When I first signed up for this trip I wasn't very excited. As soon as we got to the range, we met Joyce, that's where all the fun starts. She is a lovely and and absolutely amazing lady. Horses are carefully picked for your level of experience. Photos are taken for you and available for purchase when you return to... More

We went on the full day ride on 8/8/14 it was amazing. First off the ride itself is a long one if your not used to riding a horse. But with all the sites and local flavor it is well worth the pain in your rear for a day or two. They take you to a great little spot along... More

After hearing about a horse riding excursion my friend went on when he visited the Dominican Republic some 7 years ago, I decided that I had to experience this as well. So, I did my research and it quickly became apparent that Rancho Lorilar was the place to go. I emailed the ranch directly to book it, and Joyce replied... More

Thanks to Joyce, we felt warmly welcomed to Rancho Lorilar. Our guides saddled us up and we were off on a ride through small towns, past a cementary, and by fields of yucca and beans. Midway we stopped at a cantina for water and soda. A little after our break we stopped at the top of the mountain for a... More

What an amazing experience. This excursion goes way beyond a “horseback ride”. I’m going to guess that, if you’re on the fence as to whether or not you want to do this, your thoughts are focused on whether or not you wish to ride a horse for a day. But it’s not all about that. The horse is just merely... More
