Rudy will charm your pants off in about 5 different languages. Rudy, his wife, and the other guides are truly lovely people. I went on the Las Galeras/La Playita daytrip ride, arranged last minute like everything I do, and tagged along with a couple who had never been on a horse and a lady who had been riding since age 13. No experience required, but if you've got it, Rudy won't hold you back! I do NOT have it, so I was very grateful for the brief riding intro, the well-mannered horses, and the little tips here and there along the ride. Rudy really personalizes the experience, switching from one language to the next, never letting anyone feel left out. It was a surreal experience, the sound of the hooves and the feel of the horse, riding through the quaint village of Las Galeras, admiring the stunning views, and splashing through the shallow waves of La Playita beach. There is a stop at La Playita to swim in the ocean if you want, but I had forgotten my swimsuit and so instead had a mini-salsa lesson by the sea. In addition to Rudy the cowboy, there was also once Rudy the professional dancer. True story!
As a little aside, I was very pleased to see how well taken care of Rudy's horses were :).
