My husband and I took 2 1/2 hour private tour on horseback through the extraordinary landscape Of Arenal. Our guide Ronald was exceptional with helping us as beginner riders and we thoroughly enjoyed leisurely riding and as well as galloping on our beautiful, well trained horses. My horses name was Dove and though she really wanted to run, she staid... More

This was by far one of the best horseback riding experiences I've ever had. First, only the four people in our group booked the ride so it was like having a private tour! Our experience ranged from many years of lessons to "i've never ridden a horse ever" (we're all around 30 years old). Our horses were roughly matched to... More

Took my 8 year old daughter on the ride. From the pick up to the ride, each person was very warm and friendly, and our guide, Rubein, was absolutely fantastic. We could practice our Spanish, but the guides spoke English very proficiently, which did help. After the guide determined her competence, my daughter was allowed to manage her horse independently,...

Our experience at Wildberth Stables was an unforgettable one. Enrique, our guide was friendly and extremely knowledgeable about this beautiful property and surrounding areas. You will learn the history of the ranch, Arenal volcano, and the enormous man made lake near by. I had the pleasure of riding Mouse, a small and docile horse. Grandpa was my companions horse for...

Had Enrique as our guide and our horses were Mouse and Paloma. Mouse would stop occasionally to eat bananas.The tour was fun. The path went through the jungle and plantations that sat at the base of the volcano. Very nature filled with beautiful scenery. Didn't see any animals but this isn't On-Demand. The only negative thing I can say is... More

The trail was nice and took us back into the jungle. The guide was funny and happy, but we couldn't understand him at times. There wasn't any place to put a bottle of water in the saddle so mine dropped out half way through. We saw some monkeys from far away, snake, Tucan...

We had a great time. A must in Costa Rica. Our guide was charming and the horses were well behaved. The grounds were safe and clean.

Horseback riding was awesome! You have to ask for Enrique. He was the 'best' guide. One of the first things he said is that in Costa Rica "we protect our animals." Costa Rica banned hunting in the mid 1990's and the Ticos (Costa Ricans as they are called) live in harmony with their environment and they have a great respect... More
