Last autumn there were quite a few posts complaining about the quality of horseback riding here. We had gone and totally enjoyed it in Nov. '07. We went again in Nov. '09. It turns out, both times we went to the same ranch. Both experiences were wonderful. I spoke to the booking agent this past time about the different ranches. They had recently changed ranches due to complaints about the one they had been using. The one we went to was Rancho Caribeno. The one they stopped using was El Pat Ranch. You should be aware, however, that the horses are not as big as we are used to at home. They appear happy, healthy, friendly, attentive, and responsive.
