Overview
More
Hooves is a family owned attraction in operation for over 20 years, committed to offering our guests a unique experience on horseback. Members of our staff have been with us for more than fourteen years, and are very experienced, and able to give you the best of care. Many of our horses are rescued and brought back to good health, happy to take you into the sea. We are located in St Ann's Bay on the north coast of Jamaica near to Ocho Rios hotels and cruise ship pier. Guests also come on special tours from the cruise shop pier in Falmouth which provides an opportunity to see other attractions au route. Located on a World Heritage Site and sanctioned by The Jamaica National Heritage Trust and the Jamaica Tourist Board we are humbled by the task we have to provide our guests with accurate information on well trained horses with modern equipment for a safe and wonderful experience. Hooves has many return guests, some who have come on our Honeymoon ride, returning years later with their children. Often we have guests asking for particular horses and guides and when asked if they had been with us before, they reply "Oh a friend recommended you" Trip Advisor has been a wonderful help to us with the many kind comments made, so please remember to add to those. We are continually striving to improve our service and you comments are taken seriously.

I've dreamed of riding a horse in the ocean forever. Rarely does the reality live up to the dream, in this case it did. We did a combo excursion deal. ATV's, horses and ziplines. Did all three in one day and were back at resort...More

Life jackets are available and the horses have their hooves on the bottom so you could stand. The life jacket will bring your head and shoulders above the surface so you should not have a problem. If you do decide to go into... More
