“Great fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

Lyn and Nicola made a great effort to fit us in for a ride on our last day in Antigua and we couldn't be happier. The horses, Gandalf and Joy, are part Clydesdales, sure-footed and gentle, and we rode through mango trees and palms on entertaining trails to a beach for a trot and a wade chest deep. It went so well that I think we will take some more riding lessons to prepare us for a longer ride to Rendezvous Bay next time. Many thanks to Springhill Stables for a great birthday present for my wife, despite the sore muscles the next day!

“Awesome swim on horseback”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

It was lovely to see such well looked after horses and ride confidently into the sea for a swim. It was a dream come true.

“I'm not a horsey person but my good lady is ...great trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

I've ridden a horse about 4 times in past 10 years and I'm nae keen on the unpredictable beasts, I prefer a motorcycle, far less dangerous. However, this short ride out was a great experience. Julie is a lovely, friendly and knowledgable host and ride leader. The dobbins were sure footed and largely predictable and the route we did in approx 90 minutes barely touched a road and other traffic . Leading the horses into the sea was memorable.

If, like me, you're a wee bit concerned about riding horses or simply bemused by the attraction I'd still recommend this as a trip out. The wifey tells me the Horses are well cared for and she should know the amount of money she spends on hers....

Anyway a great and new experience that we will repeat.

Thanks Julie.

“Swimming with horses!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

What a magical experience it was,to ride bareback to a small cove, and then straight into the water. I so enjoyed this experience as it was unique, and can thoroughly recommend it! Julie, the owner is absolutely charming and offers other riding experiences.
Have fun!

“Bareback swimming with horses !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

We were in Antigua last year and did a 2 hour beach ride with Julie which was great but even more memorable was the other ride we did which was a bareback ride to a little cove .....and then straight into the sea wearing just a swimsuit ( me ,not the horse !) They love to swim and I don't know anywhere else I could have done this .
On our return to Antigua this year , I was delighted to see Julie was still there so immediately booked again and did it last week with one friend and today with another !
Great experience , try it .
