Meet our horses
At Cabalgatas Canoa, we have a wide range of 16 fit and sure-footed horses. This means there is one to suit every rider.
We like strong and well-bred horses that do not tire on even the longest rides. Not even the rugged terrain of coastal Ecuador bothers our horses!
Are you a beginner who has always wanted to try riding? We will match you with a laid back and relaxed horse who knows exactly what they are doing. For our advanced riders we will give you a responsive horse who is forward going and enjoys their work.
Our horses vary in height from around 14 to 17 hands. We have some gaited horses, which are very comfortable if you suffer from back or knee problems.
We only use high quality equipment so that you and our horses are comfortable and safe.
Our horses are barefoot for their health and to make sure they cope well with the different footing in the jungle and on the beach.
Are you a complete beginner? You might enjoy your horse tour more if you are feeling happy and comfortable in the saddle. We offer introductory lessons with our British Horse Society trained and qualified staff. We tailor our lessons to help boost confidence and enjoyment. You are taught all of the basics of horse control and communication whilst in the confines of our paddocks.
We are horse lovers and horses are very important to us. We demonstrate this through the way that we manage, train and ride our horses. If you would like to learn more about our whole horse approach, we are more than happy to show you.
