HORSEBACK RIDING ADVENTURES
"Everything else is just a trail ride..."
We have half-day, full day and overnight horseback excursions available --and a weeklong trail for the ultimate 'vaquero' experience. What about a romantic and unique night ride in town?
All our excursions are very exciting. Throughout our horseback riding excursions we explore a series of working cattle ranches located west of San Miguel. To make matters more exciting, the main canyon of this region runs right through this area. We are the only operators in town to have access into the trails of Coyote Canyon
, in the Cañada de la Virgen
area, near the Otomi pyramid & archaeological site
|We explore these ranches, prairies, and canyon, on horseback as extensively as time permits us, and the scenery is just breathtaking in every direction. At scenic rest stops along our journeys our great cowboy chefs prepare your delicious ranch style meals right on the campfire.
Our horseback riding excursions are exciting and rugged yet can also be tailored for families with small children or for seniors who would prefer a slower pace. Our youngest client, on an overnight horseback riding adventure, has been 1 & ½ years old; our eldest guest, 83 years young. No riding experience is necessary for horseback adventures, and all ages are welcome.
We recommend wearing comfortable laced shoes or boots (no flip-flops or sandals), long pants, long-sleeve shirt or light jacket, sunblock and a hat. In longer excursions –if the weather abides– don’t forget the swimming suit, as well as warm and extra clothes for the overnight trips.
We have a 4 PERSON MINIMUM
on our horseback riding excursions. Contact us
with your available dates so we can join you with a group or if you prefer you can have a private ride covering the cost of an extra rider.
Of the activities that we manage, the one that kids tend to enjoy the most is the full day horseback riding excursion
: the perfect adventure to share with your family! This option takes about 8 hours from San Miguel and back. The difference between our half-day, full day and overnight excursions is that our full day and overnight excursions have additional activities
such as milking, cheese-making, visiting with the ranch animals (goats, rabbits, turkeys, pigs, horses, etc.), extended rides, hiking, swimming, cattle-herding, galloping and roping lesson.
off a 120 foot sheer cliff for a grand finale!
COST: $145 USD / $1950 MXN per person
For a truly sensational cowboy adventure try our camping horseback riding excursion
(30 hours from San Miguel and back). Apart from including everything already mentioned, you can also share an evening bonfire with your friends and family and experience a midnight or early morning sunrise ride. It also includes all the camping gear necessary for a comfortable camping experience and a good nights sleep.
The next morning, try our most exciting adventure: rappelling
down the cliffs of the canyon and get our hot springs package
for a full day of excitement and relaxation (not included).
This is Coyote Canyon Adventures' best combination of culture and adventure tours. Visit the pyramids of Cañada de la Virgen and explore "The House of 13 Heavens", "The House of the Longest Night" and "The House of the Wind" with guidance of our resident archaeologist, Professor Albert T. Coffee, who worked at the site during its excavation.
After a delicious meal at the ranch, we'll enjoy of 2 and a half hours on horseback through the canyon, with rest stops by the river and on top of the cliffs to admire the impressive views.
Total duration: 8 hours (approx.) from SMA and back.
Add the rappelling
experience and enjoy a unique sunset!
Cost $145 USD / $1950 pax.
|Night rides in San Miguel
Go back in time and explore the historical center of this magical colonial town on horseback –simply a unique experience. Rides available anytime, although we strongly recommend to do it at sunset…
Perfect for romantic occasions –especially proposals–, find yourself surrounded by a Mariachi band and its heartfelt serenade in front of the Parroquia, to finally have the musicians walk along with you to a nearby restaurant.
COST: $100 USD / $1300 MXN per person (2 hours ride)
This adventure will take you accross the outstanding sierra or mountain range that once crossed on horseback the Mexican heroes of Independence, between the towns of Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende.
It’s 6 days on horseback and 5 nights camping outdoor in the Guanajuato mountains –all the equipment is provided to guarantee a deep and resting sleep after riding for 3 to 6 hours a day. Once at the camp, you may spend the rest of the day still riding, if you feel like it, or either exploring on foot the mysteries of that historic land such as rivers, waterfalls and a hidden graveyard where the runaway revolucionarios that stayed hidden from the army in those mountains where buried, along with their treasures…
