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.

“Great ride”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We had a nice guide and a small group which made the ride very personable. They even pick you up for a small fee from your resort. The horses were very friendly.

“Great Fun!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

What an amazing experience! Neither my 6 year old son nor I had ever ridden a horse, but the staff matched us with friendly, gentle little guys. The beach we rode along was practically deserted and certainly the most beautiful I've ever seen.

“Must do!!!!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Amazing. You are missing a real treat if you don't do this. The people are amazing, concerned for each rider and horse and make certain the experience is something you remember. Riding a horse into the beach is something very unique to experience. By far - the best value on the island.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We just got back from T&C and one of the highlights of our trip was Provo Ponies! We had a great ride and the guides were lovely, they took loads of photos for us too.

We rode Turtle, Spirit, Diamond and Rapido all were great rides...even though Spirit was in a bit of a mood and tried to bite any horse that came near!

I would highly recommend Provo Ponies!

“Awesome experience!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

They picked us up on time at the resort for just an extra $10/person charge which is very reasonable for the area. They reviewed our riding experience and picked our horses and provided us individualized instruction along with tips and tricks for handling our individual horse based on their temperament. Then we were off riding down the road and along a sandy trail and quickly to the beach and in the water! They allowed us to trot and canter if we were comfortable and if they observed that we were good enough to do so and be safe! They took our cameras and got lots of pics of us riding. All around a very professional and knowledgeable staff. The horses were all obviously well taken care of, too. Would recommend to everyone and would definitely do this again when in Turks and Caicos.
