My 3 children and I did an afternoon tour with Kay and her husband and it was amazing. Only one of my children had ridden horses before and they all had a great time. The beer was cold and the chicken Chilito made us was delicious. This was a great afternoon during our trip and I would highly recommend it... More

I have read a number of reviews and can confirm everything that they have said. I arrived at 9p and Kay produced a bowl of lovely pasta and there was fruit in the fridge. After a long tiring journey, it was really comforted by this. I had a thoroughly good week with Kay and Esteban and wish I could have... More

Spent another two weeks in paradise in April. I own a condo close to Tamarindo and only 15 minutes from Finca Casagua where Kay and Esteban own and run Casagua Horses. I keep my own horse there and she gets the same wonderful care and attention that every one of there horses gets. I ride as often as I can,... More

This was the first time I did a riding adventure in any country. And how glad I am that I wound up here. From the moment I arrived I felt comfortable and at home. The horses are very well taken care of (I was there during the end of the dry season and local live stock showed the effects). Estaban... More

We hope you come back soon. We can design a personalized itinerary for your riding and natural horsemanship training. I know you just got a taste of the training, would like you to work more with Esteban and our horses. Thanks for your kind comments. More

Once again we had a great time with Kay, Esteban and the horses. This is our third visit and we are sure to come back for a forth time! The property is beautiful and peaceful - a great place to relax as well as to go riding on their well-loved horses (in fantastic condition of course!). It was very hot... More

I spent a week on Kay and Esteban's wonderful Finca Casagua and was thoroughly spoiled with the hospitality, food, company, weather, and traditional fiestas while I was there. Sadly my bag did not arrive with me but that was not a problem - Kay provided me with a change of clothes and anything else I needed. The first night Esteban... More

This was the first time so far away from my home in Alberta Canada and arrived late in Costa Rica. We were picked up at the airport and arrived at the ranch to the sound of crickets and frogs, and the sweet smells of flowers. Kay was a wonderful hostess and cook. Esteban was very helpful with the horses, supplying... More

One of the highlights of our trip. Truly a beautiful experience riding through rustic costa rica. We saw howler monkeys, ate some delicious food, and met some really genuine people. Kay and Esteban are the real deal and they are great! Cannot recommend this enough! Also, my fiance is a VERY inexperienced equestrian and Kay gave her the personal attention... More

Whether an adult or child, riders have to begin riding somewhere. If we can help new riders of all ages have a positive, safe riding experience, they will want to ride again. Often people who are frightened need some special attention, or if riders have have previous back experiences on or around horses, if we can help these folks, that... More

I spent a week with Kay and Esteban. Horses great, good food, good company and excellent accommodation. They are passionate about their horses and horsemanship, and are very happy to share their knowledge with others. I also saw and learnt a lot about Guanacaste culture. A wonderful experience.

We agree a week on the ranch give a special opportunity to not only get a lot of riding in, but a chance to enjoy the horse culture of Guanacaste. Our horses, trained with Natural Horsemanship, give riders a comfortable safer ride. We are blessed that we can raise many of our own horses that are born on the ranch... More

I stayed a week at Casagua Horses and was very fortunate to be the only guest. Kay and Esteban immediately made me feel like family. I requested the Casita and could not have been happier. Plenty of room, very comfortable bed and a great outdoor shower. Their knowledge of not only the horses, but the history of the land and... More

Thanks for your kind comments. Whether we have one or seven guests, we want to give you a personalized itinerary and personal service. If you join our day tour riders, we make sure you ride with riders of similar abilities. Sunset beach tours are one of our riders favorites.
