This was one of our favorite adventures on the island. It was a nice ride to the beach. Once there, our guide, Dennis, removed the saddles from the horses. We mounted the horses bareback, and he guided us into the Atlantic. We rode the horses while others kite surfed around us. Fun!

We booked a 2 hour beach ride and had a good time. Our guide Dennis was super friendly and had our three year old ride with him. She felt so safe she fell asleep on the way back to the stable! The horses were a little skinny, but all of the animals on the island are! We enjoyed seeing more... More

We were picked up a Trims van and the driver was very friendly. When we arrived, we did notice that the horses we saw in the field were very skinny and felt a bit apprehensive about getting on such small horses but the guide suited the horses to our weight I guess. When we first got there, our bags were... More

I was surprised at how thin Mr. Trim's horses were. However, they were willing to be ridden and upon our return, were immediately cleaned off and turned out into a pack pasture. These horses work for a living, so are not typical over-fed American pets. Our guide said the horses are only ridden 2x per week during the dry season.... More

We had a fabulous ride with our guide, Coco. Took the two hour ride down to the ocean, beautiful views, and an all around great experience. We were the only two on the tour, and Coco could not have been nicer! Loved!

Great guides. Very helpful. We swam in the water with the horses at the beach. The horses were calm and well trained

This review isn't intended to hurt Trim's specifically, it's probably representative of all riding places in the Caribbean, particularly if you're a horse person. Pros: - They have riding helmets and every guest must wear them. - Our guide was nice. - The horses were okay, maybe could have used a bit more weight but they were adequately cared for.... More

Me and my fiancé booked this trip as she is a horse lover with 3 of her own and has been trying to get me on one for years, so I thought this would be as good of a place as any to try it. We booked a 2 hour ride for 4pm. We arrived to a very authentic st... More

Booked this through Sandals. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable who spend their lives around the horses. You go down a trail to the beach (Plantation Beach which is the beach Cotton Bay Village is on). The guides will take you down the entire beach and then will take pictures of you before heading back to the middle of... More
