  • We have a variety of breeds of varying heights. All are well trained and cared for by our team of dedicated horsemen and women. You'll be matched to a horse suitable to your riding experience and ability.

    There are plenty of opportunities to gallop in the Cotopaxi National Park, so long as the guide is satisfied with your ability and fitness to do so. At all times a certain level of safety, and our guides' judgment must be respected.

    Every rider is provided with protective headgear, which must be worn at all times during the ride for your own safety.

    Riding conditions in Cotopaxi National Park are generally good; slightly cooler than Quito due to the high altitude of the Andes.

    Small cameras are welcome on all rides as there is a photo stop. However, cameras should be securely fastened, either with a belt strap or in a zipped pocket. Cameras are carried at the riders own risk. We do not take responsibility for any loss or damage. Large or bulky cameras are not recommended.

    For the health and wellbeing of our horses and the safety of the client we have a strict rider weight limit of 100kgs (220lbs). We reserve the right to weigh all customers on the day of the ride and if they exceed the rider weight limit, they will not be permitted to ride and a full charge will apply and no refunds will be provided.

    Confident 7 year olds are welcome to join our rides. For safety reasons we do not allow children to sit with their parents on a horse – it is 1 person per horse.

    My friend and me took a 3hour ride with Omar. We had a really good impression of the horses and the route and the nature were AMAZING! However, we have a few critic points:1) The Guide Omar couldn’t speak English well. Furthermore he was on his phone a lot did not give us any information about the nature.2) The horses didn’t receive a treat after the ride. We would love to give them an apple for example. However, we really appreciate that the horses were sent back to the posture after the ride and they seemed very happy and content.3) The biggest critic point is the ride to your place. As discussed we have booked an Uber to reach your place. We weren’t informed by you or your Homepage that we can’t reach your place with a usual car. The information about a bigger car with bigger wheels MUST be on your website. Our Uber driver broke his wheels on the track and we took more than 30 Min longer than your homepage said. We’ve called Omar from the Uber and asked about the street conditions and he didn’t mention anything about it. We strictly recommend that you put this information on your website.Thanks for the amazing experience!

    I go horse riding everytime I travel and this was the best ride. Enrique was very responsive and followed up on all my emails. They picked me up my hotel in Machachi. The ride was $30 there and back. The ride itself starts at the entrance to the national park with Cotopaxi volcano getting you. If you are an experienced rider like me you would really have a blast since the guides let you roam free even if the group is not interested in galloping. The park is amazing with lots of flat areas to run in. Wild horses and llamas are on the route. Bottom line, a must do while in the area and best value for horse riders

    Highly recommend this tour, the guide was knowledgeable and the views of the Cotopaxi Volcano were stunning. As well we got to see a group of condors and the wild horses.
