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!

I have been going on cruises with my family for seven or eight years. We have always booked our excursions from the cruise lines because of safety and security concerns and the assurance of getting back to the ship on time. I was getting bored with the excursions that the cruise line offered in Grand Cayman so about 6 months... More

My wife Susan booked a trip for the two of us earlier this week. After a short drive from our lodging on Seven Mile Beach we rendezvoused with owner Paul Rivers for our trip. Right from the start Paul showed a keen interest in helping us enjoy the experience. He was patient and engaged, both in instruction and ultimately in... More

Very rarely do you find a business owner that will actually pick you up in his own vehicle and deliver you to your excursion because you misunderstood the local time and missed your tour departure. Thats exactly how this amazing business handled our little mishap! Then the owner drove us all the way back to our port. We had an... More

This experience was amazing! My husband and I did the group swim ride which was totally cool! Another couple with us did a private ride. If I was them, I would be disappointed as the ride was not very private. So in my opinion not worth the price. But the group ride was awesome and totally worth the price. Our... More

You meet with someone from the company at Papagallo (which is where the asphalt ends and the fun begins) where we were free to use the restroom and see the parrots even though the restaurant wasn't officially open. When the horse trailer arrives you follow them down the dirt road and park along the side of the road near Wild... More

Excellent horseback riding tour and experience. We met the group at Papagallo restaurant on the tip of West End. The meeting location was relatively easy to find and figure out. On the trip my wife and I wore pants and t-shirts, but others wore shorts and were fine. We also wore sandals and I would recommend that. The guides were... More

This was the highlight of our vacation. The horses and guides are wonderful! The tour starts with a ride along the beach where the guide tells you about various things on the island. After about an hour, you stop and the guide takes off the saddles and you ride into the ocean! Be prepared to get wet as I got... More
