“Absolutely Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

You cannot meet anyone more friendly, caring or safety conscious than Hawe and Beate. They treat their horses like their children, they are well groomed and cared for extremely well. The horses are well behaved for novices, but are not lacking in spirit for the experienced rider. The options are there for good riders to canter down the beach, as well as a slow, controlled walk for the nervous rider and children. I have taken several friends to Hawe and Beate's who were scared of horses and wished to overcome your fears. They did so riding with Beate in a single ride.

In addition to the beautiful scenary their tours are very informative about the local plants and wildlife, including the local crocs.

Tour options are generally 2 - 3 hours and are well worth the money. All my friends and I go back several times, each and every time we go to Nosara. Riding with Hawe and Beate is the highlight of our trip every time. One additional benefit is the option to ride with an english saddle as well as western.

So if you wish to have a safe ride on well cared for horses this is the place. I highly, highly recommend it.

“Excellent though pricy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2010

My family went horseback riding with Hawe and Beate during a recent visit to Nosara and it was a memorable outing. Their prices are higher than you might expect to pay in CR but balanced against that the excursion was of the highest quality, with a lot of information about the human and natural history of the area, they made a determined effort to find monkeys for us and showed us some absolutely fantastic scenery as we rode along Playa Guiones and Playa Pelada.

We are very much novice riders - my 10 and 11 year old girls had never ridden in their lives before - but we were given very clear instruction and the horses were extraordinarily docile and well-behaved. The owners had gone to the extent of renting two animals especially for us since they felt that some of the horses in their own stable would be too spirited.

It was a memorable way to spend a morning and something that we will definitely repaeat when we are lucky enough to return to Nosara.
