More Info

Where we are…

Right in the heart of the Mexican Highlands, centered between the famous pyramids of Teotihuacan and the UNESCO site of San Miguel de Allende.

The extinct volcanic geology of the region has created a landscape crisscrossed with ancient lava flows. These have partially eroded over millennia and evolved into a rich landscape such as: low undulating hills, volcanic outcrops, narrow stream valleys, and ancient barren lava fields.
The low intensity of the farming means that wild saguaro and nopal cacti and agaves.

Here they practice mixed farming and there are many small villages with local shops, schools, health care centers etc. all interlinked by small roads and a myriad of trails. Local cowboys ‘Charros’ and farmers use these same trails to tend to their farm plots and small herds.

Dont just take our word for it, see what visitors like you say…


I had the opportunity to spend 5 days and 4 nights at the Ranch. It was amazing, not only if you are a rider (which I am) but there are opportunities to hike, shop, relax and swim if you are not a rider. The scenery is unbelievable. Over and above the beautiful waterfalls and landscape, the people that work there truly take the time to welcome their guests and show them true Mexican hospitality. Each room is clean and decorated with beautiful art from local artisans. Each meal is homemade utilizing fresh vegatables, meat, cheese and fruit local to the region served beautifully and delicious! Everyone there was attentive to the guests and ensured that all had a memorable relaxing stay.

For those that love to ride, each ride was different and they tailor the experience to the rider. We were also very lucky to meet new folks from around the globe and sharing the stories and experiences of other riders and cultures created an intimate experience both riding and throughout our stay.

Thanks so much Usi, Jenny, Max, Franko, Luis, Chewy, Shaun and all the others I have not singled out by name. We had a great time and will return. Until then “¡Corre salvaje con el viento en tu pelo!
