This is a must do when you are in Aruba!!!! It was easy to book. They pick you up from the hotel! Take you to the ranch and get you on the horse. Make sure to wear sunscreen and bring a hat or sun glasses. It took us about 2-2:30 hrs total. Horses are well behaved and felt safe. Once... More

I strongly recommend La Ponderosa Ranch if you are in Aruba for horseback riding! It was a great day full of excitement. There was a little confusion about them picking us up at the hotel so they sent a taxi for us which they paid. Then, they gave us an additional $10 discount for having to wait. That is the... More

The staff couldn't have been nicer and safety came first for sure! They have friendly knowledgable staff, and wonderful horses. They breed and train Paso Fino horses at this ranch, and I was thrilled to be able to try their special gait...so smooth and comfortable (with a little instruction from the guides in order to give the correct cues to...

We enjoyed our trip with Flavio to the ocean beach and he showed us a natural land bridge. We had fun riding the Paso Finos. The horses have a lot of get up and go. You will totally enjoy your ride. The staff and the horses take care of you. No worries, Amigo!

Horseback riding in most tourist destinations is a simple, short ride with a series of photo opportunities. This was most definitely NOT that. Our guide, Flavio (aka the Columbia Kevin Hart), took us through town, up a mountain, and down to the ocean, then back. Six miles. The terrain is the most challenging I've ever ridden on, but the horses... More

Been coming here for numerous years, they are always professional and always aim to please. Whether you are a beginner or advanced rider they will have the right horse for you. This is a fantastic way to see the back side of the island, whether at a full speed gallop or a slow walk it is up to you!!

It was our first time in Aruba and first time riding horses and I was little nervous at first but Flabio (tour guide) made sure I was doing ok. He took the time to teach me what I should and should not do. He was taking pictures of us by the beach which are my favorite pictures from the trip!... More

A dear friend made arrangements at this ranch for a private ride for us. I have ridden but not as much as her. We were picked up from our hotel by our private guide - Rapheal and taken to the ranch. We were assigned our horses quickly-Minister and Tequilla. The horses at the ranch were healthy and very well taken... More

This was a wonderful experience. Flavio was our tour guide and he was excellent. He took the time to teach me exactly what I should do. He was helpful with picture taking. He knew great spots and offered to take as many pictures as we wanted. He was friendly and made us laugh throughout the ride. The scenery was beautiful... More
