I'm a New Yorker born and raised. Moved to the Dominican Republic in 2007 with the birth of my daughter. I have always had a passion for horses and have been raising them for over 11 years. I have 12 Beautiful Horses 4 of which are rescues. They are all docile and people friendly! Our Ranch is located in the back country of Santiago. It's a small ranch which is one of the last farms milking cows. In our tour you'll have the opportunity to milk a cow! On

What's included

Equipment
Horse and Saddle We have beautiful horses for all riders, well maintained professional riding saddles, and safety helmets!

Where you'll be

We will be in the poor milking farm thats a dying breed. Before they would sell the milk to the area but the new generation drinks powdered milk or container milk. Since the Big Milk Companies have their own cows they have no market! My great grandfather owned all of the land we will visit at one point and now it is owned by family, so we will be given special access to private lands where you'll be able to disconnect and refresh your mind.
