“Fun trail ride with beautiful views.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Horses are well cared for and the trail ride was not boring. We did lots of trotting & loping. And the views are amazing.

“Great ride through the Costa Rican hills”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

The owners are very friendly and the guide did a great job. Horses were very energetic and the hike to the waterfall, though a bit treacherous, was fun and well worth it. Nice little swimming hole.

“Fun time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We had a lovely two hour trail ride through the mountains on beautiful clean horses. We had beautiful views as well. The guide who went with us did not really guide us, that is talk to us or show us anything from a nature perspective--he was there to make sure we rode safely.

“Sabina's Singing Horses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Sabina's horses are well cared for by her family and a few other people. Her guides provide safety and adventure for visitors. Whether you are an experienced rider or relatively new, you cannot beat this locally owned, locally loved place.

“Super auch für absolute Anfänger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Hello,

What a great experience. It was our first ride on a horse and it was perfect.
We followed the recommendation for the 3h ride which includes a short walk
to a wonderful waterfall. It was really excellent. The guide did a perfect
job and the horses where exact what you need as an absolute beginner. We can only recommend
this stable and the tour.

Thanks again for that great experience.
