We had pre-booked with Joyce for my husbands 40th and I'm so glad we did. We didn't get to meet her sadly as she was travelling but we met 'the boys' and we were excellently looked after! We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel as part of the full day package. Crazy Alex and our other guide... More

I am an avid rider have owned my own horses and have been on a few useless horse riding trips abroad, the horses have been made to plod along following each other round a path.My experience was completely the opposite and these horses are certainly not plodders. But don't be put off by this. I learnt to ride English style... More

I am a avid horse rider and generally don't go horse riding in a beach resort as it is generally not very challenging .. Here at Rancho Lorilar I had a wonderful half day ride led by 'crazy Alex' .. A great horse called El dorado made up the other half of a great morning riding through the lush Dominincan... More

My friend and I booked a full-day excursion (around 80US$) at Rancho Lorilar and it is definitely one of the highlights of our trip! When they say full-day, it's about a 4hour day with on and off riding. People usually book the half day so we had two guides for the two of us and they made sure we had... More

Make sure you book here instead of the excursions with the hotel/airline. Joyce and her boys are awesome! Joyce herself greets you with open arms and nicknames to help her remember your name. She's witty, hilarious, and full of life. Her guys are friendly and put up with Joyce's craziness haha. The horses are taken really good care of. I'm... More

We had a great time, the owner and guys were very friendly and professional and understanding, It was good value for money and the whole thing was well run. The photos you could buy were both good and reasonable but there was absolutely no hard sell. They stopped for you to take photos of the views and the guys took... More

We had a great day out at lorilar ranch. The boys do their best to match horse with rider, which I was grateful for since it's a long time since I had been in the saddle. They were watchful to make sure we were all coping on the ride even though we were part of a large party on day... More

The ride was very good and the guides Crazy Alex & Pedro were great as well as Joyce at the camp. Make sure you put on some bug spray before touring. The only thing that was rough was the saddles were well worn and for me that was rough as well as for my girlfriend. Thanks Alex! Glad I requested... More
