One of the most unique ways to experience Grand Cayman! Trek along the edge of the Caribbean Sea atop one of our magnificent beauties! Enjoy a lazy walk as the surf rolls in and out at the feet of your horse. For the more adventurous, feel the wind in your hair as you canter along the white sand beach. Try something completely out of the ordinary with the swim ride - hold on tight as your horse is steered into the cool and refreshing waters of the Caribbean for a wonderful swim.The true romantics can see the softer side of Cayman with the moonlit ride during the full moon. Guided only by the natural instincts of your horse, enjoy the peaceful nirvana of paradise where the modern world is far and away!Whatever your choice, Spirit of the West delivers premium service with true Caymanian hospitality. Each ride is an experience of a lifetime and every rider feels like they have done something they will never forget!

We had an amazing Caribbean Swim with Michael and the horses. Michael was a great guide, telling us history of the island and all about the horses as we rode along the beach. Once we got to the swim portion, it was amazing! Definitely a highlight of the week. The horses loved the swim, and I think we were all... More

Riding the horses bareback through the water was amazing! We have ridden horses many times, but our family of four thought the water ride was the best. The guides are very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and can tell great stories about growing up in the Caymans. We will do this again on our next visit.

If you want to ride horses in the ocean, this was a great place to experience it. Every thing went off without a hitch and my wife and I had a great time. Try to get Jordan as your guide. Thanks Spirit of the West for a great experience.

My husband and I had a great time at Spirit of the West! Our guide, Jordan, was great. He was very informative, offered great information about the horses we rode, the island, and had great tips as far as places we needed to visit. He really helped us feel comfortable around the horses and in Grand Cayman. Neither my husband... More

The trail walk to and back was ok. There was not much of a "beach" in terms of sand, but of course you have lots and lots of beautiful turquoise sea to swim in! I appreciated that the guide swam in with us with his horse and was able to get our horses to swim for a bit even if... More

We went on the Caribbean Sea swim on Thursday which was really great fun! I am an experienced rider but it was my boyfriends first time riding - we were both catered for as I was able to go for a gallop at the end! Horses in great condition and Paul and the other gentlemen were both lovely! For what... More

We were disappointed in our experience with this company. We arrived and had requested a private ride but there were three other people there. They then got two of us on our horses and sent us out to stand in the hot sun while they mounted the other three riders and sent them off ahead of us. So we basically... More

We enjoyed a nice ride on the beach. The horses were great. We lost our camera and Paul had phoned us in the U.S. even before we arrived home, to report that he had found it and he mailed to us. It was an expensive camera and we appreciate how honest and helpful he was in returning it to our... More
