Here is an opinion of one of our guests you also can find on TripAdvisor:

I booked a three hour horse ride through Arutam Ecotours and I had a fabulous riding experience. I am riding a horse in each country I visit on my world trip and I really enjoyed this ride. The ride was scenic and safe. We rode up to the top of one of the hills between two valleys and saw some excellent views across Tarqui The owner of the riding establishment, Sebastain came along and with his 5 yr old son and another child who was a total beginner. We also had two experienced riders with us. The horses were well kept and well trained and suited each person so that we could all enjoy the ride. Sebastain speaks very good English. We had lots of great chats about horses along the way. The horses coped with the terrain and any traffic on the way back with no problems. We were able to walk, trot and canter. It was great fun.This is the second trip I have done with this company and they are friendly and make great lunches.
