Horseback riding in the beautiful surroundings of Santa Elena is definitely a must do...and even better when you discover that the horses are well treated and in good health! It was obvious that Marvin, the owner of the stable, has a real passion for horses and absolutely loves what he does. Marvin came to pick us up at the hostel and took us to his stable where we met our 5 new friends. Given some of us were pretty much newbies to horse riding, it took Marvin's patient explanation to get us started...made us feel safe and we felt confident to start exploring the natural beauties of the area, trotting and even galloping (so exciting!!). The change of perspective is well worth it and we thoroughly enjoyed it!!
And if that in itself is not enough, Marvin also took us to see a newborn horse (supercute!!) and Gladiador, a very well trained horse...
Would recommend it to anyone who loves horses and wishes to meet someone who knows how to to treat them!! Whether you are a seasoned rider or a beginner you will have a great experience!!
