About the business

Esperanza Riding Company - Vieques | ERC Vieques

Although we do not have a strict minimum age limit for our trail rides, we do suggest our younger riders be physically capable and/or have at least some experience in the saddle. They must have the confidence and ability to control their own horse, the listening skills to take their guide’s instructions and the endurance and attention span to ride for two hours. Generally speaking, children ages 8 and under and inexperienced youngsters (under 10 years) are better suited for our family farm ride or pony rides. We do NOT allow children to ride with adults as this is potentially very dangerous. For small children, under parental supervision, we offer a 15-minute hand-led “mini trail ride” on our most docile horses. Offered at the conclusion of our morning trail ride (approximately 10:30am). The cost is $20 per child. Please call us when you arrive on island to schedule. Parents, you have young children and you all want to ride, but the kids aren’t ready for our two-hour trail ride. We have a solution! You each get your own horse, we hand-lead the little ones (if necessary) and we take you for a 20-minute loop around our beautiful waterfront pasture. There is a great spot for that Christmas card photo too; overlooking Black Sand Beach and the south shore of the western side of the island. We offer this tour at about 10:30AM and the cost is $30 per person. We do need a height, weight and experience level for each rider, so please have this information ready. Call us when you arrive on island to reserve. Is there a special occasion that you would like us to help you with? Perhaps you’d like to propose on horseback at sunset or even exchange your nuptials on horseback! Do you envision your wedding party riding beautiful horses down a palm tree-lined beach?  Engagement and “Trash the Dress” photo shoots can be arranged also! Present us with your ideas and we will do our best to make it happen!   Your guide, Elizabeth Buyrn, from The Eastern Shore of Virginia, has called the island of Vieques home since 2006. Although she grew-up training and showing Arabian horses, she has found her calling astride the local Paso Fino-bred horses. She is happy to combine her love of horses, people and adventure to bring you a unique, personalized experience that you won’t forget. Happy Trails!

Great place to ride. The guide was helpful and informative. The horses were well behaved and clean. We visited 2 beaches and rode through the jungle. The black sand beach was really neat to see.

This was an amazing experience for our family. Elizabeth cares deeply about her animals. She matches u to ur ride by height, weight and experience. The 2 hour ride was thru open fields with fabulous views, beach riding and thru the jungle. The BEST Vieques experience!
