The guides were very helpful and Knowledgeable. The trails were easy to ride esp. for beginners. Loved the scenery..esp near the water and the guides took their time even to take take pictures.

I have been coming to Aruba for 25yrs and have ridden every time I come! I have ridden at Rancho Ponderosa for over 15 of those years. Their attention to detail is terrific so that a first time rider can feel safe, while a more experienced one can have a great ride. I ride at least twice a week while... More

This was the best trail ride ever!! I enjoyed the different terrains. Riding along the ocean was superb. The horses are well trained. The tour guides are great at their jobs. Two hour ride for $80 was worth the trip. You must weight under 250 lbs to ride. They have private riding for those who never rode or more experienced... More

My girlfriend and I were lucky enough to be the only two on a 2 hour afternoon tour. Our tour guide, Flavio, was great. He spent a lot of time helping my girlfriend improve her riding skills throughout our tour. I enjoy seeing the desert landscape, a view of the whole island atop a small hill, and galloping along the... More

This was our second time visiting Rancho la Ponderosa (we went last year as well). The ride is really incredible. They match up to horses based on ability. Although the horses really know what is going on and follow the leader, the trail and views are incredible. I would recommend wearing long pants if you have some, even if it... More

My wife and I are experienced riders and have ridden in countless venues. We did not quite know what to expect only to find this experience was one of the best. We took the early morning two hour ride and returned two days later for a private ride. The horses are well cared for and riding a Paso Fino horse... More

I went by myself which I was a little nervous about at first as I thought most people would go as couples. I'm so glad I went. The ride was fantastic, the guides were so friendly, the scenery was beautiful and the horses were very well trained and gentle. I loved this ride so much, we were even able to... More
