We took a two hour horsriding tour at Harris. Although we did not make a reservation, we could start right away. It was my first time riding a horse, and I got a really nice and calm horse. The instructions before we started were very clear. My wife had a little more experience, and she got a more demanding horse.... More

My friend and I came here for a horseback riding excursion into the jungle for a few hours. The horses are well trained, well taken care of, and extraordinary animals. As we rode around the different farming trails at the base of Maderas, we had spectacular views of the entire island. While neither of us had rode horses in a... More

My wife is a very experienced rider and I am a novice. We contacted Haris via email and set up a ride with them a day before. We stayed at Xalli and hired a taxi to take us to and from the Haris place. The drive was about 25 minutes from Xalli. The horses here are all very well taken... More

From the moment Haris picked me up from El Zolipote I knew I was in for a great day. We arrived at his farm and I was greeted warmly by Giovanni (Haris's friend) and pointed in the direction of the horses. I had chosen to do the 3hr trip through the forest ending at the lake; I had originally wanted... More

We stayed here for two nights after climbing Volcano Conception. Lovely log cabin and friendly staff. The breakfast was great too - probably one of the best we had whilst in Nicaragua. Took a 2 hour horse riding class with Hari up the volcano. I haven't ridden a horse in years and found it really good fun. Hari makes sure... More

Great teacher and great riding location, to the most spectacular view. Horses are well cared for and obviously well-loved.

If you have the time to get out to Hari's Horses on Ometepe, it is worth the trip. He provides horse tours and also has very cute rooms to rent - it is a very bohemian environment, wonderful in fact. Hari is very serious about the care of his horses, and also giving people a memorable experience. We had a... More

These riding lessons were wonderful for myself, my two young children, and our aunt who recently had hip-replacement surgery. All of us were complete beginners with different comfort levels being on the horses, and each one of us received just the right kinds of encouragement and feedback. (PLEASE NOTE: Our lessons were with Debbie, a South African teacher who is... More

I was 12 the first time I was on a horse. No lesson; they just put us on the horses at camp and left the rest to fate. The horse started to cantor. I was terrified and tried to get it to slow down. The horse did what it was supposed to do - it followed the leader, not me.... More

I took the 8 hour horseridingtrek which was great! My guide Carlos only spoke Spanish, but I didn't mind because I could practice my Spanish that way. My horse was great and well taken care of! I would recommend this tour when you're experienced, for beginners it's too much.
