Luis and Maria were excellent tour guides. This father-daughter team will ensure you get a deep appreciation of Colombian Paso Fino horse history and culture. Luis is a horse enthusiast and vet. He was able to answer all my questions related to equine health. While at the stables, they showed me all the horses there and about what makes each of them special. Luis discussed the concept of “brio” as well as diagonal back lateral horse leg movement. While riding one of the horses at the beach with Maria, she also spoke about some of the histories of the horses at the stables. The first horse I rode was such a delight! It was a smooth riding experience. He loved being in the water on a hot summer day. The second horse I rode, a mare, had brio that was a 9 on a scale of 10. Her enthusiasm and exuberance was clear as I rode her. She was also smooth to ride. The delicious lunch was grilled chicken with savory sauces, fries and coconut rice. This was my favorite experience during my vacation.
This was very fun! You can tell the owners really had a passion for horses and they were awesome hosts! We learned so much about different types of horses and their gallops and we got to meet their horses before riding. The food was provided at a nice hotel on the beach; it was delicious. We thought we would spend more time horseback riding, but it was only 1 hour of riding. Nonetheless, it was fantastic! It was a cool experience riding on the beach and in the water! Would highly recommend!
What a day !!! Incredible!!! All the love from the horses and support from the guide. First I had a save transfer and a lovely welcome. They showed me the horses and explained me all about the history from the Paso Fino horses. After a demonstration I had the chance to ride and what an amazing ride !!! Beautiful around the beach and around the area. The horses are relaxed and will give everybody support. After riding I had a delicious meal and a relaxing afternoon.
this was a wonderful experience for my husband and i. luis and his daughter picked us up and gave us a history/background of the horses at his ranch. once we went riding, they were very patient in teaching us the best way to handle the horses. additionally luis took several beautiful photos that he sent to us later. after riding we had lunch at a local hotel which was very good. i would definitely recommend this tour, and would love to do it again in the future.
Way surpassed my expectations. The guide, horses, pictures and dinner were all exceptional. You won't regret booking this tour
