Horseback Riding

Several ranches and stables throughout Puerto Rico provide opportunity for locals and tourists to experience many pleasant adventures on horseback. Imagine yourself riding along one of our beautiful beaches, or winding trails through tropical forests, and mountain paths.

 

Adults must be in good physical condition to ride. Other restrictions may apply for small children.

Racetrack

If you are looking for a good horse to bet on, or you just like to watch fast thoroughbreds compete, then you need to visit the Comandante Racetrack, in Canovanas. They're open Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays for your sports pleasure.

Horse Events

Puerto Rico's Paso Fino Horse dates back some 500 years to a time when the Spanish ruled over the land. Horses were transported from Europe to the Island and eventually developed into the unique breed we see today.

 

The Paso Fino is regarded as the most graceful riding horse in the world. The steed is famous for its unique gait, a style that can not be matched anywhere in the world. Currently, over 7,000 Paso Fino Horses live on the Island.

 

Paso Fino competitions are held at several locations around the Island. A familiar category is the Bellas Formas or beauty contest. Another category is the Paso Fino event in which the horses are run through a series of trials to demonstrate its skills.

 

Two well know horse events include the Dulce Suefio fair which runs in early March in Guayama, and the Festival La Candelaria which is celebrated in early February in Manatí.

Polo

If you're interested in Polo, then the Ingenio Polo Club may just be the thing for you. Located in Carolina, it's the first Club on the island associated with the sport of polo. Members play on 25 acres field against a background of rolling hills and forests.
