Our experience was wonderful. The horses were well trained. The tour guides were informative and pleasant to deal with, and the scenery was breathtaking. Highly recommend this excursion.
Spectacular ride over rough terrain lots of beautiful scenery,the swim pool lagoon unbelievely beautiful. Excellent guides,very safety conscientious and helpfull. Horses very well kept,clean and groomed
I had no horse riding experience before this excursion and I had a great time. Getting to see this neat piece of Aruba from horseback was such a fun experience! The sights and the natural pool were beautiful and the horses were incredibly well-trained. Our tour guide left much to be desired in terms of information and interaction, but apparently he wasn’t the full time guide.
Would highly recommend this trip. Such a beautiful way to explore some of Aruba's national park and the beauty of the island. The tour guide was fun and we enjoyed good conversation along with beautiful views as we headed toward the natural pools. The natural pools are an incredible addition to your trip to Aruba and we were able to spend some time swimming and cooling off before our trek back to the ranch. The horses were great, so well behaved and easy to ride (this coming from someone who hasn't been on a horse in probably 15 years!!). If we ever get another opportunity we would definitely do it again.
Andreas and the whole Rancho Loco team were great - fun, funny, knowledgeable, competent, and overall helped make our amazing horseback trip to the Natural Pool a special experience we will never forget. An hour each way, on Candelita and Carmelo, our rides were tranquil and serene and also absolutely gorgeous, along the beach and the crashing waves, and returning as the Aruban sun set. Can't recommend this adventure any more.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The horses were nice and well taken care of. The staff was very friendly. I’d do this over the ATVs any day! Great for beginner to expert riders. Do it! Don’t miss out!
This was such a great excursion! The guides were great and told us many things on our trip from the ranch out to the Natural Poo (which can only accessed by ATV, Jeep or horse) Weather was perfect with party cloudy skies and a very nice breeze especially when we got to the top of the mountain and 84 degrees. We had a chance to swim in the Natural Pool for about 20 minutes but we just took lots of beautiful pictures. The horses are very friendly and easy to control as this was only my second time on a horse. The views on this trip were so awesome. Loved, loved this excursion. Highly recommended!!!
This was so much fun. Scenery you won’t see on any other tour. Our guide Andreas was very friendly and informative. A ranch dog tagged along on our tour. Horses are well trained, we had no fear as inexperienced riders. You get to take in the countryside and see the goats and lambs in their habitat. I highly recommend this over a UTV tour, no experience like it. Thank you rancho loco!
