It was an amazing experience, and Rudy was very friendly and informative. He made the experience one of fun and relaxation, and we will definitely be contacting him in the near future! In my opinion, there... More

Very friendly staff and strong horses! The parcour is great. The first part is riding in the Forrest and then you meet all these amazing beaches. Enough time to take photos and sun creme stops :). We rode 3km on a beautiful white beach where we could gallop. After 1:40 - 2:00 hours riding you arrive at Rincon beach where... More

My husband and I took a tour with Rudy to ride out to Rincon beach and back. We booked this last minute on a Monday mid-morning and Rudy was incredibly accomodating. He came to pick us up in 45 minutes and was great to hang out with all day. It was my first time riding, and he was very patient... More

I love to ride and I love to travel and my favourite thing is to combine the two! Rudy's Rancho sounded like the place to head. So when we got to Las Galeras I walked along to beach to say hello and organise a ride for the next day. Rudy and Caroline seemed fun and friendly and the horses I... More

I had a lot of fun. He is a super nice guy and takes his time to show you around the wonderful beaches at Las Galeras. He speaks german very well, too, and doesn't bother about group sizes. Very friendly and helpful.

Horseback with Rudy is as pleasant and relaxing as it can get. He is a super nice guy and takes his time to show you around the wonderful beaches at Las Galeras. He speaks german very well, too, and doesn't bother about group sizes. Go ahead and book your ride if you are around, it's worth it so much!
