I reviewed Ravenscroft initially after a couple of rides with them, but I continued visiting for so long after that, it merits a further review. I lived in Antigua for three months and having met Fred and Paula, decided that I would learn to ride...More

Promised the proprietors - Fred actually - that I would call them colorful rather than eccentric. Don't go if you're thin-skinned and expecting a gallop. Do go if you enjoy people even if you don't always agree with them - they're unapologetic Trump fans -...More

We had the best time at Ravenscroft Riding Stables. The horses are incredibly well taken care of (which is amazing, considering they all have had a traumatizing past), and just seeing that is worth the visit in itself. My boyfriend is an inexperienced rider, and...More

Fred and Paula are incredibly kind-hearted people that take the best care of their horses and many other animals. My husband and I had a great ride with Fred around the picturesque surrounds of San Juan del Obispo- travelling through coffee plantations, fields being worked,...More
