This was a one of a kind experience, mixing local culture with beautiful scenery and the peaceful nature of horses! I felt like I was reliving this experience from somewhere deep inside a past life...how kool is that!

I've seen movies where people go horseback riding on the beach in the water, and I've always wanted to do that. I finally was able to!! Not only that, but we got to ride through beautiful fairytale-looking forests. Such nice people and I learned a lot of interesting information about the island and some of the plants. A great experience... More

We LOVED our ride in Cabrits National Park with Valerie, Irvin, Hot, Nutmeg, and Jayden--two lovely people and three great horses. Dominica's unspoiled beauty, Cabrits' dizzying and spectacular views, romantic ruins from Colonial occupation--all are to be enjoyed! Dominica does not disappoint, and Rainforest Riding is the best of Dominica.

If you want to ride horses in Dominica this is the perfect place! There is no other place to ride horses on the beach. You're able to get in ocean which is an experience in itself! The guide was laid back and helpful and knowledgeable. I went with my boyfriend one day and then the next day went back myself.... More

Valerie and her ranch- hand Irving took us on a great tour of the immediate location and more importantly gave us insight into the the Dominican psyche. We really appreciated her candor and in depth knowledge of the island and the socio-economic forces that are involved. This is was a class in Dominica 101 and augmented a great ride as... More

This was my life long dream to ride a horse into the ocean. My husband somehow made it happen and Valerie couldn't have been more helpful. She had her driver Matthew pick us up across the street from the ship and drive us to her facility and back again. You can tell she absolutely loves her horses. She even was... More

Had a great time riding through the jungle and into the ocean. Besides the floating horse poop, it was definitely a great experience riding in the ocean. While in the water it was a little scary because it was a windy day so the waves were bigger than normal. A few of us fell off in the water, but if... More

We did an early morning beach ride and totally enjoyed the experience. Valerie and Ervin were terrific with us. We had not been on horses for over 30 years and Valerie teamed us up with horses well matched to us as beginners. Being able to ride the horses in the warm Caribbean was a great experience. This is a great... More

My husband and I took the Silversea cruise and one of our stops was Dominica. We opted to go horseback riding as one of our own excursions. It was awesome! Valerie, the owner of Rainforest riding, offered us the option of riding on the beach and go in the water with the horses or a rainforest ride. We did the... More
