Rent a Horse
We offer a number of options for the experienced rider not needing a guide. You can rent any of our fine horses by the hour or set up multiple rides for a discounted amount. For $100 a month, you may ride as many times as you wish. Just give us 24 hours notice and your horse will be saddled and waiting for you when you wish. Minimum of two month contract. Get a group of friends together and go riding together.
Board a Horse
We would be happy to quote you a price to board a horse at our facility. Prices vary depending if you will allow us to use your horse for a tour and/or have your own saddle and gear. Simply contact us 24 hours in advance and we will have your horse saddled and ready for you.
Hotels, Hospedajes, NGOs and Other Organizations
We can quote you a monthly price that will allow you to provide unlimited rides to your guests or members at a very reasonable price. You can then charge your customers or members a higher price or simply offer the horse rides as a benefit. If a guide is necessary, you would simply pay the guide a reasonable fee.
Riding lessons are available for all ages.
Farm Visits for Children of NGOs
See all the animals and get a short led horse ride.
We are a new business and always looking for other ideas. Feel free to contact us and discuss your needs.

The Painted Pony stables are located on the Bushnell farm. You are welcome to visit the farm to see the pelibuey, pigs, chickens, ducks and of course, the horses. Just give us a few days warning of your visit. Your children will enjoy it very much.
NGOs, especially those that work with children, are always welcome to visit a real working farm and at no cost.
Giving Back to the Community
All of us associated with Painted Pony Horse Tours see the nexus between travelers who want to give back to the destinations visited, and the local community. Tours operators like Painted Pony, have a deep understanding of how we can help Granada in conjunction with our riders.
For example, we are with Corazon Contento on different projects where horse therapy is provided to children with special needs.
