Take in the Scenery while Horseback Riding in Cabo San Lucas

The scenery in Cabo San Lucas is truly breathtakingly beautiful. Imagine what it would be like to take in that scenery while horseback riding along the beaches and canyons. Horseback riding is a popular and unforgettable experience for guests.

Who can ride?

Almost anyone can go horseback riding in Cabo! Older children, teenagers, adults and seniors can all ride the trails. The trails are guided by professionals who ensure you are ready and able to ride.

What if I don’t have experience?

Horseback riding is a fun activity for all ability levels. The experts will not only guide you, but they will also help choose the best horse for you. For someone with no experience, a quiet horse with lack of reactivity may be the best choice. To a more experienced rider, a quiet horse may seem dull. Horses are just like people, they have different personalities, and depending on your level of experience, your guide will match you with the perfect companion.

What do I wear?

Guests that go horseback riding should dress appropriately to prevent accidents or discomfort while riding. It is important to wear closed-toe shoes, such as boots or tennis shoes.  Jeans or pants are highly recommended to avoid painful saddle burn from chafing. Sun protection is also important, especially if you will be riding during the late morning or early afternoon hours. Be sure to have sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat. Jewelry should be left at the resort.  If a rider has long hair, it is best to pull it back into a low ponytail if you are wearing a helmet while riding.

You can go for an early morning ride, a day trip or even a sunset ride along the beach. Visit with the staff at Cabo Villas Beach Resort and Spa to help choose the best horseback riding experience for you and your group.  For something different, try horseback riding along Medano Beach on your vacation in Cabo San Lucas.
