Type: Horseback Riding Stables, Outdoor Activities
Owner description: 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 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.

This is a must do when visiting the island! The people and the horses were great! It amazed me how the horses go right into the water and they all seemed to love it! The people at Provo Ponies are doing a great thing, as all of their horses are rescues and I they are continuing to rescue more! I... More

We had an amazing morning as a family. Camille and her team were great. The weather was amazing and the ponies were friendly and well behaved. With a full range in our family of six, the team at provo ponies picked our horses perfectly and we had a blast. I would totally make this the excursion to do in Provo...

If you've never ridden on the beach or in the ocean, this is the place to try it! The ride is very safe and the horses very nice. For more advanced riders they offer the opportunity to move along at a trot or canter in certain areas. The horses are matched up well with the riders size and ability. I... More

First of all, the dogs were friendly, healthy and well cared for (see another review). The staff got to know every rider, took great care in assigning the right horse to each person, accommodated people who weren't sure they would want to go in the water, and so on. More than some other experiences in other places, we felt they... More

Provo Ponies was a great experience. It is really easy to book through the website, they offer several options for times and ride length, and once you arrive they are simply lovely people. The horses are well taken care of, and the experience is like nothing else! If I travel to Turks and Caicos again, I will definitely go back... More

We had a great time with Provo Ponies. Our horses, Thor and Turtle, were great and the ride was very enjoyable. What a treat to get to ride in the crystal clear waters of Turks and Caicos. I'd highly recommend this excursion to anyone. It is a fantastic way to spend an hour or two on the island and one... More

It's been a while since our trip but I absolutely need to review Provo Ponies. Our experience was so memorable and I don't think our trip would have been the same had we not included this activity! It was very easy to book through our hotel, transportation was included (just for a small tip), and the people who own and... More
