My first time riding a horse in some years. It was fabulous. Saw parts of the island from a different perspective. :)

“Awesome experience!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

A week ago we rented two horses at this beautiful ranch, under guidance of one of the owners Bregje. She told us a lot about the area and the history of Bonaire, we rode to a spot were our horses could enter the water and could even swim!! A must do activity if you are on Bonaire and like horses! :)

“Riding in Bonaire”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

My 9 yo daughter and I ditched our SCUBA-immersed guys and headed for the hills one morning during our Bonaire. Rancho Washikemba was a great choice! The ride was beautiful and gave us a chance to see the 'surfier' coast, including a dramatic waterspout carved through the coast rock. The horses were sensible and willing to go, and the lagoon swim was very nice! I will come back if we ever return to Bonaire--maybe even for some lessons! Brigje and Marc clearly take good care of both the customers and their horses!

After a couple of years not jumping on a horse, I have got this great chance to this one on the most beautiful parts of Bonaire, Lagoen area. The owner is extremely supportive, patient and friendly. Horses are beautiful an sweet. After a nice ride we even got swimming with the horses. I highly recommend you to do so if you have the chance go for this amazing experience. Horse back riding and swimming is one of the activities you can not skip during your visit on Bonaire... Discover Bonaire by horse it will be an experience of a life time.

“If you love horses: it's an amazing experience!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

I am a real horse lover, and worked a lot with them in my life. But this was the first time swimming in the beautiful blue sea with those amazing animals. It was an amazing experience!!!
The horses are healthy and Bregje takes a good care of them.
So if you are on this Iland, don't forget to swim with a horse at Rancho Washikemba......
