My Wife and i booked the Heritage Riding tour on a Saturday morning. We rented a car so Samantha emailed directions the night before. Once we arrived, Samantha greeted us with juice and we were off shortly. The ride was amazing and Rico is incredibly knowledgeable and fun. We rode through farms and fields then down along the beach.

We had a really good, typically laid back and yet at times very energetic ride through beautiful scenery, into the sea and galloping along the beach and in land! Rico was a great guide, kept a close eye on us for a while and then when he realised we could ride he let us have some excellent fun :-)

I arranged this trip with Samantha before I travelled. Her communication was great and I was picked up from the my hotel the morning of my ride. I was the only one to hack out the day I went which was amazing. When I was looking who to book with, Ocean Echo Stables stuck out because they will try and... More

The Hotel made the booking for us. Samantha picked us up from the other side of the island so we didn't have to get a taxi. Horses were all ready saddled up so we could get straight on. Hardhats were provided. This is a great place for people of any ability. The guides are happy to put people on a... More

This activity is worth every second and penny because it was the best way to explore the land while getting educated on the history of the Country and specifically the area you are exploring on the horse. Bernard was an awesome and entertaining guide. He was able to identify various plant species and their beneficial usage and did a fair... More

Really impressed with this stables and the people running it. We went in Aug 14 and we are looking forward to coming back to Barbados in just over a week and planning on returning to Ocean Echo as the stables and horses were clearly well cared for. Had a lovely ride with my 2 daughters down to the beach and... More

This is an amazing tour that is not your average commercial tour. You will meet a family of people who are down to earth. They love and respect nature, themselves, and you. The horses here are strong, healthy, and run free. I met Samantha who transported me from my hotel on the Southside of the island to the East coast... More
