We had such a great time on our 2 hour horseback experience last week! My husband and I went! Personal attention, education on the island, fresh air, ocean, great horses, beauty all around...what more could you ask for!
Horses are treated good and its a treat for them, not a chore to go on this bc they arent doing them over and over again daily like other places.
The pictures they send keep the memory alive!

One of the best horseback riding experiences by far!! This entire experience far exceeded any expectations we had prior to visiting Pinetree Stables. Linda and Chris both went over and above to really teach us about horses, including how to ride but also how to interact with and treat them. They also took the time to tell us all about the land, the history of the area, and the wildlife surrounding the trails we went riding through. They were so very kind, understanding, and knowledgeable. My husband and I would both HIGHLY recommend horseback riding at Pinetree Stables to anyone who wants an amazing experience you will remember for years to come. If we ever venture back to the Bahamas, we definitely plan to visit Pinetree Stables again!

Linda and Christ were so knowledgeable and showed us a lot of the Bahamas during our ride. The horses were so sweet and attentive and the ride was scenic and the destination, a beautiful beach, was well worth it. Could not recommend this experience more.

This was a wonderful experience from start to finish!

When booking, Linda responded to my inquiry right away and we set up a time and a date very easily.

When arriving at the barn, we were greeted by several adorable kitties who were very friendly. It was fun to pet the kitties as Linda and Chris got the horses ready.

The horses are lovely and know their jobs very well. They are beautifully trained and clearly well loved and cared for.

I am an experienced rider, but my boyfriend is not and was apprehensive at first. Chris was extremely helpful and kind and made him feel comfortable on the horse.

The actual ride was incredible - we traveled through a trail where Linda shared a lot of knowledge and history about the ecosystem and much more. We got to ride on the beach and waded into the water on the horses which was an amazing experience. All along the ride, Chris was taking photographs of us which came out great and they were emailed to us shortly after we left. They also provided complimentary water bottles to us.

This was an amazing experience and I would it recommend to anybody - whether you are an equestrian or not. Linda and Chris are great and really experts at what they do.

Wonderful experience! Linda and Chris and so knowledgeable about their horses and their home. The horses are very well loved and cared for. If you’re looking for an activity on Grand Bahama (Freeport), look no further!

Linda and Chris were amazing! They are both so knowledgeable about the beautiful island’s history, ecology, and all things horse related! I loved learning all about the native plants as we strolled past. The trip included amazing views of the islands castle & picture perfect moments on a gorgeous beach. Would definitely go again!

Linda and Chris are two of the friendliest people I met while I was in Freeport. They were both so entertaining. Chris was extremely knowledgeable and did a great job sharing information about the island as we went along our tour. Pretty easy ride for any type of rider. They have a unique connection to their horses and it translates over while you’re riding. Definitely recommend this as a fun activity for anyone to do alone or with their spouse.

We had a fantastic time with Linda and Chris. The tour lasted approximately 2.5 hours traveling through the forest crossing the road into outskirts of the town to the beach and back.

We were educated on the history of the island and city. Additionally, we learned about local insects and vegetation. We even saw endangered butterflies.

The entire experience was absolutely breathtaking and fantastic. We also received many pictures from the tour.

Horses were very well trained. Definitely recommend to anyone who wants a laid back tour with magnificent views and fabulous guides.

Absolutely amazing time! We booked out a ways back which is definitely a recommendation since the guides are professionals and get booked out for the tours they offer. While having some experience with horses, mostly it has been with trail broke horses that mosey about without much “horse-onality”. That is not the case for their horses. They are so fun and full of energy and different preferences. Linda and Chris were very patient with correcting our postures and helping us get in the groove of communicating with our horses. They are very knowledgeable about the island and the ecosystems you get to go through. The negative reviews here really aren’t truthful in the least bit. Chris took so many amazing photos of us and even helped set our horses up on the beach for extra cute photos. They provide all the gear, waters and offer helmets if you choose to wear them. Don’t come if you are expecting some mindless ride where you don’t need to listen and pay attention. Leave your egos behind and listen the Linda and Chris and their instructions and you’ll have a great time. While you’re waiting for the horses they’re are barn cats galore to love on. Stay away if you’re allergic or don’t want cuddles because the kitties love everyone. We would 100% ride with Linda and Chris again. Thank you for making our honeymoon extra special!
