We went on the horse ride to the ocean. The staff was nice, Mr. Trim and Sam were very nice. The horses were good enough, but seemed emaciated. The beach view was great, but the biting bugs left my left arm and elbow covered in bites (so wear Deet). Price was fine. The really coolest thing on the trip was... More

This place needs to be shut down!! First of all, we were not picked up from our resort on time for our tour, and we paid for a private tour because we got married in St. Luica and we wanted to enjoy a romantic horseback ride in the water as a newly mairred couple. Yeah, so when we did arrive,... More

We did not have an excursion set ahead of time with Trims. When we docked we asked the Taxi driver for the best LOCAL location for horse back riding that would allow us to ride in the ocean. He took us to Trims. We were the only ones there. They had to find a guide. The cost was a little... More

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!
