Full description

Be picked up from your hotel if you don't have your own means of transportation. Your own personal tour guide will be outside the main lobby of your resort at the time indicated on your confirmation e-mail.

Head to the ranch and meet your horse. Leave the ranch by making your way through the countryside in an extended part of the Natural Park. Keep an eye out for locals working at the lagoons. Depending on the season this part of the trail may look like a desert.

We had a great time here! Rodney was fun and informative about the land and Aruba etc. The only reason I give 4 stars and not 5 is I wish they went over safety and handling procedures better. I personally was ok but not 100% and I had a stubborn horse that needed to be reigned in a bit (Shakira). The other 2 in my party had never been on a horse before and knew nothing about how to handle them, make them move or stop properly or anything. Otherwise it was VERY hot but very different. The north side of the island is all dirt, rock, desert, cactus etc. so not really pretty until you get down to the waters edge and some views of the city. But it was still an awesome experience overall and I would so do it again to see different things! The horses seem well taken care of of healthy, they're rescued and rehabbed so that alone makes me love this ranch

My family and I loved this experience!! Rock was our guide, and he was amazing! On our tour it was just the four of us, my husband and I and our 2 boys ages 9 and 7. I was a little concerned beforehand because none of us have much experience with horses. I was quickly reassured that safety was their number one concern. Rock walked up front leading my 2 boys, and there was another guide in the back. We all felt very safe. Rock told us so much about Aruba along the tour. He also used my phone to take some amazing photos of us along the way. I highly recommend this tour, and would definitely do it again when we come back

We had a great family ride! It is not an impressive-looking stable, the horse tack is worn, the horses don’t look like much. But each of the horses we rode did a great, safe, job. The wranglers treated the horses kindly. And our guide was terrific, we learned a lot about the area. We would definitely ride with them again.
