Once again I had the pleasure of visiting Joyce and the staff at Rancho Lorilar. During my 2 weeks stay in Playa Dorada I went up to the ranch 5-6 times. Now and then riding with a group- now and then alone with the guide Rafael. Even if I have been there many times I never get tired of the... More

Me and my family had a great time riding the mountains with these experienced and skilled guides. I had only been riding a horse twice before but I still found myself enjoying the ride up and down the mountains. The ride went through the jungle on the montainside, across streams going down the hills and we even had a stop... More

Having visited the Ranch a few times on our holidays to Puerto Plata, we decided to take our six year old daughter this time. From the moment we got to the ranch she loved it - cats, dogs and, oh yes, the horses! She rode with a real life cowboy and loved it. Joyce were her usual bubby self. Nobody... More

I was the only rider that day, so got a private tour! Book here in advance, they will pick you up at hotel/resort. Started by riding... More

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
