    Descripción

    For over 20 years, our ranch has been offering tourists the possibility to explore Ecuador on horseback. We lead 1 – 6 days riding tours through stunning landscapes in and around one of worldwide only two inhabited volcanic craters.

    In order to support our rides, the logistics, the necessary preparatory work, the constant horse training, but most of all the daily work at the ranch, like feeding, cleaning, field work, pasture maintenance etc, we regularly look for horse-experienced volunteers, who would like to work with us for at least 2 months and bring a lot of dedication.
