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!

YES, do this!! It is truly worth the money! The swim and ride trip was definitely the highlight of our trip to Tobago! The staff was very welcoming, and clearly love the horses. It was fun to learn about the life stories of the individual animals, and exciting to have the horse choose the rider instead of just being assigned.... More

Veronkia and lennon and the reat of the team have done an excellent job with the horses. They are so friendly and calm just like... More

Amazing morning! Veronika and the team run a lovely facility, she spent time when we arrived explaining the history of all the horses, how they came to be with them and their personalities, the horses then chose their riders and we set off on a trail through the village, along the beach, through the mangroves and then taking the horses...

From the beautiful Store Bay Beach in Crown Point we took a trip with Sugar Lips glass bottom boat to the nylon pool. I did this boat trip when I was 10 years old and now as an adult with my own children I find the reef and nylon pool to be a beautiful as it ever was but I... More

This was truly an amazing experience and the only reason I gave it four stars is because, even though my aunt I booked together were booked we were asked to do to separate days because of a group tour that was leaving the next day. So I went the first day and my aunt went the next day. My aunt... More

Veronica, Linen, the volunteers and horses made our trip. The eldest in the group was over 60 and had bilateral hip joint replacement last summer. the two middle aged women had not ridden horses in many years and the younger lady had just made her seventh birthday. We had the best time. Riding in the beach and allowing the horses... More

It was the best surprise Ever! One morning in May 2014, one week before I was due to return to Canada, my husband convinced me to join him in Buccoo (where he was currently working) for a surprise! Knowing my love of horses and wanting to give me a memorable experience he had bought a morning ride on horseback. I... More

When I first arrived at being with horses the atmosphere was amazing. All the staff where nice and the stables where gorgeous. My only worry was everyone in the group had very little experience and I have ridden for a long time We got introduced to the horses and the horse chose you. We walked down a lovely path and...

This experience was the highpoint of my vacation! Usually, as Trinidadians, my husband and I visit the regular Tobago attractions . However, we decided to do something different from the everyday Tobago experience and this was worth it :) The horses have lovely personalities and the owners, Veronica and Lennon are great host and instructors. I highly recommend this experience... More
