“Horse play punta cana fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We booked our day on their web site several weeks before traveling to PC. Kathy contacted us to arrange hotel pick up. What an absolutely fantastic time we had. The river ride was beautiful and rustic yet very easy for the four of us non riders. We were joined by two other guests from NY. We had four guide riders, and each of them took a turn explaining the country side, the animals, vegetation etc. The zip line was next and it was so much fun and very well organized. Lunch was great. I highly recommend this adveture as the day was so well organized and so different from the crowded tour bus scene.

“Horses”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Horses on beach was fun. Easy to handle and well behaved. Beach mostly although they should pick up garbage washed up from beach.

“A great river ride!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We visited HorsePlay Punta Cana on Saturday, December 29, 2012.

I found the ranch on their very helpful website. I traded several messages with Kathy, the co-owner. She was nice and gave us lots of good information.

The ranch is an easy, about one hour drive from Bavaro beach where we stayed.

Jose, the co-owner, met us upon arrival. The ranch is clean and well-cared for. We used the clean facilities and headed off on our ride. Jose led the four of us on the ride and another guide was in back. We ventured in and out of the river several times. It was a very unique experience. At one point, the river was almost up to the horses' bellies. Our girls, ages 15 and 11, loved it.

We rode for about an hour and then stopped in a little village. We stopped for sodas and snacks. Then, we rode about an hour back to the ranch. In addition to the river, we saw mountains, cows, chickens, goats and rustic buildings along the two hour route.

When we returned, we changed into short pants and then ziplined across the river. The two ziplines give you a great view. You can do them as many times as you would like.

An enormous Dominican feast was waiting for us. The food was fresh and cooked right there. The pumpkin soup, fried chicken and coleslaw were highlights. I wish they had Coca Cola Light (diet Coke) as a drink choice.

There are chickens, a bunny and peacocks all over. The kids loved that.

It is a well run, family-friendly excursion. We highly recommend HorsePlay Punta Cana - there were many horse rides along the beach in the Punta Cana area. We chose this one as it is in the countryside - we got to see how real people live and work. It was a lovely setting away from the beach which made it a nice change. Jose was especially kind to us, and Cesar drove us back to our car.

“A must do!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

took my hubby and two girls during our trip to Dominican. We visited on Thanksgiving Day (for us Americans) and it was soooo much fun. Great experience, friendly staff and totally safe. A must do. Food was yummy and perfect. Highly recommended - horse back riding, zip lining, and buffet all in one visit. Awesome staff!!!!! Thank you for the experience!
