Yoav: “It’s a once in a lifetime experience, the people love it.

“The horses love it and some of them even get in the water by themselves.

“They get excited when it’s hot outside and the water is cold.

“We train them to be calm around the water- the first time they usually jump, especially when they see a wave, but after a while they are calm.

“When a customer comes I explain everything to them- they don’t need to have any previous experience.

“They need to wear a helmet up until the beach and then they take it off once the horses are on the sand. “

“Yoav added: “We love it, it’s our way of life.”
