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

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...

When on vacation with my wife and 2 teenage daughters it can be tough to find something everyone enjoys. Well we all enjoyed our ride. It was a great way to spend the morning. The staff was friendly, helpful, and a lot of fun. The horses are beautiful and of varying personalities so that everyone could be paired with a... More

Amazing experience horseback riding on the beach. Everyone is great. You should make reservations before you arrive to ensure you get the day & time you want. They book up fast.

Theses are rescued horses. The work they are doing with them is great, but there is a lot of yelling going on in the ride to keep that horse and this horse and another horse away from each other so they don't fight. It made my group of eight very nervous and we did have some unruly horses. Made for... More

We are very sorry your riding experience was not as enjoyable as you had hoped. We do guarantee no more than 12 guests on a ride. We will add extra guides if there are a lot of inexperienced riders or a lot of children on the ride. We did not have extra guides on your ride though and there were... More

Wife and I went for a 60 minute Saturday morning ride. They picked us up at our resort, and drove us to the stable a few short minutes away. Once we arrived, our group was briefed on what to expect and the basics according to each rider's experience. We were then assigned horses personalized to our experience level and were... More

This was an absolutely amazing experience! A group of three out of our seven family and friends who went on the trip took advantage of this ride and it was definitely the highlight of the trip!
