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

Quickly heard back from Jen after calling. She arranged a ride for my daughters and I with little notice. The staff are friendly and efficient, and the horses are gorgeous, healthy, and, obviously, loved. Both daughters, 22 and 9, and I had a great ride with the guidance of Toni, who expertly and patiently led us through mountain trails to... More

The horses are spectacular, well cared for and safety is their first priority. The facility is gorgeous and it is clear that all the horses are well cared for. The ride was wonderful and we were rewarded... More

We visited this Equestrian Center on March 28th with 4 young children (3,5,7, & 9). Jen and Git were lovely and wonderful with the kids! The facility is beautiful and the horses were definitely given the greatest of care! Although they do all kinds of trail and beach rides, they are also very safety-minded and entertained the kids with various... More
