Read the reviews before we booked the trip. All the reviews were right on. Horses were in good health and well trained. The ride was fantastic. The guides were great! Friendly, funny, and very helpful. We were abel to ride fast if we wanted once we reached the ocean area. We chose trip 2 to the ostrich farm. Great time... More

Great teaching prior to your ride and the sites were unreal during the ride. I forget the name of our guide but he was great. We had a conversation at the... More

They let us ride, ride, ride. Fast if we wanted and could. The horses seemed very well cared for and were well trained. Views are amazing and you won't see those views hardly any other way besides on horseback.

I always worry whenever I go to a horse ranch that I will find unkept and overworked horses. Not the case here! The horses seemed to be well cared for and they were certainly well trained. We were picked up at our hotel by the the ranch shuttle. It was convenient and nice. We had a wonderful ride led by... More

Our guide was Franklin, he was awesome!!

It was an awesome time, wish I could do it again!!! We did this on our own because our... More

It was a great experience and we enjoyed it alot. Our guides were very knowledgeable and controlled all the... More

First he said it might be better if I do the private ride, in case there are new riders on the group tour, but I was booking by myself and the private tour was minimum of... More

The horseback ride was awesome and was one of the most memorable parts of our trip. Here is how it went: A van from Rancho Ponderosa picked... More

This was the best horseback riding trails my family and I have ever been on. My daughter is 5 years old and she had her own horse and the horse was so good. We loved our experience so much that when we go back to Aruba we are going again. My tour guide was great and the scenery is absolutely... More
