Try something completely out of the ordinary with the swim ride - hold on tight as your horse is steered into the cool and refreshing waters of the Caribbean for a wonderful swim.The true romantics can see the softer side of Cayman with the moonlit ride during the full moon. Guided only by the natural instincts of your horse, enjoy the peaceful nirvana of paradise where the modern world is far and away!Whatever your choice, Spirit of the West delivers premium service with true Caymanian hospitality. Each ride is an experience of a lifetime and every rider feels like they have done something they will never forget! « less

I don't mind crowds on vacations it comes with the territory.If you want a private session on the beach with just you,a guide,and a horse then Spirit of the West is the way to go! It's always chaos at the port so the drive to the beach offered it's own colors of delight. Then I exited the vehicle and walked... More

I definitely recommend. This was our third visit to the island and we finally made it horseback riding. Our guide with Spirit of the West was very nice and was always ready to answer questions.

I'm an experienced rider, my husband - not-so-much. Regardless, we both had a great time which is rare when you have different experience levels. Due to some transportation issues, our ride got started later than planned, but Paul made up for it by letting me "stretch the legs" of my horse on the beach. There was a bit of a... More

Awesome evening horseback riding with our family. Paul was awesome with our kids (7&10) and their first ride. Can't wait to go back next year. Highly recommend Spirit of the West for all ages and experience levels.

We selected this excursion specifically because we did not want to be in a large group. We prefer personal interaction. Boy were we surprised. The riding was great but the guide all but ignored us and in fact appeared to be texting while she was leading us down the beach.

I was anticipating this excursion the entire trip, but I was worried that I would be disappointed. (Despite being an experienced rider, most places don't allow anything but a slow walk behind everyone else). Not only was was I not disappointed, but everything exceeded my expectations in the best way possible.The staff was super friendly and accommodating and allowed me... More

Great time swimming with the horses. My fiance we a little scared but it quickly became her favorite thing we did in the island. Her eyes light up when we tell people about it. Our guide was the best she took wonderful pictures for us I cannot remember her name but she is Honduran

I cannot say enough good things about Spirit of the West and Paul, the owner. My kids had a fantastic time! Thanks to Paul. We got lost trying to find where we were actually going to ride horses- and saw him loading his up. He was so nice and offered to help us with directions. Needless to say, we left... More
