My boyfriend is an absolute beginner - had never been on a horse before - but the two hour trek was suitable for him, we did the entire thing at a walk and his horse was beautifully behaved. So if anyone is hesitant because of their lack of exercise, don't be. Yojan was very helpful during our conversations via email... More

A friendly and professional horse riding company with unique, well-trained Paso horses. I think these rides are well worth it just to experience the gait and response of Peruvian Paso horses alone. Johan, the owner, has trained them very impressively - they responded to small hand gestures alone and were smooth to ride. We had booked in advance and went... More

We (absolut beginners) went horse riding (the 2 hours tour) with Yojan. The horses are very well trained. We are allowed to ride by ourselves and it proved to be big fun and no risk. Yojan is very knowledgeable about the horses and the country side. You get helmets and horses according to your skill. Highly recommended and enjoyable!

On August 08/25/2016 I was picked up on time at my hotel in Cusco and driven to Hacienda Del Chalan in Urubamba. There I met Yojan, his lovely wife and daughter. I was provided with a saddle bag and a snack before receiving a short introduction of Peruvian Paso horses and how they are moving differently and need to be... More

I went riding all day with Yojan and it was a blast. We first went to salinas salt ponds and then to moray. The horses are well cared for and easy to handle, the owner is very friendly and taught me how to ride properly since it was my second time. If you like horses you are guaranteed to enjoy... More

We had a great experience with Yojan. A private ride for 8 hours, passed the salinas and several different beautiful sceneries. We were all by ourselves for 95% of the ride. Yojan is passionate and extremely knowledgable about the areas, the horses and also the history of the country. This is a day that has been very special out of... More

Very good 4 hour round trip to salanas salt flats with tips on horse riding as well as lots of short stops for the guide to explain recent and older history. Lovely husband and wife pair who run this. They care a lot about the horses and know the places very well. Website and booking were also very easy. Overall,... More

My 8 and 10 year olds were guided by a couple of the helpers, so there was no concern about the horses getting away from the kids on their first ride. Yojan was absolutely fantastic as a guide on our 2 hr ride, telling us about both ancient and modern culture. And of course the mountain views were stunning. My... More
