Pozo Azul Horse Riding

Many Costa Rican's will tell you that the horse is the ultimate "all terrain vehicle" and that the best, most comfortable way to experience the rain forest is on the back of a well trained horse!

Pozo Azul Horse Riding, Costa Rica

Hacienda Pozo Azul is one of the best places around Sarapiqui for horse riding.

For years the owners and operators of Hacienda Pozo Azul, the Quintana family, have been horse lovers, a very traditional and popular activity in Costa Rica. They have been breeding horses for three generations using the spirited, soft riding Costa Rican Paso horses and strong Spanish Andalucian horses, and lately quarter horses. Their knowledge, experience, guides and their well looked after horses ensure the best possible experience.

This ride will last around two hours and will start with a safety briefing where you will be given helmets, rain ponchos and leggings if you are wearing shorts. The ride follows trails over pastureland, through the rainforest and across rivers.

Other activities at Hacienda Pozo Azul include white water rafting, zip-lining, mountain biking and rappelling. All can be combined with the horse-riding. There is also bird watching, a modern 300 cow dairy and a butterfly farm.
