Jeep Tours vs. Horseback Riding Tours

We are mid 60's average mobility. Any suggestions for Jeep tours vs. Horse Riding Tour. Heard Las Talsmas Horse tour is excellent. Does anyone have price range for both or any helpful hints ??

1. Re: Jeep Tours vs. Horseback Riding Tours

I think it depends upon how much horseback riding you've done - especially recently. Despite practically being born in the saddle, I haven't ridden much for the past 20 years but got talked into going riding last summer. I'm in my late 40s, work out, go to yoga regularly and kid myself that I'm fairly flexible and in reasonable shape but boy, my hips were KILLING me after one ride that lasted about 2 hours. So much so that I had to dismount and walk part of the way. Fortunately, the discomfort didn't last long and although I was a bit sore the next day, I was fine the day after that. I would stress that this was an easy pace, trail ride type of thing (albeit in an English saddle, which is the only way I know how to ride) - it's not like I was galloping around or going over jumps.

On the other hand, I've heard that Jeep tours can be very bumpy and greatly aggravate any back/spine issues you may have.

Pick your poison I guess - I think either one would be a ton of fun at the time; it's the aftermath I'd be slightly concerned about!

Which jeep tour are you looking at? Joes' Adventure Jeep tour was a popular one but they closed shop. I think there is now a similar tour with hummers.

The best horseback tour I know off is Rancho Baaxal. Research them a bit, and you will quickly see that they have nothing but happy clients.

For the jeep tour I would recommend the one offered by www.Tankah.com.mx

As far as which one to chose from, as the other posted mentioned, it is up to you to pick your poison
