      Special comments

      Before you saddle up, you will watch a short video on the history of horses and a safety video.

      A horseback tour in Cap Cana is an opportunity to see rugged parts of the Dominican that many don't get to see- It's a foray into more than a million acres of lush Caribbean forest, where majestic cliffs rise high above the flora and fauna. Riding tall in the saddle, you might spot rare butterflies, iguanas, or blue herons. The scope of nature is cinematic- Riders before you have compared their horseback adventures in Cap Cana to an Indiana Jones movie. 

      Coincidentally, your horseback tour guides have a movie star's charm. They won't mind if you think of them as comedic cowboys with a textbook knowledge of the terrain. They're there to help you ride comfortably and to your ability level. The gravel trails beat a reasonably smooth path around caverns and caves festooned with Caribbean flora.

      Your horse may stop for a drink at the winding river, an area where coffee and cocoa beans are a delicious part of the local economy and a few small shops dot the route. Pick up a bottle of Mama Juana, an interesting local concoction made of rum, red wine, and honey, seasoned by tree bark and herbs and said to have mysterious rejuvenating powers. It has a mild kick to it, which is the only kind you want around horses.

       Mama Juana didn't always have a kick

      The specific herbs that make up Mama Juana were originally prepared as an herbal tea by the native Taino Indians- according to legend, Christopher Columbus liked it. In the 1950s, Mama Juana was reinvented and branded as herbal medicine, and that's when alcohol was added to the recipe.
