Today I tried the art of keeping a horse between my butt and the ground..

I was really looking forward for an “exotic” horse riding experience, and Puerto Rico turned out to be more that perfect island out of all in our all the others, first of all because we weren’t in a hurry and could totally dedicate the whole day to the riding experience and explore the ranches in the outskirts of San Juan.

For our experience we chose a beautiful old ranch, with trails going through a mini rain forest, Puerto Rican farms, ponds and a little river.
