Typical Day


This ride makes a sweeping loop far out into the hidden worlds of the valley. From the ranch we ride past pecan orchards, fields of flowers and a complex system of irrigation canals that make this area the valley’s most productive farmland. Neat garlic and onion fields line tranquil back roads that lead to the quiet native village of Tlacochahuaya. Dismount your horse to visit its famous 16th century Dominican church. Recently-evangelized Indians painted the delightful walls and ceiling, and the cheerful style reflects their naturalistic approach to religion.
Have a snack and cold drink before mounting up for the second half of the journey that explores ancient trails that wind past hills richly forested with old-growth candelabra and nopal cacti. Ride across 19thcentury stone bridges that connect ancient cart trails in a hidden wetland, home to great blue herons and Cara-cara falcons. Trails lined with wild cane lead to the village of Santa Cruz Papalutla where artisans work the split cane into sturdy baskets. The flat smooth footing is idea for trots or canters as the ride curves north.
Turning into the ranch ice cold beer & limeade are waiting at the stables. Time to relax before sunset cocktails. Option to join an informal cooking class and learn how to make a traditional mole, the main course for this night’s dinner.
