This experience went way beyond expectations. We are not experienced riders, and the horses the owner (Simone) chose for us were gentle and easy going. The ride out to the water was so beautiful with changing landscapes at each turn. From a stretch of desert loaded with cactus, and another with wild donkeys, to a river full of pink flamingos...

Simone and her team were excellent with our group of 9! They made it fun, relaxing and quite the experience. Lots of fun and quite funny memories were created with our two families. Everyone enjoyed swimming with the horses. I would certainly recommend Simone and her ranch for a day of horseback riding during your visit to Bonaire.

this was one of the very very top experiences of my life. We love to ride and the horses were great and very well cared for. The owner Simone was fun as well as informative about Bonaire. Can't wait to go again.

So fun and good to discover Lac Cai with a horse! There were only the two of us and our charming tourguide Sharon. The horses looked perfect. Everything was ready for the tour when we arrived. Thank you we had a wonderful time!

I had the pleasure of riding with the owner Simone and a small group of other tourists. The horses are well cared for, very healthy and happy. The ranch was inviting and well maintained. I appreciated the attention given to both the horses and to the people. I couldn't be happier with my experience and will choose Horse Ranch Bonaire... More

Truly a unique experience. First we had a nice ride through a part of the south only accessible on horseback. We saw many wild donkeys and flamingos and other wildlife. Then we made our way to Lac Cai where we RODE HORSES INTO THE WATER! It was an amazing experience riding on the back of a swimming horse in such... More
