Sterling, our guide was supper knowlegable, the animals are well kept and the scenery was awesome. A Jungle ride to a unihabited beach. Awesome!

I had a great ride with Red Ridge Stables. I would definitely counsel riders to be able to speak at least a little Spanish as our trusty guide Hector really doesn't speak English. He and his colleague (who's name I unfortunately did not get) do their best to point out local flora. The horses are well kept and gentle. Our ride went up Pumpkin Hill (a scramble!) then down again (more of a scramble!) along the beach, through the forest, around the airport, to another beach and back to the stable.
Sterling and the staff make a great effort to match up riders with horses of the appropriate size and disposition.
It's wonderful to see Utila from different vantage points, especially Pumpkin Hill. And...as another reviewer said...getting picked up and dropped off is a big plus.

Red Ridge is a surprise to be found on Utila and we are pleased to have found it. This is a thoroughly professional stable with very well cared for horses and tack. With a number of options for riding tours, there is something for everyone. You can go into the "bush", down the beach, through the town, or our favorite, to the "freshwater caves". The guides are well versed in what they do and Sterling is our favorite. He is always eager to tell about Utila's history on the ride and has the best disposition. Getting picked up and returned to your hotel at no extra charge is a treat! Highly recommended!

Terrific sturdy and gentle horses, and great island lore provided by guide Sterling. Bring your own bug spray!
