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!

We visited Being with Horses first with my 4 and 6 year old, then the week after with my teenage daughters. What amazed us was the mutual respect and love that was palpable between the owners and the animals. Riding between the trees on the beach and in the sea was an experience never to be forgotten.

A totally Amazing experience all round. A big thankyou to Veronika and Lennon, you made this experience fantastic, even for the ones in our family who weren't riding. It was wonderful to see how happy and well cared for these horses are, and it is apparent that you really love what you do. The riding experience was Amazing too, just... More

Unfortunately, our tour was cancelled. Veronika worked hard to coordinate other dates with us, but we already had other plans. We are bummed to have missed this opportunity. Still working to get a refund- but seems that it will happen!

This was a beautiful experience. I was not prepared for what I saw and experienced. everything was relaxed, a beautiful horse picked me (yes, I did not pick him) and we slowly rode down through the village to the beach and then swam back. Veronica then asked me if I wanted to come back and volunteer and I did a... More

Never rode a horse before,and the horses choose you as their rider. A very nice way to get to know your horse, the best experience I have had on holiday. Thankyou very much :)

To Veronica, Lennon, Emma and Daniel...a huge THANK YOU! We just loved our time with you and it will stay with us all forever. The children (aged 6 and 8) said it was the best thing about the holiday and I have to agree. From being greeted by Veronica and given the low down on all the horses, to then... More

This was very special, and totally different from any other rides I have had in the past, the horses pick their riders for a start; how different is that? and swimming in the sea with a horse swimming under you is exciting, the sea and the whole area is paradise, so one of the experiences of a life time. Many... More

Really enjoyed meeting Lennon and Veronika. They are running a great business and I love what they do with the horses in buccoo. Not only did I enjoy going out for a ride but I really enjoyed seeing the horses daily going through town and on the beach. It is very clear that these people truly love what they do... More
