Riding High on Horseback

Sunday morning dawned beautiful here in Monteverde with a bit of mist coming down from the mountain  In the early morning sunshine, it looked almost magical as it drifted past the lodge.  We had breakfast then headed out for the stable. There we mounted the horses and rode off with our guides, one in the front and one in the rear. The trails were a bit treacherous and horses were working hard to keep pace with one another while managing their riders. Once at the top we dismounted and took in the view while enduring fierce winds sustained at 60+ mph.  The sites were beautiful and looking to the west, we could see the Pacific Ocean in the haze of midday heat.

Our ride ended with a tour of the farm and an egg and tortilla snack handmade by our host, fresh fruit.
