Default Randy's Happy Horses Stone Island?

Does anyone know if Happy Horses is still operating at Stone Island? Has anyone gone lately? Does anyone have her current email? We rode with her in 2004 and just want an update.

We just rode with Randi last week (July 22nd) We were met at the pier by Randi and her dog Bonita and taken over to Stone Island. It was a taxi ride and a short boat ride away and we felt completely safe the entire time. I felt like I was traveling with my grandma as she treated us like family.

Our ride was amazing. There were a total of 5 of us (my three plus one other couple from the ship) and we loved every minute of it. The two guides were experienced and allowed us to go as fast or slow as we wanted to. We finished at a quaint restaurant and had a drink plus chips and salsa and talked for as long as the group wanted to. My daughter went swimming in the ocean waters while we watched from our shaded table. We were back to the port at 2 PM as promised.

All of us had an amazing time and would do it again in a second!!!!

Hi all I thought I would throw this in. There is a weight limit for horses. So if you are a little larger, check first with the place before booking. They replied right away to my e-mail. My hubby is a no light weight so we will skip this excusion. But I do give them credit for the quick reply. That is always a good sign.

Stone island is a short half mile walk and an even shorter water taxi ride for $2.00 per person round trip. Just turn left as you leave the ship terminal. Walk on the sidewalk less than a half mile until you see the little "Embarcadero" sign and ticket booth. The little taxi pier is right there too. Thus itt is very easy to get to Stone Island on your own. The taxi boats run pretty much on demand

Carmelita's is an excellent clean and tasty outdoor restaurant with amazing service. They cater to your every beachy need while you are there.There are lots of activities available there on the island.

You should probably contact that vendor to answer your horse question.

I'm curious as to how we know these horses are "happy." I remain skeptical.

Look to see if they have a sparkle in their eyes. How could they not be happy living on the beach getting to play in the water everyday.
