From floor to ceiling, Caballo Loco Boutique is bursting with Western wear. The highlights and hot sellers are the outrageous selection of cowboy hats for men, women and children, which are the first things you'll see when you step inside this new, air-conditioned shop in Ciudad Colon, in downtown San José, Costa Rica.Cowboy Hats at Caballo Loco Boutique — Photo courtesy of Caballo Loco Boutique
Aside from the cowboy hats, there is pretty much everything else equestrian here; horses adorn clothing, blankets, accessories and gifts of all kinds, making Caballo Loco Boutique a one-stop souvenir shopping locale for you and your horse-loving friends back home.
The Canadian proprietor of Caballo Loco Boutique is clearly devoted to horses, and if you catch her in the shop she'll be happy to tell you about her own nearby farm, “Finca Caballo Loco” in El Rodeo. It's a place you may just be tempted to visit and try out your new horse-friendly gear.
Everything you'd ever need to participate in a Costa Rican horse parade, or tope, is available at Caballo Loco Boutique, right down to bolo ties and leather chaps, including grooming gear and basic tack for your steed.
Caballo Loco Boutique is located in Plaza Colon, local #12 in the center of Ciudad Colon, on the west side of San José.
