I had a ball with Paula and Fred (books and stuff ;-) ). Great horse people, straightforward, honest and open. Don't come here if you are a Sissi, but if you are looking for the ultimate riding experience with beautiful horses. Only for intermediate / advanced riders recommended. Thanks for everything!!

What a great morning! Definitely worth the trip out to the lovely suburb of San Juan del Obispo. We hopped in a taxi from Antigua not knowing what to expect. Fred and Paula greeted us along with their 8 rescue dogs! The horses (all rescue animals) are so well looked after. They can only take two people out at a... More

I had a beautiful and peaceful ride through the countryside and in to the sweet little surrounding towns. My guide was a lovely young Guatamalan gentleman who obviously loved the horses and the land. I had an amazing time and will most certainly return. Thank you for a day I will cherish!

My ride with Fred and Albert was like going for a ride with old friends. The countryside was open enough for a few canters and trots. I was shown the local farming techniques plus the views of the valley and Antigua. The horses were well tended and responsive. All in all a lovely experience with both Fred and Albert.

A morning spent riding through the countryside was the highlight of my stay in Guatemala. Not only was it an excellent way to see the countryside as you would not see it otherwise, to do so on the back of a beautifully cared for horse and with the guidance of a knowledgeable horseman really capped it off. I am impressed... More

I came there as an almost complete beginner. Paula and Fred are friendly and interesting people. They gave me riding classes, first in the arena, later also outside. I consider the training very efficient. I'm still far from being a good rider but my skills are a lot more than I expected in that short time (10 hrs). I rode... More

I am a beginner ridder but luckily I have a very experienced friend so we decided to try out Ravenscroft. I was a little worried that I wouldn't be able to do the trail but with some helpful tips from my friend and Fred it was a good ride. We went on the hour and a half ride and Fred... More

I had high hopes for my morning ride with Ravenscroft but was very disappointed. I am an intermediate level rider but can honestly say that this was an unpleasant riding experience. The horses are well looked after and groomed but it soon became clear that my horse Alfred was very agitated about something in his mouth early on in the... More

When I arrived at Ravenscroft Stables I was met by Paula and her husband Fred, an American couple who have lived in Guatemala for 20 years. Fred was wearing a kilt over jodhpurs after Paula had picked up on my accent over the phone! Fred who is 84 years old, introduced me to Alfred my horse for the morning. He's... More
