Cartagena: Beach Horse Ride and Colombian Horse Culture

1. Cartagena: Beach Horse Ride and Colombian Horse Culture

Ride a horse along a scenic beach in Cartagena with a bilingual, English and Spanish-speaking guide. Find out about the local Colombian Paso Fino horse breed, and enjoy a small-group experience for no more than 6 people. Begin your activity with hotel pickup in Cartagena and get transferred comfortably to the ranch. Upon arrival, listen to an in-depth explanation about the Colombian Paso Fino, see how well the horses are cared for, and watch a demonstration of what they can do. From there, you'll be taken to the beach and paired with the perfect horse for your experience level, whether you've never ridden before or are an expert rider. Set off on your ride along the beach, and feel the smoothness of your horse's gait — paso fino means fine step. Disconnect from everything and tune in to the sound of the waves. Enjoy the sea breeze on your face, and have your photos taken by your guide so you can just focus on having an amazing time. After a couple of hours, you'll be taken to a beachfront restaurant where you can enjoy the ocean and sun while lunch is served before you are taken back to your hotel.

Luis and his team were absolutely fantastic. The customer service, the explanation of the types of horses and their gaits, and the ride along the beach was outstanding. Luis took beautiful photos and videos throughout the experience, and delivered them to us within hours of the experience. It was really neat learning about the horses, seeing their (very well maintained) living conditions, and learning more about the history of Paso Fino horses. Thank you again for a wonderful time! A must-do in Cartagena.

This was an AMAZING experience! Luis and his friends are really knowledgable about the horses and will be with you the entire step if you need them! This was the first time riding and I felt very comfortable! They will even give you your own freedom to ride also! Luis will also take video/photos of you as well & give you BEAUTIFUL edits for memories! Overall, I couldn't have ask for a better experience! 1 100% recommend this!

Luis and his daughter Maria runs the ranch. We love their passion and energy and love for the horses. This was the first time we've seen Paso Fino horses and it was great learning about their history. These horses are very special and unlike any other horses we've ever ridden before. The restaurant they took us to after was very delicious also. Over all one of the best things we've done here in Cartagena

Amazing time. The guides were wonderful and super nice and helpful. The horses were beautiful and a great ride. The food was fantastic. The whole experience was one I will never forget. I highly highly recommend to all.

These are some great tour guides whom know their craft, real well!
