This was an enjoyable day. We had a good trail ride and got to ride bareback in the water. But we were a little disappointed that we were taken down to the beach to souvenir shops and just left there for a while feeling pressured to buy something. It would have been much nicer to ride for a little longer.... More

In all honesty, we had always thought it would be cool to ride horseback on the beach. And I'm glad we can say we did. However, the bad with the good made this an average trip. AJ, our guide was good. Took all the pictures we needed. We just gave him the camera and he was our papparazzi and gave... More

From the looks of it there are other horse riding places on St. Lucia that are better, but this was our only option given to us when we stayed at the Bay Gardens resort. The picked us up from the lobby, it wasn't a far drive even though the beach is on the Atlantic side. I'm no expert but the... More

Dennis was an amazing guide and riding horses into the sea was such a blast! It was such a great time and a MUST DO! Make sure you request Dennis, he made it so much fun and did a great job answering questions about things on the island!

We very much enjoyed the entire ride from start to finish! Dennis, our guide, was exceptional! In addition to his enthusiasm and desire for us to enjoy our ride, Dennis taught us much history of St. Lucia along with interesting stories of the heritage and culture of the island while riding through the trails to the ocean. Be sure to... More

I've gone on trail rides in many places and even had some of our party get terribly hurt on one, o I am pretty discerning when it comes to hacking out on a vacation. I heard good things about this operation and wasn't disappointed. They had helmets, the horses were in good condition and the equipment was properly maintained. I... More

My 12 year old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed this experience while staying at the Landings Resort. The swim with the horse was great! Just didn't expect the vendors on the beach when we got there, people just trying to make a living. The beach on the Atlantic side of the island where we went was an abandoned resort, because...

I was not to thrilled with this excursion. The horses were well treated, guides were nice but needed to pay more attention. We spent more time walking down to the beach along a hot residential path then on the beach, you barely got to walk slim the beach with the horse; then the guide took you in two at a... More

We pre-booked this excursion prior to our trip to St. Lucia. The location is a bit out of the way, and our taxi driver didn't even know where it was, although he was a little confused in general. The stables are in poor shape and the equipment is worse. As horse owners, My wife and I know what to look... More
