This "facility" is located on the grounds of an abandoned hotel. The proprietor lives in the one building left standing. The animals all had ribs showing. A couple of them were positively skeletal. We asked the man there (Greg?) what was up with the horses. He had very little English but we understood that he had taken over one month... More

My wife arranged a sunset horse back ride which I wasn't to thrilled about. It ended up being my favorite outing of our trip to Tahiti. The horses were real sweet and, Eric the owner, was wonderful. The highlight was the trek through the lake which I had never done before. Highly recommend it.

Our experience with la petite started well ... Ended horribly! You can forget any romantic notion of the photos on the web site! Reality is far from that! We ( my husband and myself) e mailed months before our cruise to Huahine. We heard back quickly and confirmed a private ride for the morning of Sept 30 They were told... More

Thank you Eric & Christine for our fantastic horse ride. We booked the sunset ride as we wanted to feel the tranquility of the experience - it was everything we wanted and more! The horses were stunning and easy to control. I loved being able to try rearing my stallion in the water, where he had lighter weight and I... More

Huahine was the last stop on our cruise ship tour of French Polynesia. We had prebooked the tour and were met at the tender dock. As others have said it is a beautiful ride to the farm - we saw a lot of the island. We liked that there were only two other people in our group besides us so... More

Don't know what to think about this place. Made a reservation for a sunset ride months on line months in advance and got an email confirmation, only to arrive and have our hotel tell us the place had called and cancelled us. There was apparently a larger group that had arrived since our reservation was confirmed. They place offered us... More

Eric met us on tender dock and we had a quick trip to the farm. Others have already described the ride perfectly. All you need to take on the ride is a water proof camera to capture some great memories. Thanks Eric for the tip on the restaurant in town, the fish was delicious.

We were met right when we got off the tender. There was another couple from the ship and Eric loaded us into his pick up truck and off we went. It was a bit of a drive but it was a great drive. When we got to the farm Eric introduced us to Christine, our guide, and our horses. We... More

The experience from beginning to end was welcoming, well organized and all around relaxing. Eric the owner, manager and horse trainer was a wonderful host. I could see he truly loves his horses and his life on the Island. This makes it that much more enjoyable to share the experience of the ride with him. The trip across Lake Fauna... More

Eric was so calm and gentle and just being around him made you relax. I can see why certain people have a gift with animals, humans included. I have ridden horses a few times in my life, mostly as a child and my husband was a newbie. They did a wonderful job explaining all the basics and off we went... More
