Mamacona Stables - Horseback Riding Lima - Peru

Visitors to Lima who want to explore ancient ruins, sandy beaches and the Peruvian countryside can do so in a traditional way riding a Peruvian paso horse. The Mamacona Stables complex outside Lima will suit everyone up, from novices to experienced riders, for a cabalgata (trail ride). Riders head along tree-lined dirt roads, passing several small ranches where foals and horses graze. A long stretch of deserted beach is the final destination. Seagulls soar overhead as the horses wade through the surf, ankle-to knee-deep. Beginners may want to hang on because more frisky horses may break into gallop. Before the bump becomes too breathtaking, the guides will easily rein the horses back to a walk. Except for the occasional rumble of a truck passing on the highway behind, riders are alone. The entire trail ride is about three hours long. Mamacona Stables also offers one and two-hour excursions, and full-moon night rides. The National Paso Horse tournament is held right on Mamacona grounds every April.

The easiest way to reach Cabalgatas stable is by taxi, to Mamacona. The Mamacona entrance is before the entrance to Pachacámac ruins. Look for the sign that says Asociación del Caballo Peruano de Paso.
