Great way to enjoy nature!
Jan 2021
Our half-day ride was a lovely way to see Pucon's gorgeous scenery. Carmen easily differentiated the riding experience for my friend and I who have varied levels of horse experience and comfort; she perfectly matched the horses with our personalities. The 3.5 hour tour took us along a river, through cool, shady wooded area and provided stunning views of the volcanoes. Carmen's passion for her horses and ranch shine through 100%. Highly recommended!

Top experience
Dec 2020
I had a wonderful full day ride here! I was lucky that I had a private ride with Carmen, as I had asked to join a ride with only experienced riders and there happened to be only beginners that had booked other rides. From the moment I contacted the Rancho through WhatsApp, Carmen has been super helpful, friendly and professional. Extra plus is that she speaks fluent English, Spanish and German, so communication is very easy. They provide an excellent pick up and drop off service to Pucon, which makes visiting the Rancho very easy if you don’t have a car. The Rancho is located in a gorgeous place, surrounded by volcanos! Carmen found me a perfect horse that couldn’t have matched my personality and riding experience any better. We were a wonderful team and my horse listened very well and was just amazing. Carmen truly cares for her horses, chickens, dogs, ducks, family and riders! Her little daughter is adorable! Carmen is super fun, friendly and knowledgeable and always makes sure you and the horse are safe and happy. I really enjoyed the full day ride, which had some very adventurous climbs/descents but I always felt safe with the instructions Carmen gave and my horse was able to do everything and seemed to enjoy the whole experience too! The nature and scenery is beautiful with lots of variation. I had a delicious lunch that upon my request was vegetarian, with a beautiful view to relax. Carmen made lots of photos, so I have many great memories from a beautiful day of riding to take with me. This Rancho really stands out as they truly care about their horses, riders and delivering a top experience in the nature. To top it all up: when we got back to the Rancho I saw the Villarica volcano erupting from my horse, incredible!! Thanks for everything!!

Amazing time on our half day ride.
Dec 2020
We had an amazing time on our half day ride with Carmen. We had three riders with completely different experience levels. Carmen was so kind, friendly and positive. She kept our beginner safe and happy, gave me a bunch of intermediate tips that helped my riding, and gave my wife some more advanced rider freedoms. The scenery was beautiful and the horses were all great. I defiantly recommend Rancho Carhuello.

Wonderful Experience
Dec 2019
My wife and I are experienced riders. I used to show jumpers , until the age of about 55, and my wife is a horse veterinarian. We went on 2 separate rides with Carmen and had a wonderful time both days. The horses were excellent to ride, especially in the steep mountains, extremely well behaved, sure footed, and smooth/comfortable. It was especially enjoyable riding with Carmen, she is an excellent guide. She really cares about the horses and the clients. I highly recommend riding with her.

If you can possibly visit them during the solar eclipse on Dec. 14 2020, do it! The Pucon area is one of the best viewing locations and viewing in the mountains on horses is something not to missed if possible.

Incredible Day
Jan 2020 • Solo
One of the absolute highlights of my trip! Of all of the incredible experiences I have had in South America the day I spent riding with Carmen will be very memorable:) Carmen and Gringo made me feel absolutely comfortable and welcome in the incredible Chilean scenery and it was super nice to see how dedicated Luis and Carmen are to ensuring a great experience for both guests and horses!

Most amazing half day trip of the entire holiday
Dec 2019 • Couples
We booked with Carmen via email and were so happy she was super flexible about the date, taking us in for a half day ride on Christmas Day! The entire experience was absolutely fantastic - the ranch itself is located in such a beautiful setting that it’s understandable why Carmen (who is originally from Germany) and her husband would never want to leave this place again! We were in awe, which was helped by the perfect-blue-sky-and-sunshine weather we experienced that day! The ride started smoothly, the horses were perfectly matched to us all (we were a group of three and had had only little experience prior to this day). Carmen was super patient, an amazing guide, so nice and kind and most of all she displayed an absolute love for the job, her horses, the people she deals with and the nature surrounding her. We felt well taken care of from the minute we met her and we didn’t want to leave the ranch (and especially our awesome horses Muchacho and Gringo) when we finished our half day. It was a hard goodbye.
Thank you so much for one of the best experiences in our entire holiday, Carmen! We are still smiling two days later, haha.

Great experience
We did the half day tour today. The other guests changed their appointment so it was just my wife and I with the owner and guide, Carmen.

Both of us never sat on a horse but we got paired up with two very calm horses and we had a great ride. The horses are very well cared for and excellently trained. Soon in the trip we moved on to a trot and gallop!

Carmen really takes care of your needs and makes sure everyone (including horses) is feeling ok. She’s friendly and open to questions in fluent English, German and Spanish.

The only thing I regret is that we can’t stay longer and do a multiple day trip.
