This Is Our Story
Thank you for visiting our page, we are excited you're here! We are a family owned ranch with over forty years of equestrian experience. Our founders grew up on the first and, for decades, the only horse-riding establishment in Aruba. As young kids they were taught stable management, riding skills and all horse care routines thinkable. Having taken care of hundreds of horses and passing on the skills and knowledge to the younger generation, we can proudly say that we KNOW horses. The love and care for horses have always been a constant. The seed that was sown decades ago would flourish years later with the opening of our own ranch.
In 2008 Hoofs of Hope was established operating as El Paseo Ranch. Since then it has welcomed and entertained many locals and tourists on the beautiful island of Aruba. As the only ranch on the island to have multiple locations, we are thrilled to offer you a unique variety of trails.
Besides touring guests we are also committed to rehome rescue horses. Unfortunately, Aruba does not dispose of sufficient environmental resources to enable self-supporting food for horses. We rely almost entirely on imports to maintain our four legged friends, which makes it an expensive endeavor. Nonetheless, with your support we have been able to nurture many rescue horses throughout the years.
Giving back to society has always been very important to us. That is why we started HHH in 2017. Hippotherapy Hoofs of Hope foundation has been offering therapeutic riding to kids with neurological disabilities such as autism and other behavioral disorder. Interaction with horses promotes neurological and physical functioning of children with limitations and in doing so contributes to their quality of life.
What Makes Us Special
Local Expert Guides
Like any outdoors activity you are going to want the best people to guide you. That is exactly what we provide. Our staff have the safety of each guest as number 1 priority. We love to share that part of Aruba you probably have not experienced yet. Our professional guides are sure to lead you the best way possible in order to guarantee a safe and comfortable ride.
Well trained horses
Our horses are our main asset. It is with great pleasure and pride that they are trained and taken care of. Most of our friends are paso fino horses. This is a smaller breed than horses usually encountered in the U.S. and Europe.
Because of this, we maintain a strict weight limit for all horseback rides. All tours are perfectly suited for beginner riders but also give advanced riders the ride of a lifetime!
Hidden Gem Sights
Aruba is a beautiful island. We bet you already knew that. What you don't know is that most visitors don't get a chance to experience the rugged side and hidden gems of the island . We provide you with just that chance!
Our tours offer picturesque and breathtaking panoramic views of a part of Aruba not accessible by car. None of our tours use roads accessed regularly by motorized traffic which is favorable to guest and animal.
