Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Located on the southern tip of the tropical island of St. Lucia, Atlantic Shores Riding Stable is the quintessential stop to experience in the Caribbean. Whether you are coming from a cruise ship or island resort, this stable is fit for an adventure for the whole family. Surrounded by thick rainforest and breathtaking ocean views from sea cliffs and secluded beaches, this stable offers tail rides through the pristine countryside. Catering to all skill levels, this stable treats their creole horses with the utmost care and safety is the top concern. Focusing more on smaller groups, you will venture out on horseback to ride on either a 2 hour beach ride or 3 hour country trail. Each ride will take you through gently rolling hills with velvety soft grasses, dramatic and steep sea cliffs towering over turquoise waters, and private beaches where you are free to gallop through the powder-soft sands. If the weather is right, you may even spend some time splashing with your horse in the warm Caribbean waves. You will have plenty of opportunities for photographs while on horseback, and your riding guide will introduce you to the history and culture of this tropical oasis. This part of the island hasn't been touched in centuries, so you can bask in the peace and quiet. Transfers are offered at a price for anyone arriving by cruise ship or from your private resort on the island. Our stable has been awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate Of Excellence Award for 2015 and 2016 for outstanding service as a trusted and reputable tour operator in St.Lucia

“This is a Must Do in St. Lucia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

I took my 11 year old grandaughter on this horse riding trip. What an incredible experience! Max was wonderful, and took good care of us. The views from the cliffs of the ocean are beyond belief. The horses are very well trained.

Group of 8 ranging in age from 8-50 years old all enjoyed our day. The coordinated cruise pier pick-up was seamless and professional. Horseback adventure included awesome views and fun beach time. Everyone we met was kind and helpful. A highlight of our trip!

“Our best experience on the Island! Can't express how much we enjoyed it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2012

My wife and I took the two hour ride, and it was the best experience we had. The ocean bluffs and scenery were like living in a movie or a dream. And then galloping on the beach! Wow!
Our hearts were racing and our souls felt free.
Max's horses are amazing. Strong healthy and in perfect form. Even for a beginner rider the horse was obedient and easy to ride.
We were impressed with the young guys who prepared the horses. They were professional and hard working. Probably around ten years old too.
Max was our guide and he was our friend by the end of the ride. We spoke at length and we appreciated his truth and honesty.
He's an amazing animal lover. We heard and met his new puppies as well as his dog that was a stray and is now a loyal companion on the trails. Max could tell you something about every one of his horses personally. It was amazing to feel his love for what he does and who he works with.
An amazing tour and an amazing time.

“Really fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2011

I booked with Max in January 2008 and our entire group loved it so we signed up again for our upcoming trip this January. We did 5 different excursions on 5 islands during our cruise and this was our favorite. The scenery is amazing, it's well worth it.
