Franklin treats his horses and guests really well. Great scenery and fun guides. There are several options to choose from and the guides are great about telling you what you are seeing and how to handle the gentle horses .

I have emailed and received no response. The website leads nowhere. I don't have international calling. Travelling in March to Boquete and would like to book. How do I get in touch??
