I really loved my ride and Farina is a great guide. She‘ll tell you a lot about the landscape, customs und vegetation and she is also a fantastic riding coach! I hadn’t been on a horse in about 15 years and they let me ride...More
we did the half day trek and thoroughly enjoyed it. They are well deserving of all the 5 star ratings. For a very novice rider like myself I found it a breeze. I highly recommend this as a great way to get out and see...More
I visited with my teen son and we had a wonderful couple of hours trekking through an incredibly unique biome complete with towering cacti, fragrant copal trees, and gorgeous vistas of the Oaxaca valley. The horses were well trained and we had fun and learned...More
My partner is a beginner rider and said that this was the first horse he'd ever ridden who was actually responsive, and made him feel like he was doing 'proper riding!'. Our guide was lovely and had incredible knowledge about the local fauna, flora, farmers...More
We are happy to hear that you found our horses responsive. All the guides at Horseback Mexico spend time individually training our horses to keep them obedient, balances and responsive even for novice riders.
We had a great experience with calm and well-trained horses. Our guide was really nice and tought us interesting stuff on the landscape! Definitely recommended!
We make a point of giving enough practical riding tips to aid, even notice riders, to a safe and enjoyable ride as well as a means of safeguarding for our horses a comfortable, gentle work environment. So glad you had a good experience.

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.
