Our tours are private tailor-made tours for intermediate and advance adult horse riders and they are full package tours. The size of the group should be between 2-4 people.

We design and lead the tour all the time in order to maintain the standards of Ridingcolombia.


Private tailor made 3 days

We pick you up in your hotel in the morning and we will travel by car for around 3 hours to a hotel outside of Villa de Leyva town where we will sleep all the nights. During this travel, we will visit the place where was the battle of independence of our Country in 1819. Also we will eat a typical “arepa boyacense”. We will take lunch and then the horse ride will begin. We are going to explore the mountainous area of the Raquira Region, located at 2300 meters above sea level, with temperatures between 18 and 24 centigrade during the day, normally dry weather, with rainy weather on some days. There are many small and adventure trail going up to the top of those mountains. We will pass through oak forest and brooks. During the rides we will see beautiful landscapes of the mountain range and the valleys of Villa de Leyva, Raquira and Tinjacá. We will visit a typical rural small town (San Miguel de Sema). We can visit the church and the typical construction and we can eat some goodies. We use to ride a faster than the rides in Europe and USA. We do a lot of canter but not very much gallop. We will ride for about 3-4 hours. Read more

Itinerary 2nd day

After a good breakfast and a 30 minutes ride by car we get the place where the ride will begin. Today we are going to go up to the mountains range, taking different dirty roads or trails- We will pass through oak forest and brooks. Close to the top of the mountains we can see behind and watch beautiful landscapes. After we cross the mountain range, a new valley is open to our view to observe from the top of the mountain the Fúquene Lake. Until the 1970’s Laguna de Fúquene was Colombia’s largest lake. Today only 3,000 hectares are left from the originally 10,000 hectares because the flat lagoon was dried or filled with land to gain acreage for agriculture and stock farming. We will stop here to enjoy the landscapes, to let the horses rest, eat snacks and to rest a little bid. After the arrival we will have a tardy and succulent lunch. After the lunch, if you are tired, we can go back to the hotel or we can do a short visit to Villa de Leyva. Villa de Leyva is the small town that better preserves memories of old colonial times and expresses the best of Spanish influence. It was founded in 1572 and built according to Spanish architectural norms. Even the location of the city (in a valley) seems to be an emotional encounter of the New World with places from Spain.

I worked with Hernando to customize the perfect three day, two night trip for my husband and myself during our honeymoon in Colombia. He was incredibly responsive and professional throughout the weeks and months leading up to our trip. The trip itself was an amazing experience and highly recommended for anyone who is serious about horses. The ride was exhilarating and kept a fast pace through the beautiful country side and rural roads. The horses and the ride were not your usual nose-to-tail type. As mentioned in many other posts there was a lot of cantering as well as creek crossings. The ride also provided such a unique way to see rural Colombia as you pass through homes and workshops. The hospitality and food were also quite a delightful experience. And Hernando, himself, is such a treat to converse with. He is very knowledgeable across many topics and a great resource in learning more about Colombia. Read more

Theresa, United States

Hernando took very good care of us riding and hiking the paramo. The horses are well trained with good tack. The Colombian countryside is stunning especially from the seat of a saddle. The food was especially delicious with Hernando making sure we got local fresh fruits at every opportunity, which is such a nice extra touch. Thank you Hernando for a memorable trip. Read more

Robin , Canada

Utterly fantastic. The horses and the riding were incredible. Definitely tailored for advanced riders, we tackled rough terrain, steep switchback trails, and it was all through some of the best scenery we saw in Colombia. We cantered for long stretches, as well as a hand-gallop or two. Then stopped at a cantina in the middle of the mountains for a beer! Heaven. Hernando is a terrific guide, he obviously loves the horses and the country very much. He picked us up at the apartment where we were staying in Bogota, and dropped us at the airport (very patiently grinding through the terrible Bogotano traffic!). We stayed at a farmhouse in Samaca, and it was lovely, and the food was delicious. If you are a rider, this is a must, and arguably reason enough to go to Colombia! Read more
