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

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

Our family of seven rode w/Provo Ponies last week. We went on the afternoon 90 minute ride. We all had a great time and enjoyed every minute. My youngest was very scared about the ride and going in the ocean but the handlers & guides were amazing with him. They did even better w/me because I was ready to bail... More

We booked a private ride on the beach for my family of five. None of my other family members knew how to ride and one of my children has special needs, yet the instructor's patience and expertise made everyone very comfortable right away. Within ten minutes my husband and kids were comfortable on their horses and we rode through some... More

Provo ponies is a small operation. So you get a private ride! The horses are great, and the ride down the beach is just lovely. You go by Turtle Cove and a popular reef area for snorkeling. There are lovely homes along part of the beach that are fun to check out. They accomodate all levels of riders, allowing you... More

Great experience! Riding along the beach and into the crystal clear waters is awesome! The guides will take pictures of you and your party with your camera. Makes a great souvenir!

Had a great time horseback riding down to the beach and then in waist-deep water. Some of us got to canter on the beach and that was thrilling. The only negative for me was that I reserved for a party of 6 and we all went, however after my husband climbed on his horse, his back started hurting and he... More

It was my first time riding a horse and the staff at Provo Ponies made me feel very comfortable. We did the group ride, and the tour guides were fantastic! They took us to the beach and then let us bring the horses into the water... it was the best part of our vacation and they took pictures of us... More

We did the one hour ride with another couple. We had rented a car, so we drove there and ended up there very early. The staff was very nice and we got to relax while watching them get the horses ready. There were also some friendly dogs that were happy for some attention. The horses were great and the staff...
