Our horses (and ranch dogs) are our priority, and we will always put their well-being first. That is why we ask our guests to provide detailed information on their ages, heights, weight and levels of experience, as it is of extreme importance to us to make sure we have a suitable horse for you.

Winner of multiple awards throughout the years (two-fold Winner of the Unique Experience of the Year by the Luxury Travel Guide, Winner of the Boutique Touroperator of the Year by the Luxury Travel Guide and the Travel & Hospitality Award Winner of Excellence in Service, to name a few), our guests can rest assured that they will be in good hands with our Rancho Baaxal Family.
