Al­though most horse-back­rid­ing tours are tai­lored to novices, it is ben­e­fi­cial if rid­ers have some prior horse-rid­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Rid­ers are paired with experienced horses that know their way, al­low­ing rid­ers the free­dom to en­joy the scenery and the nar­ra­tion pro­vided by knowl­edge­able guides.
