I surprised my girlfriend with a half-day ride for her birthday, and we both loved it! The views were incredible, and Beth and her cowboy were excellent guides. The lunch at the end was much appreciated as well, as we were quite hungry after several hours on the trail. If you're considering a horseback riding adventure in SMA, Beth is... More

Definitely a highlight of my SMA visit! Beth and the ranch hands were very accommodating, and the ranch lunch was authentic and delicious! Beautiful scenery too.

My daughter and I had a lovely day-after-Christmas ride with Beth and the cowboys. The land was beautiful, of course, but I had never seen the gorgeous canyon so near SMA. After the ride, we had a delicious lunch prepared by the women at the ranch. I highly recommend it.

A Christmas morning trail riade with Beth has been our family's tradition for these last few years...and no one is ever disappointed. It helps our visiting family see the more natural side of San Miguel. Than you Beth for offering such a great treat.

A wonderful way to experience the beauty of the Mexican landscape. You're in good hands with Beth and the cowboys. She can cater to experienced riders or novice riders like me equally well. You will ride up ridges, cross streams and to the canyon aligned with cactus and kiawe trees (sorrry but that's what we call those trees in Hawaii).... More

I went on a 1/2 day ride with 4 other people in el campo (the country side). It was spectacularly beautiful and Beth, the owner, told us some great local and cultural information. I have ridden and owned a horse before and was glad to see that the horses were well cared for and all seemed happy to go on... More

Beth Kaestner and her crew of Mexican cowboys will lead you across canyon vistas, through arid, cactus-dotted grasslands, by ancient Catholic chapels (and a crumbling indigenous temple), in and out of neighborhoods of ranches and farms, much of it accessible, really, only on horseback. The team can pair beginners with the gentlest of horses, offers great coaching where needed, but... More

I had a great time riding with Beth's two guides. We rode for about a half day and then ate THE most delicious lunch at the casa afterwards. The horse I rode, Santuario, was a doll, and they were all very well cared for. If you can do this trip with a small group, I'd advise it. The views are... More

We had a group of seven ages 14 to 51 and everyone had a fantastic time! The horseback ride included beautiful scenery, knowledgeable and helpful cowboys and the horses were well mannered and responsive. The lunch was a great experience and delicious. Thank you Beth, we will be back!!

Beth is personable, charming and an excellent guide. We had a wonderful 2 1/2 hour ride through breathtaking scenery. Beth caters to riders of all levels and the horses are extremely well trained. We would highly recommend that you choose Beth.
