If you have time, like horses and pretty scenery, get in touch with Sebastian from Centro Ecuestre Bellavista for a horseback ride up the mountains (yes, I died a little as the horse was galloping up). The views from above were amazing and something we wouldn’t have been able to see from the ground level.

While in Cuenca for Christmas we arranged for 15 family members to go on a 2 hour ride with Sebastian and his staff. Most people had no riding experience. When we arrived, the horses had been saddled and then Sebastian patiently matched appropriate horse to rider and we headed off into the gorgeous mountain scenery. Sebastian is patient, friendly and... More

Wherever we travel in the world, we make a point to schedule at least one ride. This rated very high on our list of favorite rides. Breathtaking views, wonderful horses that seem to love their (job) as well as a friendly staff. This is a must do when in Cuenca! Sebastian speaks perfect English too.

My brother and I really enjoyed the couple of hours we spent riding. Not only is the scenery quite breathtaking but Sebastian was a superb guide and made us feel very welcome. The horses were wonderful- so docile and though our riding left a lot to desired, we managed just fine and had a terrific morning. I would recommend this... More

I had a great morning riding with Sebastian along the ridge between the valleys of Tarqui and San Agustin just a few ks south of Cuenca. His care was generated as a calm confidence and was largely why I enjoyed the peaceful, relaxing riding. If you have the chance to do this you should take it. Many thanks, Sebastian.

Like no other riding experience...Sebastian(the owner) took us through beautiful terrain on very good trail horses and is excellent at what he does.... because he genuinely loves it .Part of the fun was getting to spend time with him and his family, his son is an up and coming matador at 7, and just being at his facility. Very safe... More

My 15 year old daughter and I went horseback riding yesterday with Sebatian through some spectacular nature. We are beginning horseback riders and Sebastian inspired confidence in both of us. We rode for three hours with Sebastian speaking his perfect English and explaining about the history and naturaleza of this exquisite area in Tarqui.

We had a great time with Sebastian. Sebastian is very helpful and makes sure you get a horse according to your experience. My boyfriend got a first jet one because he has more experience and I got a sweet lady who made me feel like I can ride too. The route is so beautiful and out in the countryside. No... More
