Omschrijving van de beoordeling

Finca Soley is a horse project and volunteers are completly involved in everything. Our volunteers recieve natural horsemanship lessons and a spanisch course in order to activly help in the training of the horses and the teaching (weather in the school or riding lessons for kids).


Finca Soley is a very small project that really tries to change something here in the area but also for the horses that get in touch with people that have been with us. We will touch your idea about horses and horse training. Spread the word to create a better world for our beloved horses and the people around them.

Finca Soley is a beautiful Guestfarm in the mountain area of Cartago, Costa Rica's best kept secret. Enjoy seeing and hearing horses neighing outside my balcony doors, watching the volcano smoke early in the morning, cooking over a beautiful fire pit.

2024 at Natural Horsemanship and Farmwork on Eco Lodge

Isa and Milton have created a wonderful living/working environment with Finca Soley. Because of its location, somewhat isolated, high in the mountains, it is somewhat cooler in the evenings and therefore very pleasant. I spent a month doing a combination of farmwork (3 days a week) and natural ...

2024 at Natural Horsemanship & Classical Riding

*****Statement of the organization below***** Accommodation: I paid extra for the private room, which was fine, but the washing machine and dryer were right against the outside wall so I had constant noise while everyone was washing their clothes sometimes in the evening. The bed was full of bugs ...
Everyone at Finca Soley was truly amazing. Isa and Milton were wonderful hosts, and we truly learned a lot about Costa Rica, the people, the surrounding environment, and caring for the horses. Being in the mountains, away from the "rest of the world" allowed us to focus our daily tasks, and ...
I had a blast working there and meeting all these amazing people. The horses are very well behaved and you really get to learn alot from Isa and her horses. Everyone at the farm was so welcoming and open - you just can‘t feel not included. The work and training is nicely balanced and you have alot ...
I stayed at finca soley for about a month. I was really struggling with my mental health before I got there. Costa Rica’s sun & nature helped me a lot. Everyone on the finca is very welcoming & friendly. The work was hard but in the afternoons we had time to read, go on hikes or just relax. Some ...
I am thankful to have been able to stay as a volunteer at Finca Soley for 2 weeks this summer. The picturesque views from the pasture alone are enough to make this trip worth it, but the farm is home to 10 amazing horses that I was able to work with every day, and were truly the highlight of my ...
