Amazing experience!. The instructor, Crazy Alex, was great . Would recommend to everyone. Only reason why i didn't give it a 5 star is because I felt like horses could have been maintained a little better.

Did a two hour ride through the near vicinity of the venue with Rancho Lorilar. It was my first time riding a horse - everyone there was wonderfully friendly, helpful, and the entire experience itself was flawless. The ride itself went up a hill and around the near vicinity, which itself was pretty and provided a pretty diverse array of... More

First thing is when you arrive you meet Joyce who owns the ranch, she is one of the funniest people i have ever met. She makes you feel very welcome and relaxed, explains what to expect and gives you names so she can remember you (I was Tony Montana) and then you are given a horse. The guides are great... More

I went riding last week and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. They cater for all levels of riding and make sure you have a fun filled ride out. Still in Dominican Republic and I am going again for the full day. The only thing I will do differently is to book direct through Joyce as I now know it will be... More

Took my 9 year old daughter today, we are both experienced English riders but got to sample western style. What a fantastic time we had riding through the jungle. We got to canter up hills and through water to squeals of delight !! The horses were well schooled and well looked after. Guides were great fun and looked after us... More

My daughter and I booked a 1/2 day riding trip here through Thomson on Tues 25th October, although if you book direct you can also do a full day trip which includes lunch and a swim. We were advised by our rep to take bananas with us for the horses. When we arrived the marvellous Joyce was there to welcome... More

Action packed half day private ride. I am an experienced equestrian and my companion is a beginner. There is something here for everyone of all riding levels. Book directly with the ranch for the best deal, don't book it through your resort. Ask for Joyce the horse lady! The horses are paso fino/ Arabian mixes. They are gaited and shod.

I've had horses all my life so when we go abroad I'm often reluctant to go on these horseback tours as I wonder about the stress and treatment of the horses. At Rancho Lorilar it's clear to see the horses are happy and of a good weight. The staff were lovely, funny, knowledgeable about the horses and very helpful. Horse... More
