HORSE RIDING WITH FELIX STABLES

WHAT IS YOUR BUSINESS STORY AND WHEN DID YOU OPEN YOUR DOORS?
Officially, we opened Felix Stables Ltd in September 2012 but it has taken much longer than that to truly open our doors. As any entrepreneur will tell you, opening a business is never an easy thing, and plans often don't work out as you expect them to. Sometimes you just have to take it one small step at a time. There will always be some-thing in your way but you need to keep moving forward.
There are many reasons why we chose Mauritius its location and tourism, its beautiful landscapes and beaches (all of which we are fortunate enough to ride and enjoy every day), its amazingly diverse people and of course, their love of horses and racing!

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR ESTABLISHMENT?
Felix Stables is a young, modern and dynamic equestrian centre which looks to offer an unforgettable horse riding experience to all who visit. The barn has a contemporary and innovative design, which allows the horses to interact with one another whilst still having the comfort of their own large stable. The out ride trails are among the best on the island, whether it is on the beach or in the rolling hills with views that are truly breathtaking.

WHICH RIDES ARE THE MOST POPULAR?
Our beach rides are one of our top activities, but we also have many visitors who prefer to discover the "greener" side of Mauritius and go exploring the hills and their amazing views. We also lend our horses for photographic requirements such as modelling shoots and for weddings as well as for children's parties which can be arranged either on our premises or at the beach.

WHAT IS THE MISSION OF YOUR COMPANY?
Its primary function is to offer to tourists and locals alike a chance to experience some of the most amazing country side Mauritius has to offer, and by doing so, we are able to give re-tired racing thoroughbreds a second chance at life in a new relaxed home. Reaching out to the local community has become a main objective for us. Many locals in the nearby areas have never seen a horse other then on the TV or in pictures, so it's wonderful for us to be able offer them the opportunity to get to know the horses and perhaps make a few dreams come true along the way! It's great that every day we get to wake up and live our dream, by helping others live theirs!

WHAT MAKES YOUR COMPANY UNIQUE?
The people and horses in it! Each of 16 17 our horses has its own character
which you can't help but fall in love with. And the people? You couldn't ask for a harder working & more determined team of individuals. The staff literally go out of their way to make every ride or activity special and unforgettable.

CAN YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR OUT RIDES?
Because we are in such a unique location, we are able to explore a wide variety of riding routes.  The beaches of St Felix and Riambel are long (about 5km) and are mostly quiet as people generally avoid bathing there because of the strong currents. This means that the beaches are perfect for us to ride on whether we are hosting advance riders who wish to go for a slow canter and splash through the waves, or for beginners who just want to get their toes wet. On the way to and from the beach we pass by small farms and old colonial buildings which really gives you a sense of what life might have been like before the age of the auto-mobile. Then there are the hill rides, which offer the most amazing 360° views of not only the sea but also the mountains. These rolling hills are peaceful and stretch on for kilometres all round with so many different routes to chose from and explore.

WHAT ARE YOUR CLOSING COMMENTS?
We know that there are many people who would love to ride and be around horses but are scared to do so for fear of their size or how they will react. Allow us and our horses to help you conquer that fear and be able to make your dream come true!
