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 fiancee had a horse that she used to ride and show. She had never been for a ride on the beach or the ocean so we had to take advantage of the opporturnity while on vacation in Providenciales. It is freindly, helpful, nicely run operation and we had a very enjoyable experience. They have a wide variety of horses... More

Our 13 year old daughter rides a bit (camp and now is taking lessons) and wanted to ride on vacation. She really enjoyed a 90 minute afternoon ride. The process of making reservations could have been smoother - you can start online from the web site, but have to call to provide a credit card to hold the booking and... More

I spend a lot of time in the saddle, so when I sign up for a horseback riding tour, I generally expect the push-button, robot horses. This was not the case! They pair you up with a pony to match your skill and give you a chance to walk/trot/canter on the beach. I have never ridden on a beach before,... More

Friendly and professional staff. Accommodated everyone in our group. If you don't meet their requirements for weight or anything else, just email them. I am tall, therefore was over the weight limit, but they had a lovely Belgian draft horse that was happy to give me a ride! I just checked with them prior to making the reservation. The ride... More

It was incredibly fun and the staff were extremely helpful. My first time riding a horse and they could not have been more helpful. It was an absolutely fabulous day and I wish I could do it again!

My 9-yr-old and I did a 90-minute afternoon beach ride with Provo Ponies. I must say it was really enjoyable and I love that their horses are rescue horses. We had a large group on our day and it took a while for them to sort out which horse best suited each ride. I've had lots of riding experience and... More

We can do nothing but validate the previous positive reviews. I booked with them for my wife because she loves riding and I was much less interested, but found the experience above my expectations. I was less interested because of my lacking experience and my son who has never ridden. They do a great job of matching riders to horses... More

This was the highlight of my trip!!!! I am an experienced equestrian and this ride was amazing. It does not get any better than walking through crystal clear waters in beautiful weather on horses!! The staff is great and they matched up everybody on the ride with great horses that fit them all perfect! Everybody had a wonderful time. They... More

We have visited Provo Ponies three times. I recommend to any friends I have visiting Provo. The service and experience are spectacular. it is a true life experience to ride a horse on the beach and in the ocean. If you can do it DO IT! The guides are nice and patient. It's worth every penny.
