Painted Ponies Equestrian Center just outside of Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico, offers a variety of riding tours as well as lessons for riders of all ages.

Riding since the age of three, horses are in my blood. Being a child with a vision of starting something special like an Equestrian center offering horseback riding tours, student lessons and horse leasing, that dream is finally coming true with the start of Painted Ponies Equestrian center. The equestrian center is presently home to 28 horses, mostly pintos.

The Painted Ponies Equestrian Center located only 15 minutes outside of Sayulita, aims at giving student lessons, and also offers leasing for short or long term at discounted rates for horse loving residents in the area.

Arena for Jumpers & eventually boarding horses (coming soon). Plans for the not too distant future at Painted Ponies Equestrian Center just outside of Sayulita include cabins for weekend riding guests. The Equestrian center is located close to Litibu Beach which allows for 3 miles of riding. Monkey Mountain is within riding distance from the Equestrian Center. For the real Adventurist Sayulita is a several hour ride away through the jungle.

The jungle changes daily, so there is always something new to see. New sights, new sounds, & new dreams of accomplishments for the rider.

Please contact us via the form by email or telephone and we look forward to riding with you! To view our Horseback Riding Tours and Riding Lessons, please see the "More" tab above

Perfect ride!
We loved our 2 hour ride through the jungle, the village of Hevera Blanca, and the beach! What makes Painted Ponies different from other companies is a) no mixed groups, just yourselves b) you get a glimpse of life outside of Sayulita c) very attentive crew d) the horses are kept in a beautiful location, several paddocks where you can also visit miniature ponies and colts, and d) can't beat the price!

Great Ride!
We loved our ride with the Painted Ponies. We had novice to skilled riders and they accommodated everyone. We took to jungle and arrived at the beach just as the sun was beginning to set. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect ride! Jose was a great guide, and great fun!

Fantastic time
Myself, husband and daughter recently had a 10 stay in Sayulita; with my daughter being the kind of teenager that loves horses and often rides them we had to look for was someone who could take us horseback riding. We found Pat who own's Painted ponies and she set it up with my husband (Norm) for a 2 hour horse ride with two wonderful guides. Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the two gentlemen who were our guides; but I can tell you, they were the best. I had never been on a horse ever, but with the help of our guides I soon felt very comfortable, my horse was named Bella and she was so gentle, just perfect for someone who is new at riding.
The ride itself was wonderful, they took us through jungle territory and then down on the beach. The head guide, stayed back on the beach with our daughter while my husband, myself and the other guide kept riding for a while. Then our daughter and her guide galloped on the beach to reach us. It was an amazing experience for our daughter, sure wished I could do that, but just don't have the experience. I can't speak highly enough of these two gentlemen, there truly are wonderful and happy guys. Pat was there to greet us with a bottle of cold water each at the end of the ride.
I would highly recommend Painted Ponies to whoever would like to go horse riding while staying in Sayulita. Oh yes, they pick you up in town and drive to the ranch and bring you back, great time with great people.

Great family activity
We thoroughly enjoyed our outting with Painted Ponies. We have three children ages 12, 9, and 5 and none of us had any prior experience with horseback riding. Pat and her crew were very welcoming to us and made us all feel comfortable with the horses.

Pat gladly accepted our last minute request for a reservation. She met us in town at a central location, and then we followed her to the equestrian center which is an easy 15 minute drive. Once we arrived, the kids were fitted with helmets and we were introduced to the horses. We had two guides for our outting and they were very friendly and great with the kids. In addition, the horses were calm and gentle. We took a leisurely ride through jungle paths and then ended up at a lovely beach. We loved the location of Painted Ponies because it offered a peaceful ride with beautiful scenery (so many colorful flowers in bloom, tons of butterflies, and the ocean).

Our kids will definitely have wonderful memories of their first horseback riding experience!

Great service, horses and views!
Pat & John are great hosts and their guide, Jose, was amazing! Cannot recommend enough. Our group (9 adults) had a wonderful time riding the horses and seeing a different side of Sayulita.

Sweet ride though the jungle/beach
We had a private guided tour with Jose. Jose was excellent at pointing out many different species of plants, tree and birds. Our 2 hours were full of exciting views throughout the ride. The beach was empty of people and void of the concrete jungle. It was perfect!

Fantastic excursion, perfect for children
We loved our ride with Painted Ponies. They were perfectly prepared for children - with calm horses, fantastic guides (thanks Nadia and Jose!) and helmets. They took us on a ride well-suited for the kids with a jaunt through the shaded jungle and then just enough time on the beach to experience a little trotting etc. before heading back out of the sun. We went for an hour, which was perfect with a 4 and 7 year old, neither of whom had been horse-back riding before. They will pick you up in Sayulita and drive you out to the ranch and bring you back which is really handy. They also give you ice-cold water when you're done which is nice. I think overall it's excellent value for money. Also, the horses looked a lot happier in the shady, forested ranch than the ones you see waiting off the road right in Sayulita.

What a vacation!
My wife and I had such a wonderful time in Sayulita and a major part of our fantastic experience was the visit to Painted Ponies. Jose was a great guide and took us on the ride through the jungle and on the beach where Tarzan (my wifes horse) just loved to get his feet wet and my horse Mariposa loved to snack along the way, (tall grass is very tasteful, lol). It was such a great day and so much fun. Cannot wait to go back next year!

Fun Day for All
We recently spent the morning out at Painted Ponies Equestrian Center and had the best time with our children. Our three year old son fell in love with the horses and was able to ride all over the ranch on his pony. Victor, our guide gave each child a great ride and introduced them to all the horses, big and small. Our one year old who was generally afraid of the "giants", was smiling and laughing as he rode on Bellla with Mommy. Everyone learned new things about horses, the boys groomed their pony and played in the dirt for a long time. I would highly recommend this for riding tours and lessons as it is close to Sayulita, clean and fun for all ages and abilities.
Thank you to Pat and John (owners) for being there to help us enjoy the day!!
