We were a group of three female experienced riders and booked a private trip. Our guides Jeanette and Candy were awesome! Once they determined that we could indeed ride they gave us the excursion of a lifetime! We rode to the beach and went in the water several times. We went up and down steep trails, through the cactus lined... More

At first it seems like a typical follow the leader ride and even though there is a "trail" there is plenty of room for customizing your ride and the guides like everyone else in Aruba were amazing!!! The horses are well fed and behaved and wonderful scenes with plenty of photo opportunities

The crew at the Gold Mine Ranch was great. They even pick you up and drop you off from your hotel if you want! The horses were all well trained and beginner riders were safe and had a great time. I'd rate the difficulty of the trails as beginner as you aren't ale to ride very fast with the group.... More

Great day. Started off raining when we were picked up, but cleared up just in time for the ride. We enjoyed our time with Joel. He was a very good guide! Very entertaining and knowledgeable of local history. Beautiful rugged location for the ride. Very reasonable pricing. Highly recommended. We forgot to give him his tip, but our driver Janet,...

My husband and I have ridden before and we went with a couple who had never been on a horse. They selected horses appropriate to our abilities. They gave us a quick lesson which was sufficient for both the intermediate rider and the novice. Then we set off through the desert and along the water. Our guide used our phones... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our ride with Jeanette. We were able to take our time, she did not rush the ride, took the time to explain various spots along the ride and answer our questions. We cannot wait to go back and bring our children.

Picked up from our resort and had enjoyable ride to the ranch. There were 6 of us on the ride, a family with 2 school age children and my husband and I. We were assigned to horses according to our abilities. All the animals looked healthy and did well on the trails. I love to ride and was able to... More

This was one of the highlights of our stay in Aruba. The kind staff picks you up at your hotel and drops you off right back. The horses are tame and you will enjoy this even if you are a complete beginner, and you will enjoy it even more if you are a professional rider. My partner decided to take... More
