When I think horseback riding I always thought of tourists strolling along beaches just enjoying the scenery. With that mindset I didn't think that I would find it appealing. A few friends convinced me to tag along and I'm happy I did.
Full speed galloping, running through streams and rivers as well as a nice relaxing swim at the end. Can't beat that. Top it all of with some typical Dominican Food to replenish all the energy used and you have magic.
If in the DR I definitely recommend taking one of these tours. Make sure to ask for a stronger horse, if you're an experienced rider, so you can take the experience of the tour to the next level.
