We had a wonderful two hour horse ride in the countryside with Sandra.
Sandra was really good to communicate with in advance and picked us up from the bus station at Colonia. Her horses are beautiful and so well trained. Sandra is really knowledgeable and a great teacher. Would highly recommend!

Sandra and her husband are very welcoming and easy going persons. Making the appointment & booking the tour via WhatsApp was super easy. Their horses are all in a very good shape, well trained and handsome.
I had a great ride on horseback to the beach including riding in the river!
It was a special moment, nobody else there, only us and some birds 😍

Sidenotes: the Gaucho Style is a different Style from riding in Germany (but they will help & teach u)
Think about the right trousers to wear (; shorts wouldn’t be the best... ever saw a rider in shorts?! Even not when u really want to ride on horseback (;

Thanks for the adventure!

Great ride with Sandra!!! If you are an experienced rider, try to arrange a ride with a small group of friends who can ride as well. Sandra is more than happy to challenge you and give you an adventurous experience. You will have great fun galloping in the water and on the river shore. It can be challenging but great fun. Cabalgata an Uruguay organizes rides for beginner as well.
THX Sandra!!!!

More than any other attraction in Colonia except a walking tour of the historic center, this is a must-do! The hosts were wonderful, with great recommendations, and the countryside breathtaking. Galloping on the beach and going into the water was a dream come true! Safety was very high and yet we also had the freedom to direct the horses as much as our skills allowed (not your normal trail ride). I can't wait to return for a full moon ride with a campfire dinner on the beach--I can't imagine a more romantic evening!

We had a 2 hour ride with a guacho and Lovely Sandra. The horses were suited to us individually and we felt safe. This is for those that don't want a pretentious experience but an authentic experience just outside of colonial. We were picked up outside our hotel and dropped back. Sandra speaks English German Spanish to name a few languages. We were given a really good lesson in handling the horses in their habitat and the country side was picturesque !!! We recommend you do it!!!

If you are a rider, this trip should not be missed. This was a rather spur of the moment decision to visit Cologna from Buenos Aries and a ride thrown in as we had a day off from tango. It was a comfortable ride to the river and a joy to gallop in the water on the beach. Lots of room to stretch out, not like a lot of other rides where one can only walk, let alone trot. The horse chosen for me was perfect, we got along well. This trip will most likely be repeated in the future for a longer stay in Cologna. AB-S

Was travelling with a friend who really enjoys horse riding. I was/am a complete novice and had struggled with previous attempts at horse riding.

We were picked up at our hotel and driven to the ranch. The guide was very friendly and adjusted the selection of horses and our ride to meet our riding level.

By the end I was far more comfortable on the horse and with the guides help even galloped a little.

It was a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. My only advice is to not oversell your previous riding experience. An experienced rider on a more beginner friendly horse is better than the other way around!

If you are passing through Colonia this is definitely a great way to spend a few hours of your time.

We had a great time on this ride! We were picked up right on time from our hostel, and brought out to the farm in the campo. We had an excellent guide, who spoke perfect English (and thank goodness, we were struggling with the Uruguayan accent anyway, and my horse vocabulary isn´t 100%). The ride was very well tailored to our ability level--walking, trotting and cantering. The horses were all lovely, we felt very safe and had an amazing ride through some beautiful scenery. We felt like gauchos--exactly the way we wanted to !

Thank you so much, if we find ourselves back in Colonia we will definitely be stopping by again. Danke fur ein super tag! Amanda & Liz

The people are so friendly and gracious. Ended up at a place that served beef in this brick fired bread to die for! It was a cold, rainy day and as I warmed myself by the fire someone took my photo. Happy, glowing days in Uruguay.

Sandra is an amazing and genuine person! She was very good at communicating before the tour, and speaks several languages fluently. Picked us up in town and drove us out to the ranch. The 4 of us had a great time! I haven’t ridden a horse in years. She taught me how to ride a horse and enjoyed every minute of it. We even did some galloping. You can tell all of her animals are taken very good care of. Thanks for a great day!
