Wonderful ranch with friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The owner Caroline is sweet and hard working, the teacher Paulina is amazing, very engaged and supportive. I was complete beginner and took a dozen lessons with Paulina, who gave me great ground and a whole new confidence on the horseback.
Also took a hack up in the beautiful surrounding mountains with Caroline and loved it!
The ranch as a whole is a charming place and i can highly recommend it, for lessons or hacks, beginner or an advavced. They make everyone of us feel very welcome and well taken care of.

Ranch Siesta Los Rubios turns out to have been an enormous success for a group hack for a teen birthday. The staff are very accommodating and flexible, not batting an eyelid at any of my requests. We went for a hack with a mixed ability group, several having some sneaky catchup lessons in advance. The countryside we rode through is glorious and the horses well looked after, and happy so no sense of it being a routine plod through the countryside. We'll be back for the 3 hr trip into the hills!

All the team at Ranch Siesta and super friendly and gave even the most nervous riders excellent instruction and great support and confidence. A special mention to Paulina and Caroline who were amazing!

We would be SO happy to have you back and take you up into the proper mountains. It's just so breathtaking up there all year around and always something different to appreciate. Thanks for the review and happy the teens had a super birthday experience.

Caroline and Paulina are great instructors, we have made strides in horse riding in just a couple sessions. The horses are beautiful and well-trained. Our confidence has significantly increased as we feel much more balanced and relaxed on horsebacks. Thanks again to Caroline and Paulina, looking forward to our next training with you amazing ladies!

Absolutely stunning 3 hour mountain ride. The horses are beautiful, well trained, in great condition and super well taken care off. Stables are clean and staff is lovely. It was the most beautiful experience, I would recommend absolutely anyone (at any level of experience) to visit these stables. Owner Caroline was lovely as well, thank you so much!

Our family of 5 with three boys aged 12, 10 & 8 yrs old , absolutely loved it and they were all on horses for the first time.
The staff made it such a fun experience the boys are all begging to go again.
Caroline and Paulina are great instructors and fantastic with the children. We had an hour lesson & games in the arena first then an hour hack up the mountain.
Couldn’t recommend it highly enough and we will definitely be going back soon😊👍👌

After many years of not being on a horse, Caroline and Paulina swiftly built our confidence in a fun and encouraging way. 2 x 9yr olds, one of which had never sat on a horse, and 2 ‘middle agers’ who were a little apprehensive to begin with and one slightly more cockey silver fox.
We had a great time playing ‘non-musical’ poles in the arena and about an hour’s hack through the dried river bed and up and down Spain’s Rockies mountains.
Thanks so much for an unforgettable experience ladies and best of luck for your continued happiness and success.

We came three times in total:
- Once for a 1h30 hack in the mountains around the ranch with friends who rode for the first time: the horses are very well treated, in perfect health conditions, very safe and beautiful...!!! We really enjoyed the walk!
- Twice with my boyfriend to take semi-private lessons: I had ridden several times before but Carolina gave me advice that I have never been told before and that completely changed my experience when ridding! She is an amazing instructor and I could rode the same horse I had had during the hack, Ringo :D!
The Ranch is very familiar, people are very nice and welcoming. I recommend 100% this place!
Thanks again so much for those amazing moments!

We liasied with Helen Buteux ( point of contact on their info email address) at length , booking a mountain hack for w/c 17 Sept 2023. I received no replies to confirm our final booking . I messaged via text, what's app, email and their contact form. No reply. Eventually, only yesterday I received a very odd reply from Caroline stating :
"I'm really sorry we are all in a mess this next two mths will reforms . "
I am unsure what this message actually means and if our booking has now been cancelled????
I have sent further messages, but guess what . No reply!
I just wanted to warn other customers who have prebooked experiences.

Together with our kids, aged 11, 11 and 8, we did the 2 hours saddle up experience. The staff is very well trained and made us feel very comfortable and confident with the horses. The horses were very nice. Great experience and we all enjoyed the training and walk out. Would highly recommend!!
