We are a couple and 3 children (12, 10 and 9) and we had a lovely ride from the ranch into the countryside and then down to the beach where we rode in the surf and along the sand. Rudy is very professional but friendly and the children loved the whole experience.

My husband & I had the pleasure of doing a private 4 hour horseback ride with Rudy. I can honesty say that I have never ridden such a well trained horse, other than my own. Usually when you go on riding tours, the horses are not the best behaved due to tourists hauling on them all of the time, but... More

My wife and I each had a wonderful massage from Caroline, we highly recommend it during your stay in Las Galeras! Both Rudy and Caroline are super friendly and are great people to get in touch with about almost any activity you want to pursue while in the D.R.

I have ridden with Rudy before and always have an amazing time, but I was especially impressed this time with how he and the other guide handled my friend who was a first-time rider. She was nervous about riding a horse, but I had convinced her to join me for a relaxing horseback ride through beautiful Las Galeras. By the... More

Professional, organized, passionate about his horses and his business . Rudy provides the best riding we have had in all our travels. Whether you are a novice or an experienced horseperson, he has the right horse and right trail for you. He is actually the main reason we return to the Grand Paradise complex!!

Arranged with Rudy via email - he was prompt to reply, and very helpful organising travel arrangements too. We spent the morning riding, lunch at Las Playitas beach and then galloped home along...

Rudy was so awesome...the beaches were beautiful. The horses were great listeners and took amazing care of us. 4 of us went - I am the most experienced rider and some of my friends hadn't been on a horse in years but they did great and we had the best time!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
