We love to horseback ride whenever we go away and this ranch was by far the best that I have encountered. Joyce, Rafael and Crazy Alex were so nice. It was my friend's first time in a long time since he had been horseback riding and Alex stayed by him the whole time just to make sure he was comfortable... More

I feel obligated to share my wonderful experience @ Rancho Lorilar. Joyce the lady who operates the Ranch is very nice with a great sense of humour. The entire staff were knowledgable and personable. Scenic countryside is breathtaking. A must-do if you're visiting Puerto Plata. Thanks again guys :)

Best trip... beautiful scenery ... just what we wanted. Great tour Guides. I felt safe and great conversation and humour. We have never been on a horse before, this short scenic ride is for every level of rider. Paid $50 for 1/2 day ride. They are insured. *** Call Joyce directly to book your excursion!!! Don't go through the hotel.... More

Firstly I am disappointed to see someone has reviewed on here saying the horses are dirty. How is that helpful? They are animals what would you expect?! My partner Stuart and I visited the Dominican at the end of October/November this year for the first time. From looking through trip advisor I contacted Joyce as this activity sounded pretty good....

Best trip of our holiday, great ride, fab scenery, lovely funny guides who spoke excellent English, very friendly and well trained horses. Joyce was so welcoming and put everyone at ease straight away. Would def recommend this trip as a 'must do' activity, the best way to see Dominican Republic 😀😀

I know that Dominican republic is a developing country but the horse ride was very short and the horses were very dirty

I booked the trip before we we went on holiday- so much better than waiting until you get there and making the arrangement through the tour operator. Joyce emails back straight away-nothing too much trouble. We did the full day ride, which started when they came to the hotel to pick us up. Our horses were ready and the beauty... More

Joyce was fast and efficient emailing and arranging my half day of horseback riding. They picked us up at our hotel, 20 minutes away. The tour guides were funny, very good English and explained the history along the way. My husband and I had done the half day but wished we had done the full day. The horses were very... More

My wife always wanted to try horse riding so we decided while here in the Dominican we'd go for it. We booked through the hotel but after speaking with Joyce wish we'd gone direct. We were picked up by a small mini-bus and driven to the Ranch we were greeted by Joyce and the ranch hands. Joyce took us through... More
