This was an awesome experience. My horse, Maximus gave me a hard time at first, but we became great friends by the time it was over.

Too much trotting

The start of the trail ride was fun, but we were left to ride solo, several inexperienced riders, which made for a scary return. The horses knew their way back to the ranch and most of us weren’t able to control our horse. I’m not sure all of the horses were healthy enough to be ridden.

Dear guest, Thank you for your review. We wish you had voiced your concern with us personally, that would have been of great help. Nevertheless, thank you for sharing your experience. Have a great trip back home and be safe! Warm regards from the team of Hoofs of Hope - El Paseo Ranch

My daughter was thrown from the horse as soon as she got on it, so we did not do the tour. Was not happy that we did not receive a full refund

Dear Tina, We are sorry to hear that you have not enjoyed your experience. We can understand that your daughter was scared and jumped off the horse as soon he started moving. It happens to the best of us. Hope to tour you a next time! From your friend of Hoofs of Hope - El Paseo Ranch

My husband and I had an amazing experience Horse back riding. This Ranch and what they do in rescuing horses is so admirable!! Our guide Rock was so knowledgeable and he was excellent at taking pictures at the right moment. It was my husbands first time riding a horse and he gave him a great lesson and instructions. I highly recommend this adventure for couples or small families.

Best private horseback tour
David_C
, May 2022
Our horseback riding excursion was absolutely the best! Our guide "Rock" did an excellent job gearing us up and picking out our horses. He took lots of pictures of us, went over the Aruban geography, and even let us canter by the ocean. Trying to call the guide is next to impossible as they don't have reliable phones, so your best form to get in touch is through the messaging section of the app. We had a 10:30 departure and Rock picked us up promptly at 10:30 from our hotel. This was by far the best private horseback ride ever!!!

Fun and Beautiful

It was one of the best tours I’ve been on! Our guide (Rock?) was great. Full of jokes and interesting island information. The beach was beautiful and dessert interesting. If you brought pants, consider wearing them because the cacti are no joke. We did the sunset ride which was perfect, it was cooler in the morning. On the beach the horses wanted to GO. If you want to ride fast it was a blast. If you don’t want to go you’ve got to keep them in line. Tip your guide well he says he uses it to get the horses apples with and they deserve it.

We ended up with just a two person tour through the desert and to the beach. (Not allowed to ride on the beach anymore due to government regulations.) Rock was a fantastic tour guide and took lots of pictures.

This one of the best excursions we’ve ever experienced. Our guide Rock was the best, he was very knowledgeable and very entertaining. We had a great experience and if we come back to Aruba we would definitely do this again. We highly recommend North Countryside National Park & Beach Horse back ride.

Rock, our guide, was fabulous. It was my dream to ride on the beach, but we couldn’t go on the sandy beaches. Slight disappointment, but still a very fun ride on the rocky beach. I had the crazy horse that liked to roll, but even that was an adventure. Overall, a fun morning.

Tour guide (Rock) was fantastic, we had an absolute blast! The ride was almost 2 hours, and we saw a ton of cactus and one point you can see both the East & West oceans.

Adventure of Lifetime!!!

We had a great time with Roberto (Juney) as our Tour guide! Our horses were friendly and well mannered, as beginners we were a little nervous, but Roberto was very patient and went slow. He was very knowledgeable of the areas he took us to and brought us to many beautiful scenic spots to take pictures! We just hope we get to see the pictures he took! Please email them asap. Thank you!
