I had a wonderful experience! The tour guide gave a very informative tour. She was very knowledgeable about the animals and plants for the area. I had a wonderful time. The horses are recused from abusive situations. They only use natural methods to rehabilitate and train the horses.

My friend and I spent a fantastic morning riding. It was the highlight of our trip. Andrea is so lovely and encouraging, as well as knowledgeable about the area. Her compassion for animals of all kinds is evident. The horses are really relaxed and a joy to ride. The ride itself is absolutely beautiful but Andrea also makes it fun.... More

There is not enough space here for me to write about just how incredible my time with Discovery was. My only regret is that I couldn't stay longer! I am a keen horse rider and horsemanship enthusiast so when I found the website I knew I had found a special place. I travelled alone to Costa Rica in July 2015... More

Andea and Leanna run a top notch operation. They made us feel welcome and comfortable. The jungle tour was fun. And I love the fact that they adjusted the ride according to our riding abilities while making it a safe ride for the horses.

Andy was phenomenal. She made my cranky 12 year old feel like a cowboy. Amazing tour, wonderful well cared for horses. You won't do ANY better anywhere in Costa Rica.

My grandson had never ridden a horse, my Costa Rican friend had never ridden a horse, and my daughter and I had memories of riding when we were children... Andy had a challenge, and she made each of us feel like we were born to ride. She was calm, positive and informative. The horses are rescue horses and the gentlest,... More

Andrea has a special gift with horses. The horses on the farm are very lucky. They are extremely well kept. This excursion was the best of our trip. Andrea is very knowledgable about the history of area as well as the nature surrounding it. Highly recommend this for everyone.
