One of our best vacation days ever! An ATV or Jeep was not a good option for our family to get to the pool. Someone mentioned we should consider horseback and when I researched, this company came up. Everyone in my family thoroughly enjoyed the tour. While the horseback was great, the time at the pool was awesome! There were crashing waves and all sorts of colorful fish. I wish I had brought swimming goggles so that I could see them underwater. The guide even took pictures of my family while we were in the water so we have captured our memories. My teenage girls enjoyed jumping off the rocks into the water.
As for the horseback riding, the horses were well behaved and easy to ride. It was very windy and hot but the views were spectacular. Definitely wear pants and a rash guard or bring lots of sunscreen. Also a good idea to bring a towel if you’re going to go in the pool.
We opted to drive our own car to the location which was very easy.

This was such an amazing and adventurous tour of Aruba and it’s national park. Our tour guides were very nice and helpful, when it comes to learning to bond with the horses make sure you listen to instructions. My horse Pegasus was in 2nd place and was ready to go. I will definitely be coming back.

This tour is a definite must for horse lovers. Their Paso Fino Horses are well trained and sure footed. The tour guides are skilled and personable, matching the riders comfort/experience level to the most appropriate equine. The views of Aruba are breathtaking, especially once you arrive at the beach.

Today I went on this horse tour while on vacation. Riding through rocky, desert terrain, beautiful white sand, and along natural pools was beyond my wildest imagination. A trip like this was on my bucket list (I am 66). The trip did not disappoint in any way. Sara the lead guide was amazing, as were all the guides. They take such amazing care of the horses, It was so much fun, and I would recommend the trip to anyone able to ride a horse!!!

Great little ranch, run by a family. The mother and son picked us up at our hotel and then the son was our trail guide. It ended up only being my wife and I who booked the Sunset Ride so we had a private ride. Rode through the National Park and all the way up to the top of a mountain where we watched the sun sink into the ocean while we could see basically the entire island before us. It was stunning.

The ranch itself has a bunch of dogs running around, a few turtles, and some other cool stuff. I truly appreciated that it was a small business and the owners were also operators and out horses were awesome. We actually got to trot at a decent speed. Our guide was friendly and informative. When we wanted to enjoy the quiet of the gorgeous landscape, he would be quiet but when we engaged him in conversation, he was informative, interesting, and well spoken. We would definitely go back again!

It was really nice riding with Rancho Loco again. Very friendly and nice people. The tour guide was funny but most of all excellent with the horses. He could also tell us some nice facts about the natural park Arikok. Riding on the beach was awesome. We stopped at the natural pool for a swim. Great experience! I would ride with them again.
