This was the highlight of all activities we did in Costa Rica! It was such a serene experience! The tour takes you through the rain forest while the guide talks to you about the plants, animals, and the birds you might see on your way. We were lucky to see the blue butterflies (they are huge and radiant in color!),... More

I've done this tour twice, once with my husband and then again, with my son. This tour is like no other!! The farm is beautifully scenic with so much to see. The horses are equally as beautiful and so well-cared for...each with a unique and gentile personality. We rode through fields and jungle with a mid-ride stop at a natural... More

I did this tour with my husband, 16 year old daughter and her friend. We had an incredible time! Safety is a priority for the riders and for the horses. Her training methods for her horses are wonderful. Each horse is a rescue and they are all so happy and calm and well maintained. Our guide was Andy (Andrea) and... More

Everyone at the farm was super nice and knowledgable. All the horses were so fantastic. The tour itself was amazing...saw a bunch of cows and wild birds. My 11 year old daughter and I really enjoyed the mud bath as well. The farm is beautiful!!

We were late by a half hour, our mistake, but Andrea and Chris waited patiently for our family of five. This ride is one of a kind, beautiful, animals, and beautiful scenery, and a very intimate and professional private tour. Andrea and Chris were fantastic at pointing out all the plants and animals along the ride. We saw a wild... More

Chris and Andrea (absolutely lovely, caring and humorous hosts) offer much more than horseback riding - humans, horses and nature in great harmony. Me and my friend spent an amazing week with them. On our daily 2-3h rides, we explored Costa' Rica's stunning jungle (on a private reserve), e.g. including river rides, a natural spa treatment and a lot of... More

As a dressage rider and animal advocate and author of "Pilates for the Dressage Rider" I take my horses seriously. Driving up to the stable, I immediately was impressed by the condition and demeanor of the horses. They were absolutely beautiful! Well cared for, calm eyed and groomed to the nines! I brought my husband and two friends, non riders,... More
