About Horse Jungle

As a young French couple, we arrived at Samara (Costa Rica) while traveling through Central America, and decided to stay. The idea of taking over Horse Jungle imposed itself to us, as we were keen to settle down in this exotic location while living our passion for horses.

Melissa had already been working as a horse riding guide in the French Alps (Savoie, France), and Hugo has been following her and assisting her in her horse riding adventures:

“Horses have been part of my life for more than 20 years, I couldn’t imagine my life without them.”

Costa Rica is a true haven for all nature lovers, and we enjoy all the activities it has to offer: surfing, fishing, trekking… We are supported in our endeavor by volunteers who work with us 5 hours a day (3 hours riding horses) against room and board. Having done it ourselves in the past, we believe that it can be a wonderful experience.

We get to meet amazing people, passionate and often very knowledgeable. It is a great opportunity for all to share their passion for horse riding, and a great way for us to keep learning about horses! We have even been lucky enough to receive equine physiotherapists, equine dentists… who proved to be a real asset for our horses’ well-being!

“Our horses are everything to us, they’re so cute, loving and brave… They truly deserve the best!”

Our tours are for us a great opportunity to share our passion and share our knowledge of Costa Rica’s fauna and flora. For our greatest pleasure… and yours!
