Let us give you some INFO:


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 ...!!!


  HEART HUGS FROM the herd in BUCCOO Tobago

    Veronika & Lennon

Have a JOYFUL day!

Great set up and very friendly staff - we were very lucky to be the only two taking session in the morning, so had the team and horses to ourselves. As a non-rider, I'm always slightly nervous when I get dragged along to join my wife riding but this was structured without being too formulaic. We loved riding on the... More

A group of 5 of us recently did the "swimming with horses" tour and it was an experience like no other any of us had experienced. Our group included a broad range of experience from little to lots. The owners and employees have a very calming and caring attitude toward their horses, which they stressed to all of us. They... More

A truly unique experience for experienced riders and beginners alike. Being with Horses is a unique experience. Ride with the horses through the beautiful turquoise waters of Buccoo bay and discover a new level of respect for this noble animal. It was also great to hear about the work Veronika and Lennon do making a difference to the lives of... More

Make a booking - they are busy. Afternoon was great. You will get soaked, take a change of clothes. People who work there are so kind, patient and loving, great to meet them as well as the horses.

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
