    Gold Mine Ranch or Mi Dushi

    Just wondering if anybody has done any tours with any of these and how it was. We're planning of booking.

    there's nothing to see at the gold mine save for a crumbled facade. although, the view of the atlantic ocean from the mine's site is to die for.

    My girlfriends and I just used the Gold Mine Ranch for the first time last Sept. and had a great time! Small, family owned ranch with only a few horses. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again - in fact, we probably will again this Sept.!

    Couple of photos from our ride:

    Hey Amy...
    My Lady and I are pretty faithful to the ranch we go to (La Ponderosa) but as I have been known to say, change can be a good thing. Do you have any contact info for Gold Mine Ranch?
    And, not to get carried away, but how were the horses?
    Thanks for any help...

    We had always been faithful to Rancho Notorious in the past, too, but decided to try something different last year and really liked Gold Mine Ranch. Very small, family-owned operation. Not a lot of horses so you'd never go out with a big group - in fact, we didn't have anyone at all with us except the guide so it was like a private ride that we have normally paid extra for in the past with Rancho Notorious.

    Here's their website: http://www.thegoldmineranch.com/

    Horses were great - nice smooth ride on paso finos.

    Danki Amy.

    We'll probably go to both.
    Yeah, we love riding that much, and it's worth the grime and dirt.

    34 days til the beach, 36 til the ponies....

    The temperature in the corner of the screen says 9 Fahrenheit. Yup, that's chilly.
