One of the most unique ways to experience Grand Cayman! Trek along the edge of the Caribbean Sea atop one of our magnificent beauties! Enjoy a lazy walk as the surf rolls in and out at the feet of your horse. For the more adventurous, feel the wind in your hair as you canter along the white sand beach. 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!

An unforgettable experience. Riding horses bareback in the Caribbean Sea. That says it all. The guides were very courteous and watched over everyone very closely. Our 10 year old children did it and had no problems.

It was a very nice experience. For those staying on the Island, I recommend to do it on Monday to avoid the cruise crowds.

Simple online reservations with immediate reply. Answered all questions in a timely manner. A once in a lifetime experience. We booked the Caribbean Sea Swim, so glad we booked this ride. There were only 5 of us on the ride with Paul, Michael and Jordan as our guides. Horses were gentle and guides were wonderful. The horses were so beautiful... More

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.

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
