Bejeweled Ride

This ride is designed for fit, strong intermediate and above riders interested to ride long journeys. It includes two or three days of five hour ride during the week, this depending on the time of the year, with a picnic lunch served on the trail.


The location and topography of Valle de Bravo allows for a variety of landscapes where to ride.

Many trails, paths and old Caminos Reales cross the county in every direction giving horse and rider the opportunity to ride for hours enjoying the breathtaking countryside.


A selection of some of the best trails and paths that run through the beautiful pine and oak forests, meadows, valleys and villages of the area will provide the Bejeweled Trails Ride with fond memories of those who visit.
