Part of the Masbate province, Ticao Island is a great base from which to enjoy either Diving or Horse-Riding.
You can hire a horse on an hourly basis or “Own A Horse” for the entire duration of your stay.
This allows you unlimited horseback riding and also are able to groom and care for your horse with the assistance of a personal guide.
