A friend and I participated in a Horsemanship clinic and vacation with Discovery Horse Tours recently. The horses were happy, healthy, calm on the trails, and very well cared for. Our hosts took time to make sure that we were well matched with our horses, and gave us insights into their personalities. They were very warm, welcoming, safety conscious, and extremely accommodating to all of our needs, going above and beyond to ensure that everything was well planned, our drivers were excellent, and that we had a good representation of activities in the Jaco area of Costa Rica. The trip to the waterfall, with the bentonite mud spa treatment, was a fun experience. I would highly recommend Discovery Horse Tours if you are interested in a horseback tour in the Jaco area. You won’t be disappointed.

The ride was very docile. Loved my horse, Pi. My husband would have liked a faster pace but I loved being able to ride and see the beautiful landscapes and forest. The trip was relaxing and very safe. Great for a child not used to riding or anyone who would like to see the countryside with a very knowledgeable guide. All the horses were wonderful and though I was a little unsure I’d like riding as I haven’t done so for 40+ yrs., I felt totally comfortable and confident as soon as I was on my horse. Our host gave us all the simplest and best riding lesson (5min) I’ve ever had. Very well trained and gentle horses also. This is an operation that love and take true care of and for their horses. As you know or will find, Costa Rica is Very warm and humid. Horses also feel the heat as we humans do and should not be run to death by a company out to please it’s clients by running the horses to sickness. Thank you Disvovery for such a lovely ride and your compassion for your horses. Pura Vita Susan and Mark
