Definitely the highlight of my trip to Barbados. I was nervous when I arrived at the Ocean Echo Stables as I've never been near a horse in my life, but was instantly put at ease by the friendly, family atmosphere at the Stables, and by my guide on the trip - a guy called Bernard. My partner and I saddled up on two beautiful horses (decent safety equipment included) and took a trip through the countryside, into a wood, past a waterfall, and onto lush beaches! It was just gentle enough that we were both confident with the horses, and exciting enough that we were fully immersed in the adventure. A word about Bernard - the guy is amazing, he goes out of his way to make this a truly magical experience for you. He took a raft of photos for us (believe me, it's not easy taking photos when you're trying to ride a horse), entertained us with some of his songs about Barbados life, and even allowed us to take a detour through a maze of banana trees, which was my partner's mad idea but ended up being great fun! Add to this the first class customer service from Samantha, who took great care of us and made us fresh juice to round off our horse trip, and you've got a "must visit" attraction that is more than worth the modest cover price. Well done guys!
