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! « less

We had a beautiful ride on the north beaches of the island, which seems very untouched. You then get to ride bareback into the ocean with the beautiful horses, such a neat experience. Thank you

She even took our camera and got some incredible shots to solidify our... More

Paul was our guide and couldn't be more professional. My wife and had such a nice morning on the beach and ocean swim. I would recommend wearing pants if you plan going any faster than a walk.

This was a wonderful start to our mother-daughter vacation. From friendly Graden with the hotel pick up to Michael's energetic guidance on the horses. Made me feel like a Caribbean Cowgirl! Thank you for a marvelous experience. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Michael and Jordan were our guides and made us feel very welcomed. We were all paired off with our horses and off we went. We took the beach... More
