What to expect
  • Get a taste for the rugged but beautiful backcountry of Saint Kitts during this easy morning or afternoon horseback riding adventure. Your ride will allow you the chance to experience the island's largely-unspoiled interior, journeying past sugarcane fields, crystal-clear freshwater pools and diverse plant life along the way. Start your horseback riding excursion at either 8:45am or 1:30pm (depending on the option you select), receiving a pickup from your Basseterre or Frigate Bay hotel and continuing to the starting point of your ride. Saddle up on your ride and head out into Saint Kitts' beautiful interior, following your guide along a series of gentle, sloping trails. During your ride you'll traverse the ruins of an old sugarcane mill, and enjoy unspoiled views of the island's majestic hillsides, before entering its dense rainforest. Then listen as your guide shares some details about the forest's many varieties of plant life, including wild sage, bamboo and the "flamboyant," a species known as the national flower of Saint Kitts and Nevis. You're also likely to encounter fruit plants bearing mangoes. Finish your horseback ride by cooling off with a complimentary refreshment and enjoying a return trip back to your hotel.

    Ride through old trails of cane fields leading into the lush forest and experience the beauty of our flora and fauna. As the guide lead you into narrow trails and over gentle slopes amongst thick forestry bursting with vegetation in their natural habitat. Listen to chattering of monkeys, chirping of birds whilst perched on your horse. From a distance experience the magnificent view of villages and the Caribbean Ocean on the horizon. At some point the guide will ask you to dismount whilst you take a leisurely walk with your horse to examine the lush plant life in moist fertile soil covered with leaves and microorganism. The tour ends by riding leisurely back through the same path. Bottled water will be issued whilst in the forest and at the starting point. Familiarity of horses is required.

I went on a ride with this company, organised by the cruise ship. I was fairly unimpressed. It is a pleasant route, with nice views. However, I didn't feel that the leaders (there was Nigel and another young man) were very experienced in organising a ride of about 8 people. No thought was given to the order that the horses walked in, and the personalities of the horses, and the experience (or lack of it) of the riders, were not taken into consideration. I feel it was luck, rather than judgement, that meant no accidents resulted. The horses seemed in reasonable condition, although acted quite head-shy whenever Nigel came near, and I suspect they have been hit in the past. They are very well-behaved, although Nigel insisted we rode nose-to-tail, as this meant the horses "couldn't run off". Despite the presence of a mounting block, riders just hauled themselves onto the backs of the horses, which is obviously not great for them (the horses) physically. Horses did not have their girths checked before we left, and did not have them loosened afterwards, so I suspect they are kept tacked up like this which would be very constricting and uncomfortable for them. Although I enjoyed my ride, to some extent, my concerns about the welfare of the horses overrode my enjoyment, and I would not do it again.

Our family of 4 took the horseback riding tour. Travis picked us up at our resort and took us to the stables and back. He was nice and talked to us throughout the ride. We were inexperienced riders, but Nigel our tour guide was helpful, with instructions on riding the horses. We took a break at the top. The views were amazing! Nigel offered to take pictures for us. We took a short break and had water. The horses were well-mannered. It was a hot day when we went, so we felt like the ride was long enough. I definitely recommend going in the morning, if possible, and taking a water bottle. They offer you bottled water at the end of your ride also.
