This was a wonderful way to spend the morning in the Oaxacan countryside. Gabriel was a great instructor and the horses were extremely friendly and very well looked after. Although I hadn't ridden a horse in 6 years Gabriel made me feel really relaxed and...More

Gabriel grew up riding in Oaxaca's intriguing countryside and knows the area well. You experienced late spring in Oaxaca, a time when the hills are filled with flowering cacti and agaves, and the native acacias trees are in bloom. Thanks for coming out riding.

An excellent way to spend a morning while in Oaxaca. We were complete beginners on a horse, but Farina is an excellent instructor. The scenery is gorgeous, and the horses are gentle and well-trained. Mary Jane is the charismatic owner who gave us a ride...More

We feel that it is very important that everyone who mounts a horse should have the basic knowledge to ride safely - a little instruction goes a long way to keeping horses cheerful about doing their job properly. So glad you enjoyed the experience.

We were 3 riders all together on a Monday in the Oaxaca countryside. The ranch was so very tastefully built nestled in a small village and tucked in with lovely cactus. The horses were beautiful and easy to ride, Mary Jane and her crew prepared...More

The Ruins to Backcountry Ride that you chose is indeed steeped in history with the cobbled camino real, the ex-hacienda de Guadalupe and the archeological site of Dainzu that reaches back to 200 B.C. You rode, and very nicely I'd like to add, young Midnight,...More

You did the Ruins to Hacienda Ride with trails that very quickly pass by big candelabra cacti and native nopal cacti both flowering now in early spring. As for the meal, Oaxacan cuisine is rated by many as the finest in Mexico, and at Rancho...More

Oaxaca has unlimited eco-travel possibilities; just as riding out of my ranch in the valley of Tlacolula is rich in massive old-growth organ cacti, a trip up to the Sierra Juarez guarantees forests of oak trees festooned with bromeliads. I love horse trekking anywhere in...More

We make it a priority to train responsive, well-behaved yet fit horses and match the horse to the rider's abilities. So glad to hear both you and your wife enjoyed the experience.

Great idea for couples or families to escape the city and enjoy the countryside. Or guide was knowledgeable and friendly, and the horses were great characters. Highly recommend!More

We have an intertwining network of beautiful trails that meander through the protected communal lands and dedicated farmlands; this lets us mix up the riding routes and keeps things interesting for both the horses and the riders. We think the horses enjoy their jobs; horses...More

We do most of our day rides in the valley of Tlacolula. The altitude of the valley floor is 1,500 meters but the mountains that ring the valley reach 3,000 meters and THAT makes for beautiful scenery. Thank you for riding with us.
