Like you, I ask many questions before venturing out on a tour. "Is it safe?" is usually one of my first questions. The manager, Ramon, happily answered all concerns my sister and I had. They even have helmets for adult and kids, if you are timid. They have specific horses they will assign children, beginner adults, experienced children or adults.... More

As a local I had taken the tour a few times before, but today I took the tour together with my 6 year old daughter. She had her very own private guide (Flavio) who helped her very well. She (and I) enjoyed the tour very much.

This was a very enjoyable two hour trail ride. We stopped at the ruins for pictures which was very nice. The guides Pedro, Flávio, and Nelson were very helpful and friendly. They pick up and bring you back to your hotel and give you a cold beverage after the ride. Excellent!

This tour is a must!! It is well worth the money and it was a great experience. They take photographs for you and are very very nice and accommodating for new riders. Also this activity is kid friendly and the horses are VERY well trained! Definitely recommend this for all!

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
