Not to worry, as horses are excellent swimmers, and the resort’s equestrian centre has over 28 years of experience in taking care of their equines and guests alike. The adorably named Turf & Surf experience, which lasts for two hours, will take guests around the resort’s sprawling complex and onto its golden beaches, before the horses traipse into the waters for a refreshing swim: with you on its back.
