I had an incredible time on this adventure! I definitely was not expected to walk away thinking, "this has been one of the most amazing things I've done in my life". It was really easy to book online and saved me $10. It's helpful for them if you note your experience level and any specific instructions, like what lobby or... More

My wife and I took a private horseback ride with Gold Mine Ranch. The scenery (choppy ocean, beaches, desert, mini-natural bridge, blowhole, etc.) was beautiful. We enjoyed the ride but our guide kept insisting that we kick our horses, and kick them harder and harder to go faster. We tried, but had little success. We explained many times that the... More

A nice ride through beautiful area with friendly guides. Pros- great instructions on how to ride, nice views, experienced and helpful guides, match riding skill to the horse's temperament, handcrafted-framed photo at the end can be purchased for $15, friendly place Cons- rough weather kept us from riding in the ocean (not their fault), a couple of the horses misbehaved...

Aruba was one of the stops on our caribbean cruise. I booked a horse riding tour independently of the trips that the ship offered as I have always wanted to ride a horse in the sea. We were picked up right on time, as arranged, near to the cruise terminal, and taken to the ranch where we were asked about... More

This was a great family tour. They picked us up and dropped us off at our location. They were all very friendly and helpful. The horses were well maintained, all was ready upon our arrival. Really liked that they went over safety before our ride. Our tour ended up being just six and all adults, I mention this as we... More

This was by far the best thing I did. You get incredible views of the Aruban desert and the ocean. The horses were so well trained and so fun to ride. If you've never ridden a horse before thats ok, they follow the tour guide and can stay in a line for you. This was an experience I will never... More

Prior to this, no one had experience riding a horse. We were a little nervous to go, but it was well worth it. Through the two hour tour, the tour guide gives great information on the surrounding land. You travel by the water, through the hills, and even in the desert for a little bit. The horses may seem daunting... More

After a call to their office we booked a morning ride for our granddaughter, my wife and myself via their webpage. We received a response on time with all the details on the ride and location. We made the ride with a group of 9 and 2 guides. First time on a horseback ride for our granddaughter (age 9) who... More
