Amazing ride through the highland and Antonio is an awesome guide!!! Only downside the is drive from Quito to the ranch. Be aware of the 2hr exhausting long drive each way with the unavoidable traffic in Quito.


1 star rating: I do not recommend this May 2016

The trip was a major disappointment. I have submitted all the details to you. Half of the details of the trip didn't transpire as I wouldn't have booked just for the horse ride as I anticipated a lovely experience at hot springs and a lovely lunch. My horse was unruly throughout the trip.
