 Costa Rica Horseback Trek to the Beach & Parelli Workshop with David Lichman  
January 2-9, 2011

5 Star Parelli Professional David Lichman will be coming to Costa Rica for a two day workshop Jan 8th & 9th. The workshop will be held at Esterillos Este, one of the most beautiful and pristine beaches on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Barking Horse Farm is organizing this workshop to coincide with a 5 day horseback riding trek from the mountains to the beach, arriving in time for the workshop. Experienced riders will love our healthy, responsive horses trained with Parelli Natural Horsemanship Techniques. Study with David for two days with the horse that you have bonded with over the course of the week long trek.
• marvel at the breathtaking views as you and your horse climb the heights of rugged mountains
• learn about local history as you follow abandoned ox cart roads
• bird watch as you ride through vibrant tropical rainforests
• discover how pineapples and bananas grow as you traverse private farms
• gallop down nearly deserted beaches and play with your horse in the ocean
• experience true Costa Rican hospitality and local cuisine
