“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Our trail ride was excellent! The horses were so well behaved, our guide was friendly and knowledgable, and the scenery was great. We got tons of pictures on the beach and had a wonderful time. I am experienced with horseback riding and it was nice to see well cared for horses with properly fitting tack. Safety was a top priority for the tour and that was appreciated. I felt relaxed and at ease the entire time. A wonderful way to spend a morning. Next time I'm in the Bahamas ill be sure to visit again.

“Great for a Noob”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

The owner of Happy Trails was an extremely nice woman who picked us up from Atlantis. Once we got there, we were matched with horses based upon our riding ability. I was a first time rider so I got put with an older horse. The tour was great because we got to ride through the suburbs of Nassau that you don't normally get to see. Eventually we got to the beach where the tour guide leading took pictures of us on our horses in the water. It was an extremely enjoyable experience.

“Nice excursion!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We did the horseback riding tour with Happy Trails and had a great time. What impressed me most were the horses! They were extremely well cared for and beautifully groomed. I have taken many trail rides and most of the time the horses are old and dirty. I would recommend this stable! We had no wait. My only criticism is the $20 spectator charge; as there was nothing to watch!!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Had an awesome time! Our tour guide Wayne was fun yet attentive. Yes you do have to get past the village and the shrubs but the beach was exhilarating. Wont forget this tour. It was just unforgettable. We did have to wait for 15-20 mins for them to get the horses ready but what the heck you're in the bahamas! everything runs slower! If you want fast paced, go to NY or somethin

“Happy trails... BS! zero personality!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

WOW .. I am amazed how crappy this "tour" was . Me and my sisters decided to take this tour-- the day started off with a 30 minute car ride with "DUKE" seemed like a nice guy . We arrived at the stables only to wait for another 30 minutes for them to get the horses ready>( ya they werent ready). Ok horses are ready , Turns out DUKE was going to be our guide.. cool right ? WRONG..after a few instructions from "DUKE" he suddenly turns into a total a-hole. saying " he has been riding horses correctly for over 40 years" after a few instructions we get moving. We start moving through a neighborhood with traffic and Duke yelling at us to" stay to the right and keep up"!! OK.... we do as we are told .. so about 10 minutes through a neighborhood with this A-hole yelling "keep your back straight " "heels down" WTF started to annoy us ! All the while we were looking at each other puzzled... ! well , we finally reach a trail with a bunch of shrubs and branches and crap .. not pretty! this was for about 15 minutes .. UGH where is the ocean!!! finally we reach the freaking beach all uptight --> trying not to make Duke yell at us ! we find a couple of picture ops and duke yells again-->" HELLO" "put your camaras away you will have pic time later" !! WHOA are you serious dude! .. Then he tells us to direct the horses into the ocean .. well this was the coolest part of our " tour" to say the least this was a horrible experience worsssst part of trip---> 150$ in the trash .. You have been warned its not worth it.. ! ..
