One of the most unique ways to experience Grand Cayman! Trek along the edge of the Caribbean Sea atop one of our magnificent beauties! Enjoy a lazy walk as the surf rolls in and out at the feet of your horse. For the more adventurous, feel the wind in your hair as you canter along the white sand beach. Try something completely out of the ordinary with the swim ride - hold on tight as your horse is steered into the cool and refreshing waters of the Caribbean for a wonderful swim.The true romantics can see the softer side of Cayman with the moonlit ride during the full moon. Guided only by the natural instincts of your horse, enjoy the peaceful nirvana of paradise where the modern world is far and away!Whatever your choice, Spirit of the West delivers premium service with true Caymanian hospitality. Each ride is an experience of a lifetime and every rider feels like they have done something they will never forget!

It was a great/fun experience. Very relaxing. Horses are well trained and very gentle/safe. The ride was through a more remote part of the beach away from all the main tourist attractions. Highly recommend especially as a quiet family activity.

I don't believe there is an all inclusive resort on Grand Cayman. However any hotel concierge can book this excursion for you or you can book them directly online.

The swim ride is approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes, depending on the # of riders on that particular tour.
