A beautiful, calm, sure-footed horse and a great trail through stunning scenery. This was only my second time ever on horseback, but any apprehension I felt beforehand disappeared completely as soon as I got into the saddle - a feeling of complete trust in my horse. And the whole wonderful experience topped off by a cold beer and chinwag with... More

We're always delighted when a client tells us how comfortable they felt on the ride. Horses are amazing creatures and extremely intuitive and we try to do our best to make sure that we pick the right horse for each rider. Nothing tastes better than a cold beer after a ride.... of course, we do have other beverages to enjoy!... More

This ride through the most beautiful landscape was one of the top three experiences of my holiday in Costa Rica. Our hosts made us feel welcome and the horses were so well-trained that although I had almost no previous experience in riding I could just relax and enjoy the beauty of the nature around us. I'm so happy we did... More

We were a group of six with one excellent rider and five less so (to the point of once). Finca Caballa Loco - a bit of a misnomer as the horses were carefully selected for the size, experience and comfort of the riders but it was "loco fun"! - is a real treasure hidden within reach of Atenas and San...

You're quite right that the name 'Finca Caballo Loco' doesn't reflect the character of any of our horses. The name came about by means of a papier mache mask that I commissioned a Nicaraguan artist friend to create for me. It hangs on our Tree Top Terrace amongst all the other horsey paraphenalia. Thank you for your lovely comments and... More
