Horseback riding Beach/Mountain Combo rides

If you are looking for some adventure and can’t decide between wanting a beach horseback ride here in Ensenada or exploring some mountains. How about a combination of both? now offering horseback riding that includes our beautiful beaches of Ensenada and the mountains that surround it.

Come out and see some of the country side and places that most of the tourists do not get to experience.

If you are looking for a great time, without breaking the pocket book, check out our prices here at Desert Trails for some fun adventures in the sun.

After your trail ride enjoy a great massage with Jesse at Ensenada Massage. Mention Desert Trails and get a discount.

Come out and book more than 1 excursion with us and get a discount for 4 or more people in your group.

Can’t ask for better prices, than the cheapest around, and a discount on top of that. Come out and support our rescues, and let your $ go to a good cause.

If you are taking a cruise through Carnival, Princess, or Holland cruise lines, or how about Disney? Then look us up for a great experience for the whole family. 


Looking for more ways to relax while visiting Ensenada?

Some of my riders mentioned being excited to get great massage after, and some others were asking about recommendations, so I checked out Ensenada Massage where Jesse is the owner.  I went to see their spa and was pretty impressed.  It’s facilities are well above the standard here in Ensenada with even a cool water fountain in the lobby.
If you are coming off of Princess Cruise, Carnival, Disney or Holland cruise lines and are looking for a great way to relax without the added extra cost. Come check us out for great tours for Horseback riding on the beach, and in the mountains, Las Canadas tours, La Bufadora. Offering package deals, and discounts for tours of groups of 4 or more.
I haven’t received a massage yet (got to make time for my aching body and relax my brain!), but  my groups have been totally happy, which makes sense since they are #1 on Trip Advisor like us.  It works great since I can drop you off there after the ride at 2 or 3, and he will get you back to the ship.
Turns out Jesse’s Dad is a horse trainer  in Southern Wisconsin with a herd of 8, so he likes horse people and offered a sweet discount to our couples and groups; he is including hot stone upgrades for FREE for couples and groups coming after a ride with us.  And their packages are about 1/2 of   the cruise ship.
I highly recommend this a way to end a great day of riding! His team can handle groups of 6.

Come out and meet our newest rescues

Come out and meet our new rescues. Estrella (meaning Star in English) was bought from the beach rides in Ensenada. When we got her, she was underweight and sick. So underweight we didn’t know she was pregnant and she had aborted the foal due to malnutrition.

Now, she is happy, alive and loves playing games on the trail and out in pasture.


La India, is our newest, about an 8  month old filly. underweight, and again not fed properly. She came to us just a week ago. Already doing better, and putting on more weight, sweet little girl who is gaining more energy by the day. 



Compare our prices to Carnival or Princess cruise lines

From what customers have told us. Here is what you can expect from us, (this is what customers who have taken the cruise lines have mentioned). 

Our prices verses Carnival Cruise lines and Princess (who i do not believe offers as many tours) or Disney Cruise lines.

When booking a tour through us. We charge 30$ for 1-1.5 hours of horseback riding in the mountains.

Beach riding is 45$ for the 1-1.5 hour rides.

La Bufadora Tours is 75$ for your group of up to 4 people. For your group of 5-10 people is 90$ for 11 or more add 3.00$ a person.

This price is the same for Las Canadas for us.  Tours is 75$ for your group of up to 4 people. For your group of 5-10 people is 90$ for 11 or more add 3.00$ a person. (not including the ziplining cost)

From what people have told us, the boat charges 129$ a person for each of these tours per a person.

They also tell you, that tickets to Las Canadas are cheaper if booked in advance. This is false, there are usually no lines to wait to get into the camp, nor go zip lining. When you get there. Prices are from 22$-30$ roughly (this could change, with the exchange rate or if prices go up or down). If you book online i have been told tickets are 35$.

The other thing Carnival tells you is that you have to be a certain age to go zip lining. We have had people go as young as 8 years old.

Savings through us, verses going through the Carnival or another excursion company in Ensenada can add up to a huge amount.

Some examples below for Las Canadas (ziplining, or La bufadora and horseback ride on the beach:
