This special 2 hour experience is a joyful one for both horses and riders, including first timers who have never spent time with horses. Excellent guidance and instruction makes it possible for all riders to be at ease. After introducing the horses to our guests (at which point each rider chooses his/her 'team partner' horse), we take everyone through Buccoo Village, past the goat race track and through the wetland mangroves to the beach FOR A LONG BEACH RIDE to the END of Buccoo BAY where we then swim with the horses along the shore . The cost of this personal guided tour is 500TTD (50 UK Pounds or 85 USD). Everybody needs to make their booking in advance due to limited space. ---->we go out 5 days a week ---> once a day. EITHER 9am - 11am or 3pm - 5pm Let us know when you like to go out - we will check availability ...!!! Thanks!!! HEART HUGS FROM the herd in BUCCOO Tobago Veronika & Lennon Have a JOYFUL day! « less

My first experience riding horses and it was great. The owners took really good care of the horses and you can tell how much they love what they do. I would definitely recommend this to everyone! It was so awesome because the horses came out one by one and chose who they wanted to be paired up with! Some people... More

I've ridden horses in several places, but never had as much care and dedication shown to the animals themselves as was evident here. Veronika and Lennon and Daniel really know - and love - what they are doing and that comes through every moment that you're there. Even though my wife and daughter are not as keen on riding as...

Unfortunately I have to give the only poor review. I confirmed for two members of my family to ride 1.5mths in advance and provided all the particulars that were needed and received a confirmation. Upon arrival the day they were confirmed to ride, we arrived half hour early and was met with a closed sign on the gate so we... More

This was our second time with the herd for me and my son but this time we took my uncle and my youngest son who is 6. We had a amazing time, Veronika and Lennon know their stuff when it comes to looking after the herd, we had Daniel taking amazing photos while we rode and swam with the horses.... More

This was a fabulous experience. The horses treated with love and kindness. I am not a horse woman and was very nervous, however I was made to feel comfortable by Veronique and her helper (a lovely, lovely lady, sorry I have forgotten her name). First the horses choose who they want to ride them. Then a ride down to the... More

If you are an acomplished horse rider or a beginner this is a must. The horses are recue horses and obviouly rehabilitated with love and compassion, some of the most gentle horses I have ever had the pleasure to encounter. There are no harsh metal bits in use and no stirrups. An amazing ride along the beautiful Bucco beach then... More

This was my first time on a horse and it was just extraordinary. I feel that this was the best way to be introduced to these wonderful creatures. Both the owners and staff do a fantastic job at introducing you to horses and teaching you to be with them. I am truly blessed and honored to participate.

If you visit Tobago, 'being with horses' is one not to be missed. The experience of riding horseback on the beach and in the sea is amazing. Don't be put off if you've never ridden before the horses are so gentle and the instructor are excellent at what they do. This experience is unique and you will not be disappointed.

I spent a wonderful morning at the Bucco Bay. At first the unique ride through the Mongroves along the beach and then the fantastic ride through the water! Thanks to Lennon and Veronika for this great experience. And last but not least: Thanks Zimbo for the nice ride! ;-)
