My family of five, including children aged 9, 11 and 13 had a terrific time at Discover Horse Tours. Two of my kids had never ridden horses on their own before. Andy gave us all a quick lesson and made it easy. The horses are all rescued from other areas and very well cared for by Andy and her staff.... More

A few short days ago we took a private tour on their RESCUE horses through the beautiful rain forest. The tour was a fact-filled balance of rain forest excursion meets spa-treatment. Our wonderful tour guide provided plenty of relevant facts, while keeping us on pace and helping with the horses. We were both novice horse riders, so Andrea provided a... More

I was visiting Jaco as part of a yoga retreat. Besides the AWESOME yoga, our event planner had several activities planned for us, and this was my favorite. Riding through the rain forest on these gentle, intelligent horses was the way to see it all, as far as I'm concerned. You're up a bit higher, and you don't have to... More

It's always a little hit and miss when you book an excursion in a foreign country. Yes, you can research and read the reviews, hoping to make sure you have ticked every box prior to selecting who to spend your time with. Yet, there is always that risk that the tour is a let down, and you feel like just... More

What a great way to end our trip in Costa Rica. If you are an animal lover, this is the place for you! If I die and am reincarnated as a horse or dog, I want to stay here. Their animals are definitely loved and respected. Great email communication, even the night before the trip when we asked to change... More

This was our second trip with our young family to Costa Rica and our first riding experience there. From the moment of arrival we realized we had stumbled upon a unique experience. Andrea and Liana greeted us with warmth and grace and it was obvious within moments they treated their guests, their environment and most of all, their horses with... More

It's hard to put into words how amazing this experience is. Andrea was the guide for my teenage daughter and me on the jungle spa ride. She was so knowledgable about the area and taught us many interesting things about the jungle. The beauty was beyond words. The mud treatment was fabulous. We have horses we ride all the time...
