We took the beach tour and it was amazing. I recommend going for the water tour where the horses actually go into the water and swim...very peaceful and tranquil.

Recently experienced the Caribbean Sea Swim on the morning of Monday 6/29 with my son and daughter. The booking process was a breeze and all my questions were answered prior to arrival. The horses were beautiful and looked to be in great physical shape. The beach horseback ride was smooth and relaxing (and I have only ridden a horse twice... More

My wife and daughter did the private beach ride 4 years ago on our last visit to Cayman with Spirit of the West and loved it and chose... More

We had a great time on our beach ride with our instructor Paul. Paul catered to our needs and was very informative. The ride was a great experience, especially the in the water portion of the ride. Going bareback in the water was tons of fun, but be prepared to be a little sore the next day. ;-) I would... More

From Donavan picking us up, to Michael's expertise, my daughter and I had a very memorable experience. I have to say that riding a horse in the water was a bit scary... But, Michael explained how and the horse did the rest! A truly unique experience.... Many thanks for your kindness and care!

My husband booked this for us as a separate excursion from what the cruise ship offered. It was everything you can imagine and more. We opted for the private ride and swim. Michael was amazing! Took us for a ride we will never forget all while talking to us about the island and all it has to offer. Since we... More

The staff was friendly and safe, the horses were in good shape, they were well behaved. The water we swam in was beautiful and the horses did not hesitate.

My girls like to do horse activities every chance they get and Spirit of the West came highly recommended. It did not disappoint and my family was thrilled. The horses and guides are very nice and they swim in the ocean like they were born to it. The side of the island where you go is not developed which is... More

We did an afternoon ride with our group of 5 and it was so much fun!! Our guides Michael and Taleshia were fantastic. I had not been on a horse in many years, but they were very patient with all of us. Taking the horses out in the water to swim (bareback) was a little intimidating, but a wonderful experience!...
