Costa Rica Horseback Riding Vacation
The Costa Rica Riding Company is a small, locally owned business located in the Province of Guanacaste, Costa Rica near Potrero, Flamingo, Huacas and Tamarindo . The Company is operated by Swedish-born Tina (Christina) Rahm. Rahm has lived in Costa Rica more than 30 years. As the horseback riding tour guide for Costa Rica Riding Company, Rahm points out the plant and animal life during your horseback riding holiday. She is multilingual, fluent in Swedish, Spanish, French and English.
The company operates its ranch “Finca Nimboyore” in Tempate, Costa Rica. This area was populated by Indians seven hundred years ago. To this day, there are still pieces of pottery found, representing some of the best era ceramics. Pottery is still made and sold today in a nearby village using the same methods and designs that were used hundreds of years ago.
Everything you need for a Costa Rica Horseback Riding Holiday
The Costa Rica Riding Company is equipped with all that is needed for a horseback riding vacation; horses, transportation for the horses, 4 wheel drive vehicles for intra tour transportation of riders, ranch hands that attend to the horses and a full working ranch “Finca Nimboyore” to create an ideal riding experience.
History of the Costa Rica Criollo Horse
Costa Rica Riding horses, criollos, originate from the Spanish Horse that the conquistadors brought to Costa Rica. Most stand about 15 hands, although there are a few taller ones in the company. These horses are known for their comfortable gait, surefootedness, and even temperament. Western tack is used. The saddle has canvas sides and plastic stirrups so that you can ride bare legged and in the water. English tack is also available on request.
