Maruba has its own stables and horses on the resort. Your guide may or may not speak English well and you aren't really given any lessons about horseback riding. The saddles are wooden and not very comfortable, but you get used to it after awhile.
You will be taken riding for about an hour through the surrounding jungle areas where you may spot some wildlife. Some of the trails are narrow and overgrown, so you might get scratched by plants. I recommend that you wear jeans and a long sleeved t-shirt for protection. Also, don't forget your bugspray.
I was not that impressed with the scenery, but it was an overcast day that I went and you may have better luck.
