I have loved and been drawn to horses for as long as I can remember (18 months old say my parents) and I am now almost 51yrs. I was taught to ride on my best friend’s brother’s motorbike at 8yrs. I got to ride my first horse when I was 12yrs until 16yrs. I finally got my first ‘proper’ riding... More

This was our third time to Costa Rica and the best activity we have done. We did the waterfall/spa ride and had an amazing time. This was our first time riding horses and felt at ease. The horses are rescues and very well trained. The tour takes place on a family farm whose mission is to preserve nature. We saw... More

3+ years ago, we first came to Jaco for a week-long horse adventure with Andrea & Chris Wady at Discovery Horse tours, a fully licensed business. It was incredible then and it's only gotten better. Andrea continues on her quest for the best natural horse training methods and all her horses show the amazing results. Never slaved to one method,... More

Andrea and Chris are top notch guides. Andrea spends endless time working and loving her incredibly beautiful healthy horses As a horse owner, I... More

What can I say, this adventure is amazing! I found Discovery through tripadvisor, and was shocked to see all excellent ratings (which are well deserved), and when visiting the website, was impressed her mission with these animals, we have our own horse, and will only use outfitters that care well for their horses. Andrea took us through the jungle, teaching... More

This was the highlight of all activities we did in Costa Rica! It was such a serene experience! The tour takes you through the rain forest while the guide talks to you about the plants, animals, and the birds you might see on your way. We were lucky to see the blue butterflies (they are huge and radiant in color!),... More

I've done this tour twice, once with my husband and then again, with my son. This tour is like no other!! The farm is beautifully scenic with so much to see. The horses are equally as beautiful and so well-cared for...each with a unique and gentile personality. We rode through fields and jungle with a mid-ride stop at a natural... More

I did this tour with my husband, 16 year old daughter and her friend. We had an incredible time! Safety is a priority for the riders and for the horses. Her training methods for her horses are wonderful. Each horse is a rescue and they are all so happy and calm and well maintained. Our guide was Andy (Andrea) and... More

Everyone at the farm was super nice and knowledgable. All the horses were so fantastic. The tour itself was amazing...saw a bunch of cows and wild birds. My 11 year old daughter and I really enjoyed the mud bath as well. The farm is beautiful!!

We were late by a half hour, our mistake, but Andrea and Chris waited patiently for our family of five. This ride is one of a kind, beautiful, animals, and beautiful scenery, and a very intimate and professional private tour. Andrea and Chris were fantastic at pointing out all the plants and animals along the ride. We saw a wild... More
