Horseback Riding in Mexico

Mexico is the land of, Mayans, Aztecs and Conquistadores with a rich cultural and historical heritage. It is easy to reach, has beautiful unspoiled countryside and the winter climate is delightful, making it a prime destination for a horseback riding vacation. This land of contrasts ranks 7th among the world’s most popular tourist destinations and has huge geographical extremes from lofty, snow covered mountains to thick jungles. The horses, tack, food and accommodations on the riding vacations we offer in Mexico are located in tranquil areas and meet the highest US and European standards. The Quarter Horses, Trakehners and Criollo crosses are well trained and riders are carefully matched to their mounts.

On the Sierra Cavalcade tour you will ride high into the surrounding mountains forested with majestic pines and ancient oaks with many places offering stunning views and there are grassy clearings ideal for canters. During the season, the trip includes a visit to one of the remote hibernating grounds of the Monarch butterflies which winter here in incredible profusion. Guests stay in the lovely home of your hosts, which is beautifully decorated and surrounded by attractive gardens where there is a swimming pool and jacuzzi. The whole operation is run with great efficiency without losing the charming Mexican flavor and you will feel like honored guests.

Rancho Puesto del Sol is located in high plains country near the mountains with vast unfenced areas where one can canter and gallop for miles.  Both experienced riders and beginners can be happy here as there are horses for all skill levels and guests can choose fast, challenging rides or shorter, quieter rides. There is an attractive, solar heated swimming pool and spa. A variety of cultural tours are available to nearby colonial towns like San Miguel de Allende with attractive shops, guided trips to Aztec sites and many other possible excursions.   A horseback ride in Mexico will give you an excellent opportunity to experience the fascinating nature of this country.
