Horseback riding along the trails beneath the Arenal Volcano. Breath taking. Encountering cows. Enjoying the lush scenery.

I haven't trotted on a horse in years. So when we took off and my horse started to trot, I was admittedly a little nervous. And then it was fun. Really fun. And I couldn't wait to see more of this beautiful area on the back of Mariposa! What a great horse. We were picked up by a taxi from... More

There were 4 adults in our group. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The trail was a mix of easy and challenging. You felt like you had really gone horseback riding! Not just a little pony ride! The guide even helped with photos of wildlife.

This was a really cool experience for someone not riding a horse before. It was nothing like I had imagined. It was very scary since it was very dangerous climbing mountains with a horse, especially if you´ve never sat on a horse before. I like taking risks, so for me this was a pleasant trip. If it is your first... More

In my travel group, each of us had a different level of experience with horseback riding and the professional staff at Don Tobias did a great job matching us up with horses that fit our experience. This was my first time horseback riding and I had an awesome time! The guides gave us clear instructions on how to communicate with... More

Don Tobias met us at the stable and told us he would help us pick out a horse. I got a mixed horse named Miquita. Don Tobia’s gave us instructions on how to hold on to the rein, which is with one hand. The horses seemed to know where they were being taken and so it wasn’t hard to get... More

One of my favorite adventures was Cabalgatas Don Tobias. Riding horses is my passion and one of my favorite hobbies. What I really liked was how precautious they were with the people that were riding horses for the first time. It is a fun experience, and I recommend it for everybody of all ages. It is really safe once you... More

I am not the most experience of horseback riders, it had been years since I had rode a horse, but I knew what I was doing when it came to just strolling the trail with my horse. I would have to say that this was one of my favorite excursions that I had the chance to take part in while... More

This was an amazing experience for me. I'd never really been interested in horse riding, but I went along for the adventure and absolutely fell in love. I was part of a large group of mostly inexperienced riders, so we went at a comfortably slow pace. The guides were very helpful, and the horses were just delightful. They followed the... More

Our family has a challenging array of enthusiastic to insecure riders. Our guide Eric made adjustments on the fly to accommodate everyone. Everyone enjoyed their ride and the landscapes, views and wildlife on these private lands are breathtaking. We were even able to spot some wild pigs while traversing small streams and challenging hillscapes. The horses are well maintained, obedient... More
