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.

People were friendly... Horses were well tended. The experience walking through the water was really memorable... All 3 kids (9,13,15) had a blast. No one should miss this as part of visit to T+C.

My daughter, grandson and I had sooooooooo much fun. The horses and guides took special care to ensure we had a safe but exciting ride. Riding on the sand and in the water was a highlight of my trip that I will always remember. Super nice folks and well worth the price.

We had such a great experience at Provo Ponies. It was completely worth it and one of the best things we did on our trip. The guides were very helpful. Neither of us had much riding experience, but they made us feel comfortable. Camero was especially awesome! Our horses were well behaved, and you could tell all the horses are... More

We traveled to Providenciales last week and booked Provo Ponies for my son, 8, who loves to ride. The Staff here is SO nice, caring and helpful! They truly LOVE their horses and take pride in their business. CAMERO was exceptionally kind and patient with my son and stayed next to him in the Ocean so Mommy and Daddy could... More

If you go to Turks & Caicos do NOT miss this!! We loved it so much we went back for a second day of riding. It feels like the most surreal dream riding these horses in the clear turquoise waters. Camille and her team, especially Camaro, are amazing - so sweet, patient, fun and interesting. We already miss Patches and... More

My husband and I rode Mango and Ike and had an incredible time. Our guides were terrific and fun, and knowledgeable about their horses. Incredible experience to ride on a horse in the sea! A must do!

Big thanks to Caroline and Cammera at Provo Ponies. We were picked up by taxi from our resort (included in price). After a short ride we arrived at the stable and were immediately met by Caroline. After a brief discussion about safety, helmets etc. Caroline advised who would be riding which horse depending on weight and experience. Next, an introduction... More

I was a bit ambivalent about this activity. Would the horses be healthy? Do the horses really want to lug around another fat American on their backs, and in the water, no less? Well, once we got to the stables, I could see that the strong and smart women running it, knew their business. We were matched to a horse... More
