This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Horseback Mexico, Calle Murguia 403 Centro Historico between Avenida Juarez and Pino Suarez, Oaxaca 68000 Mexico
Your tour begins with pickup in the historic center of Oaxaca City, usually at 8:30am but other times can be requested. You'll start a 30-minute drive to the owner's Rancho Pitaya where the ride begins.
Toilets are available at the ranch, so you can use them before the tour begins. Receive helmets and half chaps plus a short demo of basic safe riding tips given before departing on horseback. Stirrups are adjusted to the right length and girth is tightened and then your guide leads you from the ranch directly into the protected communal lands and traditional farmlands. Virtually no vehicle traffic so you'll enjoy the path for just you and your group.
Ride through exotic forests rich in native cacti, agaves and massive elephant-foot yucca trees. Enjoy sweeping vistas in all directions.
The ride is approximately 2 hours and you won't go faster that what the least experienced rider can safely do. If you are a truly experienced rider and would like to spend some of the ride doing a rising trot and canter please request this at the time of booking and every effort will be made to meet this wish. Depending on experience and the group, the ride can be a little shorter for faster paced rides.
The guide usually takes photos of the riders on trail and can email them afterwards. After the ride, snacks and refreshments are served on the porch of the ranch constructed from traditional adobe brickwork. You will arrive back at the office in Oaxaca City approximately 4 hours after pickup.
Duration: 3 hours
