No Other Footprints Other Than That Of Our Own Horses

Visit one of the top equestrian centers and boarding facilities in Costa Rica. Home to beautiful horses, these well trained friends are light, responsive, collected, intelligent and easy to work with.


This is a great way to view the Guanacaste coast and countryside. We offer 2 trail riding options, which will take you to different secluded beaches and spots truly off the beaten path. These places will take your breath away. It’s not unusual to find no other footprints other than that of our own horses on some of these beaches.
