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

Hari is an excellent and extremely knowledge guide. He knows his horses well and can perfectly match a rider to a horse. We took a 3 hour ride to see Petroglyphs that were carved on rocks near the lake. Both of us being new to horse riding, Hari took us through all of the steps. He made sure that we... More

We had the most incredible time with Haris and his crew. We stayed for 3 nights on his property and I could have stayed longer! The views on his land are breath taking and his staff is wonderful! We took a 3 hr horse ride with him and never felt safer, as I am not a horseman. He also paired... More

I have nothing but good things to say about all the wonderful folk of Hari and Mirca's Finca!!!! Great people, wonderful conversation (They speak Italian, Spanish, English, German, Portuguese, Portanhol, "Portinghol", Hindi, ... .), fantastic horses (I did a 4-hr ride to the waterfalls and then an 8-hr ride around that part of Ometepe.), good food, a beautiful finca, clean/beautiful...

This is one of my best riding-experiences while traveling- and I have been riding in all parts of the world since 25 years. The horses are in very good shape and well trained. Also the stables and equipment were well taken care off. Harry is a very responsible horseman. He takes great care of his customers with respect of their... More

We loved this excursion on Isla Ometepe! The horses were so well trained and attentive. The trip to the waterfall was an adventure and Hari was extremely helpful throughout the planning. Our advice would be to stay overnight at Hari's to enjoy the area fully.
