I did this excursion through Thomsons in July with my daughters aged 16 and 14. We rode in a party of seven people with two guides. The animals were as described. If it was the UK there would be prosecutions and a TV programme made due to the poor conditions. Very sad. Half way through the ride we were led... 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

We were looking for a private ride for two. Anniversary trip and a dream to ride on the beach. We booked through the resort and they deal with Rancho Caribeno. It took some doing to make the private ride happen but we got it done. Daniel, our guide, did a great job to make the ride what we wanted but... 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

Hi-light: Galloping oceanside with the wind in your hair. Offered pictures for $ 30.00 USD Low : Ranch is dirty with tons of multiple breeds dogs milling around. They only offer water after 2 hour ride, no snacks or beverages on trail. Guide did not speak English. Ticks on horses.
