There were 4 of us who have never ridden horses before. The staff matched us up with the perfect horses and were extremely patient and helpful making it the best experience ever! I am so glad we went and marked that off our bucket list. I will definitely go back and do it again with The Gold Mine Ranch!

I horseback ride at every destination that I go to, and this was by far one of the better rides! You get two hours of horseback riding for the same charge that most places charge for only one hour! You will get to do a decent amount of cantering and galloping on this ride as well, so you may want... More

Candy and Jeanette were our guides and they were just fabulous! We thoroughly enjoyed our ride and saw some spectacular scenery and views. The horses were very well behaved and are quite obviously well cared for! I would definitely recommend this company for riders of all skill levels from no experience to advanced. Thank you John, Jeanette,and Candy! Kathy and... More

This was probably the best trail ride I've been on. Couldn't have been better! The guide was fun and she led us around some pretty country, along the north shore with its large waves, walking, trotting, galloping and some riding in the ocean (OK, it was very shallow there)!. The horses were well behaved, responded to commands nicely, and seemed... More

I haven't ridden a horse since I was a kid and my husband has only been on a horse once before (for about 1/2 hour). This tour was spectacular!!!! We went first thing in the morning before the obnoxious ATV tours were on the beaches and areas. Our tour guide, Daniel (hope I spelled it right) was the best. He... More

First time in Aruba. Enjoyed the ride greatly. The guide Jeanette was super friendly and made the ride fun and enjoyable. She shared valuable facts about the region and history of Aruba.

First visit for my husband and I to Aruba. This had to be the best horseback riding adventure we ever took. The staff was so accommodating to us since it had been awhile since we had been on horseback. The horses were gentle, and the ride itself was breathtaking! I would recommend this to anyone who would like to see... More

I booked the tour for a friend and I to celebrate my birthday. I always enjoy going horseback riding when I'm away and this was one of the best I've been on. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating to different riding abilities. Although I have ridden horses since I was young, I don't ride on a regular basis so... More

Choose this company!! The BEST! I did a little research on this one because I am an experienced rider and have had horses for many years. I have been on numerous trail rides and horseback excursions in my travels. This is a small family owned business. They treat their horses with dignity and respect. I chose the private ride because... More

The staff that helped us ride were wonderful. Most of the riders had not ridden before. My granddaughter is 8 and this was her first time riding alone. The staff took good care of her and she loved the experience. Beautiful ride.
