We returned after coming here in oct and couldn't wait to return we enjoyed a full day ride with lunch. The lunch is amazing and better than any of the resort food. We were picked up in a lovely air con car and greeted by Joyce and the dogs. We brought treats for the dogs and bananas for the horse... More

I got roped into doing this excursion by my girlfriend. At the time of booking this trip I had never sat on a horse in my life and at 34 years old I didn't really want to either. A couple of days before we visited Rancho Lorilar we did an excursion that involved approx 20 minutes of horse riding and... More

Once again another brilliant time with Joyce, Rafael, Alex, Pedro, Angel, Adrian and not forgetting the wonderful horses. It is truly a delight to ride in the mountains around Puerto Plata. You see life as it is lived, not just the tourist areas. The horses are beautifully cared for and lunch is as simple fare but you won't eat better.... More

We booked this trip from the UK. Very simple to do, we just emailed through the trip advisor site. Joyce emailed back almost straight away and we arranged the date of the trip. We were picked up from our hotel and did not have to pay until we reached the Ranch. We received a very warm welcome. We are novice... More

We visited last Monday 06/15/15 and it was worth every penny. You get to see real Dominican living and the views are amazing. We rode very well trained horses and for a first time rider learned how to steer in under five minutes. The guys are awesome and make you feel welcome. The village residents were nice as well. Stopped... More

100% recommend this excursion. By far this was the best one we did out the whole holiday. Totally authentic, you see sights you would never get to see in a vehicle and at a pace where you can really appreciate it all. The horses are clearly very well looked after and all the staff are super friendly. Joyce makes you... More

I always research the best things to do in the area when I go on holiday, and I stumbled upon this attraction whilst scouring Trip Advisor. Although I have fond memories of horse-riding as a child, it has been years since I'd even sat on a horse before my trip to Puerto Plata. I managed to convince my partner that... More

My family and I really enjoyed the horseback riding at Rancho Lorilar. We were there the last week of May during the off season and so we were the only ones in our group. The ride goes through the country side, farming areas and then wraps up with a short distance on town roads. The kids loved it! Be sure... More
