    Very interesting experience. It was my first time and didn’t know it could be tiring but it was great. Had fun with our driver/guide Sandre. Would go back again.

    This was an awesome experience! It was a fairly quick excursion which was nice! Being on the horse while it was swimming was super cool!! The staff was amazing the entire time and overall it was a great experience!

    We chose the mountain ride, which was a great choice. The sweeping vistas were incredible. We rode by many herds of gentle cows and even startled some baby pigs; their mother was nonplussed.

    We were matched with very well trained and well kept horses. I rode Risenoria. She was magnificent. She had an excellent working walk and enjoyed being in the lead of our group of 5, including Gabi. We had several opportunities to canter/gallop and she was incredibly fast and surefooted. I always felt completely safe and in control.

    My husband, who is a beginner rider (has only done some boring nose to tail trail rides), was able to canter as well. He said that this was the most fun he's ever had on a horse.

    My 2 daughters were also able to canter. My youngest has the most horse experience (does lessons) and she loved cantering/galloping in the open countryside.

    We were able to do a little river swim with Risenoria and some of the other horses. It was really amazing to sit bareback on her, while she swam for a bit.

    This was the highlight of my Punta Cana trip. Book with Gabi. She takes such good care of the horses and she also has an animal rescue, where she matches up rescue dogs with loving owners both within and outside of the Dominican Republic.

    We had a great time with Rene and his tour staff! We booked this through our hotel concierge, and the tour was nice enough to help us rebook a different day when one member of our party didn’t feel well.

    On arrival to the tour, we were presented with lockers and clean bathrooms to use before going out. We had a brief safety discussion and then walked 3 minutes to where the horses met us. We rode about 1 hour to the beach where we then did the swim with the horses. What a fun experience! The horses are well taken care of. We went to the stable where they are kept and got to see how well they’re treated and cared for.

    Rene and his staff were great! Would definitely recommend.

    This excursion exceeded our expectations. If you want to ride on the beach and customize your experience, this is the rude for you! Can be more than the follow the leader nose to tail pony ride based on experience.

    Staying at a near by house with a large group of friends, most of whom are accomplished equestrians, we decided we had to ride on the beach while in PC. On first arrival, the grounds were well maintained, beautiful landscaped, and evident this center does more with horses than just trail rides (jump courses, round lunging pens, dressage). It is also situated near ecological attractions within walking distance (honey, animals, trails) which we were free to explore after the ride.

    Dont let your first impression of the trail horses fool you! Ours was lack luster-petite ponies and bike helmets, worn western trail tack=underwhelmed. Many of us own and ride regularly and were thinking this would be the equivalent of a fair ride or summer camp trip. These petite ponies are stout steeds! What turned this adventure into an experience of a life time was the ability to ride, and race ponies up and down the deserted, pristine beaches and ride through the water. Our guides adjusted our trip to our experience level which was the game changer. The first part of the trail was through a small rocky, covered path that led to the abandoned Oscar De La Renta resort, which is beautiful and disarming at the same time. At times you are on a trail, roadside, and the beach.

    While riding through the beaches and into the ocean seems to be a regular part of this excursion, I would assume racing on the beach to be skill specific, as it should be. Discuss possibilities with your guide-they aim to please! We hadn't planned on this experience is a part of our trip, so many did not have long pants or even close toed shoes and that was not a problem.

    If your looking for a custom ride on the beach with the ability to tailor your experience to ability, this is it! For many if us, this WAS the highlight of our trip, and thats saying something!

    Price-around $50 USD Time-2hrsish. We booked through an agency that came to our house and transportation was provided through this service.

    You don't need to know how to ride a horse to enjoy this. The tour guides will take pictures with your cameras for you. Keep your legs covered as much as you can because sometimes the horses ride closely together and you may scrape your knees. Also, be generous with the bug repellant and sunblock. This is a great way to tour the area. There is a gift shop at the end of the tour (cash only).

    We did all the activities and we loved it. My favorite activity was the buggy’s, it will be an unforgettable memory. And the zip line was so fast and had such great views.

    We were gifted this excursion for Christmas from my parents, and it was amazing! Monkey King and Sherry (not sure on spelling) were fantastic guides - not over the top or obnoxious…just chill and laid back! We started the day at Macao Beach where we got some yummy coconut water and had some pictures taken. We chose not to swim because we didn’t want to be wet for the remainder of the tour. After that, we drove through a lot of the DR and got to see some interesting sites. We got to go Ziplining and horseback riding - both were great! Not the greatest Zipline we’ve ever been on, but it was still fun. The horses are incredibly docile. We then went to a local Dominican house owned by a man named Christian. We ate a delicious lunch and got to sample some fruits. Christian showed us how he makes coffee and chocolate, and we got to sample some. I’m pretty sure the highlight for my daughters was snuggling the puppies!! After the farm, we went to the cigar rolling place. We were immediately given the choice of a cigar to start smoking - I loved the honey one! Then they showed us how to roll our own - I rolled a chocolate one. We got to try some yummy MamaJuana and other rum drinks before buying some souvenirs.

    All in all, it was a fantastic tour, and I would highly recommend it to anyone!!

    Jonathan and group were top notch. Not sure why everyone pays double to see monkeys and do other adventures. This tour was amazing for our whole family and they personalized every aspect of it. Very affordable and got to see tons of different animals, adventures, and learned a lot about the culture.
