It was great! Toni chose the right horses for my daughter and me and we went for an evening ride on the hills of a mountain between olive trees and grapes. The views were beautiful. It was a pretty cool and relaxed ride despite temperatures of >30 degrees, because at that time the hill lies in the shadow of the sun. No trotting and no galloping and that was fine for me because I am not such an experienced horseback rider. We loved it!

 

My friend and I were on a Rick Steves tour and on our “vacation from a vacation day,” we went horseback riding on the Peljesac Peninsula.  We stayed on Korcula Island and Rachael arranged the day for us.  She verified the passenger ferry times and for Toni to meet us at the ferry dock.  Toni loves horses and bees.  His horses are his pets and very friendly.  The horses are 12-14 hand high so they are very easy to mount.  His tack is English style and the best quality and beautifully maintained.  We rode for over an hour and a half through vineyard, olive groves, trails with views of the limestone mountains and our turnaround point was in a meadow near a couple of churches.  My friend rode a mare and her 25-day old foul and her two-year-old filly following behind her.  My mare, Nina, did not like mud puddles and once I realized she wanted to leap over the mud, I was very comfortable. I have ridden horses in Jordon, Spain, Ireland, Hungary and the US and this was my best horseback riding experience.

We very much enjoyed our horseback ride yesterday and will be sure to spread the word on TripAdvisor.  Though the ride was not challenging, the scenery was beautiful and our guide, Tony, could not have been more helpful or charming.  We're so glad we found you, as two agencies previously told us there was no riding near Korcula!

Rachel organized a horseback ride for my sister and me in Peljesac, the peninsula just across from Korcula. We took the short ferry ride and were met by Toni, then driven into the interior where he kept his horses. The horses were well groomed and well trained. Riding is English saddle, which was new for me, and quite challenging. I'm not the best rider to start with, but this added more fun. Toni led us along trails and roads exploring higher and higher up the mountain. He gave us some local background and answered questions about the area that we had. Joining us was the foal of one of our horses, who trotted happily amongst us, with the older horses nipping her flank any time she'd get in the way. We had the opportunity to trot and gallop at will, which was also nice, although that's where my inadequacy with English saddles came to the fore. But the ride also gave us an opportunity to see how people who aren't in the tourist business live.

 

Would I do this again, and recommend it ? Absolutely!
