About
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!

This was such a fun experience. I applaud @beingwithhorsestobago for the love and care they show to these horses. Their home is a large piece of land on a cliff overlooking the ocean where they are given the freedom to graze freely, frisk around happily and interact with one another. Each horse has its own personality and one of the things we got to experience was they way the horses chose their riders. We formed a semi circle and each outstretched a hand. When the horse likes you he/she comes up to your hand and there an instant bond is formed with rider and horse. I was fortunate to be chosen by Apollo. He was a loving fellow..gentle and calm. We adapted to each other pretty well and that made the experience all the more relaxing and enjoyable. Behind each horse was so much history and it was a pleasure to learn about each of them..Thank you @beingwithhorsestobago for loving them, caring and being so passionate about their well being and providing them a safe and happy haven. You guys are an example to the world and you totally rock! Sending love to you all.

The staff holds great empathy for animals!

You are taught how to greet the horses and to build an understanding and trust with them before riding.

You are also taught how the manage the horse effectively while riding (in terms of posture, body movement and steering) quite quickly and comfortably.

My absoulte favourite thing about this experience is that you are provided with the nessary skill and freedom to ride independently (out ahead or within the group). (No hand guided lap around a small ring and that's all)

You feel quite special guiding your horse around obstacles and onlookers; and at your own pace.

I rode Apollo! He is very sweet and intuitive, so tries to make his rider feel safe and comfortable!
Even if you don't ride him, say hello to him for me.

The experience was exciting was lovely, getting to ride through 3 different terrains.
My only issue is that the riding time was a little too short.

We walked in and from that moment, she graced us with her words. Veronika is versed with the ability to bring us into the world of horses. Her mission of ensuring we were calm and understood the way of life the horses experienced was achieved seemlessly throughout the introductions. Lennard, co-owner and very experienced in providing the necessary instructions for riding a horse, was distinguished in his craft. We felt comfortable in our awkwardness in leading these giant, strong but calm animals. Humbled! You are encouraged to have this experience, if just to step out of your comfort zone.

Life changing experience. I held the reins and the horse held my heart. Definitely recommend 👌
Veronika and Lennon guide you completely while allowing you to enjoy a personal experience and learn about the horses.

Loved spending this time with the horses. Veronica and her husband Lennon did everything to make us comfortable and to enjoy the experience fully. The horses are loved and very well taken care of. It was a peaceful experience of connection with animals and nature. Will definitely recommend Healing with Horses to everyone who loves animals. Mr Lennon with his witty comments made me brave enough to ride comfortably and to even stand on Zimbu for an amazing pic. Love what these guys are doing. Keep up the great work!!

From start to finish I could not recommend this experience more!!! Sarah in the office was lovely and helpful, making the booking process so smooth. The love and care Veronika and Lennon exude for the herd, and for the staff who care for the horses, is palpable. Veronika helped my son transition from too nervous to ride to building such a bond with Mucho Halos that they were soon zipping along together in the sea. He even felt comfortable enough to stand up on his special horse!!

Do not miss this opportunity! Supporting their cause is worth every penny but what you gain from the experience is so much more than I can put into words. Thank you to the herd who allowed us to join them on their daily swim, and to the team at Healing with Horses who made it possible. We will be back.

My experience here was very superb. It was so much more than expected. My family and I had so much fun that we cannot stop talking about it. I am still flabbergasted at how Veronika was able to persuade my 2 year old to be calm on the Pony (Winston). These Horses are amazing and I think Apollo is my favourite thus far :) Everyone had a fantastic time and we surely would not be strangers to this establishment. You guys rock!!!

This experience was beyond what I could have ever imagined. They whole team went above what I could describe and it was a feeling of magic watching the horses run in the water and be around you for the hours as you are there. Definitely recommend and would do it again.

Being among this herd of horses each with a unique personality and life story has been a remarkable and extraordinary experience for me. Feelings of trust within myself have been amplified. Trust is such a central part of all relationships and bonding with a horse and holding the reins develop trust. I recommend everyone to try this.

One of the best experiences on the Island. Veronica's passion for horses is clearly displayed and radiated to our family. I was sceptical to begin with but by the end I was wishing that it would not end. Four year old grandson was living a dream and had no fear with any of the horses. Riding through the waves is a once in a lifetime event. Recommend buying the photographer package.
