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 6 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 secluded 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. « less

My daughter and I had a wonderful time on the beach with Provo ponies. A unique experience. When the horses go into the water it is thrilling! A must do while you are in Turks and Caicos!

We loved this excursion! My husband was an avid horseback rider growing up, and I had to beg him to go on this as he thought it would be "lame"....but after we did it he was begging to do it again the next day! The horses were nice (a little feisty but not difficult to ride), the guides were knowledgable... More

My niece was visiting from England and her one wish while she was here was to go horse riding on the beach . Provo Ponies fulfilled that wish , a little nerve racking in the yard looking at all the large horses but everyone was given a horse of suitable character and skill. A nice ride down to the beach...

It was my and my husband's first time riding and we were a little bit nervous, but the girls at Provo Ponies put us at ease with their friendliness and expertise! They will pair you with the most compatible horse according to weight and height, then you will get to individually be trained in the basics of riding. I couldn't... More

My husband and I did the 60 minute ride on 8/29/14. We loved every minute of it! I was nervous before we left but the girls were very calming and made sure I was ok. They pair you based on ability and weight. I had Ruby and my husband had Ike. We took the horses down a dirt road, to... More

I've been on nose to tail horse rides before but this is NOT one of those. The horses go into the water up to their bellies and love it as much as you do. you are actually riding them instead of being on autopilot. The handlers do an awesome job of pairing you with the right horse for your level... More

I rode Pilgrim. He was gentle and gave me a great first experience. I'm over 50, so that's saying alot! The walk to the beach was not as grueling as others have noted, because of the heat. I was prepared with sunscreen, long loose pants (not jeans) and wide brimmed hat. The walk in the ocean was really nice, except... More

My family and I had the honor and pleasure of taking the morning riding with Provo Ponies on Wednesday 8/13/14. This was originally a rescue situation and has turned into an amazing treasure on the island of Providenciales in the Turks & Caicos. Each rider was given a tutorial on the horse that was chosen for them based on their... More
