The El Rodeo stable is among the best stables for horseback riding in Costa Rica. Their healthy horses are great looking and well taken care of; they are also quite well trained. You will be met in the lobby of Monteverde Lodge for the 10 minute drive to the stables.

After signing a release form and being fitted for your helmet, the stable manager will pair you to your horse. There is a long string of rides to choose from. Meet Somoza (former dictator of Nicaragua), Paloma (Dove), Trueno (Lightning), Betun (Shoe Polish) and Macha (Blondie) after a sniff and a look into each other’s eyes the Stable Manager will know if it’s a match.

After a short lesson, you are off to the Finca. Originally a dairy farm, Finca El Rodeo has extensive pastures, coffee and banana plantations, panoramic views of the Gulf of Nicoya and patches of secondary forest. Ride for approximately 1.5 hours and return to the stable for the short drive back to Monteverde Lodge.

This experience is available for all levels of riding ability.
