What a fun way to see the natural terrain of Aruba, on horseback in a group with no more than 10 guests.
After your transfer from downtown to the stables and a safety briefing, you will be assigned a horse and head out on a trail ride through the "Cunucu," or Aruban countryside.
As this tour does not cross streets or include galloping, it is a perfect ride for children or beginners. Helmets are also provided.
One sure highlight of the tour is the visit to the hidden lagoon, where the local residents - donkeys, iguanas, parakeets and more - can be spotted. You will see that many of them like having their picture taken. The total ride time is approximately one hour.
Due to the tropical climate, the horses in Aruba are much smaller than the horses in the USA or Europe. The following horse types can be found: Paso Fino, Trocha, Trotton, and the South American Quarter Horse.
The ranch was nice and clean well maintained. The guide was a local and had lots of interesting information

We were picked up on time by Max of Rancho Notorious and taken to his family's ranch. Part of the group was there to ride ATVs (brand new) while the rest went on a horse ride through Aruba's desert-like vegetation. It was a fun cowgirl adventure in the Caribbean! Max matched our respective riding experience to the horses on the ranch. We all felt safe and enjoyed our ride of approximately an hour. On a future trip we might go on a longer ride but we have fun memories of our ride.
Excursion was just as advertised. Our guide Max was great with the guests and horses.
Great time and amazing people
This was a good experience
