Horseback riding in the beach is my favorite highlight of my trip to Aruba. We had a 7am session with Nestor and he was a great guide. The view of riding in the ranch which is full of cacti was a very pleasant aesthetic and very Instagramable. We rode the horses through a neighborhood before making it to the beach. Once at the beach, it was super cool to have the horse get in the water and want to play for a bit before we took a break to take in the views. Nestor was able to take pictures of us and gave us the experience we were looking for. I would definitely recommend others to book this tour. I liked that we started early because the sun wasn’t as strong and there were less people outside.

Nestor and Rancho Notorious were incredible. So personable, kind, engaging. My friend and I (experienced) went riding with a couple who were riding for the first time and Nestor was able to balance our varying needs, allowing my friend and I to gallop ahead, while teaching the new riders how to cantor. I was very impressed and had an incredible time. Beautiful views, fun experience, great company. Highly suggest.

Favorite part was that Nestor let us ride to our abilities. We got to run and trot .. the guide Nestor was polite and friendly. Picked us up ontime from our hotel ...Best time ever. He took pictures of us on horseback by the beach which we will cherish. AWESOME EXPERIENCE!

Nestor was a wonderful guide for our two hour private advanced ride. We are experienced riders who ride regularly and have ridden different breeds of horses when we travel around the world. Since we have ridden Pasofinos before and have always enjoyed riding their smooth gait, we were looking forward to riding them again in Aruba. We truly had a great time with Nestor as our guide.

we booked through our hotel holiday inn, while on the phone they said they were totally booked for the whole week, then the front desk said she just happened to find a spot for us for a private ride 145.00 apiece for me and my sister, after signing the paper work they took to where the horses are they look under fed their hip bones were showing, their eyes sunk in they gave those horses to the beginner riders not matter whom was riding them they looked in terrible shape, our horses were not quit so bad, once on the ride you never saw a parakeet, a donkey you never saw anything they advertise to get you there. first hour was all dessert cactus and rock in trails they all use, they never get into a trot in our private tour you also had to ask for any pictures to be taken our guide could careless if he was there or not never told you what you were seeing , once at the gold mine ruins you got off your horse for 15 minutes the horses never got water, then back to the ranch did not get to really ride through the sand never went near the water the horses just wanted to get back to the ranch my sister and I are advanced riders would have expected more for the amount of money they got they just seemed to care about making money not proper care for the horses, the beginner riders still had 30 minutes out so they took us back to our hotel I would not recommend this place at all they did not even give the horses water at the end would not recommend to anyone, it was a sister trip to aruba

HI, Sorry to hear you had a bad experience. But are you sure you rode with Rancho Notorious? Because we do not go to the Goldmine. That is either Goldmine ranch or Ponderosa ranch. We are situated a short 5 minutes from the Marriott and Ritz Carlton right in the countryside with Happy and Healthy horses and guides Nestor and Max who love the animals and their guests. We offer english and western tack and on private rides we cater to you. Please have a look on our Face Book page to see if you recognize any of the horses. When you have a chance and are back in Aruba you are more than welcome to come and ride with us and get the "Notorious" experience. You can choose from 1,11/2, 2 to 3 hours rides with us.We only work with small group and specialize in privade rides. Kind regards Barbara

On a cruise, we were in port for 16 hours. This was a special tour offered by our travel agent at AAA. Ended up my wife, a former barrel champ and horse owner of 40 years, was the only one on the ride that morning. I left her in the good company of Nestor, who has an excellent reputation as a fantastic guide. He had her ride "Juanes", who is an experienced horse. My wife sized up the ranch and determined quickly that the small horses were well fed and cared for, unlike some of the misleading reviewers who either reviewed the wrong ranch or did not know an arabian from a paso from a quarter. She was apprehensive at some of the reviews, but very relieved when she arrived to take a look for herself. Anyway, they rode for a while down to the water, splashed a bit, and Nestor got pictures of her and the horse in the surf. She came back giddy, because she has not really been on a horse since we sold our farm a few years ago. Sufficed to say, this was the highlight of her day, and of her trip. Thanks for taking good care of her, Rancho Notorioso. You are doing a fine job!

Thanks to Nestor, this was one of our favorite activities on our honeymoon! This is the best way to see the Aruban countryside! Nestor knows the horses very well, and he also knows how to evaluate riders extremely well. He was very helpful and flexible in our instruction as my wife and I have different skill levels. We got some amazing pictures and is an experience we will remember for a lifetime! We absolutely loved our horseback riding tour with Rancho Notorious!

At first I thought I was crazy to sign up for this adventure as the only adult in charge of 6 "children" from the ages of 9-19. As soon as Nestor picked us up at our hotel he put my mind at ease. He was a true professional! Our experience ranged from beginner to intermediate beginner. We had a wonderful time! Their horses are perfectly trained. Everyone in our group loved it!!! I highly recommend horseback riding along the beach with Rancho Notorious!! Nestor and Max were amazing!!!
