What a BLAST! Really the highlight of our trip, and we did a couple other excursions in Puerto Plata. Our group of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenagers) had a range of experience with horses and we all had a great time. All the staff were fabulous and fun - Joyce was hilarious and had us all laughing a few minutes... More

We were able to reserve a spot with Joyce in advance and we had a wonderful time. Kids loved it as well!!! It was our first experience with the horses so we were a bit nervous in the beginning but the Staff members were very helpful, they gave us a some pointers so it was very helpful. The horses were...

There are many trips to do in Dominican Republic, but we took the 3 eldest kids riding with the team at Lorilar Ranch. Well what can I say…FABULOUS!! Well worth the money and you get 3 rides with drink stops and we only did the basic ride!! We researched the Ranch on Trip Advisor before we went and its one... More

This is well worth doing on your holiday My son is 7 and has never ridden before, as he is 7 he could choose to go on his own horse which he did, under 7 rides with a guide. 'Crazy Alex ' was with our son the whole time and he was brilliant, he had him galloping and splashing through... More

If you're visiting Puerto Plata a trip with Rancho Lorilar is a must. My boyfriend and I spent a whole day with Crazy Alex and Antonio. Alex was able to tell us a lot about the area but knew when to just let us take in the sights. Our horses, Moreno and Blas were great and I even galloped near... More

Myself and my girlfriend who had novice experience riding horses did this excursion based on a recommendation from a friend and we weren't disappointed! Joyce is a wonderful and kind woman and our guides "Crazy Alex" and Antonio were both very kind, patient, attentive and caring. During the expedition you get to ride along paved and dirt roads in urban... More

We had a fabulous day today. Picked up from our hotel, entertained by Joyce who is attentive, funny and a great instructor. The boys took us on our horses (which were picked by our experience or not in our case, weight etc) for our trek. We saw local life and countryside which we would not have otherwise experienced.

Seriously, this is a great experience and is great value for money. Choose half-day or full-day excursion. Great for singles, couples, and families. Horses for all experience levels. Friendly hosts and guides. We are novice riders and have been coming back every year since 2011. It's so easy. They pick you up and drop you off at your resort. The... More
