Unexpectedly Magical
Jul. 2021 • Couples
This was the most unexpectedly amazing experience of me and my wife’s entire two-week honeymoon! We thought it was just a cute way to watch a sunrise, but it ended up being an amazing 2+ hour horseback ride through some of the most beautiful country. It was so green that it felt Photoshopped. I cannot recommend this enough. Obviously do not forget to go ziplining or do the San Sucas Treetop Dining Experience. But after those things, definitely book Equus!
We hiked El Tigre Waterfalls in the morning (without the horses, not worth it), came back for some lunch and then did Equus at 3 or 4pm for the sunset. Freaking magical. You also get to do a little sugar cane workshop for 20 minutes right at the end. They will also pick you up from your hotel/AirBnB.

Best Horseback Trail and tour
May 2021
Pablo and his father Rafael did a great job showing us around their tour and stable. The horse tour was amazing, my friends and I enjoyed going through beautiful scenery and learned how to ride a horse well. We went at the 1pm tour, it was great, well worth it and ended with some sugar cane juice, snacks and sweets.

Best part of the tour was how we were able to race with our horses in sections of the tour. Definitely gave it a thrilling experience and recommend the excitement to anyone who loves riding horses or is a beginner at it.

Horseback riding tour monteverde
Apr. 2021 • Friends
We booked a tour through smiling horses on the equus farm and we had the loveliest time! The guides were very sweet and gave us a great tour through the mountains. The horses were adorable and very obedient. At the end they showed us their sugarcane farm and how sugar is made and even made us a nice snack. I would recommend it to everyone!

An evening to remember!
Apr. 2021 • Couples
This is a family owned business and they did an amazing job of making sure we had a wonderful time and they succeeded!
The ride across the farmland was stunning with beautiful views. After the ride, we went back and juiced sugar cane and made it into candy. They also shared fresh banana bread and banana cheese.
We highly recommend these caballeros!

Amazing horse back tour with unique views and experiences
Feb. 2021
This horseback tour was amazing, and the best part of my trip to Monteverde! It was really affordable for the length of time we spent walking, trotting, cantering and galloping around the beautiful mountains and forests. We stopped for some beautiful view pictures and the guide - who's families farm it was - made sure we were all safe and having a good time at all times.
At the end we also got to experience making sugar cane candy and drinking the sugar cane juice using old equipment. We also received a cheese taco as a snack!
Would recommend to anyone visiting Monteverde.

A great ride that went above and beyond!
Jan. 2021 • Couples
We had a wonderful riding experience. Our guides were very nice and they provided helmets and good instruction for riding. The horses that we rode knew the trail well and were very friendly. This wasn’t a little trail around a family farm, we went a good 7+ miles into the beautiful countryside, through streams and up hills into the greens of Costa Rica. It was so beautiful!! They took us up to see the most spectacular sunset over the mountian ranges. When we came back our guides did a sugar cane mill demonstration and we got to drink sugar cane juice, make our own sugar cane candy and they provided us with a snack from their farm (some really warm delicious cheese tortillas and cake). It was a treat!

I would highly recommend this ride and for all ages! It will be well worth it!

Amazing ride: real and warm family experience
Dec. 2020 • Family
We took a 3 pm tour and were hesitant to let our 8 year old ride by herself. However, they made her dream come true and our tour guide Daniel was very patient, careful and it is evident he loves horses.

They took us around one of the most beautiful farms I have seen around, with forest, crop plantations, creeks and stunning views.

We are ever so grateful to Don Rafa, his daughter, Leo and Daniel for making this the best tour of our trip: they even had an amazing surprise treat for us at the end.

This is a true Costa Rican farm and family business and a labor of love, since horses are well kept and well treated. It was simply delightful and we left the place with a permanent smile.

Beautiful rideout in Monteverde
Dec. 2020 • Family
The rideout with the Equus Monteverde was awsome! The tour guids were super friendly, my horse was easy to handle (btw I'm a experienced rider) but even for beginners the horses do well. And in my opinion the horses do look good. I just don't liked the short cutted tails but beside that everthing was okey. The tour we made was really really beautiful! Thanks guys for this cool rideout! I definitely recommend them!

The most beautiful sunset and settings
Feb. 2020 • Couples
It was a fabulous experience! Even though we had a VERY limited experience with horses before, the guide gave us very mild horses so the whole ride was very smooth. The scenery is breathtaking and if you do it on a sunny day, you arrive at the mountain top just in time to see the sunset :)
