Rancho San Miguel

  andalusian horse  

This stable and stud farm, about 3 km. north of La Guácima,
in Alajuela, raises Andalusian horses and has a tiny museum with capas, saddles, and other miscellany relating to horsemanship.

The highlight is the nocturnal one-hour dressage and
horsemanship show in an enclosed arena to the
accompaniment of classical Spanish music.
It’s a fabulous experience.


Andalusian Show

  Andalusian horse

Although the show is spotlit, it’s quite dark, so you’ll need fast film or a digital camera to capture the action.

The show is offered Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 8 p.m.
(and by arrangement for groups)
The show costs $25, or $37 with dinner, or $42 pp
including hotel transfers, cocktail, performance, and dinner.

At last visit the dinner and cocktails weren’t up to par, but the hosts were intent on upgrading.

The stable offers horse-riding lessons for adults and children.
There’s a botanical garden.
