My wife and 8 year old son along with myself received a hearty welcome from Joyce and her staff on our stop here in July 2017. I had not ridden a horse in many years and it was the exciting first time for my wife and son. They were not disappointed. Crazy Alex and Antonio provided much instruction and great care through the full day ride. A fantastic truly Dominican lunch is served along the way and was delicious. This is an excellent way to see some of the real DR. Just the clopping of horse hooves and pleasant company provide an exciting, yet relaxing day! The highlight of this trip to the DR.

This July we booked a trip at Rancho Lorilar, together with my wife and three kids ( 16,12 and 9 ) we had an amazing day. Although three of us were completely inexperienced, we turned into cowboys in just a matter of time. Of course with the great help of the guides crazy Alex and Antonio. Both very skilled to make people feel comfortable and enjoy the ride as much as possible in there own way.
Also the meal by the local family was excellent, i really loved the fried yukos.

Thanks Joyce and the rest

Lovely Regards,

Sander, Monique, Jurrien, Timothy & Kirsten
p.s. give Papo an extra piece of Banana

Hi Joyce, thanks from us all for a great morning trekking through a great location. Your team are great and looked after us so well and made it so much fun. Having not ridden a horse for over 30 years I was a little worried. But within 5 mins of setting off was having happily trotting through the streets of Pop. I hope everyone who reads this books with this excellent group of people they are the best.
