendid landscapes will accompany you during this ride, just a stone's throw from the Piton Maïdo, one of the famous mountainous peak of the Réunion Island, culminating at about 2,200 meters of altitude.
