Description: Being-with-horses & Healing with HORSES Let us give you some INFO...
Being-with-horses & Healing with HORSES Let us give you some INFO: We currently offer our trail-swim combination. 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 . 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!

This is quite an experience! The place is German+Tobagonian owned. Both husband and wife love their family (horses). I had a great time and it was worth the time/money. A few cons though: this might be because of my impatience, but getting started dragged on because of the other customers. They were slow to move.

We were a group of well travelled people, both riders/non-riders and were expecting a standard beach outing. How wrong we were. This was no ordinary ride - it was a unique experience - with some of the horses running free alongside those ridden. You have a pad not a saddle and a halter not a bridle. The horses are calm...

This was a present for my gf as she loves horses. Even though the whole horse riding in the sea experience is a little shorter than what I expected, it was amazing whilst we were there. There is horse riding in the woods and then there is horse riding in a Caribbean sea along a beautiful beach.

This has been a dream of mine from the first moment I heard about Being With Horses and the much-anticipated experience surpassed all my expectations! Veronika, Lennon and all of their kind helpers made us feel totally safe and comfortable. Their bond with their herd of horses and their knowledge of each horse allowed us to feel very relaxed just... More

This was just simply amazing. Unbelievable and every other superlative you can think of. I cannot think of any normal riding school where a complete beginner rider will ride through lovely mangrove trees and then onto a deserted tropical white sand beach. If that was not enough riding in deeper water where the horses are almost swimming was just an... More

Amazing horses trained in a special way with kindness and they are part of a family, with each other and the humans in their lives. I rode an ex racehorse, quite tall. We swam in the sea the horse going up as he swam in the swell of the choppy sea while I was up to my chest in the... More

Words can do no justice to this experience. Strolling with the lovely horses on land and then swimming with them in the sea was just an unforgettable experience. What made a 100% perfect experience even more perfect was the way in which the owners Lennon and Veronika take care of the horses - most of whom had been rescued and... More

This was such a wonderful experience. We meet the horses and got a little history behind each....some are rescue horses that were rehabilitated here. Their program with the kids is wonderful...so this part was the education. Then there is the fun part, riding after the horse chooses you, where you ride down to the beach and along the beach for...

I have ridden horses for over 15 years in Germany and at other vacation places it this one is an experience you cannot miss! It's amazing how you connect with the horses, or better, how they connect with you. They take beautiful pictures for you and they are just a life experience you need to have! Beautiful ride in the...
