A repeat guest from Hacienda Guachipelin writes about his riding experience with us:
I discovered the hacienda guachipelin back in 1999 when my daughter spent one year of post-graduate studies in San Jose (Costa Rica). We spent one week at guachipelin, went riding all day and have been coming back at least one a year ever since.
I, various members of my family as well as relatives have been riding horses in many countries over the years. When guachipelin refers to horseback riding in its brochures or website, it is not doing justice to what it really is. It is quite extraordinary!!
The horses are unlike any others. They are very agile, extremely good-natured, responsive and have lots of stamina. Saddles and tack are in great shape. Riding is tailored to individual abilities – if you like to ride fast, this is the place you want to be! The terrain, the scenery, the trails or open spaces do invite you to enjoy riding the way it should be.
And you are being accompanied by the most friendly sabaneros you will ever meet – they are there to make your experience more enjoyable, not to tell you to stay in line or don’t do this or that. You ride thru herds of cattle, pregnant mares or mares with their offsprings, yearlings – all in beautiful peaceful country side. If you like to ride horses and like to feel free – guachipelin is the place!!
If you are a beginner or an intermediate rider, the horses selected will be especially gentle and very caring sabaneros will make sure you will have a great time.
So, to the discrimininating horse lover and rider, hacienda guachipelin is where you want to be. Not to forget the very comfortable accommodations and great food, drink and entertainment. Don Rene, our guide is a local mature, sincere horse loving and knowledgeable person.
