Wonderful experience not to be missed! It’s not very often you get to ride with a former olympic trainer, but that’s exactly what you’ll do here. Through the beautiful countryside and along the coast, this was one of the best Airbnb experiences our family has ever had. We would do it again in a heartbeat. Our kids will remember this forever, and you will too. In addition, Colonia is a beautiful town to spend an extra few hours or an evening afterward - Made especially interesting after a short historical tour provided by David’s company. Can’t recommend this experience enough!

It was a fantastic day in Colonia. David met us at the port and took care of our whole day. After a quick and educational tour of Colonia, we met the stars of the day: the horses. They were amazingly trained, willing to follow the instructions of the rider but also capable of taking care of themselves if the rider was distracted or incapable. When given the chance, also, they galloped with full energy while taking good care that their rider stayed on their backs. And unlike many other horses I have personally seen, they weren't fixed on running - if the rider told them to slow down, they would listen immediately and not fight it. David had also chosen the horses based on our previous riding experience which he had professionally asked for after booking, so if you have little experience, you get a more "grown-up", careful horse which will particularly look after you, whereas more experienced riders get to try one of the (as mentioned, very well trained!) youngsters. Thank you, Bianca and Cobre! The rest of the day was also as described. A plentiful all-you-can-eat loaded us with all the meat, vegetables and refreshing drinks we could need before we started our walking tour around the small and lovely city center with Nella, our guide. David was very helpful on every chance, showing us secret spots and even showing the other girl in our group the way to her hostel. He even waited for us until Nella finished the tour so we could leave our bags with him. After David and Nella left us, we spent the rest of the day wandering around Colonia and peeking at it from its old lighthouse. We wholeheartedly recommend the entire activity!

WOW! What a fantastic day. This experience was the best. I took the Colonia Express from BA, and it is very easy and well organised. David is very welcoming and explains everything very well. We had a stop at the Colonia sign for photos and able to look out across the bay. The farm we went to to meet the horses was a short drive from the town, and all was ready when we arrived. My horse, Biscuit, was lovely. He did exactly what I wanted him too - even when he kept trying to eat chunks of grass on route. The ride out along the beach was amazing (ensure you have applied sun block). The experience does exactly what it says - if you just want to walk , you walk. I you want to canter, you canter. David and his assistant look after you very well. The ride was 3 hours long, but it went by in a flash. Plenty of photo opportunities. The lunch in the town was lovely. As much food as you wanted. And as it was my birthday, David organised a rendition of Happy Birthday over dessert. Very thoughtful. The tour around the old town was well paced and informative. This really is a great experience, something a little different and memorable. Thank you David and your team, and thank you Biscuit !!!

David is friendly and extremely knowledgable. Everything about the experience exceeded our expectations and as we had two children with us it has given them something they will remember forever. We have done horse trips before but this was on a different level not least thanks to David and his whole team of wonderful Uruguyan people. Worth every penny!
