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

Wonderful horses, beautiful scenery and helpful guides! Can not say enough good about Astrid and her outfit. So happy we were able to book despite waiting till the last minute. Pick-up in Quito was perfect, drive was scenic and the crater itself is other worldly. My boyfriend and I enjoyed every minute of our trip. He is a intermediate rider... More

Drop dead gorgeous scenery. Professionally guided with happy horses. Delicious local lunch included. One of only two inhabited volcanic craters in the world. Reminded me of Hawaii.

My first try to thank all of our commentators! Am certainly not as good in computers as in horse-back riding! Thank you all who have taken the time and the effort to sit down after the holiday and write notes and recommendations, and of course the helpful critiques. This is not evident at all and helps us small and "remote"... More

I've only been on a horse twice in my life, and I'm not sure why I wanted to do this day trip, but I did it and have no regrets! It was a lot of fun. Astrid paired me with a horse that was fairly 'relaxed' and I wasn't nervous at all. My husband and I were the only 2... More

Amazing three, full days on horseback with Astrid. Great care taken in assessing skills of rider to make sure horse is right. Superb planned route through the Cloud Forrest on tracks seldom used - with coffee beans and orchids growing, dripping with velvet ferns, stunning scenery and views. Hacienda where the overnight stays were was excellent - great food. All... More
