I don't really write a lot of reviews but when I had an exceptional service I have to pass it on, so that others can enjoy it too. One of the things on my bucket list is to ride a horse on a tropical beach and it came true. Thanks to Rudy at Rudy's Rancho. It was absolutely a fabulous... More

We did not do a horseback riding tour with Rudy but we did go there and talk to Rudy and check out the horses and the place. We had already booked another horseback excursion so we couldn't change it up. But, next time we'll definitely come to Rudy's Rancho. From what we saw and after talking to others who had... More

We had an unforgettable excursion with Rudy to Playa Rincon. The natural and unspoiled beauty of the beaches, sea, river, trees and mountains were breath taking. These are places you won't be able to see except on horseback. We loved the horses, the ride and the trail. We stayed at Las Terrenas which was just over an hour away from... More

I found Rudy's Rancho site when I was making our vacation plans in Samana. I am an avid horseback rider, and I hoped to find some nice horses to ride. I emailed Rudy and told him about my riding level, and he told me he'd be happy to take me out anytime. He came to meet me the evening of... More

They let you choose how strong you want your horse (i have not ridden in a while so that made me feel very comfortable) and they go with you, a guide in front and a guide in the rear. Very nice people too.

Rode horses through the mountains to Playa Rincon. Rudy was very knowledgeable about the areas we rode through. He watched our bags while we went swimming. His horses were very well trained and easy to ride.

The experience was once in a life time. Rudy is the absolute best, patient and respectful. His excellent people skills and knowledge of the Dominican is reason enough to take.the time on your trip and adventure out with Rudy. Bring a snack, and the horses like fruit and Rudy likes snacks also. I just packed a couple snacks from the... More
