I bought this as a surprise for my girlfriend's birthday. We were picked up by owner on our address and taken with car. Both owner and guide were really cool guys with which we spent great time joking. We were riding on the beach,through woods and other terrains so it was quite colorful. Really great experience,definitely recommended and thank you for great service

Fun and easy for someone who has never been on a horse

Was fun riding the horses, the driver was nice, the guide was helpful. The horses are well trained and know what they are doing. The gift shop people are kind of pushy and I feel bad that they dragged us away and by the time we got back to where the guide had dropped us he was off on another tour so I couldnt tip him because he really was great. Took alot of pictures and never asks you to pay for them and the guides seem like they really want you to enjoy yourself. Perfect If your new to horses like I am. Just dont let the gift shop guys distract you too much if you can help it.

The views are incredible and it’s a beautiful beach to ride on but there is a lot of pollution and plastic everywhere. The time of horse riding is definitely not 2 hours, more like 45min. The Staff is nice and the horse are well fed and very easy to ride on for a beginner. The main problem is the duration of the ride and the pollution.

One word - A W E S O M E! Fausto, our guide, knows his horses very well - we had a lot of fun and felt very safe. The beach is gorgeous!!! The hotel pickup was included and was on time.

Fausta (sorry if I spelled that wrong) was amazing! We heard he was the best guide and can confirm that fact. We scheduled the night before and everyone was very communicative about pickup time and instructions. They even call you so you have a direct number of the drivers. During COVID, they pick you up in an SUV rather than a van so you don’t have to be nearby other people. Onto the good stuff! The beach ride was stunning. Two hours was plenty of time to see and enjoy everything comfortably. If you show that you are comfortable riding, or have experience, they will allow you to step it up to cantering/galloping. The horses usually switch between walking and trotting for the majority of the time. Wear shoes you don’t care about getting wet and sandy. The one con, which isn’t their fault, is the mosquitos when you go into the jungle areas. I cannot stress this enough... BRING BUG SPRAY! The gift shop is a bit pushy. You don't have to buy anything, so don’t feel bad if you don’t. All in all 5/5. Great time, very very nice tour guides and drivers! I will be doing the mountain ride on my next return to the DR. This is a lifetime memory that my girlfriend and I will always remember together.

Seven Galloping steeds!

Our two guides were terrific! They went out of their way to ensure we all had a good time and were safe. The beach was awesome, the horses well trained, and had an overall great experience. Things to improve. At the end of the ride, we were hassled and pressured to buy souvenirs we didn't want. Felt like we couldn't get a ride back to the boat unless we acquiesced. One other, there was A LOT of litter along the riding trail. So much garbage! It would be quite an effort to clean it all up but would make for such an incredible experience if we didn't see all the trash.

Great experience! We had a wide variety in our group from experienced riders to terrified of horses. Our guide, Fausto, was patient and accommodating, and even allowed the most experienced to gallop with him along the shore. The ride lasted about two hours with a short break mid-way. Some things to know before you go: 1. They will pick you up from your hotel, and you may need to transfer from that shuttle van to another small AWD vehicle which can handle the country roads. This might strike you as sketchy at first but was perfectly acceptable. Don't try to drive there on your own 2. Take cash to tip your driver(s), both coming and going, as well a your horse guide. 3. Like most attractions, you will end up in the "gift shop", which it's a row of huts selling local art and trinkets. You don't have to purchase anything but in our experience, the prices are the same or better than local gift shops, and you can haggle. We would definitely recommend this activity and this group.

We were picked up at the Hard Rock and similar to the previous review, we were transferred into another vehicle. We were a family of 2 adults and 3 teenage girls, we were driven directly to the beach and there were 5 horses waiting, no matching of the horses to each individual and no safety helmets offered. Our guide was fantastic and we did feel comfortable on the beach without helmets, the horses were fairly docile and looked in good condition. We did stop after an hour to stretch our legs, it would have been nice to have been give a cold water at this point rather than at the end of the 2 hours. Our representative had bottles of rum with our photos attached to the front, they wanted $30 a bottle we declined, one nice touch was the rep sent me the photos he took via Whatsapp free of charge. It was a great day and lovely going in the water on a horse, we were not offered a visit to the ranch but to be honest it was boiling hot and we just wanted to go back to the pool and air con For £150 for the 5 of us it was great cheap fun but they need to sort out the safety aspect
