Full description
Make your way to the Hacienda Campo Rico, approximately 20 kilometers east of San Juan, and feel like you are in a completely different world the minute you pass through the entrance gates. Experience the home of different tropical plants and animals, some of which you may encounter on a 2-hour horse riding adventure. Upon arrival, meet the experienced guides and get some basic instructions and hear all the safety procedures before you set off on your horse. Get aquainted with your beautiful steed, and then follow the guides through 2,200 acres of private land. Soak up the Caribbean sun as you trot aboard the gentlest horses around! Marvel at magnificent views of the mountains and coastal plains, and come across lagoons and curious limestone rock formations. Keep a look out for the native wildlife roaming freely in their natural habitats, and learn the history of the Puerto Rico Paso Fino horses and why their health and up-keep is always a number one priority.

    Me and my wife had an amazing experience! At first she was a bit nervous but then she slowly got comfortable and the hang of it. Our tour guide Carla was amazing, she took great photos of us and made the experience overall worth it ! I recommend to anyone to give it a try.

    They kind of broke things down to us, but our guide/trainer acted like we should know a lot of things, even though we are beginners. My Aunt ended up falling off of her horse because the trainer let her go to come assist me after my horse's ropes became unloosened from the fence. I couldn't get a hold of them, so i could only holding onto the saddle, then I shouted for help. He came to help me, but left her without instruction, and her horse's ropes became unloosened from the fence also & she's older, so as the horse moved she didn't have a grip on anything and fell hard in the ground. She, her friend & my sister were so rattled by how she fell & how loud her helmet hit the ground that they asked to be taken off of their horses. Myself & 2 others from our group decided to tuff it out & it did become easier/nicer as we went along. But I didn't like that part in the beginning at all.

    This was a very enjoyable activity while out in PR. Unfortunately I would say the horses do look very sad and overworked. The instructor we had was still new with less than a month experience and even though she was nice she wasn't a great teacher or pit of information. The girl ahead of me was having such a hard time handling her horse and the instructor never came around to guide her or make her feel more comfortable. Instead her horse did whatever it wanted and caused big gaps in the group and for us to be held up.
