Fun tour
Sep 2021 • Couples
To start off, I’ve been to two other horse tours and discovery horse tours has topped them all. I love how informative and fun the tour was. All the horses are in good shape and seems to be well taken care of. Even after the tour they went ahead and washed the horses and fed them. No identification burns, no scabs, no ribs showing. They even let their horses roam freely. Not only did I have fun on the horses but I also got to experience volcanic mud mask with some yummy snacks. 10/10 recommend!

Through the jungle to the river!
Jun 2021
Shawna and Rod are awesome hosts. We took the jungle experience as one of our activities for my wife's birthday. The views were great, the ride was leisurely which was just the right speed for us (1st time riders), and the conversation along the ride with Shawna and Rod was very informative. Shawna took pictures of us along the ride. It is clearly evident that Shawna and Rod love and care for their herd and pets. Awesome humans!

Fantastic family riding
May 2021
This was the best horse tour we've ever been on! Beautiful trails, fun horses, and incredible people. We always like to support organizations who put animal care first and we were not disappointed. The dedication that Shawna and Rod have for their animals is inspirational. Each horse's individual personality is catered to and such care is taken to make sure they are healthy and happy! Would do this again in a heart beat!

Amazing time with Shawna, Rod and the Horses
May 2021 • Friends
Shawna and Rod were fantastic ! I had so much fun with my family riding the horses. My horse banjo was great. They really do care about the needs of the horses. They tell you the personality of each horse for you to become more familiar with them. They also have several dogs that were the absolute cutest. We did the spa tour where we covered ourselves with amazing mud. It was so fun! The area was so peaceful. They even brought us drinks and some fresh fruit to snack on. They give a lot of informational facts about the area we ride through and just Costa Rica in general! I would recommend this tour to everyone. Experienced rider or not. Thanks again !

Thank you Rob and Shauna for having me and Anna in your ranch. Amazing scenery, Shauna was an awesome guide and horsewoman, she is very attentive to all her rider, very knowledgeable on nature (plants and animal), I feel like I am having a field trip for my biology class.

The horses are all taken care wonderfully, Shauna and Rob know everything about them, which very important for me. Amazing tour, definitely recommend it. Thank you, Best- Diana

10 STARS BEST HORSE EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Apr 2021 • Solo
Shawna & Rod

Can’t thank you both enough for today I have honestly had a beautiful morning with you guys and your amazing horses & other animals.
I feel like I have learnt so much for you both.
You are truly a wonderful couple with huge hearts & how you do what your doing is amazing. The right way - a perfect example for me to follow. I am feeling a lot more confident now about my dream in Spain & how things can be with these strong, beautiful, smart animals. I honestly can’t thank you enough for today and the other bits of research you have given me.

If you are looking for well cared for, loved, relaxed, happy horses then this is the place to come. Shawna & Rod love these horses like they are their children. They are amazing at what they do and have a beautiful set up with amazing, exciting tours to offer.

Hands down the best horse riding excursion I have ever done.

I would give them 10 stars if I could as my experience was beyond excellent.

Beautiful hosts, beautiful horses, in a beautiful environment.

AMAZING ALL ROUND!

Thanks you!!!!!

Ride carefree
Nov 2020 • Solo
Excellent trip. Great fun. Great scenery. Lots of animal life. Shawna very professional and organized and most accomodating. Booked for 6 days package. Their longest rides. The last day to ride on the long stretch of beach was unforgettable. Horses well looked after and handled gently by owner and staff. Highly recommended even for seasoned rider like myself.

Don’t miss this!
My daughter and I had a wonderful day with Shawna and Rod. First, we felt absolutely comfortable that the horses were loved and cared for. They were in great condition. The jungle is beautiful and the trails were a lot of fun to ride. We saw tons of birds, beautiful springs and A SLOTH! So exciting! This is a fabulous day trip!

Amazing Day!!!!
Dec 2019
We were immediately put at ease despite our mixed range of skill levels. The horses are individually matched with riders based on personality and skill level. They are incredibly gentle and well trained putting even our most nervous riders at ease. Shawna, Rod and Peggy are kind, fun, and knowledgeable about the forest, and their animals. They captured the days adventures on our phones which was such a treat. We had a large party and they offered to walk so we could all go out together. The day was truly memorable!

Best experience! Awesome people, wonderful horses
Dec 2019 • Couples
I would definitely recommend Discovery Horse Tours to anyone visiting this area in CR. My boyfriend was on a horse for his first time and everyone went out of their way to make sure he felt comfortable and safe. He ended up having a great time! Peggy was our guide and was so kind and knowledgeable. She took pictures for us and shared her knowledge of the area. We didn't have to worry about ANYTHING. The horses were so well taken care of and beautiful- the healthiest and happiest looking horses I have seen in Costa Rica. Shawna and Rod were the sweetest, most genuine people and they take the care of their horses and customer service very seriously. Their hearts are definitely in the right place! Hopefully we can come back someday.
