Attraction details
Owner description: Provo Ponies is a small riding stable located on the southeast end of the island of Providenciales. We do two guided rides a day, morning ride at 9:30am and an afternoon ride at 3:30pm during winter hours, 4:30 during the summer. We can take all experience levels from 7 years old and up (if they are younger they must be experienced riders). There is an extra charge if someone must be led. Everyone rides their own horse or pony, no double riding. We have a 250 pound weight limit. Groups are never more than 12 riders. Private rides are available for an additional fee. Helmets are available and are required for children 17 and under.We ride along quiet dirt roads and trails to Long Bay Beach, a 4 mile long beach. We do our best not to do nose to tail type rides, and more experienced riders are given the chance to trot or canter along the beach depending on the tides. The shallow waters of the Caicos Banks off Long Bay make it an ideal place to take your horse into the ocean. You can book a one hour ride or a 90 minute ride. We can arrange for transportation to and from your hotel.Reservations are required. A Visa or Mastercard number is required for all reservations, as well as weights and experience levels of all riders in your group so that we can properly assign horses to riders.We are a fully insured and licensed business in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

My granddaughter and I rode with a guide along the trails and into the surf! It was our third experience with Provo Ponies. They do a wonderful job matching your riding abilities with the correct horse which makes everyone's day go extremely well!! We will do this again!!!

Amazing staff, very thorough explinations. Staff made sure we were okay the entire time, and took tons of pictures of us in the ocean. Really enjoyed the ocean aspect of the ride. However we did the 90 minute ride, and my only advice would be if you are a beginner like us, you may want to stick with the 60 minutes...your body will not be used to the saddle and abnormal muscle movement! It was much harder work than we expected!

We did thge 90 min riding trip with Provo ponies on the 24th May. Like everyone else said this is a ride of a lifetime. Our horses were very gentle and the guides were outstanding. They took their time to get everyone used to the horses and understand the simple instructions. They also took the photos of our ride. We had more than 30 min ride in the beautiful Turquiose waters with the level of the water up to the chest of the horses. They were very steady, stable and gentle. No one who loves horses or wanting a unique riding experience should miss this ride. We highly recommend this attraction.

I have never been on a horse before, I was a little nervous about this adventure. The staff were very knowledgeable and easy going. They picked out the perfect horse for a first time rider," Thor" he was gentle and knew how to handle a nervous rider. The ride was excellent, spent much of the time in the water, The horses loved it, The staff took pics of me and my friends, The horses are well cared for and beautiful, This is definitely worth the cost.

What a FUN experience! We arrived at the stables by 9:30a where we were greeted by the staff - welcoming AND knowledgeable. Also, totally cool/laid back, YET safety and horse riding experience were big factors in how our horses were chosen and you can feel that the staff (Camille, Kristin, Caroline, Tina and Kelly) take their job(s) seriously, putting us(the guest) first. After saddling up, we left on a trail ride that took us into the ocean! Amazing! And we were free to canter along the beach! The entire ride took 1 1/2 hrs and we were back in time for lunch. Thank you, Provo Ponies!
