Green Horse Ranch

...your horseback operator in Ecuador since 1995

Moonshine Ride - (1 day/ night)

Since 2010, Green Horse Ranch also invites you to join their special dusk- and night rides through Pululahua crater, which will allow you to deeply capture the magical spirit of this unique geographical area. Visit a living volcano at sun-set, follow the echo of a donkey's call rolling along the crater walls before all animals go to sleep and only night-frogs sing their song.

As our path slowly winds into darkness and dense mists, fire-flies start lightening the sky, like stardust falling down on us. With your senses sharpened by dark, this ride will be a totally different experience and shall build up deep trust between you and your horse.

We'll be leaving Quito at 4 pm in order to get on our horses at dusk and start riding into slowly falling darkness. Eventually, only moonlight will be guiding our way. A cozy dinner-place is awaiting you at the end of the ride. Accommodation, breakfast in bird garden and return trip the following morning.

If you want to keep on riding the next day, you can of course extend your trip with us. Let us know.

Note: If you're also planning on visiting Mitad del Mundo or Mindo Cloudforest during your stay in Ecuador, you should try to combine these activities with your horseback ride with us, as it's in the same direction. After your visit, we can drop you off at the entrance of Intiñan Solar Museum or hand you over to your Mindo operator of choice half way between Quito and Mindo, avoiding annoying extra travel days from and to Quito for you.
