The only place in the world the horses actually swim

This place is fantastic, the only place in the world you can actually take the horse in the sea deep enough to swim

It was a nice relaxing horseback riding tour to the beach with the added bonus of getting to ride bareback in the ocean. The horses love it and the water was so warm. It was amazing! A gentleman named Jason the designer took pictures for us. Afterward, when we saw how many he took and how great they were, we... More

My wife and I honeymooned on St. Lucia and one of the things we really wanted to do was ride horses on the beach, so we looked around and found Fidel's holiday riding stables. We called and made reservations for a same day ride, when we showed up Fidel was getting the horses ready, he was a very friendly down... More

We arrived on a cruise ship and was pick up at the port on 14/3/16 and taken to the riding stables not far from Castries. Fidel was great and offered us nice gentle horses as my husband had not ridden before. We were taken down onto a quiet beach where we swam with the horses and had a lovely lunch.... More

We visited early February 2016. We we're guided through residential back roads down to a beautiful smaller beach. The horses looked really good to me (a novice). We road Diamond and Handsome. We got a chance to relax and have a drink while they removed the saddles from the horses before we road them into the water. I wish we... More

I was referred to Holiday Riding Stables by a co-worker who had been there on a previous cruise and loved it. After reading the TA reviews, we thought this would be great fun on our cruise stop in St. Lucia. We were picked up at the cruise port by the stable’s driver and taken around the island to the stable.... More

We had 4 great horses, Big Red, Morgan, Diamond and Bob we were fitted with safety hats and off we went. A gentle saunter through the back roads down to the beach,... More

As a rider myself I noticed a few things that I didn't like, the horses hooves are never cleaned, they weren't given a proper cool down, not that I saw anyways. My horse was to old and shouldn't be ridden any longer, with every step his legs felt like they were going to give way. The horses look like they... More
