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 these ones were great & they were healthy, too. Rudy is very concerned with your safety, so you have little to fear. We rode over beaches, through towns, & up a mountain to Monte Azul, where we had drinks. The views were incredible. After all of this, I got to have a massage with Rudy's other half, Caroline. This was the icing on the cake. An absolutely, wonderful day!

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 end of the excursion, she was happy with her decision to give riding a try, and a month later she's been asking me when we'll return! What a great way to see Las Galeras...we will definitely be revisiting Rudy's Rancho (and Casa Colibris for a post-horseback-ride massage).
