Equestrian

Some of the most comprehensive stables in the Caribbean

Saddle Up

Casa de Campo Resort and Villas’ extensive equestrian center is among the best in the Caribbean. And if you’ve never saddled-up before, our expert staff is on hand for lessons in English or Western-style riding and jumping, and even grooming techniques and rodeo stunts.

Private guides are available for individual or group trail rides on two of our cattle ranches. Enjoy a leisurely ride through herds of water buffalo, lakes teeming with ducks and local fauna, sugar cane fields, and our on-site horse-breeding operation. The Equestrian and Polo are directed by Fernando Arata, originally from Argentina, a professional polo player with ample experience in the field.

Please note unlimited horse riding is included with the Casa de Campo Vacation Experience.

Polo at Casa de Campo

Experience the thrill and the majesty of polo right here at Casa de Campo. Our polo facilities—which include three playing fields and one practice field—are among the best in the Caribbean, and we’re proud to have the largest string of polo ponies under a single brand in the world.

Beginners and experts alike can take advantage of equipment, group instruction, and personalized training. Guests can also hire ponies for stick and ball tournaments, a fantastic and entertaining activity for families. Regular polo matches are played from early November to the end of April for those simply content to cheer from the sidelines.

Polo League

As of 2016, the Polo Challenge Dominican Republic will catapult the country into the elite world of polo. With top players like Adolfo Cambiaso, Juan Martin Nero, and David Sterling—among others—playing in the league, it’s only a matter of time before the Dominican Republic is one of the premier polo destinations in the world.
