Half-Day Horseback Riding Excursion

Our half-day horseback excursion takes a total of 5 hours to-and-from San Miguel, and includes transportation, comprehensive instruction, riding lesson, 2 ½ hours of riding time + rest stops, and one delicious ranch style meal prepared right after the ride, at one of the casitas, back at the homestead. 

During the riding adventures explore a set of cattle ranches located west of San Miguel. The wonderful thing is that the main canyon of the region, the Cañada de la Virgen / Coyote Canyon, goes through the area we travel across; the landscape is extraordinary in all directions.

Our horses are very tame, obedient and smooth. Most of our customers do not have experience. Also there are several opportunities to gallop for people who require it.

   The first part of our excursion begins down in the mouth of the canyon along the edge of the river.  As we ride we will have the opportunity to cross the river at several points which is always great fun! Throughout the ride those who wish to have some exciting gallops will have severals oportunities to do so.
 After the rest stop we continue on our trusty steeds up-and-out of the canyon until reaching it's spectacular cliffs. Here we make a pause on our horses in order to take some completely spectacular photos. It is also here that whoever wishes to will have the opportunity to rappel off the sheer 150 foot-high cliff faces! 
 Then we continue over the plains and amongst the cattle.  After a short while we reach a further edge of the canyon and begin a 40 minute descent to it's rocky bottom, where we once again find the winding river named La Virgen which we will continue to cross at several more points.  
Finally, we will be awaited by a delicious traditional ranch style meal. The menu includes fresh cheese and organic beans from the same ranch, quesadillas, nopales, rice, fresh salsas, guacamole and salad, among other typical dishes.
