Provo Ponies is a small riding stable located on the southeast end of the island of Providenciales. We do two guided rides a day, morning ride at 9:30am and an afternoon ride at 3:30pm during winter hours, 4:30 during the summer. We can take all experience levels from 7 years old and up (if they are younger they must be experienced riders). There is an extra charge if someone must be led. Everyone rides their own horse or pony, no double riding. We have a 200 pound weight limit. Groups are never more than 12 riders. Private rides are available for an additional fee. Helmets are available and are required for children 17 and under.We ride along quiet dirt roads and trails to Long Bay Beach, a 4 mile long beach. We do our best not to do nose to tail type rides, and more experienced riders are given the chance to trot or canter along the beach depending on the tides. The shallow waters of the Caicos Banks off Long Bay make it an ideal place to take your horse into the ocean. You can book a one hour ride or a 90 minute ride. We can arrange for transportation to and from your hotel.Reservations are required. A Visa or Mastercard number is required for all reservations, as well as weights and experience levels of all riders in your group so that we can properly assign horses to riders.We are a fully insured and licensed business in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Who wouldn't want to ride ponies on the beach? The whole experience with Provo Ponies far exceeded my expectations. My riding level is novice, at best. The instructions were good, my horse was kind and I had the time of my life! This was a bucket list item. I was thrown from a horse at 16, broke my ankle and... More

We stayed at Beaches...family of 4....53 to 20 years old. Trip was planned for my 50th! My 20 year old daughter had "ride horse in ocean" on bucket list. None of us are riders. I emailed back and forth with Provo Ponies a few weeks prior to going and they were outstanding to deal with. I slowly went from booking... More

Such a fun experience! One of the highlights of my trip. The staff is professional and friendly, and the horses are well taken care of. They easily accommodate various experience levels in the same group. Highly recommend!

I did not know just how much fun this would be :) We rode for 1 1/2 hours and we had a blast. My horse was named "Pilgrim". Very well mannered. Highly recommend this excursion.

Provo Ponies is just a few minutes from Grace Bay. The staff were very friendly and informative. Everyone was matched with a pony or horse, and every rider was given an orientation of their animal's personality and quirks, and a brief lesson on riding skill and animal control. We were on the 90 minute afternoon ride. I rode the horse... More

Our family visited Provo ponies on 4/24/15. From the start everything was perfect. The staff took care to match each of us with a pony or horse, provided guidance to riding that pony/horse before heading out. The ride to the beach was pretty thru a trail....the beach was picture perfect and the horses enjoyed the water as much as we... More

This was our second time going to Provo Ponies and it did not disappoint. Its a once in a lifetime opportunity to ride horses in the crystal blue Caribbean. Id suggest booking online before your trip because they do book out at certain times.

Riding a horse as it swims through the warm turquoise water with 19 kite boarders ripping through the waves in front of me on the horizon, warm sun, blue seas and skies...it doesn't get much better than this. A serious barn run by real horse lovers who care for their animals. Great afternoon. Highly recommended.

This was amazing, the girls that did the tour were very informative and took good care of the horses. It was a nice facility and you could tell that the horses were cared for. The time in the ocean with the horses was very fun.
