      I haven’t heard anything new on that front – doesn’t appear to be in operation at all. Riding opportunities for kids seem to be in decline on the island! (Sorry it’s taken me so long to reply! I didn’t see this comment until just now.)

    I just love this resource, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve come back to it both for our own family, and as a place to direct visitors to when they are considering what opportunities are available here! This time I was seeking extracurricular activities for teens to do. Thanks!
