I did the Pululahua Crater ride which was a full day ride from Green Horse Ranch. My horse Smeagol was lovely, well looked after and a pleasure to ride, we had plenty of good canters! The guide who took me out was lovely and the scenery was spectacular. This is a must do if you are in the area.

I was searching for an Andes ride in Ecuador and the description on the Green Horse Ranch website looked very appealing. A bit of a worry first if there would be another participant, because I would be travelling alone, but soon came the liberating email of Astrid that a British woman would join me on the ride. I've done long... More

My girlfriend and I tried to find a last minute ride and Green Horse Ranch replied to us very quickly booking us on a day tour the next day. We were beginners, one completely so, and thought we might go walking about down in the crater for a while. Instead, we went on a real journey through small steep roads... More

Wonderful, from the very first email interaction I could not be more pleased. Astrid was incredibly helpful above and beyond the Ranch experience, even arranging airport transfer for me the following day. The ride was amazing, challenging, fun and exciting. The scene is breathtaking. The Volunteers / guides are friendly and knowledgeable, beautiful very well cared for horses and property.... More

My family includes two experienced and two novice riders. Astrid and her employees allowed us to meet and choose a horse suited for us for the Pululahua Exploration Trail Ride. The two guides who accompanied us were friendly and knowledgable. The setting could not be more beautiful. The riding experience was unparalleled, as we were able to trot and canter... More

My friend and I agree with all recent reviews -- Green Horse Ranch is meticulously prepared and a LOT of fun. We did the day trip around the crater town---including the transportation this activity is a steal. Our main guide, Clemence, is extremely knowledgeable, patient, positive, and cares a lot about everyone in the group (even the fellow professionals). You... More

Wonderful 2 day ride. Everything was organised well, horses were well looked after, guides excellent (fun, friendly and knowledgeable), scenery spectacular and food plentiful and tasty. We stayed the night at a great eco hotel as part of the tour which was also very good. They cater for all riding experiences and have horses to match. Highly recommended.

I had a lovely day ride at Pululahua. The horses were well behaved and well taken care of. The guide was very knowledgeable and helpful and the scenery was stunning. They cater for all riding abilities and it was a great way to see the crater.

My friend and I didn't have much time in Quito and were looking for an outdoorsy activity less than two hours away. This was a match, and we were pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed it. The views were beautiful, the company was pleasant, and we wound up learning more than we anticipated about horseback riding. Tip: Make sure... More

My husband and I had a fantastic time on a four day trek with Astrid. We've both ridden a lot and were very happy with how she took time to choose horses to suit us, and which ride would be interesting. I was especially impressed with how Astrid catered for gluten free requirement. We also really liked the places we... More
