Horseback riding on Isla de Ometepe

I am looking for horseback riding recommendations on Ometepe. I am experienced and like to run the horses, rather than go for a trail ride. Has anyone had good or bad experiences with horseback riding on the island? I would love to find a good place with good horses to do some riding, not just a slow trail ride.

Thank you!

Most of the horses that you can rent I have seen in Santa Marta. But keep in mind, it's the dry season and some of them look skinny. Not sure I would want to run them to much. :(

yeah, we rented horses when we were there. They did allow you to run them. I did not, mine had enough trouble just walking. His back legs kept going out. Turned out he was in his 20's. I am pretty light <120lbs. Hate to think of him carrying anyone bigger.

You might read the reviews on Haris Horses, we did not use them. He seems well respected. I don't know who we rented from...

I loved Ometepe just wished I would have hiked the falls rather than taking that poor horse.
