We been mixed group of the people and took 2 tours, forest ride and beach ride. Among us was people which did not had any horse riding experience. We enjoyed both of the trips: one slow (as for not riders) with great landscape and views and beach ride with going to water and gallop on the beach! I recommend rain... More

Valerie was really great to deal with. We were on a cruise and wanted to horseback ride. Valerie arranged for a taxi (our expense) to pick up us at the cruise port. It was a fairly long cab ride from the port to Valerie's place (1 1/2 hours). With the ride and the travel both ways, we were gone from... More

My husband and I were able to do a 2hour ride with the owner Valerie mid December while we were docked on a cruise. We emailed prior to arrange the ride. We took the local transportation at the port. We found the bus station with the local vans. When you get there just get on one the one that the... More

If you are in Dominica then this is must as the scenery is absolutely breathtaking. The tour is also guided which provides wonderful insight into the native plants and trees of Dominica as well as historical background of the various landmarks seen while climbing up the mountain which provides the best overlook of Portsmouth you can possibly see!

My husband and I went on the rain forest trail last week and was so much fun. Beautiful scenery, and the guide keep picking fresh fruit and peeling it for us. Really a nice time. Lovely place to visit and see nature. Would certainly do it again if I am back in that area. This is perfect for riders with... More

Valerie Francis is a friendly person with great interpersonal skills. I worked with her as an intern 2013 where i learnt a lot of horses and had a passion for them. Her idea of re introducing horses for tourism was a fantastic idea for the economy. Love it! I would love to be a pro on riding just like her... More

We had a wonderful time with Valerie and Ken. My partner had never ridden a horse before and they made him feel safe and comfortable. There explanations and experience on the island added greatly to the trip. I loved tasting the raw cocoa bean and even the horse enjoyed the mango. I would definitely recommend a riding trip with Valerie.

I must say we hit it lucky planning our day with Valerie and Ken! The rains had been extreme and caused flooding in much of the tourist attractions on the day we were in port. No problem for Ken who was there on time to deliver my husband and I to Valerie. He was sure to point out all points... More

We were staying at Secrets Bay Resort and did not wanted to spend 100 per person (the hotels offers you a similar tours but more fancy) We found this... More

We had such an amazing time riding with Valerie and Kenneth. From riding in the water to an incredible tour of the fort, both of our guides were patient, helpful and full of great information. And their kids are learning from two pro's too! Thank you Valerie and Kenneth for putting a shine too an already brilliant trip!
