Sebastian was really excellent, very helpful about setting up my tour even though it was a busy day for him, and the horses and the trail were both wonderful! I went for 2 hours and we saw part of the Inca trail. I loved it, and would absolutely come again if I could!!

I did a 3 hour trail ride where I was just able to be at one with my horse and nature. Sebastian was fantastic happily engaging in conversation or letting me just enjoy the beautiful scenery. He comes from a genuine connected place and places great importantance on meeting and exceeding his clients needs. Thanks for an amazing ride Sebastian and for being an honest and caring person. Good luck with the building of the cabins which will make for an even more amazing experience and opportunity in the future. Dan

Sabastian is a great person. He was very patient with me when i asked him to take pictures of me. He even encouraged to take pictures in certain locations. This experience was a beautiful one. The scene was breathtaking. The horse was very well trained

After 2.5 years in Cuenca, I thought we had covered the best of the best that Cuenca has to offer. That was until my husband and I did a 2-hour horseback trail ride with Bellavista Equestrian Center. First of all, Sebastian has almost 50 horses and he carefully matches the horse to the rider, both in temperament and level of expertise. We rode up into the mountains and saw some of the most spectacular views of the surrounding area. Sebastian is very respectful of each rider and really instills confidence in your riding skills so you get the most out of your experience. Bellavista is only about 7 km from Cuenca and it is easy to get there. We plan to take all of our friends and family to ride at Bellavista Equestrian Center when they visit us in Ecuador and we are confident that it will be the highlight of their trip. The price is great and the memories are even better.

I had literally been dreaming about this horseback ride for weeks before arriving in Ecuador, as it was the excursion I was looking forward to the most. My expectations were already sky high before arriving, and not only were they met, but far surpassed.. to a level about as high as the misty mountain views we were treated to.The horses were well taken care of and loved, and were eager participants on our journey.The vistas from atop the mountains, the emerald hillsides, colourful houses made tiny by our elevated viewpoint, a ride thru a forest fit for a fairy tale, all were simply a feast for the eyes.. and along the route, we were a little awestruck at the timeless privilege of riding on an ancient Inca trail.. Sebastian was easy to talk to, as his English was excellent and our Spanish, not so much. I was also accompanied by a charming young guide by name of CJ, who made my ride even more special with his passion for horses and nature.. the other young guides that accompanied us were also wonderful and it was so amazing to see the local kids have such an opportunity to enjoy their beautiful country on horseback and bond with these amazing animals.. we stopped for yummy sandwiches on a grassy hilltop with a stellar view before heading back to the center.. all in all it was one of the most memorable and incredible excursions I have experienced in all my travels.. Thank you Sebastian for your warm hospitality and for the obvious love for what you do!
