I booked this excursion based on great reviews on Trip Advisor. I planned the day with Joyce via email and she was very helpful with tips and thorough instructions. We came prepared the day of the ride with towels and bananas for the horses. We stayed at Lifestyle Tropical Resort and were picked up right at the security gate -... More

Went riding at Rancho Lorliar, had an excellent time. The horses were great, the Processional Cowboys comments were for Canadiian horses and not Dominican horses, totally taken out of context and should be ignored. They have had tough times as all of the Dominican but are working hard to build the stock up. Easy to critize but do not under... More

During my two week stay I went to the ranch 4-5 times. I must say that I was very well taken care of, from the moment I was picked up at my hotel to the moment I was taken back in the afternoon. I had both half an full day trips. The guides were very polite and friendly. And I... More

She was prompt to return any emails sent. The cost was $70/person for the day ride. This included lunch made by a local person (best food we had our entire week!). We... More

As a professional horseman travelling. To the dominican to ride horses I was very disappointed. Joyce. Seems like a very nice lady so does the staff.. Unfortunately the physical health of the horses is the greatest concern. Malnutrition and over all lack of proper medical attention was fully apparent and visible I'm sorry for my truth in this review I... More

I was here a few years back (2011) and it was amazing. I emailed with Joyce before leaving Canada, so I came down with the phone number and a few dates in mind we'd talked about. I called them from the resort, and they arranged to pick me up in the morning just outside the front gates. It was so... More

My husband and I recently visited the Rancho Lorilar. We did the half day tour, which was about 3 hours total. Make sure to wear long, comfortable pants that you do not mind getting dirty. Closed toed shoes (we wore water hiking shoes) are must. Also, wear sunscreen as you are in the sun for quite a bit of the... More
