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

We had a great day riding horseback. We were picked up at the hotel on time, the horses were ready and the guides were great. On the full day ride there is an authentic Dominican lunch included and it was really good. They were also great at making sure my girlfriend could eat the lunch (allergic to gluten). We were...

On May 12th I had the pleasure of doing a full day tour with Ranco Lorilar. There are not enough stars to appropriately rate my experience. I had only ridden once before (at another location) and let me tell you, I swore up and down on a stack of Brugal that I would NEVER put my fat butt on a... More

We did the half day tour which I cannot rate highly enough. Joyce is one the nicest, funniest and most welcoming people you will meet in the Dominican Republic...we accidentally met her in the supermarket the next day and she was lovely ('m sure she thought "who the f*** is this:) )....we weren't stalking you Joyce honest :) The guys...

On April 7th my husband treated me to the full day ride seeing that I own my own horse. Only the 2 of us and 2 guides (Roberto and Alex). What an amazing way to see the country; do it just for the relaxation and enjoyment of the animals. Crazy Alex is a real horseman and took care of my... More

My husband and I did the full day ride. It was only the two of us, plus two guides. Horses were well behaved and we enjoyed the tour. My only advise is for the ladies to wear a good tight sports bra, cuz it was rough on the breasts!

I spent two weeks in Puerto Plata and rode at Rancho Lorilar 7 times. Each ride was fantastic and different depending on who was on the ride that day. I rode a couple horses that I hadn't ridden before and each one of them was better than the one before!! I would take each and everyone back to the States... More

Went riding with my husband and brother, first time on a horse i was very frightened, but i could not have been in safer hands. Alex looked after me very well and by the end of the ride i was enjoying myself. Can't wait to go horse riding again. Thank you all very much. The trip and the video were... More
