I am a very inexperienced rider, but was taken out by Toni, who rides with Haras a few times a week. We got on very well and had a lovely time doing the 1 hour ride to a look out from where we could see the ocean. Jackpot was the most patient horse... Jen went out of her way to... More

Brian (or Bryan, sorry for the mispelling) and his wife run this company, and it was a pleasure to be with them. Costa Rica has many other companies that offer horse rentals like this one, but too many of them are mismanaged where the horses are unhealthy and abused. I will not name any companies in particular, but BE AWARE... More

What an amazing, beautiful, comfortable, delightful horseback ride we had! We did the Top of the World ride first thing in the morning and it was spectacular. Bryan and Jen obviously care deeply for their horses, many of which are animals rescued from bad situations. Our horses (Reatta and Jackpot) were very responsive. The tack was top notch. The conversation... More

Haras del Mar is a well looked after hippic center for all ages and skill. Go for a leisurely stroll to the beach of follow the tracks in Lomas del Mar. By the way, great building lots for sale at very competetive price

The horses are not he usual scrawny trail horses that make you feel sad. Jens horses are well cared for and will go be you a good ride. This area of Guanacaste is quite lovely, with nice hilly trails through the dry forest. You can even book a beach ride! Definitely worth a visit!

This review is long overdue. We had an absolutely wonderful time on our ride at Haras del Mar. Jennifer does a fantastic job! I looked really carefully at stables before visiting Costa Rica since I'm an experienced rider and my mom is an extremely nervous complete beginner. Haras del Mar looked like it would be a good experience, but I... More
