Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Enjoy nature at its best. There is nothing like the freedom of being on horseback and traversing the hills and valleys of west of Granada. The scenery is beautiful with views of Mombacho Volcano and farmlands. Once there, we will assess your skill level and put you on the perfect horse. All of our horses are healthy and happy and love to go on tours. The ride will take you through the countryside, near the Laguna Apoyo, and then we will ride through farmlands and hillsides. We currently offer Long and Short tours any day of the week.

Another fun ride with Ride a Painted Pony Tours! We have done this several times - we live in Nicaragua and we love to take our friends and out of town guests out horseback riding. The scenery is beautiful! A wonderful way to experience Nicaragua.

On our trip to Granada, many recommended visiting the isletas and a swim at laguna de apoyo. But the best was our excursion with Ride a Painted Pony. This horeseback private tour was fabulous! The ride through some of the most beautiful sights outside of Granada through the pueblos blancos, the views of the laguna were breathtaking! A short stop at a local cantina, great guides and healthy beautiful horses gave us a wonderful memory of Nicaragua!

We live in Nicaragua and one of our favorite activities is going riding with Janice at Painted Pony Horseback tours. The beautiful horses are well trained and responsive, yet gentle enough for beginners. The 3 hour ride takes you through a couple of scenic small towns and up to the rim of a volcano with great views of the laguna below. Janice and her husband Jean Marc have lived in Nicaragua for several years and they offer a truly "up close and personal" tour that is off the beaten path and a lot of fun. VERY highly recommended for adults and families with kids.
