Thank you for a very wonderful trip with great organization and company. Here are a couple pictures you might want to use. Costa Rica is a wonderful place; just a pity that it is so far from Scotland.

Sarah Davis & Mike Simm

The horse trip went well. The horses were well matched to each of us. The scenery along the ride was gorgeous, and our guide (I forgot his name) was very helpful and kind. Thanks again for your help!
