Horseback riding

One has to ride and gallop to realize that a magical coupling occurs there. For a few seconds, it gives the impression that both bodies – that of the human being and that of the horse – become one; that is one of the great rewards of the ride. Even better if you have around the fascinating Andean landscapes, where the ascents and descents take us to completely different shows in less than a day.

For those travelers who love adventure, there is nothing better than enjoying, from the back of the horse, the majestic landscapes offered by the Avenue of the Volcanoes in Ecuador, sheltered by a traditional and heavy poncho.

Not only in the mountains there is this affinity for the horse, but also in the Pacific Coast. The geographical diversity offered by Ecuador makes it an ideal destination for the horse-loving traveler or those who want to ride through the Andes.

Nowadays, the horseback rides are for tourist and festive purposes, in which one can enjoy the observation of beautiful landscapes with snow-capped volcanoes, forests and Andean baldlands. For these reasons, Ecuador is the ideal destination for exciting horseback riding.
