Simone was wonderful. This was very private, just for our family of 4 with Simone. The horses are not hacks. They have personality and some spirit. Two terrific part of this is that you go through areas that a tourist would not normally go to because it is not on paved roads. We had gone to the Park and saw... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the sweet Paso Fino horses with their quick gait. Took the 3 1/2 hour trail&swim ride, which took us past mangroves, flamingos and also some feral donkeys. But the best was arriving at the North end of Lac Bay and swimming with the horses. Two horses were untacked and each of us was able to swim with both,... More

The horses are well cared for, a must when I go riding. They are also well matched to the riders. We took the long ride 3 1/2 hour to the beach to swim with the horses. If you are not fit or experienced I warn you it will be very taxing. In spite of our being very experienced we opted... More

This was a wonderful experience. Simone was great with matching our three kids with their horses. Both our girls are good riders, and even our 11 year son who has only been on a horse once-had a great time riding. The ride to the bay was beautiful - seeing the wild flamingos, donkeys and parrots on the ride was quite... More

This was an amazing experience for me. Not only did we get to ride horses on the beach, we were able to swim with them!! I can't say enough good things about this place. We contacted them the day before we were hoping to take the tour and they were luckily able to accommodate us. In addition, we were the... More

This experience went way beyond expectations. We are not experienced riders, and the horses the owner (Simone) chose for us were gentle and easy going. The ride out to the water was so beautiful with changing landscapes at each turn. From a stretch of desert loaded with cactus, and another with wild donkeys, to a river full of pink flamingos...

Simone and her team were excellent with our group of 9! They made it fun, relaxing and quite the experience. Lots of fun and quite funny memories were created with our two families. Everyone enjoyed swimming with the horses. I would certainly recommend Simone and her ranch for a day of horseback riding during your visit to Bonaire.

this was one of the very very top experiences of my life. We love to ride and the horses were great and very well cared for. The owner Simone was fun as well as informative about Bonaire. Can't wait to go again.

So fun and good to discover Lac Cai with a horse! There were only the two of us and our charming tourguide Sharon. The horses looked perfect. Everything was ready for the tour when we arrived. Thank you we had a wonderful time!
