One of the highlights of my holiday. I hadn't ridden in such a long time but my horse Star gave me such a relaxed ride I soon settled into the hack. The horses have incredible stamina and well practised trekking through the hilly areas and beaches. The guides were lovely, look after their horses and yourselves. You do get to... More

My daughter and I "ran away" for the day Ocean Echo Stables was our first stop. What a beautiful way to start the day. The experience was amazing, exposing us to never before seen spots in Barbados. The horses are also clearly loved and cared-for, with such gentle spirits; and our guide Inity shared loads of valuable information with us.... More

Amazing ride through stunning scenery down to the beach and into the water. So emotional I cried! Fantastic guides, beautiful well cared for horses and even poetry on the way back. An experience I will never forget and would thoroughly recommend.

I went there for my birthday this year and it was one of the best things I've done for my birthday! The horses were very responsive and so chilled out, it was entertaining and relaxing. They're in no rush, which is great for taking in the beauty of the country. I even got a piece of poetry while on the... More

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. From... More

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
