We booked a two hour ride at the stables and our guide took time to match us with the appropriate horses. The whole experience was fun and relaxed. We cantered on the beach and our horses were well behaved, but energetic. I was able to give my horse ( and myself) a refreshing shower after the ride. We would definitely... More

Rode with another stable - no comparison. This stable communicates pickup, booked thru the hotel. The tack was excellent. And the ride was well paced and fun. Overall experience was great. I wouldn't think about riding anywhere else.

It's always been on my bucket list to ride a horse on a wonderful sandy beach in the sea and so when I saw this excursion in Barbados I was determined to make it happen. My 17 year old daughter and I were picked up from our hotel and transported to the stables in the hills at the north of... More

I have always wanted to ride on the beach, and having a horse of my own I didn't just want to plod. It was just myself and the guild Alex that went on the ride, the horses are lovely and well looked after. We went on a 2hour ride, through the woods and then across the beach, we had some... More

I enjoyed the whole experience, from arriving at the yard and meeting the various (very well cared for) animals, to riding off down to the sea and part way back. The horses are very lean fit types, not really what I am used to but they behaved perfectly and carry riders with a range of abilities including complete beginners. Barbados... More

My fiance and I are both inexperienced horse riders and she was a little concerned at first at some of the steep drops we rode down but the horses were very steady and secure. After a little while we relaxed into it and Alex was a very good guide, stopping to take photos of everyone at scenic spots and chatting... More

We went for a beach ride at this yard while on holiday. My fiance is an inexperienced rider, he was perfectly matched to a very steady sort who wasn't strong and was quite happy to plod along while myself and the guide, Alex, picked up the pace on the beach. Alex was a great guide, very relaxed and friendly. We... More

Neither my husband or I had ever been horse riding before but decided we would give it a go. We were picked up from our hotel by the owner, and taken to the stables where we met our horses and Alex the guide. To say I was nervous is a bit of an understatement however I needn't have worried.

On arrival we were greeted by the ex-owner who assisted us in completing forms and fitting riding hats. We paid 180 bajan dollars (£60) for one and a half hours of riding per person. After this Alex took over matching horses to our ability and height etc mine was twilight (small but mischievous) and my partners was Arubia (chilled and... More
