Our guide was awesome and made sure our safety was #1. We wanted to ride horses on the beach and that we did. It was truly breathtaking and beautiful. Worth your money for sure. Buy the picture cd and dress comfortable.

Moses of Nexus tours reccomended this tour operator after we gave him our requirements. The whole tour was brilliant. The horses were well cared for and did not look weary, were very well behaved etc. The route was great and we walked, trotted and cantered along the beach at a good clip. The scenery was fantastic and our tour guide... More

I was so excited to go horseback riding on the beach! I ride horses in the US and was so excited to do my thing. However, when I got to the ranch, the horses were malnourished and generally uncared for! I told them that their horses are starving and that I would not ride. The owner/manager then proceeded to tell... More

I am an experienced rider and a keen horse lover. However, it doesn't take an expert to see that these horses need more care and attention. I went to this ranch just a week and a half ago and I saw that while the horses have a wonderful nature and are very well behaved, many of them seem quite scrawny... More

I have to say this was one of my all time favorite experiences. We got to ride horses in the ocean, on the beach, back roads, and trails in the woods. It was awesome. I think I had a smile on my face from start to finish. The guides were great and not only take pictures of your group, but... More

True the horses are small and thin. However, these horses looked better than others I've seen in Dominican Republic. The horses had a lot of energy and trotted and galloped nicely even with larger riders. The guides did not use crops or whips, which I have seen at other places. The cows in DR seemed really thin too and they... More

I wish I had never booked this excursion, I felt so sorry for the poor underfed horses :( It was the first time in my life I didn't like the ride.. The horses are so skinny, they have wounds everywere, are stalled in very poor conditions,.. I felt so bad for them.. During the ride we were constantly squished together,... More

The scenery while riding horses is incredible, but several things to be aware of: 1. We were told it would be a 15-20 minute drive to the ranch. It was an hour and 30 minutes. We stopped at several resorts and even stopped to consolidate passengers with another vehicle. All of this added a lot of unnecessary travel time. I... More
