Is this activity recommended for a novice swimmer? Do they provide life jackets?
Yes we offer life jackets by request!
tell them you have an inexperienced swimmer - can not see it being an issue. niece is not a strong swimmer and she had no issues, can't remember if one of the lads was given a jacket
I didn't see life jackets as an option but not sure if they are available. You are on the horse the whole time you are in the water. I am not a big swimmer and I felt very comfortable.
You’re riding a horse, surging across the water of a calm bay. That alone is intoxicating. The horse is in the water up to the bottom of its torso, so that’s not deep enough in the water for you to feel at risk. You can stand in that water. But I’m sure if you ask they can make adjustments for you, like a ride through more shallow water, or supply you with a life jacket.
I don't think it would be a problem, there are plenty of experienced staff that come along to ensure everyone is safe. Not sure about life jackets but if you message them from their website they will respond. It is an amazing experience, I am not a great swimmer and I loved every minute of it and felt safe at all times
