This was a great 1/2 day excursion. We did a leisurely ride through the owners private property and then had a full tour of the ruins. The guide was great and it was a lot of fun...even though it rained almost the whole time.

My tour was off to a great start with "ranch-hand" Terri picking me up, she's so personable! Then it only got better with Santiago leading the way to Xunantunich. We talked the whole time from politics, plants, history, and laughs in between. The handcranked bridge with the horses was too cool. At the ruins, had Amir as a guide. He... More

This trip to Hanna stables was really the highlight of our expedition to Belize. We got so much for our money. A wonderful lunch, a wonderful private guided tour of Xunantunich ruins and so much wildlife on horseback. Our guide Jimmy really took our horsemanship up a notch with this trip. We had done flat ride stuff before in Arizona... More

Went with visiting friends on horseback ride to Mayan temple / ruins. Beautiful ride down the river then tour of the site followed by great lunch. Our guide William is an amazing young man beyond his years. Can't think of one thing to say on the downside. Just a great relaxing day with amazing nature, culture and host.

Through our hotel Ka'ana resort, we got the opportunity to ride horses with Jimmy along the river. Horses were well trained and great for first time riders, great way to see the countryside and the ruins.

What an incredible day's adventure for my wife, myself and our 10 year old grandson. The day started early with transportation from our room at the Vanilla Lodge (also great!) The driver took us to the stables where Santiago, the owner, and his assistant Devon, fitted us out for the ride. After a gentle hour+ horseback ride, we arrived at... More

We booked a ride here from Black Rock Lodge and had a wonderful time. Santiago was so knowledgeable abot the area and the birds that we say it made our day.

We wanted to see the ruins and this was a way to incorporate a nice horseback ride at the same time. This tour is so complete and Hanna Stables is amazing. We were lucky enough to have the lead horse trainer Jimmy as our guide thru the woods. The last time I was on a horse it threw me and... More
