Full description
Ride a horse along a scenic beach in Cartagena with a bilingual, English and Spanish-speaking guide. Find out about the local Colombian Paso Fino horse breed, and enjoy a small-group experience for no more than 6 people. Begin your activity with hotel pickup in Cartagena and get transferred comfortably to the ranch. Upon arrival, listen to an in-depth explanation about the Colombian Paso Fino, see how well the horses are cared for, and watch a demonstration of what they can do. From there, you'll be taken to the beach and paired with the perfect horse for your experience level, whether you've never ridden before or are an expert rider. Set off on your ride along the beach, and feel the smoothness of your horse's gait — paso fino means fine step. Disconnect from everything and tune in to the sound of the waves. Enjoy the sea breeze on your face, and have your photos taken by your guide so you can just focus on having an amazing time. After a couple of hours, you'll be taken to a beachfront restaurant where you can enjoy the ocean and sun while lunch is served before you are taken back to your hotel.

We had an amazing time with Maria and everyone who helped out on our ride. Whatever your experience level, I can guarantee you'll enjoy yourself. Maria was our guide for the day and is very passionate about the paso fino breed. We're so grateful for everyone's enthusiasm and kindness and hope to return the next time we are in Cartagena!

Luis and his daughter Maria runs the ranch. We love their passion and energy and love for the horses. This was the first time we've seen Paso Fino horses and it was great learning about their history. These horses are very special and unlike any other horses we've ever ridden before. The restaurant they took us to after was very delicious also. Over all one of the best things we've done here in Cartagena

Luis and his team were absolutely fantastic. The customer service, the explanation of the types of horses and their gaits, and the ride along the beach was outstanding. Luis took beautiful photos and videos throughout the experience, and delivered them to us within hours of the experience. It was really neat learning about the horses, seeing their (very well maintained) living conditions, and learning more about the history of Paso Fino horses. Thank you again for a wonderful time! A must-do in Cartagena.
