We'd like to tell you that "Sabine's Smiling Horses" (in Santa Elena / Monteverde) has moved several years ago to another place in Santa Elena - please check the map on her website When you're leaving Santa Elena southwards shortly after "Mundo de los Insectos" you have to turn right and follow the yellow signs (with "Sabine" written on them) then you'll reach her beautiful new place. You will also find some of these signs in/around Santa Elena town. We really recommend choosing Sabine and her "smiling horses" for a horseback-ride. It's 15 -$/hour e.g. you can go on a 3 5 hrs ride including a waterfall - great! Kind regards Silk

Dear Lonely Planet Team I'm the owner of Sabine Smiling Horses a Horseback Riding Farm in Monteverde/Costa Rica. We' re listed in your Costa Rica Travel Guide since 5-6 years. We're very happy about this then we work a lot with Lonely Planet readers and make them happy discovering our beautiful surroundings. In the meantime a few details regarding our business changed and we would like you to consider them in the next edition. Our phone numbers: 645 6894 or 385 2424. Our location in Town also changed. You can find us 2 km south of Santa Elena (1 km south of the cemetery). Readers had problems finding us as we're still listed with our old location in the map. Regarding our Tours: The most popular ones are the waterfall full moon and the sunset ride. Thank you for your cooperation. Please don't hesitate of contacting us for any questions. Regards, Sabine Hein http://www.lonelyplanet.com/thorntree/thread.jspa?threadID=1226068
