Get off the beaten path and experience Vieques the way locals do; from the back of a smooth-gaited Paso horse! Everyone will tell you, there is no better way to explore the wilder side of our island. Our guided two-hour ride takes you through the hills, open meadows, woods, river bottoms and beaches of the Esperanza area. You'll even get to try out the paso (a smoother version of the trot)! We offer rides at 8:00 am and 4:00 pm; to avoid mid-day heat. The cost is $80 per person (group ride), cash only. Private tours and kid-friendly rides also available. Reservations are required and don't forget your camera!Please refer to our website for more information.

We are from Boston and there is a local show here that traveled down to Vieques and went here on a tour. After we had seen that episode, we decided we would do it while there. I am so happy we did. It was a really neat way to see Esperanza. We got to stroll down the streets, through the... More

From a scenic perspective, you really get to see Vieques in a way that isn't otherwise possible-- it's absolutely gorgeous. From a personnel perspective, Elizabeth is hilarious and personable and will make certain that you're comfortable riding your horse-- if you're a first-timer like I was-- and just have a blast, in general. We can't recommend The Esperanza Riding Company... More

So glad that we planned an afternoon ride. Elizabeth was very kind and made us feel like our safety was a number one priority. We had no problem finding this property, not because of her directions but because we put her address into our Google map. Google got us there in perfect time for our tour. The horse back tour...

My family and I had the pleasure of riding with ERC on Martha's Vineyard in October of 2015, and we hoped to have the chance to do so again. A year and a half later, we took our first trip to the beautiful island of Vieques, and we contacted Elizabeth, the owner, before arriving to arrange for another ride. It... More

It was my daughter's first horse back riding experience and she enjoyed it very much. They took fantastic care of her, even if it was a group experience. Two ours ridding and seeing the island from an other point of view. I highly recommend it

We had a brilliant experience- the horses are wonderful and the scenery spectacular. My husband had never been on a horse before and enjoyed it. We thorough recommend it- 2 hours of beautiful scenery you won't see otherwise.

A lovely way to experience the many faces of Esperanza. Our tour guide led us through woods, town, river bed, meadows with expansive views of the Caribbean, and Coconut Beach and Playa Negro. Liz provided an informative history and description of what we were seeing. The horses are gentle paso finos which are comfortable and easy to ride. Though it's... More

Myself and 2 friends rode with Elizabeth for an amazing experience. The ride is about 2 hours long and you get to see a variety of amazing Vieques terrain - my favorite was riding on the beaches. Elizabeth is very knowledgeable and the horses are very well cared for. I highly recommend taking the tour when you are on Vieques.... More

This was my husband and mine second time trail riding. What a great way to see Playa Negra and Coconut beach! We also spent time riding thru an arroyo and up to an area with a wonderful views. Guides are very patient and informative. You can tell they love their horses!
