Beth and her cowboys provide a truly memorable experience. She listened to my concerns about having never ridden before and made sure I felt safe and comfortable . Secondly, the ride is in beautiful country with vistas and amazing views. The lunch was an added touch that helped me appreciate another aspect of the area, the people, and their hospitality.

Highly recommend this experience for anyone.

A wonderful experience. Beth takes care of you from pick up to drop off. The boys at the ranch definitely know what they’re doing, their horses are beautiful and well cared for. The trail is spectacular, lunch was prepared onsite and delicious, followed by a few hours at the hot springs. Beautiful day spent with beautiful people.

This was a great activity to do while in San Miguel de Allende. We had the perfect day for it also. The horses were nice and very responsive. Beth is great ! She communicated well and even moved my day a couple times due to the weather. It is a leisurely ride up the mountain complete with a few chances to trot or gallop. The cowboys are wonderful and take good care of everyone. You can go at your own pace. And then - the LUNCH - fantastic! If you are even debating a little - take this ride.

If you are considering this, book it now!

Beth and the cowboys are amazing! They make you feel right at home. The horses are so sure footed, the views are breathtaking and the FOOD OMG… the food is better than you mom’s.

You will not be disappointed. You need to see this side of San Miguel and of course meet Beth.😜

Our adventure included me, my husband and 10 year old daughter and two new friends. We varied in riding abilities and it was perfectly accommodated.

Please note the hat and sunscreen are no joke! Bring both!!!

Beth was such a wonderful hostess; the day was perfect! So much fun to be out in nature with the horses. Great combination of chill and adventure. And the lunch provided afterwards was awesome and so nourishing. (I had some dietary requirements that I did not anticipate they would accommodate and they did happily; it made me feel so welcome!). Can’t wait to go back and do it again!

We had a beautiful ride with Beth and her guide Reyes in beautiful country near San Miguel and a great Ranch lunch when we returned. You don't need to know anything about horseback riding as Beth's horses are rock solid and know their job. This was a great way to see a more authentic picture of Mexican life outside of the central tourist district.

My brother was visiting San Miguel de Allende, where I live, with his 20 year old son. Beth encouraged us to canter on a cobblestoned area where NO-ONE should ever canter. It was very unsafe and dangerous. Fortunately, nothing happened to my brother although he is 70 and has never cantered before in his life (which she didn't even bother to find out). My nephew, however, fell on his face and needed stitches. Afterwards, in addition to the $30 per hour per person that was charged, Beth wanted us to also pay tips to each of her riding assistants which would have amounted to another $25. I refused and thought she should pay them out of the money she charged us. I used to be a professional horse woman years ago - and can tell you that this woman knows almost nothing about horses or professional safety. She only began riding when she came to San Miguel five years ago and is a rank amateur. In addition, the majority of the time you ride with her, you will be riding on rocks, not real country roads. Very discouraging.

As the owner, I take every precaution to ensure all our clients are “safe” since safety is our #1 priority as you can see in the 169 reviews since 2011. I have taken over 3,500 clients of all experience levels trail riding which is my expertise and use plenty of professional cowboys who are very attentive. I provide a detailed western lesson each time and ask everyone’s level of riding experience. I rely on the individual’s responses and say it’s all about “communication”. You and your husband responded that you enjoy cantering since you owned horses years ago. Your nephew responded he has galloped before twice and your brother didn’t respond. I say you can walk, trot or canter based on your comfort level while we wait for the others on the trails. I do not encourage any client to go beyond their comfort level…… I asked each if you wanted to canter and each responded “yes”. Since he had ridden before he told us he knew what he did wrong by stopping his horse abruptly from a canter and fell. Again, I am very sorry he fell and we were glad that he was okay. I take full responsibility and took him to the emergency room to get checked for stitches while the rest of you decided to continue riding with the cowboys since he was okay. Your brother told me that he enjoyed his horse and cantering after the three of you completed the trail ride. Our ranch horses are sure footed and know the trails where we ride through the river and up alongside the canyon on a basic/easy trail to enjoy the views of the Canada de Virgen. We return back down through the beautiful countryside on the various trails depending on the age and experience levels!

This was a terrific day....!!!
Beth personally picked us up and took us out to the ranch. Here were beautiful, well-cared for horses at a sustainable family-run community. The tours contribute to their ranch and they provide a delicious, antithetic Mexican lunch.
The 2 1/2 hour trail ride took us to the high dessert where we walked, trotted and cantered. We stopped for pictures at the stunning cliff-side ravine. The ride was fun and enjoyable.
Next Beth took us to La Gruta spa where we bathed in the natural, very hot springs in the grotto and pools. A very special place

We loved out time in SMA but this tour was the highlight of our trip...!
Beth was terrific, professional and fun to spend the day with....Thank you so much*

My friend and I were not sure which riding tour to choose. We looked at several and decided on this tour because of the hot springs. We were so happy to have chosen Beth's company! Wow, a tremendously fantastic day! We were picked up in San Miguel, escorted to the ranch in a lovely community in the hills. Beth talked about the community and how her company works with them to help create a sustainable service offering horseback rides in the countryside.

The horses are beautiful, well-kept and very easy to ride, especially where I'm a beginner. Beth described the history of the places we rode and stopped at all the right places for photos. We were accompanied the local cowboy Reyes, who expertly helped us on and off the horses and guided us throughout the tour.

The ride finished with a fresh lunch and a trip to the beautiful hot springs for a relaxing afternoon in beautiful surroundings. Thank you so much!

Yesterday was amazing. We had the BEST ride celebrating the Cabalgata de Cristo Rey (blessing of the horses) from the moment we arrived at Catalino's rancho in Boca de la Cañada departing for our 6 hour ride in the dark at 6:30 a.m Loved riding Sucio. He's a strong little guy and very responsive. We rode with Catalino, Reyes, Manuel, and David. They were great fun, telling stories and laughing all the way, and were also extremely considerate and thoughtful throughout the ride. The scenery was breathtaking. As dawn broke, the grand vistas from the mountain top, with San Miguel far in the distance still twinkling in its night lights - awe inspiring. Swaths of magenta cosmos and yellow sunflowers colored the landscape everywhere. 6 hours after departing, we joined 200 riders, and in a beautiful long procession, rode into Dos Arroyos for the blessing of the horses - Cabalgate de Cristo Rey. The day truly rivaled rides I've done in the Rockies, Peru and Chile Patagonia. Top notch in every way. This is one of the finest ways to see true Mexico, experience the ranchero lifestyle, and appreciate the warm graciousness of Mexican people.
