Great for those who don't want to only walk on horses
kathryn_t
, Aug 2022
I LOVED this experience!!! Chose it because my sister and I didn’t want to only walk slowly on horses. WE don’t ride often, pretty much only on trips but are comfortable with varying speeds, though we don’t have lots of experience or general knowledge Max, our guide, was really kind and made sure we had a great experience. The horses were lovely and well cared for. Max let us trot, canter, and gallop and gave instructions throughout when needed. The beach was STUNNING and exactly what I had hoped for. Would have done this everyday of my vacation if I could have. Recommendation-long pants and if you bring a water bottle, make it a smaller one so it fits into the bag on the saddle. Sunglasses and a phone for pictures is all you really need.

Wonderful riding experience in Aruba
Maria_S

My family and boyfriend and I did the advanced tour in order to actually ride. I grew up riding horses and didn't want to walk nose-to-tail. This tour was really great for this. We had 3 other people with us so it wasn't too big of a group and we did lots of trotting and cantering throughout the Aruban desert and beach. Our guide, Max, was very nice and thoughtful. Although he was a little late to start us off he made sure we were prepared and had horses that fit our abilities (I rode Victoria and she was amazing!!). The ranch was in great condition and the horses were clearly well loved and taken care of; as well as the cute dogs! Overall, I highly recommend this tour to everyone who has riding experience!

Fun gallop on the beach!

Nestor and Pilo picked me up across from the cruise port ON TIME! Both were very pleasant and friendly. We picked up other guests who were doing a one hour ride and arrived at the ranch in plenty of time. Nestor said he usually takes the advanced riders out but he had to take the bigger group out so Pilo rode with me. I rode Vicki, aka “ Victoria Secret “. She was very well behaved and LOVED going fast which is what I really wanted. Pilo did an excellent job showing me around the island and giving me plenty of opportunities to gallop. I highly recommend this tour….you won’t be disappointed. Thanks so much Nestor and Pilo. I will definitely come back to visit next time I’m in Aruba.?

Must Do Experience in Aruba
Amy_E

Whatever you do, don't leave Aruba without experiencing this incredible horseback ride offered through Rancho Notorious. Nestor, our guide, was AMAZING....and it was something my daughter and I will definitely remember for the rest of our lives. He was so helpful and kind, and he even sang for us as we rode, after we learned he had a wonderful voice! My family tries to ride in every location we travel to....but this trip, by far, was our very favorite. The scenery along the way was breathtaking, and Nestor let us dismount several times to take in the surroundings. The horses were loved and well cared for, and the two hours flew by so quickly. Don't even hesitate....book this experience immediately. You will not regret it!

Nestor is an excellent guide. As an experienced rider and horse owner I really enjoyed this ride. I rode Nestor's own mare, Pamela Anderson and she was awesome!! Thank you, Rancho Notorious for a great day!!

Horseback riding through the deserts of Aruba!
Christine_R
, May 2022
The whole adventure was amazing. From being picked up from our Airbnb to getting to know the horses and beginning our journey, we had a blast. There was 4 of us who went on this adventure and the horses that were selected were very well-behaved and trained. If you wish to see more images and videos, check out Fanta and Darwin on YouTube ( This was the title of the episode they recorded for the horseback riding trip: Horseback riding through the deserts of Aruba!) If you bring a drone, there is an open area closer to the ocean view to release it. Just be mindful that the horses don’t often see drones so one may get hesitant. Make sure to check with the guide for safety purposes. We used a drone and it captured some of the amazing trails.

This was one of the BEST riding adventures we have ever been on! Galloping along the beautiful blue coast line of Aruba was amazing. The views were absolutley breathtaking. Our guide Nestor was such a blessing. He took care of us from beginning to end. You can tell his love for horses goes beyond words which made it so much fun! This tour is a must! 5 stars and more!

The Perfect Day in Aruba!!!
Anthony_M

Over the years, I have been on numerous horseback riding excursions and this one by far was the best!!!! Nestor (our guide) was friendly and professional and chose a horse to fit the needs of the rider. The horses were well-kept, happy, and healthy and Nestor took us over breathtaking paths which lead to the ocean. This was the highlight of my vacation!!!! I will definitely be back next time I'm in Aruba.

Nestor was an amazing guide. The horses are healthy and well cared-for. The ride was beautiful- many magnificent views of Aruba, seeing two shores at once, a magnificent beach.

Had a great time! Nestor was great with all levels. He gave me a few quick tips and I was able to gallop. He also helped my husband who stayed behind trotting and taught him several things and made him feel comfortable. It was fun. I had an amazing time! The horses were great they knew the route so well. Would def come back and do another!

Absolute Perfection
RachelleFreeman
, Dec 2021
This was truly a remarkable and memorable experience. Nestor picked us up timely, took us back to the ranch, and (after filling out quick paperwork) off we went. My daughter picked the 7am time slot, and I’m very glad she did. Watching the sun rise over the terrain was exceptionally beautiful. Our ride was filled with much galloping, which made us both happy. It’s so hard to do rides outside of home when you’re stuck walking and bored. This was exceptional. We loved it so much that we booked a second ride later that week with the rest of the girls from our family, including my 6-year old daughter. Nestor had a double saddle that she and I rode on together, and the others were able to ride in front of us, while she and I poked around a bit at a slower pace. Both riders were absolute perfection.

Nestor was a blast to ride with! He absolutely loves the horses & knows them all so well. It was cool to talk horsemanship with him too. The horses all got baths after the ride, so we talked about what I do for my horses and had some nice convos about horses. I got to ride Pamela, she was great. She knows her job! She could have guided the trail herself I’m pretty sure, though there’s 7 different trails to ride. Awesome scenery! My novice bf & parents even got to do some trotting and cantering. Proud of them & grateful for Nestor’s guidance.

Climbing to the top of the mountain and having a panoramic view of the Island was amazing. Going down to a cove at the ocean’s edge was equally wonderful.

Nestor was absolutely amazing! He takes care of his horses and this is the only farm that advanced riders actually can enjoy on the entire Island. I would suggest the 5:00pm tour so that you can ride into the sunset.

Best Horseback Tour In Our Lives
Daniel_B
, Jul 2021
11/10 Stars 1. Horses were super well taken care of. Healthy happy and well mannered. Nestor, our guide has been here for 14 years and showing/raising/riding for 20+ 2. Safety was baller. Nestor was respectful of how to engage canter and trotting. Super in the control of everything. 3. Don’t be fooled by the rocky dirt road in, this is Aruba not Gatlinburg. 4. Nestor was hilarious, friendly, engaging. We did a private tour, and highly recommend for couples. SO WORTH THE EXTRA MONEY. The walk on the beach and pictures were such a classy touch. 5. I asked Nestor where the best Arrepas on the island were, since he is originally from Venezuela. He said, my house!! And his wife has delivered 3 homemade arrepas and 3 cokes after the tour. Literally made the trip so much better than it already was. 5. Tipping is optional but I highly recommend it. These guys do 3 tours a day, 365 days a year, and LOVE HORSES. Ask for Nestor and arrive 15 minutes early!!
