Oaxaca starfish ride

Discover the high valley of Oaxaca on horseback – a starfish ride with many faces

One week accommodation at the Ranch, six days riding a lot

This starfish ride is a collection of plenty of highlights around the Pitaya-Ranch. We will discover the high plateau of Oaxaca, range lonesome paths, meet farmers and their animals and watch them at work.

We ride through little towns and will get an idea about architecture and culture. We will visit an old Spanish church and have rest with our horses in the village, where we taste a typical Mexican delicacy.

We will climb uphill, where the path curls between cacti, or we have a nice long gallop on sandy streets, on our fresh and eager horses who love running, they never seem to get tired.


So many impressions! Meager and rough, abundant and fertile, mountains and valleys – on this ride there is plenty to discover! One day we start the excursion directly in the high plateau. The horses will be transported with the trailer, so that our ride begins in the mountains with a fantastic view. We will see typical Mexican handcraft and age-old constructions of the Mayas.


After the ride the day ends with a “sundowner” in the hammock (mostly a typical Mexican cocktail, nice and fresh), before the guests meet around the big table at the veranda, where a delicious dinner is served. The Mexican food is tasty and flavorful, fresh and healthy.
