We just went on a 2 day horse riding with Sonja, the guide and it was beautiful and so much fun! I was a little afraid that it would be boring for me since I've been riding a lot before and my boyfriend is a beginner but it was not. We both enjoyed it a lot! Thank you!

My husband and I had a great half day ride with Green Horse Ranch! The horses were well cared for and responsive, and the guide really made sure everyone had a wonderful time! We did the Pululuhua crater hike which was lush and green, with ample opportunities to trot and canter. My husband I not a very experienced rider and... More

I want to use this opportunity to thank Astrid and Rhea (our guide) so much for this wonderful experience. Me and my friend did the 2-day trip right at the beginning of our journey through Ecuador, and it remained my personal highlight of this three-weeks vacation! I am a passionate horse rider, and my friend is a beginner, and we... More

Astrid picked us up in Quito and drove us to her ranch. After passing some construction and urban sprawl we turned onto a dirt road and were soon treated to the most beautiful valley (dormant volcano really) imaginable. There was a patchwork of little farms and ranches below while the clouds enveloped the very tall mountains. After a winding, bumpy... More

The Green Horse Ranch is situated in the middle of the Pululahuacrater, a very special place. Even more special to explore this area while horsebackriding! True freedom.. The horses were really fantastic and relaxed, we had a wonderful time riding with Astrid as the perfect guide. Learned some interesting facts about the area and had a great picknick lunch! An...

My friend and I were looking to do some good riding while in Ecuador, and we found it! There weren't other people riding that day, so Becks picked us up at our hotel for a ride past Mitad del Mundo then on a dirt road that went up the side of a volcano, then down into the crater. Beautiful view!... More

We did a 1-day tour in the crater of the Pululahua volcano with Green Horse Ranch and we loved this experience. Astrid had prepared us two nice horses as we were beginners and we haven't had any problems with them. Both Astrid and Rebecca (our guide) were very nice, helpful and knowledgeable about our surroundings. We found the quality/price ratio... More
