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 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!

A gentle guided trail ride through the rainforest. Being a beginner, I was a bit nervous - but Irwin was walking by my side the whole time (in bare feet!). We were shown all the amazing flora and fruit along the way and Irwin grabbed some beautiful avocado, grapefruit and cocoa pods for us to bring back to our boat.... More

We were convinced to try Rainforest Riding as our family's first riding experience because of the setting and the reviews we have read. We were not disappointed. Valerie takes great care to match the horse and rider... we had a very cute progression of small white pony, big brown pony, small horse and big stallion. Valerie's daughter came along for... More

This is a fantastic way to see the nature. Valerie is so nice and knowledgeable, as is her guide Irwin. The horses are well-looked after and very nice to ride. I would definitely recommend this to any- and everyone. Also look out for their new trails.
