One of the most unique ways to experience Grand Cayman! Trek along the edge...

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!

My daughters and I are very experienced riders and wanted to try the beach ride and swim. Not only was our ship late, and Donovan waited an hour for us, he is so knowledgeable about local history and government that my economist daughter had fascinating conversation with him. I learned a lot about island history and government as well. Jordan... More

Horseback riding in crystal clear Caribbean water is a completely unique experience, even for those who ride regularly. We did a private ride with Jordan and it was worth every penny and more.

Had a wonderful ride along the beach and into the ocean. The guide was friendly and talkative about the island as well as the horses. Felt comfortable on the horses. We would do it again and highly recommend them.

We just had the privilege of doing the Caribbean Sea Swim private tour with Jordan last week. We are still talking about it to this day and will pass this recommendation on to our friends going in the spring. The price and the few hours of the excursion are all well worth it. Jordan was such a great and personable... More

Today we rode on the beach with our guide Jordan and his dad. The horses were beautiful and the experience was amazing. Jordan was very knowledgeable about the island and the horses. I will never forget the beauty of it all. We went into the water up to the horses necks and they were swimming while we were on bare... More

Such an incredible and fun experience for our family of adults age 31 to 85 and 86. Never imagined our horseback ride on the beach would include riding bareback so deep into the water that it was to the top of the horses backs and that the horses would even be swimming a few steps! What a fun challenge to... More

I visited Paul and his horses this past weekend. We had a couple of teenagers and multiple adults. Everyone had a great time. This is our first time riding on horses into the sea. It was definitely a very unique experience. We were fortunate to have limited people on the beach. There were no cruises on the island the day... More
