We truly loved this excursion. First it was very well run and superbly organized. The owner asked us some questions about previous riding experience and then matched us up perfectly with horses that were suitable for each of us and our varying experience from more than 20 rides to zero -- We were a family of 4 including a teen...

We went horseback riding for the first time in Aruba. Compared to our previous experiences with similar rides elsewhere, the experience here was great. The trip started with short tidbits about the history of Aruba on the van ride to the ranch. The beautiful horses were well matched to the riders' skill levels and were very energetic, especially given the... More

If you enjoy horseback riding....you will enjoy this trip. They provide a great review of how to ride, do's and don'ts of riding, and the scenic trip is gorgeous. Be prepared to get dusty and have fun!

This is a good place to go horseback riding. The only reason I'm giving it a 4 instead of a 5 is because the guides are not very communicative, and they dumb the caliber of riding down to the lowest common denominator. Oh, and the driver of the van is crazy! Trip advice, wear jeans, not shorts. You'll be hot... More

Had a great day with Gold Mine Ranch. The horses are very well cared for and well behaved. We really enjoyed spending our morning with Gold Mine. We enjoyed talking with the folks here, and learning some of the history of Aruba. Definitely want to include Gold Mine on your next trip to Aruba!

My daughter wanted to ride horses on the beach and I read reviews that Gold Mine Ranch was the place to go for beginners. I have never rode a horse and I also got a new hip last year. So I was worried about doing this but I had to try for my daughter. It was the best, Johnny and... More

It was absolutely lovely! It's been months since I went on the ride but I still remember how beautiful and fun it was. I had the sweetest horse, young and full of energy, but also smart and knew the path so if I trailed on ahead it was ok. I was a more experienced rider than my boyfriend so I... More

We opted for the afternoon tour. The guides were great. I was a first time rider and they picked a horse (Goldie) to accommodate me. I was comfortable the entire time. They let us gallop a bit and we got to ride in the water. The scenery was beautiful! Along the trail, they stopped to take photographs for us. I... More
