Daily Horseback Rides


Nine different rides to choose from!
We will match you to a horse that is perfect for your riding level. Trails vary in difficulty from beginner to advanced. Intermediate and advanced level riders are welcome to ride all gaits. Enjoy lunch in a quaint town, ride across rivers and into deep tropical forests, climb to spectacular vistas, or play with your horse in a mountain river.


 Farm Based Riding Vacations


We invite you to stay at the farm, meet our friends and neighbors, explore the wondrous natural beauties of Costa Rica and ride horses every day! Lodging can be either in our main farm house or in our Dream Catcher Tree House. Enjoy the many farm animals like chickens, goats, rabbits, dogs and cats, hike on trails to nearby rivers and waterfalls , and be nourished by delicious meals made from farm fresh local produce.

Two Day Treks through the Mountians


Get off the beaten path and head for the mountains, swim with your horse in a deep river, have a massage at a mountain eco resort, take part in an indigineous ceremony, experience the life of rural Costa Ricans when you stay the night with a local family . These are only some of the things you will experience on one of our two day treks


Eight Day Trek to the Beach


Travel for 8 days and 7 nights from the mountains to the beach. Each day’s ride is different from the last as you travel through unique ecosystems all the way to the Pacific coast beaches. Gallop along pristine, wide open beaches and swim with you horse in the sea. We stay with local families in the mountains and in lovely boutique hotels at the beach.

Yoga and Horsemanship


We are offering two treks this season that combine Yoga, Natural Horsemanship, and Riding.  Both treks include daily yoga classes designed specifically for the equestrian. The riding will be on the 8 day and 7 night Rainforest Trek. The instructors will ride with you on the trek. Yoga classes will happen once or twice daily.


Parelli Natural Horsemanship


Take a two day Parelli Natural Horsemanship  Workshop with 4* Parelli Professional Nita Jo Rush than ride with Nita Jo on the 8 day Jungle River Trek. Take the skills you learn out of the ring and into the real world with the support of your instructor. What a great way to practice the Parelli you love while exploring the wonders of Costa Rica.
