Our horseback riding tours are a timeless way to see Oaxaca. Saddle up for adventure, experience traditional culture, see up-close the exotic nature Oaxaca is renowned for. Regardless of experience, time or budget, there’s the perfect ride on one of our small, personalized tours.

Get an insider’s view of Oaxaca. All rides are personally guided by owners Mary Jane Gagnier and her son Gabriel. Together they bring decades of experience exploring the ancient “camino real” system from village to village. They’re rediscovered forgotten mountain passes and found enchanted hidden trails.

Combine horseback riding with an authentic ranch stay at Rancho Pitaya, built in the center of exotic native cacti and rare Tepeguaje trees. Apart from the horseback riding, there is world-class hiking from the ranch and fascinating sightseeing on the complimentary bicycles.

Take a video tour of our Ranch Ride in Oaxaca Valley and Foothills . Endless vistas and exotic plants, plow oxen and horse-drawn carts, towering cacti and agave plantations are just a sample of the visual delights that await you in the saddle. There are half-day, full-day and overnight rides to choose from.  Get off the tourist track and experience an authentic Oaxaca from the unique perspective of the back of a horse.
