Chris and Linda were amazing! So nice and knowledgable about Grand Bahama! Truly a unique experience and a must do if you’re traveling to Freeport. This was our first time riding horses and they made us feel so comfortable, we can’t wait to do it again!

We had an amazing time hanging out and riding with Linda and Chris. They made us feel like we were trailriding at home with friends, but with the beauty and exotic landscape of the Bahamas. Their knowledge of the island, equine care, and horsemanship are second to none. Linda's recommendations for other adventures and eateries was extremely helpful, I'd pay for that knowledge. Chris takes all the pictures so you can enjoy your ride and not worry about getting the perfect picture. This is a memory that will last a lifetime.

I had a wonderful ride with Linda and Chris! I have ridden for years and I have always wanted to ride on a beach! I appreciated that they offered helmets! Not all trail riding places do and I always feel safer wearing a helmet! Linda and Chris were so knowledgeable about Freeport and the ecosystems here. The horses are wonderful Andy so well taken care of. I love Linda's training philosophy and the fact that her horses are bred, raised and retired here! They are well loved. They also run a feral cat rescue and the cats are lovingly taken care of. Unfortunately my ride was cut short due to weather, but Linda and Chris left me at the beach with a lovely woman with a straw market stall. Linda wanted to make sure I was safe, while they raced the horses back to the barn. She kept me dry, while I waited for the private bus to pick me up and take me back to the barn. It really was a wonderful experience! I highly recommend Pinetree Stables if you are looking for a great horseback trail ride in The Bahamas.

Our horseback riding eco-tour was the highlight of our recent trip to Freeport. Linda and Chris are so very knowledgeable about the plants and topography, history and culture of Grand Bahama Island. We learned so much during our two hour ride. Linda and Chris' love for their animals (horses, cats and dogs) is evident and appreciated since I'm an animal lover myself. Other reviewers have commented on the cost but we thought it was well worth the money. It was a full two-hour tour with a lot of information and only two of us, so basically, it was a personal tour. The photos that Chris took were awesome and captured our pleasant experience. We got them within an hour of the completion of our tour. Transportation is provided with the fee. I have no hesitation recommending this activity while in Freeport!

Overall this was a great experience. Linda and Chris were nice and shared lots of information. Horses and cats were awesome and the beach was beyond beautiful. They took a lot of pictures which was great! Didn't like that we had to wear helmets even though we had some experience and we barely went into the water but still a great ride.
