The ranch is small but nice and well-kept. The horses are healthy and the riding was great fun! I rode a Paso FIno and she was very comfortable to ride. I did the lagoon swim with a different horse, which was also fun. Bregji took pictures and sent them via email. It's a great way to see a lot of... More

My husband and I chose Bonaire for our recent vacation because he likes to dive and I ride horses. While he was out diving, I spent most of my mornings at Rancho Washikemba where I was able to take formal riding lessons with Bregje. On one of the days my husband joined me for a lovely afternoon ride out by... More

Wow ! What an experience to remember for a lifetime!! I have visited Bonaire 6 times and have always focused on Scuba. It was time to change things up a bit and what an awesome day I had. It was an all-girls trip ... myself, my sister and my daughter. A private experience for just us! The scenery was breathtaking... More

I've had horses for 23+ years and I have done many rides during my travels...but THIS was truly a one-of-a-kind experience...yeah, I've ridden on the beach and through the rain forests, but WOW, to swim in the ocean! It was amazing....my friend who isn't too horse savvy did this and she rocked it! I highly recommend it!

I always wanted to ride a horse on the beach and i finally managed! I got picked up from the hotel and we went to the ranch. My horse riding experience consisted of "been on a horse a few times, didnt fall off yet" I was given Blondie, who was a very nice and calm horse. Perfect for me. I... More

The horses are very well kept and easy to ride. The owners obviously know a lot about horses! The tour was fun. The swimming part was an unforgettable experience. Thank you!

Of all vacations and cruises I've been on, this is one of the most memorable and exciting excursions ever! My husband and I are novice riders, this was actually my first time ever on a horse. The owners were so kind, patient, and helpful as I figured it out! The walk through the desert was gorgeous and unique- like nothing... More

This was a fun ride. Thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the terrain of Bonaire in addition to riding the horses. It didn't feel like the horses were trained to do the walk and return to the barn like so many horseback riding adventures can be...the owners are extremely kind, knowledgable and experienced horse owners! My only disappointment as a rider... More

The owners were very kind. My daughter 8 years old loves horses. Every holiday we need to find a horse ranch. But swimming with a horse was so super special in an amazing surrounding. This was her highlight from thé holiday.
