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 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...

We were met with very welcoming staff. The staff made me feel very comfortable with my 1st time experience. I knew the horses were respected and valued, and felt honoured Zimba chose me for the ride. (The horse choose the rider...isn't that cool) With the basic instructions, most importantly scratching Zimba's neck, I felt like a pro meandering through Buccoo's... More

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.
