I have ridden several times with Astrid and her amazing horses!

Your happy place? Then this wonderful review can only belong to one very special person, who has been here so many times that she has seen it all!

I just returned from my Holiday with Green Horse Ranch. I've been on many Riding Holidays through out Europe and I rate this ride as one of the best! I was invited on the the trip with a co-worker who had done all the planning. I had no idea what to expect. It was my first time visiting South America.... More

We visited Astrid and her Horses on one of our days in Quito. I had done several horse trips in Ecuador before but this one defenetly ranks amongst the highest.

Our last day in Quito was “on our own” so we booked a horseback ride with the Green Horse Ranch. We had a blast. We were picked up in front of the Magic Bean coffee shop (about 10 minutes from the JW Marriott hotel) and transported to the Pululahua volcano natural reserve. Then we went down and down into the...

Spent the day with Astrid and her wonderful horses. I've not ridden for years and consider myself to be a novice, the ride was brilliant with some very exciting sections cutting a trail through the pululahua volcano crater. The horses are extremely well looked after and are so sure footed! Transport to and from Quito was included in the price... More

Astrid, the owner, doesn't immediately come across as the feel-good hospitality provider but don't let that fool you. She makes you feel completely welcome and her German-based attention to details made this trip one of the best ever for my daughter and me. Astrid left no detail undone and was the most gracious person to spend three days with while... More

I did the Pululahua Crater ride which was a full day ride from Green Horse Ranch. My horse Smeagol was lovely, well looked after and a pleasure to ride, we had plenty of good canters! The guide who took me out was lovely and the scenery was spectacular. This is a must do if you are in the area.

I was searching for an Andes ride in Ecuador and the description on the Green Horse Ranch website looked very appealing. A bit of a worry first if there would be another participant, because I would be travelling alone, but soon came the liberating email of Astrid that a British woman would join me on the ride. I've done long... More

My girlfriend and I tried to find a last minute ride and Green Horse Ranch replied to us very quickly booking us on a day tour the next day. We were beginners, one completely so, and thought we might go walking about down in the crater for a while. Instead, we went on a real journey through small steep roads... More

Wonderful, from the very first email interaction I could not be more pleased. Astrid was incredibly helpful above and beyond the Ranch experience, even arranging airport transfer for me the following day. The ride was amazing, challenging, fun and exciting. The scene is breathtaking. The Volunteers / guides are friendly and knowledgeable, beautiful very well cared for horses and property.... More
