I just love that - very exciting, must do. horses are bit short, but this makes it even more exotic.

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

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
