Our 2 boys had pony rides almost every day and I had a personal lesson. They are equipped both with horses and staff to handle the novice to the experienced, the young to the old, and the casual/tourist to the serious. We can't say enough about Trina and her team.

Loved going along the beach on horseback. It is like a commercial with the clear ocean water cascading up to the horses hoofs

I love riding and do so pretty regularly, so when I found out there was a place I could swim in the ocean with a horse I had to try it out - and I was not disappointed. If you are a decent swimmer and / or have some riding experience I would definitely recommend this activity. I thought Trina... More

We saw the Equestrian Centre at Half Moon on a posting on Facebook and just had to check it out. The stable is extremely clean, the horses are in good shape and a lot of them have been rescued from the racetrack in Kingston. We chose the beach excursion as we wanted to swim in the ocean with the horses,... More

Nice facilities. Well taken care of horses & tack. The barn owner, Trina, is not warm and fuzzy. The guides, however, are WONDERFUL! We had Sheldon and he was amazing! I ride often and have my own horses, but I ride small, stocky horses in Western saddles. The barn horses are HUGE Thoroughbreds that are ridden in English saddles. My... More

My daughter is an accomplished rider. Her dream was to swim a horse in the ocean.And she fulfilled her dream. But do not ask to go out too deep unless you are an excellent swimmer or a thrill seeker. I was hit in the face by waves and found staying on bareback in deep water to be difficult even with... More

Absolutely amazing stables! Well maintained grounds, happy and healthy horses and enthusiastic staff. Robert was very nice, he picked us up and brought us back to our hotel. Trina and Sheldon were both very knowledgeable and I thoroughly enjoyed both polo lessons. Very highly recommended!

When I saw that you could swim with horses I had to go for it as I can't imagine there are many places in the world where you can do that. The staff were great and very reassuring as none of us were experienced riders. When we got to the beach we went bareback and wore life jackets and were... More

This beach horse ride is definitely not suitable for novice or nervous riders. You are given a very short introduction and walk around the field before setting off for the beach. Here you are expected to ride the horse bareback in the ocean where it is extremely difficult to stay on as the horse's coat becomes very slippery. The horse... More

Incredible memories with my two 13 year old granddaughters, one is a very experienced rider, beautiful sights, wonderful guides and riding in the water was the highlight of our vacation. Thank you to all, and a very thanks to your fantastic young photographer.
