Horseback Riding - a Glance to Dom Rep Country Side

Duration: Half Day

Horseback Riding - A glance to Dom Rep country side

One of the best ways to view the spectacular Caribbean vistas during your holiday in the Dominican Republic is to go horseback riding. If you are staying on the North Coast of the island of Hispaniola, the beautiful area of Cabarete is a great place to start your journey. Tranquil lagoons, pristine beaches, lush tropical forests and dramatic mountain ranges are just some of the tour highlights. This is an incredible adventure for both adults and children to embark on.

Whether you are an expert rider or a beginner taking your first lesson, equestrians will love the horse riding trails in and around the small beach town of Cabarete. Some all-inclusive resorts will even offer a free horse-riding trip for guests. There are several ranches and excursions to choose from in the area, and local experienced guides will reveal the best places to go.

Even the kids can join in as the riding schools have tame horses specifically for children. The whole family can learn about the history, beauty and culture of the Dominican Republic and the specific areas you ride through as you travel off the beaten track into the rural heart of the island. Walk and gallop across beautiful white sandy beaches, enjoying stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean and northern coastline.

Alternatively, you can choose trails that will lead you through lush tropical hills and forests surrounded by mountains. The Dominican Republic’s topography comprises a diverse range of highland and lowland areas, which is just one reason why the country’s landscapes are so varied and beautiful. Ride across rivers and through small villages, where you will be greeted by the warm Dominican people.

Don’t forget to bring your bathing suit because you may get the chance to go swimming on the way. Learn about the local culture and the native flora and fauna from your friendly expert guide as you travel from place to place. When it’s time for a break, you can spend time relaxing and soaking up your surroundings as you enjoy a picnic in some of the beautiful locations in the country.

Whether you are looking for a romantic evening ride across the beach as the sun goes down, or an adventure for the whole family to enjoy, horse riding is a fantastic way to get away from the busy holiday resorts and cities to experience the Dominican wilderness at its best. The breathtaking scenery, culture and excitement of this fun-filled adventure will stay with you for a lifetime.
