We did the surf and turf and it was amazing. I chose to book the activity with Half Moon instead of going through the excursion offered by the resort we stayed at because of the reviews it got. It was everything we wanted and more. When they say swimming with the horses they mean just that. Our guide, Nikoy, was... More

The absolute best thing I have ever done on a cruise. I am 33 years old and i have been on 7 cruises in the last 4 years. I have scuba dived, and sky dived, and seen Mayan ruins... None of it was as fun as this experience. Our ship was in port for the day, and the staff was... More

My fifteen year old daughter and I went to Half Moon for a mother daughter trip. One of the activities we did was the Turf & Surf ride with the horses, going into deep water. The rider slides off the horse's back and hangs onto their tail while they swim. I have my own horses, and I think this experience... More

We made reservations to go ride/swim with the horses. What a blast. The horses are beautiful, fun but challenging to ride in the water. My 10 year old and I did it with the help of our amazing guide . We rode saddle till we got to the water, then bareback. Once back at the stable, the let my son... More

I just wanted you to know we were very happy with the staff at the Villa (87) The Chief (Carlene) was the chief I wanted. Every thing was delicious and I would recommend her anytime. She was very professional just like I recalled. Not one complaint with the food she prepared. The maid (Junette) was very professional as well and... More

My girlfriend and I found this excursion and were excited as it seemed like it would be different than using a larger company. We were right!! To begin, the ride from our resort was late, and the owner called and arranged a taxi to take us to the equestrian center, and she paid for it. We were very excited when... More

Having only been on a horse once when I was younger, I was a little weary of this adventure. They ask you your level of experience before you meet your horse. Having little to no experience, my horse was tethered to the leader. Our guide was very nice, and patient. When you reach the waters, what an experience (you will... More

We visited Half Moon Equestrian Center in January 2016. We organized our ride by contacting Trina through e-mail. She responded promptly (within a day) and was very easy to work with. We did schedule our ride via e-mail before we arrived in Jamaica just to ensure we had our reservation on the day that worked for us. Trina arranged for... More
