“Down to earth, friendly and a love for horses, we walked away with grins from ear to ear :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

My girlfriend and I travelled through Ometepe and for my birthday I chose to horseback ride. I went with Haris Horses because I read that he takes care of his horses and that is very important to me. We aren't experienced at all but the horses he put us on seemed to be perfect for us. They are good honest down to earth people and we felt so welcomed by them. The ride was stunning, horses beautiful, calm and responsive and we'll never forget that day (for all the right reasons)

“Great trip up to the waterfall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2011

As we weren't very confident or experienced Hari advised us to do the trek up to the waterfall. It was an amazing 4 hours! Hari helped us get used to riding cowboy style and by the end we were both cantering. It's a very steep path up to the waterfall but the horses are very confident and got us there safely.
The horses are really looked after and cared for which makes a huge difference.
We stopped for lunch at a great comedor in San Ramon with a beautiful view of the lake-take extra money so you can do this! It was under 200 c$ for two meals. Hari didn't charge us for the hour we spent eating either!
It's a bumpy road to Merida from Santa Cruz so Hari organised a transfer to his finca for 10$ all in. If you're serious about riding, he's opening some rooms on his finca very soon which would be perfect location wise. We got a sneek preview and they had a beautiful view of Concepcion.

“Wonderful time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2011

Hari was a very knowledgeable man & clearly cared about the welfare of his horses. He ensures they have their supplements & rests them rather than sending them out every day to work. Also he knows all their characters & idiocyracies. He was great company & good fun, we combined the riding with the falls which I can recommend. At the end Hari shared his beer with us at his home. At the time he was caring for a tiny puppy which had been left for dead. He was a thoroughly nice man. If you choose to go riding, it must be with Hari.

“A perfect ride for all levels of experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

Haris horses is the perfect place to go horseback riding, compared to many other places on Ometepe he and his wife really takes care of their horses which is well worth the extra dollar you pay.

Hari has horses for every level making it possible for experienced and beginners to ride together. If we would have had the time we would have wanted to experience more of Ometepe with Hari riding around the island for a couple of days. But we can truly recommend the tour to the waterfalls of vulcano Maderas which is a beatiful scenery
