My husband and I did a two hour tour with Rico. Hands down, it was the coolest thing we did in Barbados. I ride a horse every few years (on vacation) and certainly did not look like John Wayne in the saddle. Rico was so patient and kind. Great tour through some farmland with outstanding views. Rico was a wealth... More

We loved every minute of our ride with Ocean Echo. The farm is lovely and the horses (ex polo ponies) were in really good condition and obviously well cared for. Bernard was lovely and picked us up from our apartment and drove us out to their lovely farm on the beautiful, rugged east coast. He told us lots about the... More

Had the pleasure to go on the Conset Bay riding tour in February, which is an offer for experienced riders. My horse was spirited but not too much. I always felt safe to take my camera out to snap pictures (they provide fanny packs so you can take stuff with you). We rode across the beautiful onset bay area, rode... More

We enjoyed the 2 hour ride as both Bernard and Rico provided us with great details as to the areas we rode through and entertained us with great personal stories as we rode through the valley and forest and down the beach. The horses - Peace, Royal and Frida were absolutely lovely horses. Loved the fact that Bernard jumped off... More

My family and I wanted to ride horses during our cruise to the Southern Caribbean, but had conflicts during tours on other islands that were organized through the cruise line. I looked on TripAdvisor and chose to book a ride through Ocean Echo Stables based on the reviews I saw. The ship's concierge contacted Bernard at the Stable and arranged... More

Though all of our other excursions were arranged by the cruise line, we had read elsewhere that Barbados was a great island for enjoying horseback riding and wanted to try it. Since it wasn't offered by Princess, we struck out on our own. Samantha made the process fairly easy. Bernard picked us up just outside the port area and provided... More

Really enjoyable ride out with Ocean Echo Stables, thanks to Samantha and out guide Rico. Rode through farm land, forest and down to beach great way to see the countryside, with some stunning views. Horses well looked after and easy to ride, well worth the trip, (with transport provided to and from Speights Town).

We stayed next door to the stables so asked to go for a ride, it was reasonably expensive, although we got a 20 dollar discount as we were staying next door. I can't remember the name of the young man who took us out but he was super friendly and chatty, as were the couple who own the stables. Riding... More

My friend and I were over for a week at the beginning of February and decided to go on a horse ride. We found this place had the best reviews so decided to book for a 1.5 hour ride down to Bath beach. Our lift there and back was so entertaining, our driver (I can't remember the guy's name but...

What a great experience, from the van ride to the stables, horseback riding through the farm, in the woods, and along the beach, to the educational tour back to our drop off location. Everyone at the stables was very friendly and accommodating. Bernard went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. Thanks for the memories.
