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.

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.

We were there during the off season and were extremely lucky to have a ride for just the two of us. Elizabeth the owner asked pertinent questions and picked good mounts for both of us. My girlfriend was a beginning rider and I was more experienced so welcomed the horse I rode as he was a little more challenging. We... More

The horseback riding was really fun and the 2 hour ride was also a tour of Vieques with lots of info provided by our great guide Katie. Katie told us about all the flora and fauna we passed. We rode through some streets, on trails to the hilltops with great views, a little bit on beaches, and my favorite part... More

This was a 2 hour horse back ride on very well trained horses. The horses are practically on auto-pilot for this trek so while they obey your commands they know exactly where they are going. They seemed well kept and well taken care of. We went through some fields, roads, neighborhoods and a couple beaches (our guide stopped to take... More
