The horses are not he usual scrawny trail horses that make you feel sad. Jens horses are well cared for and will go be you a good ride. This area of Guanacaste is quite lovely, with nice hilly trails through the dry forest. You can even book a beach ride! Definitely worth a visit!

This review is long overdue. We had an absolutely wonderful time on our ride at Haras del Mar. Jennifer does a fantastic job! I looked really carefully at stables before visiting Costa Rica since I'm an experienced rider and my mom is an extremely nervous complete beginner. Haras del Mar looked like it would be a good experience, but I... More

I take my 11 year old daughter here every week for her horse jumping lessons. We were thrilled to find something like this in Costa Rica. The coaching is superb and she is now competing in national tournaments with her own horse that is cared for by the Haras team and Jennifer Dalton. Great job Haras!

My son takes private lesson at Haras del Mar. He cannot wait for his lesson each week and it is very calming for him. Jen and Carly are patient and very knowledgeable. The stables are clean, the horses are spoiled and loved. We love it there! I would give it a 11 out of 10 if I could!

My friend and I enjoyed a morning of horseback riding in the hills over-looking the RIU Palace and RIU Resort in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. The hoses were well cared for and well trained. Our guide was knowledgeable and courteous. We had a good time and enjoyed the scenery. If you are interested in a personal trail ride or a ride... More

I can't say enough positive things. We had a great outing riding to the top of the mountain. The guiding, the horses, the view at the top, the wildlife - all were lovely. Everyone felt great at the end - both the experienced and novice riders. Jen gave good instruction to the newbies when needed. I especially love that these... More

A wonderful warm welcome from firstly the barn dogs, then the people (Jen and Toni) then the horses. It was great to learn that they have rescue horses and dogs who are all in good weight and well cared for. I rode here twice on the trails and enjoyed it immensely. My partner is a non rider and was catered... More
