I am an experienced rider and I must say this tour was well worth the money ($60 pp + tip) and the trip (~2 hours from Ponce, where we stayed).
Donna was our tour guide and she was wonderful. She was careful to ask us about our riding experience and if we had concerns about riding. A few of the riders were nervous and had ZERO experience, but everyone wound up having a great time.
The tour takes you through some of Route 413, through some trails and on the coast of some beaches in Rincon. I've been riding in other countries before but never have I ridden so close to the water (see pics).
We stopped and Donna dismounted and took time to take multiple pictures of all of us, which is extremely considerate and a nice feature since obviously you want pictures to remember it by.
Each time we encountered something that may have made people nervous (hanging vines, steep hills, etc.), Donna stopped and explained what we would do beforehand. This made everyone feel more secure, although, the horses themselves make you feel secure.
You can tell the horses are well taken care of and the guides love them a lot! The horses are gentle and easy to handle. We trotted and cantered at times (to our own levels and comfort) and the ride was smooth and so fun.
We will definitely return next time we visit Puerto Rico!
