Tour description provided by Viator

Enjoy horseback riding along a beach in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. Awaken your spirit riding on horseback along a palm tree lined unspoiled beach with soft sand and crystal clear water, away from the resorts and the busy city. The ride is suitable for beginners and experienced riders and ideal for families and smaller children who can ride together with a guide.
You tour will start with pickup from your hotel by safari truck. After a short drive you will arrive at the beach where the horses are waiting already saddled up. The horses are well-cared for and well-fed but most of all the staff truly loves each one of them. Your friendly guide will tell you your horses name and give you instructions on how to ride and get familiar with your horse - after all each horse has its own personality. Make sure to pat your horse often and speak to him (or her) in a friendly tone. Better still bring your horse some bananas which they love!You will then be off for a 1.5 hour ride along a truly unspoiled beach. The wind chases the clouds, the waves are softly crashing on the shore and the feeling of your kind and noble horse carrying you is nothing but magical. During the ride you can experience canter and trot and the more experienced can try their hand at a gallop along the beach. The best moment of the tour however, will be when you get a chance to enter in the water with one of the selected horses (not all of them like to get wet) and enjoy a dip in the ocean together with your horse for a truly unforgettable experience.
