This was such an amazing experience. My mom and I booked the 630am ride. We were the only two on the tour which was nice. The weather was perfect and watching the sun come up was beautiful. Nester was awesome! He is extremely personable. It is clear that he loves what he does. We rode Pamela Anderson and Jaunes. The horses appear to be taken care of very well. We did walk, trot, and canter. Where we went was pretty rocky so cantering was the safest. The horses are very well trained and follow each other with very little direction needed. They picked up the trot and canter without any hesitation. Once Nester started going they took off behind him
This is definitely a tour for a more advanced rider. The scenery was beautiful. Nestor offered to take photos of us whenever we wanted. This was a very fun experience! I can't wait to come back and do one of the other tours offered.

Nester and I share the same birthday, so he gave me an early birthday gift to bring back to the states. Riding along the coast is something I will never forget!

I wish I would have selected the 7 am trip as I think that time of day would be beautiful. I rode the 9m and thankfully had applied plenty of sunscreen, but forgot my hat. Bring a water as well. There was quite a bit of trail riding, but definitely parts the horses could run. I have to admit my smile was from cheek to cheek! The horses seemed well kept and everyone was very pleasant. We rode through the protected park so there wasn’t beach riding, but we were close enough to see the crashing waves, hear the relaxing cadence of the ocean, and smell the salty air. This adventure can be for all riders, but the fun is escalated when riding with more experienced riders. I was impressed as the owner was good to instruct the guide on who to hang tight with and who should be more comfortable with their horses. Amazing day and a memory to last me a lifetime.

This was a fantastic ride. Nestor did a great job matching me with the right horse. I had a great time and we ended up cantering many times. Nestor was kind enough to take plant of pictures for me and even some video.

I highly recommend this tour.. especially if you are an experienced rider and want to do something more than walk.

Read great reviews about the horses and the experience. They were all true! Happy healthy horses. Friendly and gentle, they have a sparkle in their eyes and are interested in what's going on around them. Not very typical of a lot of tourist trail riding places. Super friendly staff and excellent guide. I was solo in a mixed group of riders and non riders and the guide let those of us comfortable with horses have our horses hang back then let them canter or gallop to catch up. A very good way to balance a group with mixed abilities (wives who were riders and husbands who weren't) and was super fun to have some independence and get to actually ride! My horse was not overly happy about being held back but he didn't fight much and made me pull out my riding skills. Once he figured out what we were doing he was very cooperative considering someone he didn't know was holding him back from his buddies. All in all a very fun ride. Would do it again!

We had an amazing ride yesterday! Nestor is an accomplished trainer and guide, and even though I’m an accomplished rider, he could tell when I was getting tired (I was celebrating my 65th birthday!). The horses are well trained and very well cared for, and we were mounted appropriately. My little mare was hot, but calmed down as we got to know each other. My husband is not as experienced, but took off at a canter and had a fabulous time and felt very safe. I highly recommend Rancho Notorious!

This was by far the best horse back riding tour we have ever been on. Nestor was the most amazing guide! His passion for animals shows in the wonderful care and attention he gives to the horses. We highly recommend making a ride with Nestor a must for your Aruba trip. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much for an unforgettable experience!

I chose Rancho Notorious because I wanted to do more than just walk and they offered a lot of options. Since I was coming off a cruise ship I was worried that my only option was a walking tour. But my correspondence with Rancho Notorious was answered promptly and I arranged an advanced ride for the afternoon that I was in port there by allowing me to do a morning sight seeing tour. ( We were in port 8 am-8pm). My meeting place was a gas station. I was met promptly and it turned out I was the only rider that afternoon so in effect I had a private tour. Our horses were saddled and ready to go. Considering there is not a single blade of grass on the island ( except the golf courses) the horses were in good shape ( feed and hay imported) My guide was Nestor. He was great. His love and knowledge of horses was readily apparent. He was easy to talk to and more than happy to take photos. Our tour took us over dusty red terrain ( don't forget sun screen and a hat if you wear one) to the top of a hill that offered incredible panoramic views in all directions. Then we went down to the coast to the water line and then looped back to the ranch. We had plenty of opportunities to run. It was exhilarating. My horse Pamela was sure footed, well behaved and an incredible smooth ride just as Nestor had promised. I loved every minute of this adventure.

Nestor was a responsible knowledgeable skillful and terrific guide who took me on the most fantastic tour of the north east side of the island. This tour is not for people without experience. It was wonderful to be able to Gallop! My horse was great and I highly recommend this company.

The best horseback riding tour ever!! Nestor was an amazing guide and both myself (riding for 20+ years) and husband (beginner) had an awesome time. We were able to see so many different sites on the island and Nestor let us canter (and even taught my husband how to canter!) where it was safe to do so. The horses were very well cared for too :)

Had a great ride with Nestor, our tour guide. He picked me annd my daughter in law up at our hotel on time and with ease. Our ride was fantastic. The horse’s are probably the healthiest horses ive seen. Well rounded and cared for. Hosed down when we returned and put away to rest. Nestor was fun and informative and genuinely cares about the horses. My horse Shakira was sometimes feisty (when she knew it was time to do something and we werent doing it) but always well behaved. These horses know their jobs and do them well. Thanks Nestor and company for making this a great experience!
