This was great fun. Four of us went with a guide and rode along the shores of the Sea of Cortez. These animals are very well cared for; stables are clean, riding arena is large an clean, horse riding school for children. A professional business. We were greeted by the manager who inquired on our level of experience and then... More

My husband and I chose the mixed beach and desert ride. Omar was our guide and we were introduced to our horses as a 4 year old Andalusian mare (for me) and 5 year old Lusitano mare for my husband. I have had a long love affair with the Iberian breeds so the chance to ride one was a huge... More

One of my bucket list items was to canter on a beach. My husband and I scheduled a one hour beach ride. I ride several times a week at home; my husband hasn't ridden since childhood. We arrived and were shown to our horses. I was in breeches and half-chaps, so they quickly asked about saddle preference - English? Yes.... More

The horses are beautiful, very well trained and responsive to the rider's commands. We chose the desert trail ride rather than the beach ride because it was very windy that day but I wish we had taken the beach ride because the desert ride was a bit boring. My horse was extremely well-mannered but energetic. My husband had much more... More

We rode today with Cuadra San Francisco and I cannot say enough good things about this stable! Their website said that the tour was not a nose-to-tail kind of ride, which is exactly why we chose them. We made our reservation a week in advance; I had difficulty emailing to make the reservation, so I eventually had to call. But... More

My daughter was missing her horse and wanted to ride while we were in Cabo. Everything was first rate, the horses were well cared for and they even arranged for my youngest daughter, 5, to ride and have a great time. Highly recommend! Thanks!!
