My two daughters, aged 21 and 16, wanted to go horseback riding while on our recent family vacation over Christmas. I found Sandy Hoofs on St. Lucia’s official list of Covid-approved tour agencies after the tour desk at my resort told me that horseback riding was not a Covid-safe activity. My daughters thoroughly enjoyed their tour with Sandy Hoofs. They felt that the horses were well-treated and the guides were happy to be there. They loved that they ended up getting what amounted to a private tour, as it was just them and their two guides. They also loved the dogs. I appreciated how easy it was to book the tour, especially since I booked it only about 18 hours before they went.

I took my four boys ages ranging from 17 to 11 on the beach tour. The horses are beautiful, very well kept! The guide walked and led the horses for the two younger ones, but my older two are confident riders and were happy on their own. The scenery is amazing.

This was our favorite horseback riding trip. We had 3 dogs and one baby horse following us the entire time. The guides were so friendly and always made sure everything was ok. Thanks so much for the amazing experience. We will never forget it.

The best experience for my 8 year old daughter and myself. Had a beautiful 2 hour ride to and on the coastline and beach. The horses are well looked after and were very gently and sweet. Definitely coming back next time.

What can I say? If you want to go on the most epic ride of your life, Sandy Hoofs is the place to go.
I’m an experienced rider and my other half is learning.
A friendly welcome from Keri and Stephan (sorry if I spelt his name wrong!) and we were shown around the stables and met the beautiful horses.
All so well cared for and friendly.
We rode Diamond and Temperance and baby Sandy came along too.
My other half and I went on the 4 beaches ride and wow, it was stunning.
Amazing views, gorgeous beaches and just the best time.
Untouched surroundings and beautiful coastline and amazing weather.
Snacks and refreshments were even brought along for us to enjoy.
10/10 service and would not hesitate recommend for equestrians and novices alike!
We loved it so much we want to go back again next week!
Thank you Sandy Hoofs for one of the best rides I’ve ever been on ❤️

We booked Sandy Hoofs from the UK due to excellent reviews and were not disappointed. As we had limited time and for a birthday treat we took the private ride and were met at the cruise terminal by the lovely Jan and Keri and taken to the stables whilst being given an informative talk by Jan about the island. The horse were very well looked after and as horsey people we know what to look for. We had a fabulous ride along breathtaking cliff tops that are only accessible by horseback or foot and went down onto the beach for a surf ride. It was too rough to swim however that did not matter as we were given a lovely picnic with champagne and local produce to celebrate my husbands birthday. Amazing ride lovely staff and horses and stunning Atlantic coastal views. What could be better. Many thanks team xxx

My other half and I chose to do a horse ride (or horseback ride, depending on where you’re from) with Sandy Hoofs. We decided upon the experience to visit fours beaches in three hours. From the start, Sandy Hoofs had excellent communication and it was quick and easy to make a booking, and got a confirmation soon after (we booked ages in advance!)
We received a helpful reminder or two as we approached the day of our ride, and we were really looking forward to the ride!

We were not disappointed in any way. The horses were very well cared for, and the ride itself was incredible! The views were amazing and we rode around some completely untouched land that we would have never seen otherwise.

On our ride, we were accompanied by Stephan and rode on Temperance and Diamond. Temperance’s 6-month old foal, Sandy,
decided to come along with us as well. Both horses were lovely and chill, and it was really nice to see little Sandy running free along side and around us throughout the whole trip. In the end, we spent a bit over three hours out riding.

I very highly recommend Sandy Hoofs to anyone wishing to ride a horse and see some untouched areas of St Lucia. We loved it so much that we’re planning on riding with them again next week!

Thank you Keri, Stephan and everyone else (and all the horses!).

My first ever beach gallop with my mum and dad and it was amazing. I rode on Temperance who was a lovely mare and her foal Sandy tagged along for the ride. The views were fantastic and our escort was friendly and nice. I would recommend this stables to anyone visiting St.Lucia

We booked with the Sandy Hoofs stables from home having read reviews about another horse riding company experience.
A short taxi ride from the hotel to near the cricket stadium brought us to the stables. The stables appear a little ramshackle but this is a new site which is being improved upon.
Our first ride was a private picnic ride. We have different riding levels, myself being a novice and my wife quite experienced. This was easily accomadated for by the staff and away we went.
A short ride through a path brought us out to the sea view. A little gusty along the Atlantic coast and quiet, almost nothing around except a few cows. The picnic was good and we offered the guys a few bits as well as feed the horses banana skins which I never knew they ate.
Both rides gave plenty of time for a gallop and with some help from.the guys, I even achieved this firstly on a leading rein and then solo which gave me immense satisfaction.
Even after the ride was over, the lady at the stable (sorry, I can't remember the name) helped us back on the local bus which we asked to take. We got a lift back with some other riders on the final ride.
This riding experience I'm pretty sure was far better than the main stable in the area (Trims) as the horses were well looked after and healthy and far more intimate. I really hope this stable and experience becomes a success. If we come back St Lucia, we will come back again.

Thanks so much for this great review. Yes the stables are a work in progress and we look forward to showing you the progress if you visit our beautiful island of St. Lucia again. Very happy that you were able to comfortably and confidently experience a gallop on the beach with us, it truly is an adrenaline rush! Janica was happy to help you guys with the bus, it's always fun try out the local way when visiting any place and I hope this was an interesting ride for you both. Thanks again,
