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.

Such a well run and beautiful business. You can tell they really loved and care for their horses. They knew everything about each one, their personalities and things to watch for during the ride. The train it's self, the most beautiful ride I've ever been on . To ride in the ocean is stunning. Our entire family now joke, we... More

This was my second time to PP - the first was in 2006. The horses seem much happier and cared for and the ride was much much more fun this time around. They now bring you for a short walk and then onto the beach. Those who are comfortable can canter. Horses walk and swim in the water for a... More

We are glad to hear you enjoyed your ride. We do our best to make everyone feel comfortable and safe. I am sorry you misunderstood the arrival time of 9:30am. If you arrived at 9:05 you were about a half an hour early. We would have still been getting the horses ready and may not have been able to go... More

Hands down the most amazing horseback ride ever! Our two families of four with varied riders loved this morning. We went on the 90 minute ride and going into the water was such a highlight with the horses! It is worth every penny! The guides selected horses based on riding experience and made excellent selections. Our trip would not have... More

We had another wonderful riding experience with Provo Ponies, and this time we went with friends. I requested "Turtle" since I had him last year, and in my mind he is the best horse they have. He listens well, follows in line behind all the other horses, and is the tallest, most beautiful horse they have. My boys had a... More

Went on a 2 person 90 min private ride with I believe her name is Carolyn. She was awesome and made me feel really at ease. The turquoise water was breathtaking and almost felt unreal riding the horses through the water. I wish I could do this every day....just so perfect.

We took our two children, ages 9 and 6, for their first riding experience here. What an amazing experience! The staff was extremely thorough in explaining proper riding technique as well as friendly. My children were quickly comfortable and as were my husband and I. This is something that you cannot experience in many places! Riding through the water was... More

The staff here was amazing, kind and patient. I enjoyed the ride very much. You will get wet so plan accordingly. It's very convenient that they now include the taxi arrangements when you book a ride.

Our two teenaged daughters had a great trip with Provo Ponies. The horses are all well trained and took commands beautifully. The PP website can be a bit intimidating with their various levels of experience in riding. In practice the guide was a bit more relaxed and let our two riders find their natural comfort level with the horses. Highly... More
