My wife and I had an EXCELLENT time riding with Don Villagardo and Villagardo Jr. They were so kind, considerate, friendly, and welcoming. You could tell they take care of their horses and they try to match each rider with the right horse based on their level of experience and personality. The ride was beautiful, beach fun, and they did a great job sharing with us the story of La Misión town and people. Last but not least, they provided super helpful driving directions for us, allowing us gringas to drive safely and successfully from Tijuana to La Misión. I highly recommend this experience and look forward to riding with Villagardo again!

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved this experience. We met up with a small group of about 4 others and Villagardo and his family. They taught us the basics of riding and found a horse suitable for our experience levels - my bf has only been on a horse once and I’ve only been on a handful of times but the horses are super used to the trail and beginners. You get to go through creeks, trails and to the beach. It was pretty magical. Villagardo and his family are so kind and make you so comfortable and told us stories about the history of the area and the local culture there which is very horse centric. He also talked to us about local food recs and his family gave us some local beach recs which we will definitely be checking out. More advanced riders were able to try cantering along the beach. But the horses mostly like to keep a nice steady pace which is great for non experienced people like me :) the family is along with you the entire way making sure you’re doing okay and the horses are okay. It’s nice because you can still learn yourself or coast along with the horses and group. Next time we come to the area we will def be coming back :)

This experience was lovely. Villagardo was very friendly and helpful. It was my first time riding and I was nervous but Villagardo made me feel comfortable and safe. Throughout the trail he shared some of the land’s history and even took some really great photos. I am definitely recommending this experience to friends and family. I hope to come back soon!

Terrific experience! My first few hours in Mexico, and it was a pleasure to ride around La Misión. We had riders of all different experience levels from beginners and beyond. It was awesome to get up to a gallop along the beach (for those that wanted to do so). Villagardo and his father were fantastic guides and told us the history of the area. Villagardo took pictures of the group and sent them afterward. They looked after the group and made sure everyone was having a fun time. Was an awesome introduction to Mexico!
