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.

My tour guides were Gradden and Michael, who were both very informative and nice. They lead the trail and the group into the ocean with ease. The horses were so sweet tempered and listened to directions very well. I had Sinbad and my boyfriend had Lady. Sinbad is the oldest of the bunch and the gentlest. Going into the ocean... More

My wife and I booked a dusk ride for us and our 5 and 4 year olds. We met Paul at Ristaurante Pallagallo. Paul was very friendly and made sure we were all comfortable. During the ride, Paul guided my 5 year old daughter's horse, while my wife rode with my 4 year old son. The ride was over an... More

Booked the Beach and Swim with the horses. We were picked up and dropped off back at our condo on Seven Mile Beach. The pick up was about 20 minutes late, but when I booked, I was given a heads up that this could possibly happen because cruise shippers were being picked up first, and depending on traffic and the...

This was an incredible experience I'd say a once in a lifetime. Paul picked us up @ the Marriott and he couldn't have been nicer . It's about a 20 minute drive to the other side of the island .Once we got there we were greeted by his friendly staff and the beautiful horses , they asked many questions to... More

Do the Sea ride. It is a unique experience. The ride is fun, the only thing better would be more interaction with the guides about the island and horses..

This beach ride/swim was by far one of the most enjoyable moments of my life! We arrived in Grand Cayman with the Carnival Cruiseline and decided to search on our own for a "horseback riding excursion" beforehand that was not through the cruiseline. We came across Spirit of the West online and decided to reserve a beach ride based on... More

This was incredible! Beautiful horses, very well trained and looked after. You can tell, that they get a lot of love from the owner. People who work here are very kind and will go out of their way to help you, in any way they can. I didn't want it to end. Galloping bareback on the beach was my dream...... More

SOW guides met us at the time and place we agreed on, a restaurant on the northernmost tip of the island bordering on the park. The ride was fantastic! We rode along the beach with a guide and one other couple. The sea was gorgeous, and being in a park meant no developments, just vegetation, sand, and water. Our guide,... More

It was a nice ride and we enjoyed it. Our guide, Michael, was enjoyable. The horses were healthy and well-behaved...and good swimmers.

My Husband and I did an anniversary trip. We had both ridden horses many times, but never in the ocean, so this sounded like a bucket list to-do for sure. Since we were on vacation, I expected a relaxing ride, however, mentioning I had horse riding experience might have landed me with a horse (Angel) which was either temperamental or... More
