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.

Provo Ponies was on the top of my to-do list & it definitely did not disappoint! We made a reservation a few weeks prior to arriving on the island; the booking process was seamless, & when I asked to add a roundtrip taxi last-minute, they did a great job of accommodating. Being “tour snobs,” we prefer private tours while vacationing,... More

I have been on quite a few trail rides and this one was very fun! Going into the water with the horse was a first for me and was a really fun experience! The only negative thing I have to say is the horses are not quite as well behaved as the other trail rides I have been on previously.... More

A group of 11 took the plunge and had a ball despite the lack of cooperation from the weather. The guides were great to work with and were obviously excellent with both people and horses !! Riding on Long Beach and in the water is a must for everyone regardless of level of experience. All of us agreed that it... More

This is a fun experience. We happened to do it on a slightly cold day which made the horses a bit more skittish, but the guides kept everything together. If you are looking for a unique experience like horseback riding on the beach, you can trust Provo Ponies to deliver. They were extremely good with children, too, which is a... More

It's our second year going back riding with the kids 9 and 7 years old when we come to Turks and Caicos. It's wonderful riding along the beach and riding in the water. For the more experience riders, you get a chance to canter at the beach which my husband and my oldest daughter did. My 7 years old daughter... More

We did a private 2 person ride with Provo Ponies in January 2015. We were able to talk to people who did a normal group ride and they seemed to love their experience just as much as we did. Our guide was very friendly, professional and helpful. The horses are well trained and the staff took time matching us with... More

This was an amazing experience. I'll admit it wasn't on my top "to do" while in TCI but I'm so happy I did. It was magical. Every horse I observed had a soft demeanor and were well suited for riders of all levels and experience. It's obvious the staff love their jobs and take pride in matching you with the... More

Everything about our experience was amazing. The staff takes care of their guests, tends to their horses very well and makes the day unforgettable. From first-timers to the most experienced riders, the dip in the ocean is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and worth every penny.

My partner and I spent two weeks in Provo. Our Provo Ponies experience was definitely a highlight of the trip. The staff were great, matched up each individual to a horse that suits their ability. Informative and clear introduction and instruction upon first mounting. Both my partner and I really enjoyed that this isn't your typical 'nose to tail ride',... More
