Every year when I visit St. Lucia, I take a ride at Trims. I am very experienced, owning two horses and I ride all over the world. I must say, that I always love these rides. I went on a special two hour tour of the Northern part of the Island, cantering on the beach, and through beautiful open country... More

We had the best time doing this little horseback ride down to the beach and back. It was so cool to ride a horse bareback while they were swimming. We were a group of four girls and had the most amazing time! Our tour guides were Sammi and Kervon and they showed us the best time. Once you get to... More

We were picked up on time from our hotel and brought to the stable where we were set up with riding helmets. "Cocoa" was our guide and did a great job. We had all abilities of riders and he was good about making sure we all had a great time. Once we got to the beach we all got off... More

We got lost driving around the windy inland on a way to the hike. Kids were tired, we were desperate for something to do. Enter Trim's. I can say this: The folks were very accommodating, giving the kids a ride around the stable a few times even though it outside the scheduled time. Nothing to call home about though.

We had a great experience with Trim's stable. The service was very good from pickup/drop-off at our hotel to personal attention of the guides. Riding bareback into the ocean just before the sunset was the best part - don't forget your camera, the guides will make the pictures of you. A half dozen of kitesurfers riding the waves in the...

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!
