Pacific Coast Beach Ride, Costa Rica


Today, we took a sunset beach ride on the Central Pacific Coast, which was beautiful. Monica and Sebastian and I headed off through flat marshland and pastures on the way to the beach. I was on Pinata and Monica rode Perla. The Pacific beaches are a bit more calm and less rocky than the Caribbean side beaches. Cantering and galloping along the beach is a freeing experience, once you get your horses used to the crashing waves. It's something new if they have never been there before.

It look all of us a little while to get our horses to go into the water. My horse Pinata was very afraid of the waves at first, but we were able to get in after a few tries and after some of the other horses got in as well. We were able to stay on the beach through sunset, a beautiful end to our beach ride.
