Excellent place to take a relaxing horse ride. I have a very little experience but I enjoyed the ride more than I thought cause their horses are so friendly. My 10 year old daughter loved the riding classes, im definitively coming back!

Mira has built a unique natural horsemanship project in the middle of the avenue of the volcanoes. All the experience from the transportation from Quito, the delicious breakfast, the brief before the ride and the ride has exceeded all our expectation.
