Traditionally, horses were the islanders main mode of transport and this custom is still very much apparent to any visitor to Easter Island. Many local lads still get around the island on horseback and while strange at first, you soon get used to the sight of Rapa Nui locals riding bareback along the streets of Hanga Roa and of horses tied up outside the shops and market.
Visitors can also get in on the act with many places offering horseback riding around the island. Half day, full day and even overnight excursions can be organised and give visitors the chance to explore the more isolated parts of the island such as the Poike Peninsula. There are a variety of operators on the island offering horseback riding with Piti Pont being the most recommended tel.
