“great ride! wear pants!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

a group of six of us were recommended by a friend to contact Lee about a ride- So happy we did! Lee was a great tour guide and we had a lot of fun getting to know the horses and seeing the waterfall- At the waterfall there is a great rope swing right into the water- with several different jump off points- Definitely wear pants on the ride- our entire group was majorly regretting wearing shorts and shoes without socks- other than that it was perfect!

“Great afternoon to Florida falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

We booked this tour through the main agent in Montezuma town. He called them up and requested a tour for us - (explaining we were complete novices) an afternoon ride to florida falls. This particular tour looked more suitable than the beach riding, especially given the heat and the times the tours ran. The horses and reputation on the company were also qualified unlike many of the horse operators we saw on our travels.
I was pretty nervous and had recently injured my Toe (oops it was broken) but really wanted to experience horse riding in such a beautiful area.
we were collected from town, which was a huge bonus for us as we were transport free, and taken to the stables locally, where we discovered it was just the two of us on the tour. perfect!
I think they only have smaller groups anyway but for a first timer this was great for me and made the experience personal and very enjoyable.
The business is owned by a vet, so i was very happy that the aminals were taken care of and looked after perfectly, which is very important when your a blundering tourist!
Im soooo sorry i cant remember our guides name, Jake maybe?! we met soo many nice folks on our travels! i was really comfortable with the insruction given, the horse chosen for me and the level of expeience needed.
we took a 45min-1hour gentle amble along a countryside road and track to Florida falls, where the horses were left in the shade whilst we had a refreshing swim in the water and some delicious pineapple (saving some for the horses!)
the ride back was so nice, as it was later in the day, the courtyside was beautiful and quiet and the heat perfect. I felt more confident on the way back and thouroughly enjoyed the whole experience. we were driven back to town and dropped off.
overall the tour was very worthwhile and run by professional and freindly people who care about animals. I would certainly take my kids, and go (if as i was) you are a complete novice. I booked other horse riding trips later in our vacation on the back of the wonderful experience i had with these guys and they turned out to be the highlights of our travels in CR. Thank you :)

“Amazing - a Must Do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

We had tried to go to the top rated horse-back riding but there were too many of us (6). He suggested Indiana and I can't thank him enough. The horses were beautiful and so well cared for (these animals are truly loved). Deanna is a vet and has about 17 friendly dogs running around and these animals are her babies. She matched us perfectly to our horses. Our guide, Lee, was entertaining, knowledgeably and wonderful. (We ending up inviting he and his family to dinner and had a great night.) The trail was perfect and we ended up at a beautiful waterfall where we enjoyed a swim and fresh fruit. The horses got to chow down on the left over pineapple - a welcome treat. The more experienced riders got some wonderful running in the pastureland while a guide remained with those who were more comfortable walking and enjoying the scenery. It was a fantastic day and I highly recommend them to anyone who loves horses. Thanks so much Deanna, Lee and Enrico.

“Great Excursion!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the Caballos Lodge and were a little disappointed, that there are no horses anymore. The lady in charge arranged than the tour with Indiana Horse Tours, witch was a great choice! We went to a little waterfall for swimming and an Ananas break.
My horse could have been a little faster, but all in all, it was a great experience!
Highly recommended!
