We have several trail riding options on safe and reliable horses. All rides start with a quick evaluation ride in the ring to make sure you and your horse are compatible, and or some basic instruction for riders with little to no experience. All rides are guided by qualified and experienced riding instructors. All rides are private and are set at a pace that is safe for you and your group.
2 Hour Playa & Vistas Tour $60
This 2 hour tour starts at our farm and heads out on the road towards Playa Junquialla. The back roads turn to wooded paths as we make our way down the coast line. In Junquialla we will enter the beach and head north. We will cross several different beaches- big open sandy, volcanic rock, and then deep white sandy beach great for a run! For the experienced rider or adventure seeker we can run up a hill and stop at the top for a beautiful panoramic view of the coast line and mountains. We weave thru a grassy meadow and then down an embankment back on to Playa Callejones a quaint fishing beach. Then we head back inland and finish up back at the farm.
1 Hour Jungle Tour $40
This tour starts at our farm and goes directly into the jungle. We will go up and down slopping hills and have an opportunity to see lots of flora, fauna, and tropical wildlife.
All Day Southern Trek w/ Lunch $120
Riders should have some riding experience and feel comfortable on a horse. All day treks are not recommended for people who may be nervous about horses – its a long day to be uncomfortable. Riders must be experienced and able to trot and canter. Also it is highly recommended that people who do this tour ride on a regular basis – or they will be very tired and sore by the end of the day.
The southern trek is more reclusive and the beaches are almost always empty except for local fisherman. We leave the farm first thing in the morning and go directly to the beach and head south. For the first hour you will experience several different types of beaches – small beaches with palms hanging over, volcanic rock, and big open beaches which are great for a controlled gallop. We also have a river crossing and depending on the time of year – you may get to have a little swim. We ride the beaches all the way to Largatillo – a quaint fishing village. Here we will stop and have a wonderful lunch and let the horses have a rest. Afterwords, we ride back up to the river crossing and enter the estuary. Here we ride through wetlands and have an opportunity to see lots of water birds. Also we get to do a run down a shallow river bed. Then we pop out on the road and go a little ways to enter back into what we call an oxcart road. This is an old dirt road – that is not always passable for cars. It winds thru the parcellas (parceled land used for farming). This part has a beautiful canopy and provides plenty of shade in the afternoon. This road comes out in the village of Paraiso – we ride thru town and back up the road to the farm.
All Day Northern Trek w/ Lunch $120
This trek is available for riders with less experience or saddle time. That said you should be comfortable around horses and not nervous. We start at the farm and ride to the beach directly- then head north towards Playa Negra – world famous for surfing. At the end of Negra we hop into Rancho Playa Negra a gated community for very high end and beautiful homes. We wind through the neighborhood and get back onto the beach at a local fishing spot. When the tide is correct we can ride pretty far out into the water. We keep going north on the beach until we get to Playa Avellanas a big open beach popular with tourist. If the tide and riding ability permits we will cross this and do one more controlled gallop. After a lunch break we head into the rolling hills that connect Avellanas and Playa Negra. We will see lots of wildlife and enjoy the shade of the trees.
