Horseback riding is a great way to see the sleepy island of Vieques. The horses were bred right on the island and trained to lead visitors on a tour like no other.

Offerings and Cost

Tours are a two hour loop through the woods, rivers, hills, meadows, and beaches of Esperanza focusing especially on areas that cannot be reached by car. Tours consist of no more than 12 riders. Because small children should not and will not ride alone for safety purposes, they offer a Pony Ride on the friendliest horses which lasts 15 minutes right after their morning tours, or join the Family Farm Ride.

The Group Tour Ride costs $80 per person and Private Trail Rides cost $125 per person. The Pony Ride costs $20 and the Family Farm Ride costs $30 per person. All prices are in USD.

Cash is the only mode of payment accepted and all bookings can be made directly on their website.

What to Expect

Though they are located close to Esperanza, the island is small enough for anyone on Vieques to join in the fun.

Hours and Policies

Tours leave daily at 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. so that guests can avoid mid-day heat. Please note that advanced reservations are a necessity.

Children must be over the age of seven to ride, and have some prior saddle experience. All riders must weigh less than 225 pounds. Long pants and closed-toe shoes are recommended.
