Being-with-horses & Healing with HORSES

Let us give you some INFO:

             

We currently offer our trail-swim combination. This special 2 hour experience is a joyful one for both horses and riders, including first timers who have never spent time with horses. Excellent guidance and instruction makes it possible for all riders to be at ease.

After introducing the horses to our guests (at which point each rider chooses his/her 'team partner' horse), we take everyone through Buccoo Village, past the goat race track and through the wetland mangroves to the beach FOR A LONG BEACH RIDE to the END of Buccoo BAY where we then swim with the horses along the shore .

 

Everybody needs to make their booking in advance due to limited space.

  ---->we go out 5 days a week ---> once a day.

  EITHER 9am - 11am or 3pm - 5pm

Let us know when you like to go out - we will check availability ...!!!

  Thanks!!!

  HEART HUGS FROM the herd in BUCCOO Tobago

    Veronika & Lennon

Have a JOYFUL day!

My wife, daughter and eldest granddaughter visited Beingwithhorses in August last year and insisted that I gave it a go during this vacation. We took the short taxi ride from our hotel at Turtle Beach. Once the basic paperwork was completed we were taken to meet the horses. They are all rescue horses each with an amazing story to tell....

This is not horseback riding - it is horseback SWIMMING! To go into the sea with horses is a wonderful experience. And I don't mean that the horses go in just with their hoofs, even YOU will get wet! It's a magical ride. And the organisation is great, they have an important mission so if you go and enjoy the... More

My grown up daughter and I visited 'Being With Horses' in November 2015 and it was one of the highlights of a wonderful holiday. I have ridden for years but never on a swimming horse, it was a magical experience. Buccoo Beach is stunning and the horses were all healthy and happy and once I got over the shock of... More

It does not matter if you have ridden before or are an experienced rider. The team have set up a unique experience which you feel from the moment you arrive. The horse chooses you - this is a partnership not master and beast and is far better for it. The ride and swim is fun and awesome as are the... More

This was my first time riding and it definitely was a thrill. I recommend it for all those who seek to have a fun filled time and great memories to last a life time. Lovely team to be around and an awesome herd to ride with. Sheldon

My girlfriend and I took a ride with Veronika and it was excellent. They have a unique way of handling and riding the horses, which only added to the experience. The animals are so well tempered that Veronika is able to use a simplified setup, as close to bare back as possible. If you want to feel like part of... More

Had a great time riding Jennifer the first horse to start the business. Riding in the ocean was a blast. I think the horses like it too. Lopez the dog, who everyone seems to know) ran along side with us and got a picture in the water with me and Jennifer. They called it J. Lo

I've lived in Tobago for 10+ years and was finally able to enjoy Being with Horses, courtesy of a friend. I have loved horses my entire life, so this was not to miss... Lennon and Veronika were amazing hosts, and the herd of horses was more wonderful than I could have imagined. Zimbu, the tall white horse, “chose” me. Intimidating... More
