Our family to the tour to the beach and ruins and was a great experience. We have an experienced rider in our family and the rest of us has limited to no experience on horses. They were able to pair the rider with the appropriate horse and we were all very comfortable. The driver picked us up from our hotel... More

My family embarked upon a horse riding ranch. We booked the excursion to begin a new journey; well, My daughter was excited until she got on the horse. She screamed to the top of her lungs and a worker by the name Pedro calmed her down, rode next to her and assisted her the whole expedition--- now that's hospitality.. Ponderosa... More

picked us up at hotel around 8am for a 9am trail ride. The horses were perfect, gentle and knew exactly what to do so no worries if you've never ridden. Guides were helpful with the 3 children we had with us (12, 8 and 7 yr) and they loved it. It was a long ride and we stopped at the... More

We had the best day ever in Aruba thanks to Flavio and Pedro at Rancho La Ponderosa horseback riding experience! Don't see the Arikok National Park in a loud ATV or in your car--experience it via horseback! Very reasonably priced for what they offer. They pick you up at your hotel and drive you to the stables. The people, staff... More

This was, by far, the absolute best excursion of our trip. My 15 year old daughter is an experienced equestrian so when we booked our trip to Aruba, her only request was that we go horseback riding. It did not disappoint. The horses and the staff at Rancho Ponderosa were exceptional. Flavio and Nelson did an excellent job of matching... More

My three friends and I booked the longer, 9 a.m. morning tour. The horses were very gentle and easy to manage so don't worry if you aren't an experienced rider. They will match you to a specific horse according to your ability. Pedro was our guide and he took very good care of us! He is very personable, patiently took... More

I was vacationing in Aruba with friends last week. I try to get in some horseback riding whenever I go on vacation, and have lots of experience in many places. I have to say that my ride at Rancho La Ponderosa was right up there with the best of them. We didn't have a large group of riders; in fact... More

We chose this tour and can say it was fantastic. The horses, trails and guide were fun. The views were gorgeous on the trails. I recommend this tour for couples or families.

We chose the private tour and it was worth it. The guide was great and the horses gentle. The views are spectacular! Don't worry about pictures - he stopped a some great places so we could take pictures and even took a lot of pictures of us on the horses. Definitely worth the trip.
