We happened to be on the island when my daughter turned 14 and she picked this excursion for her birthday present. They offer shuttle service which is good because the ride takes place on a more remote part of the island and might be hard to get to without a car. Being on a remote part of the island makes...

Our family just returned from a trip to Grand Cayman Island. The highlight was our ride with Spirit of the West--the beach was beautiful, the water was so colorful and amazing and our guide Jordan was fantastic! He was friendly, polite and informative. He taught us a lot about his wonderful island home. It was our family's first time riding... More

Had a great time horseback riding in the ocean. Best to go in the morning before it gets too hot. Great experience!

Wonderful fun!!! When we saw the horseback swim on trip advisor, we immediately decided to plan this adventure during our Grand Cayman stay. It had been a LONG time since either of us had been riding, but the guides were terrific! The horses are so well trained they knew what to do and where to go, so we really had... More

After reviewing multiple horse riding companies, I decided on Spirit of the West. I booked a ride for my 7yo daughter, myself and my husband. Due to having an infant, they accommodated our ride allowing my husband and I to switch halfway to both be able to enjoy the experience with our daughter. Jordan was a very experienced, friendly and... More

When my daughter and I found Spirit Of The West and saw that we could ride horses on the beach AND swim in the water with them we knew we had to make reservations immediately since we did not want to miss what sounded like something that would make memories to last a lifetime for the whole family. Unfortunately the... More

This should be right up there with Stingray City as a must do when on the island. Our 16 year old daughter talked us into this and none of us have any horse riding experience at all. We are so grateful she did as this was highlight of our 6 day trip. First they make it easy to set up... More

We have 2 teenagers that love to ride, and we thought this would be a dream come true for them. Even with our high expectations, we could not have imagined how perfect and amazing this would be. I booked online, and perhaps I made a mistake, and at first it looked like they would not get the ocean swim with... More

I'd say my 30th was probably the best birthday yet! After an amazing dive in East End my husband and I drove to West Bay for what I thought was going to be a nice birthday lunch but, to my surprise, I was instead treated to an amazing horseback ride on the beach. We're local Caymanians and we ran about... More
