We visited as a family of 5 and were immediately impressed by the condition of the horses! They are clearly well kept and loved.

Rod set us up and took us out on the trail, walking alongside our 5 year old’s horse. Very gentle experience catered to the ages of our children. We got tons of information about the horses (who are waaaayyy pampered!!), the area, life in CR, and all the wildlife we encountered.

Halfway through, we stopped for snacks and a drink, then a mud bath and swim - which was delightful and refreshing!

After the ride back to the stables, the kids got a great tour and info about caring for the horses and Rod gave us some recommendations on places to visit while in the area.

Before we were even three minutes down the road, our kids were begging to come back the next day! Simply put, a perfect experience with friendly staff, and beautiful horses!

I'm loving life so much after today my ride. My soul needed it! My birthday was a couple of days ago and this is what I wanted to do to celebrate. It was even better than I could have imagined. My horse was a mellow guy with just the right amount of pep when asked. Our experience included river swimming, mud masks, and sightings of toucans, huge butterflies and other beautiful birds. We even spied iguanas, vultures, hawks, and coati on our drive home after. I'm ready to ride with Discovery Horse Tours again tomorrow already!

I was in Costa Rica for a week and did lots of amazing adventurous and relaxing things. This was by far the best activity of the whole trip!! (it was both adventurous and relaxing - which was perfect) I went with three friends, each of us with different experience levels with horses and Rod perfectly matched and guided us with horses based on our ability and personality. Seeing how well they treat the horses was also so gratifying as I didn't realise before we got there the dedication to rescue this place had - I am wary of tourist places that mistreat animals. Rest assured this is not one of them! We had amazing fruit by the water just before we covered ourselves in mud and went swimming. The water was great, and the mud was amazing for our skin. Rod was so friendly the whole time and a joy to chat with. I would recommend this place to everyone who wants to try it! As a tip - especially if you are going for a swim) make sure to wear clothing that is easy to put back on after getting wet and that is suitable for horseback riding.

Great tour and definitely one of the highlights of our vacation. The owner is very nice and cares about his animals. They are all rescued which made this trip even more special. The place is fairly easy to find and get to. Highly recommended.

One of the highlights of my whole trip! We rode through luscious green jungle, stopping to picnic at a beautiful waterfall. Rod was super informative and a wonderful and thoughtful guide. He takes incredible care of each and every horse. Highly recommend!

Had a great experience for my 10 year old son with the overall care that Rod provided for our family. The horses are very well cared for, and even though it’s down a bit of a beaten road it’s well worth the drive.

Rod was a wonderful guide with a wealth of knowledge about flora and fauna. The way Rod and Shawna treat the horses and their incredible mission to save horses from being mistreated was heartwarming. I would not miss this experience - and if you are not a horse person, I would still encourage you to give it a try to support two people (and their staff) as they dedicate their lives to saving animals. The property is beautiful and very peaceful.

While in Costa Rica my kids (9) and (7) really wanted to find a place to horseback ride through the jungle. There is no shortage of these services in the Jaco area, but one thing we had heard was that people who did horseback riding did not feel the horses were very well taken care of. After searching for a while we were recommended to contact Rod and Shawna with Discovery Horseback tours. This was the best recommendation that could have been given. The horses that my family and I were on were clearly very well taken care of and such beautiful animals. They also allowed my children to ride their own horses, huge win, while they walked next to the children’s horses for safety. They were very communicative throughout the process and provided us with expectations so we could plan for everything. This was my second time in the area and this was by far the best part of my entire time in Costa Rica. If you are looking to horseback ride I urge you to look no further and book with this amazing company!

Hi Rod! Hope you are well! Wanted to thank you for starting our trip in Costa Rica off in the best way! Our horseback ride was so scenic and beautiful and you made us feel as if we were riding with friends! We enjoyed every bit of that day even back at the stable playing with all the animals. You're lucky you ended up with all your dogs and that my girls didn't take one home! It was especially appreciated that you care so well for your horses! It is apparent that they are part of your family and not just part of your business. They are quite loved. Our next trip to Costa Rica will include a day with you if we are lucky enough that you aren't too booked to have us!
