Smiling Horses Monteverde

Sabine's Smiling Horses

Monteverde offers an ideal climate for horses. It is fresh and green all year round. For horseback riding, the local Campesino (country side farmer) trails are the best, going through farmland & Cloud Forest, besides offering stunning views of the gulf of Nicoya, the Cloud Forest, coffee plantations, wild life and more.

In guidebooks and online resources you can read that we are well-known not only for the quality of our horses and the diversity of our tours. The special care we show all of our customers are these days marked by our modern form of communication already ahead of your tour.

We are constantly improving the quality of our services for our riding guests. Prior to beginning the ride, we provide a briefing about horse ride and safety.  We provide helmets to all riders. Our local guides are professionals that take responsibilities. They have years of experience in guiding. Sabine speaks fluent English, Spanish, German and French. Don't hesitate to call, text or email her, if you have more questions to set up your customized ride.

Our rides leave from different farms around the area of Monteverde, depending on your tour and possibility of transportation.  Depending on the luck of the day, we can see toucans, toucanettes, motmots, bellbirds and parrots on a daily base, sometimes even a snake or a sloth.  We ride on Campesino (farmer) trails or on private farms, that offer excellent views of the Pacific Ocean and the Cloud Forest as well as the stunning local landscape passing coffee plantations and local farm land. Riders with experience get, depending on weather condition across the continental divide and have a peak of surrounding volcanoes.

We have been providing safe and enjoyable experiences for families and experienced riders of all ages since 1999.  We take pride in the special care and attention we give to all of our customers, experienced riders as well as children and first-time riders. We adapt the tours in the countryside, time of riding, level of riding and choose the horses accordingly.

We offer easy going horses for children, all of which are very safe and comfortable. Smallest children, in general below 3 years of age ride with their parents. Above we need to see the size of the child and we will take them in the lead until about 6 years of age. All riders wear riding helmets and get a briefing before the ride.

If you are one of our former satisfied customers, we would like to encourage you to write about your experience and post it online, so future guests can find us easier and get information first hand. Thank you for visiting and riding with us.
