These horses have a good life. They know where they are going, and are very sure-footed. We've ridden many places. This one was one of the more challenging because we rode up a mountain trail to visit a waterfall. We had a great time.

Horses were very healthy, well cared for and gentle. There was still a decent hike up to the waterfall itself. Our guides, staff from Finca Montania Sangradia, were very helpful. We enjoyed it a lot.

Hari, who looks like a former rock star is really good at what he does, whilst carrying off an air of coolness. I hadn't ridden before so he gave me a wonderful horse to ride with. Our guides were Carlos and Sarah who were both extremely lovely and helpful- Carlos adjusted my stirrups during the hike and Sarah have us... More

I am so impressed by everything that Hari and his business partners have created in this little tropical paradise. The animals are all healthy and happy (which is a great selling point for me), the views never stop being breathtaking, and the hosts are all delightful, welcoming and helpful. Many thumbs up!

See my review of Finca Montania Segrada it should provide as much information as I could provide here. Additionally, you can go on rides without staying at Finca Montania Segrada. All the horses here are well kept and looked after.

Hari is an animal lover...he isn't so much a people person...but I say that fondly: I liked Hari, I just never got the sense that Hari necessarily liked me. If you are someone who requires coddling or positive affirmation- he's not your guy. HOWEVER: What he does provide is a great ride with well-cared for horses and a huge knowledge... More

I was looking for a place to ride in Nicaragua and Hari's Horses kept coming up as the place to go, and after a couple of rides I know why! I stayed at the farm (Finca Montania Sagrada--check it out if you want a nice place to stay) and took a couple of rides while I was there. Hari is... More

I took the 4-hour horse ride to the waterfalls. Carlos was our guide, and although he didn't speak any English, we had a really enjoyable experience. For two people who have had virtually no riding experience, we didn't experience any problems with our horses. They are all very friendly and well taken care of, which is a nice change from... More

So much to like about Hari's Horses. The location is amazing, quiet, and the cleanest place we have stayed in Nicaragua. Everyone is really nice, warm, and accommodating in so many ways. We (family of 5 with kids ages 12 and 8) took the horse ride to the falls and it was amazing. We had no real horseback riding experience... More

We did a two hour ride with a guide. The guide and the horses were nice, but I'm thinking the other reviewers must have a lot more padding on their behinds than I have. There was a lot of trotting involved on very rocky trails. I own horses, but am used to riding in grassy fields or wooded trails. I... More
