    WHEN TO GO ON HORSEBACK TO THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC:

    The Dominican Republic has a tropical climate with two distinct seasons: the rainy season from May to October and the dry season from December to April. It is warm there all year round with maximum temperatures between 30 ° C and 32 ° C.
    - The rainy season: between May and October, it is characterized by heavy rains, but often of short duration and in the late afternoon. The sun remains present during the day. It is during this season that temperatures are highest, between 23 ° C and 32 ° C. The constant heat and humidity are sometimes hard to bear.
    - The dry season: from December to April, is the most pleasant season to consider an equestrian holiday, because the atmosphere is much drier, with less rains. The air is more breathable, the temperatures are a little cooler, between 20 ° C and 30 ° C.
    In the mountainous part of the country, the risk of rain remains present throughout the year, the two seasons are less marked. This is also the case in the northeastern part of the country: precipitation is more frequent there during the dry season than in the southern part of the island, where rains are almost non-existent.
