I have some experience in horse riding, but for my friend it was the first time trying (and yes, we said that a few times before starting our ride). Let me say, there is absolutely no introduction how to handle a horse from the guide, because I refuse to describe "pull left if you want to ride left" and "he... More

My wife and I were looking for a place to ride paso fino horses while on vacation in Puerto Rico. We researched several ranches and decided to ride at Rancho Buena Vista because of the way the horses were being taken care of, the facilities and the staff which I would say were excellent. My wife and I were greeted... More

I am an experienced rider, and they offer trail rides that are for beginners up to very experienced. I went on the two hour ride, that included some GORGEOUS views you can't get any other way than from the back of a wonderful horse. The ride on the beach was like out of a dream, and the guide let me... More

I read the reviews for Rancho Buena Vista a month in advance of my vacation in Puerto Rico. I contacted Yoeanna via the email link to their site http://ranchobuenavistapr.com/site/ and she booked me for an hour and a half ride at a great price. She was very pleasant and made sure to confirm the correct date and time. It was... More

Rancho Buena Vista is a very well maintained place and its animals are in excellent physical condition. The equipment (saddles, bridles, helmets, etc.) are in a very good condition also. The care and attention by the staff were excellent. We were a group of 11 and even with such a large group of people Yohanna and the guide made us... More

I'd always wanted to ride horses on the beach, so we thought it was the perfect time to go (on our honeymoon). The horses were great, and the guide was very friendly. :) I'd suggest sun screen for anyone who does this, and pants are a very good idea. My horse wanted to lead the pack and my new husband's...

I called in the morning and scheduled a ride for the 4 of us for that same afternoon. Our guide, Joanna was excellent. I bred, raised, trained and have ridden horses my entire life as well as given lessons both English and Western and led trail rides myself. I am always very leery of going out in a large group...
