This thriving business is for sale and it includes the complete operational business, real estate, hores and more. The horse ranch was built in 2010 and is located in the beautiful, rugged Washikemba area, near Lagoen, on the eastern side of Bonaire. Rancho Washikemba has been fitted with every comfort you need. They have 14 open and airy stables so the horses can have social contact with each other, a 22 x 40 meters arena/ paddock (international standard) with soft Guyana river-sand flooring, a 18 meter round pen, a lush tropical garden and 3500 m² pasture where the horses can move freely.

The ranch is known for its private- and group lessons, trail rides and tours through the pristine area of Nature Park Bara di Karta, Washikemba and Lagoen. Most famous is the Ride and Swim tour where in walking gait a group goes from the ranch over the east coastline to the gorgeous Blue Lagoon bay, where they swim with the horses in the Caribbean Sea / Lagoen area. This is a really special experience and generates a lot of positive feedback that can be used for marketing on social media, website etc.
