This was a beautiful location. The horses were well-cared for and great trail animals. We had high expectations for the ride. However, two of our group were not experienced riders, one having not ridden at all before. We were assured that was not a problem. However, Hari had little patience for this. He expected everyone to trot over rough terrain... More

I definitely had the best "rented horse" experience ever with Hari and his perfect horses. I am an experienced rider (sitting on a horse all my life) and Hari is treating his horses perfectly. They are all in good shape and he will find you the perfect horse due to your experience. I did three rides with him, because I... More

I have never ridden a horse before, but Hari was an excellent teacher and had me galloping across meadows halfway up a volcano in no time. We did the 2 hour ride and the view was spectacular. The horses were beautiful and extremely well trained and taken care of.

We recently stayed overnight at Finca Montania Sagrada which is where Hari's horses is based out of. In fact, one of the big draws for us to the finca was that Hari's horses was right onsite and it was listed as one of the premiere horseback tours on the island. Hari took us out, showed us how to handle the... More

Being back on Ometepe a ride at Haris horses was a must. Good well kept horses, well cared for and very lovely place. No matter whether you are a good rider or a beginner, Hari will take good care of you.

We recently traveled to Ometepe for a day trip me and my friend. We made it to Hari's horses on our motorcycle to find Hari expecting us and taking care of offering fresh juices and time to rest before our 3 hour journey in the area. We took a short ride but what a ride! Hari's horses are extremely healthy... More

We confirmed with Hari several times a month ahead. In fact, we stayed in Merida to try out riding with them. When we arrived, Marilene, Hari's wife, literally yelled at us for "missing the date." Fortunately, I had all printouts of my correspondence, upon which she acknowledge it was their mistake. The sad part is she just told us there... More

Of course we cannot expect all reviews to be nice with us! In this particular case Sami contacted us 1 month before coming. His messages to Hari's horses were for reserving a 3 hour tour for 18th February. We do not know why he then wrote at finca montania sagrada changing date. We have a bed&breakfast and we have horse... More

The horses are well treated and looked to be in good health (although I'm not an expert). It was our first real ride on a horse but it was awesome. Nothing to be afraid of. Valentino guided us and showed us the jungle with e.g. beautiful birds, howler monkeys and stunning panoramic views. Be careful with bringing your camera. It's... More
