Type: Horseback Riding Stables, Outdoor Activities
Fee: Yes
Owner description: 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!

I recently went here with my girlfriend and had a great time. The owners were incredibly friendly, and really took their time with the riders and explained their philosophy and how they work with their horses. It's quite unique from most places i've ever experienced. The riding itself is barefoot, and saddless. There is a small mat and a bridle... More

Me and my boyfriend went to the "swim&trail" without almost any experience of horsebackriding. The two hours we spent with the horses and the very friendly staff was one of the most authentic and unique thing we've ever been apart of. It was totally worth the money! Thank you Veronika, Lennon, Sophia and ofc the horses for making this possible.... More

Great trip to Tobago, highlight was our afternoon being with horses, we were complete novices having never been on horses before, the team at Being With Horses put us at our ease, at the same time showing immense passion for their mission, which goes further than a tourist attraction. We rarely write reviews, however, this does deserve top rating.

My daughter planned this experience as a christmas surprise for me when she knew we were travelling to Tobago. We participated in the experience together and it has created a memory for life. I have always wanted to horse ride in the sea, but this is so so much more because of the ethos created by Lenon and Veronika. The... More

I did the "Swim and Trail" tour with my family and boyfriend. None of us had much experience with horses, yet we all had an excellent time! The highlight of the tour is when you get to swim with the horses in the ocean. I did not expect the horses to gallop as quickly through the water as they did,... More

This is a must do. Veronika gave a great introduction to the story of how she came to work with her horses. Then we were introduced to the horses and went on a ride through Buccoo, through a forest, along the beach, then INTO the ocean! It was thrilling riding with so many horses, many without riders. I'm a bit... More

We decided to try this based on the reviews here on this website. I called on December 21 but was told that they were fully booked until January. I left my name on their waiting list and on December 23 got an email that there was a cancellation. Our party of five was able to do this experience on Christmas... More

We went to this horse riding stables after my daughter had been a guest of friends Poppy and Archie the year before. The reception we received from the lady presumably the owner was truly appalling she clearly doesn't need business and as far as we are concerned wants to alienate potential new business as we are frequent visitors to Tobago...

Dear Ian, We are truly SORRY, we could not give you the attention you expected to meet. We are very sorry the reception was closed by your arrival. We had a private session with differently abled ones at the time of your visit. It is a huge responsibility, and at that moment of your approach, our focus needed to be... More

We were on a tour and stooped at the location where horse swim across a small channel on the week ends. This location was just a few yards from the "goat race track" where real live goats are raced each week plus there is betting on the winners. We followed the path of the horse as they enter (with their... More

If visiting Tobago, Being With Horses is a MUST experience. Great time for beginners or experienced riders. The no saddle, no bit makes riding with the horse a more intimate experience. I've never been on a horse in the water and let me tell you it was awesome!! The horses love the swim. Its a rejuvenating day for body, mind... More
