During my stay at Half Moon I knew I just had to go on the beach ride where you get to swim with the horses. It's such an amazing experience...after a ride to thebeach in the saddle, you then ride your horse bareback into the water which is pretty cool in itself until...they start swimming and you just lie down...

After reading many reviews on TripAdvisor, I decided to book the beach ride at Half Moon. I must say that Trina made scheduling an appointment very easy. I arrived to see many horses on the grounds. All horses looking very healthy and strong. My guide was Dwayne. I recommend asking for Dwayne as he made my experience perfect. We started... More

The kids program is great. My daughter enjoyed both riding the pony and the petting zoo. The trainer/guide was excellent.

although we did -- instruction is good but how much can you get out of a couple of lessons with someone that doesn't know you or how you ride? Do go for swimming with horses!!!! Don't miss it! You don't need to know how to ride (or even like horses for that matter) It's an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Can't wait... More

I was so impressed with the equestrian center at the Half Moon Bay. I grew up with horses, so usually stray away from these types of activities. However, the horses were well-cared for and the water experience was something unlike I ever imagined! The guides were fantastic and you could tell they really cared about the animals. This was an...

Although the resort I stayed at in Montego Bay send their guests to another riding facility (probably because this facility is located on a competing resort in the area), as... More

All four of us rode down to the beach with the guys who work at the equestrian centre. You then dismount, take the saddles off the horses, get into your swim wear and then get back on and ride into the sea. Once the horses start to swim you float on their backs and then slide off and they pull... More

The Beach ride, where you get to swim with the horses in the ocean, was among our trip highlights. The guides are great, and our son really enjoyed the dogs and cats who hang out at the stables.

My daughter had a great experience riding the horses on the grounds of the Equestrian Centre, the resort, the beach on 10 August. The most exhilarating part of the experience was swimming with the horse. It went deep enough that the horse was able to swim. The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. I was able to walk behind the... More
