Absolutely loved this! I am an experienced rider and my husband is a beginner and we both had an amazing time. We even rode in the rain and it didn't dampen our experience. The guides were extremely friendly and knowledgeable, pointing out native vegetation and wildlife as we rode through the woods. We also loved hearing about the history of the Bahamas. And getting to ride into the ocean was just fabulous! I do recommend arranging your trip directly with the stables instead of the hotel/tour company because they charge extra.

This is well worth the fun in the Sun at Freeport, Grand Bahama 's the guide's were special and made the day enjoyable and to ride in the ocean was very special.

I liked it, but the trail ride before the beach was nothing special. I would have rather just rode on the beach. Wear some sort of shoe that can get wet; you actually go in the ocean to the stir-ups. I had to ride barefooted because I didn't have shoes. The horses were pretty mild mannered and anyone who hasn't ridden will feel comfortable; they follow the horse in front of them.

I'd highly recommend it. We learned a lot about the Bahamas. We were towards the back of the line so Chris was our guide and he was like an encyclopedia! That guy knew a little something about everything!

I'm big into animals and loved how it was not only a horse stable but also a cat rescue of sorts too!! TONSSS of cats, everywhere! We saw 8 of the 41 I believe she said she had!

This was fun, and worth it. I highly suggest you go see Linda. One thing, if you have allergies to cats, take some meds. Her barn has tons that she's rescued, all friendly btw.

But learned a lot on the ride and had a great time doing it. Going in the water for my girlfriend was the best part. She had never been on a horse before and was very comfortable with her horse and the instruction given.
