Took the two hour tour to the gold mill on the North Coast. Booked at our hotel, the ranch sends a van to pick you up. Flavio, our guide, gives you instructions on how to handle your horse. The tour is through narrow, rocky paths lined by cacti. A little precarious but we loved it. You go up and over... More

We went horseback riding as part of a business event. Mix of experienced and beginner riders. All had a good time. Real opportunity to ride as opposed to just walking in a line. Flávio and Louis were great hosts. Would definitely come again.

Fun time with Favio at the Ponderosa Ranch. The guides were courteous and went out of their way to make sure the experience was fun safe and filled with spectacular scenery. We rode thru the lowland than thru the cactus filled hills and on to the beach . Highly recommend this tour.

What a great trail ride - I haven't been on many, but this one was the best one ever! The horses were well trained and sure-footed, but this doesn't mean they were slow or past their prime. Quite the opposite! We had a fairly large (15+) group, and were provided with 3 trail guides, and they were all great. The... More

Took a horseback riding excursion with my daughter from the Royal Princess. At first, we were a bit nervous, but the staff showed us how to stay on the horses. They were very patient and reassuring. We rode through residential neighborhoods, cactus covered hills and down to a lovely beach with a natural bridge. We came back unscathed and happier... More

My family has owned and cared for our own horses for about 15 years, and I've also taken lessons in a college equine program, as well as on and off when I was a kid and after college. I have experience in local shows and fox hunting (1st flight). I consider myself an "experienced rider" when it comes to attractions... More

My daughter and I took a half day ride. The guides were great. We rode on the beach and through some beautiful country. They had a newborn colt named Trump because he was born on election day. What a darling little guy. My daughter went back and rode two more days.

This trip was one of the better rides we have gone on anywhere. The staff were helpful and did a great job with some kids who had never ridden a horse before. They built up their confidence and really helped them have a good time. The ride initially wound through some interior hills covered with huge cactus, over hills and... More
