This was a great trip, and a very wonderful week with my daughter. All of the people at Barking Horse Farm, and the farms along the trek, are warm and gracious and generous. This is not a trip for those who demand 4-star accommodations, but it is one that allows you the opportunity to meet a few incredible people that make Costa Rica home, and enjoy the sights and sounds of this beautiful country. I would suggest you be very honest with yourself and your abilities with horses. The Costa Rican / Criollo horses are smaller, athletic horses that are built to go hours up and down mountain trails. This hardiness demands a certain amount of spirit and a rider that appreciates this quality and can match it. Liz Hawkins is the remarkable leader & planner of these treks, and a wonderful hostess.
