Full description
Enjoy the Medellín mountains on horseback and take in the fresh air of nature on this 4.5-hour guided excursion with a professional horse handler. Before mounting your new majestic friend, you’ll first be introduced by your handler. You’ll see that your horse is just as excited as you are to go for a ride: maybe even more so.   A long, winding country road climbing a mountain gets you comfortable riding. Then, after a quick cool-off at a hidden waterfall, the real ride begins. Explore the lush jungle in the Colombian countryside before heading back to the stable. When you return, your handler will help you give your new friend a good shower after a good workout.

The tour with the horses was awesome! The horses were very well-trained and the tour guides were very nice. During the mid tour, we went further on foot for 5-10 min to see a waterfall. The waterfall was beautiful and even thought the path was very slippery, due to the rain, the tour guides were very helpful to prevent us from falling. By the waterfall we tasted some delicious Colombian fruits. I am very enthousiastic about the trip and I would definetely recommend it so others as well!

It was a great tour! Started out feeding a carrot so the horses and then getting comfortable riding around the track. The climb up was beautiful and the horses were very easy to ride. There is a little bit of a hike to the waterfall but that was also beautiful! We hung out there for about 15 minutes and headed back. Highly recommended this tour. We booked last minute and would do it again!

Had a great time with our guide Pablo. The horses were very nice and the preserve we rode on was very nice. They provided some nice fruit during the ride and then even a cold drink after we were through. The ride was around 3 hours. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
