Mexico Horse Vacation

Relaxed Ride

Relaxed Ride

This ride is designed for intermediate and above riders that do not want to ride more than three hours per day and that want to have more leisure time to enjoy the facilities of the finca or have more time to explore town.


The location and topography of Valle de Bravo allows for a variety of landscapes where to ride. The different microclimates found within this region enable visitors to see different vegetation and ecosystems that usually cannot be found near each other. 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 views of the 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 Relaxed Ride with fond memories of those who visit.
