My daughter (age 13) and her friend (age 12) and I spent nine days with the good folks of Establo San Rafael, their visiting natural horsemanship instructors, horses and guides. The two girls were thrilled, especially when their week culminated riding their horses bareback on the beach, and playing in the waves. I learned so much, and returned from my holiday rested and refreshed in every possible way.
The highlight for me was learning from 3* Parelli Natural Horsemanship instructor Susan Nelson, and 4* Maurice Thiebault. I had enjoyed their instruction before in other locations, but they were equally generous with their time and talent in the beautiful setting of Costa Rica.
The trip fulfilled my expectations. There were parts that were rough, as expected, and parts that were more luxurious, also as planned. Our final hotel on the beach was a bit of a disappointment, especially when the other guests on our tour stayed in a nicer hotel, but nothing could really mar the lovely week we had.More
