Get off the beaten path and experience Vieques the way locals do; from the back of a smooth-gaited Paso horse! Everyone will tell you, there is no better way to explore the wilder side of our island. Our guided two-hour ride takes you through the hills, open meadows, woods, river bottoms and beaches of the Esperanza area. You'll even get to try out the paso (a smoother version of the trot)! We offer rides at 8:00 am and 4:00 pm; to avoid mid-day heat. The cost is $80 per person (group ride), cash only. Private tours and kid-friendly rides also available. Reservations are required and don't forget your camera!Please refer to our website for more information.

A lovely way to experience the many faces of Esperanza. Our tour guide led us through woods, town, river bed, meadows with expansive views of the Caribbean, and Coconut Beach and Playa Negro. Liz provided an informative history and description of what we were seeing. The horses are gentle paso finos which are comfortable and easy to ride. Though it's... More

Myself and 2 friends rode with Elizabeth for an amazing experience. The ride is about 2 hours long and you get to see a variety of amazing Vieques terrain - my favorite was riding on the beaches. Elizabeth is very knowledgeable and the horses are very well cared for. I highly recommend taking the tour when you are on Vieques.... More

This was my husband and mine second time trail riding. What a great way to see Playa Negra and Coconut beach! We also spent time riding thru an arroyo and up to an area with a wonderful views. Guides are very patient and informative. You can tell they love their horses!

Recently took my Mom to Puerto Rico for her 65th birthday and she loves riding horses. Esperanza was amazing. Wonderful horses and Elizabeth was fantastic. What an amazing way to see the island and some of the beautiful beaches. Highly recommend it to anyone visiting the island!

ERC is a great riding company. Elizabeth provides a great tour. It is a wonderful way to see the island, since you ride down to Coconut Beach & Black Sand Beach and up to the tops of the hills/mountains so that you see down through the valleys. We had a rain storm hit while we were riding. Although it curtailed... More

Elizabeth the owner led our ride and it was fantastic. The ride was over 2 hours, scenery was fantastic and both Elizabeth and her assistant were always keeping us informed on plants, scenery, and everything about the island. The horses were very healthy (she obviously loves her horses) and very well trained. Thanks for a great ride and I highly... More

We went on a private tour and couldn't have been more happy! They were able to schedule a ride with a private guide last min and she was so knowledgeable and friendly. We learned more about the island during this ride than in the prior two days. Views were breath taking and hires every well trained. A must do activity!!

We had a relaxing and scenic ride along two beaches, residential area, tropical forest, and hilltop overlooks. Loved it enough to do it twice!

A great day today with Elizabeth... Wonderful views on the ride. The horses were beautiful and so much fun to ride. Nice to pick up the pace a bit and will definitely do it again if we return to vieques.
