We had fun but I would probably recommend choosing another riding stable. One of the horses in the group was lame. One horse in the group did not have shoes and was footsore on the rocky roads we rode on. Otherwise the horses seemed healthy and well cared for. The equipment was not the greatest--a piece of equipment broke during... More

I fully understand that horseback riding needs to be conducted safely and with consideration for all riders but to plod down dusty roads for 3 hours on end is not the activity most riders signed up for. A mother brought her 6 year old for his first time on a horse and 8 of us followed behind, chatted with each... More

Our last day in Samara, we decided to book a horseback tour. Audrey was very accommodating in customizing our tour as we only wanted to go for 1 1/2 - 2 hours, this was due to having two seniors with us who worried they may not be able to go longer (knee and hip discomforts). This was perfect. Although we... More

Jamison is 12 years old and we were a little worried because we were not seasoned riders. But don't let his age fool you. He was definitely knowledgable. We went to a little swimming hole and had a lot of fun!

We decided to spend our last day in Costa Rica (and first day of 2015!!) on horses. None of us (family of 7) was experienced but this was no problem : the horses knew their way through the jungle. It was a beautiful trip, we've seen monkeys, butterflies and we got a nice tan ;) Next to that we had... More

Yamin picked us up at our hotel and Luis took us on the tour. He was so great! We went up to the top of the mountain to see the most spectacular view of both beaches. Then we went to the beach which was beautiful. When Yamin picked us up she then took us to see a crocodile. What a... More

Audrey and Georgia lead pleasant tours on well fed horses. A walk through the jungle yields monkey sightings and orchid spotting, passing through a small Tico village, you arrive on one of the prettiest beaches around. A lovely morning!

We arranged a day trip for our group of seven women and we had a fabulous time. The horses are beautiful and very well taken care of (which is not always the case in this country) and our guides were very lovely and experienced. We trekked on dirt roads, through forest jungle and then along beautiful Buena Vista beach. We... More

The trails, the horses, the beaches, and the ladies.....all so lovely. Great ride. I would suggest this to anyone. A really unique way to see the beautiful parts of the more jungles terrain of the Nicoya Peninsula.
