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.

We chose the 4 hour ride up to Cascada San Ramon. Hari asked for our weight and experience. Upon arrival, it was clear he has listened to what we said as our horses fit our experience level quiet well. Hari took the time to give us a mini lesson on riding Western style, to ensure we rode the horses properly.... More

I would highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to se ometepe from the horseback. I have been riding a lot before but my boyfriend have never been on a horse before. He got an extremely kindly horse that helped him learn a lot. The horses are healthy and the owners do really really care about them. Our guide,... More

We stayed for three nights at this location and had a fantastic two hour horse ride with Hari. I would highly recommend you stay here if you can as it is so peaceful, with spectacular views of the two volcanoes. We had a two hour horse ride with Hari close to the base of the volcano through the forest and... More

This was a beautiful location. The horses were well-cared for and great trail animals. We had high expectations for the ride. However, two of our group were not experienced riders, one having not ridden at all before. We were assured that was not a problem. However, Hari had little patience for this. He expected everyone to trot over rough terrain... More
