Provo Ponies is a small riding stable located on the southeast end of the island of Providenciales. We do two guided rides a day, morning ride at 9:30am and an afternoon ride at 3:30pm during winter hours, 4:30 during the summer. We can take all experience levels from 7 years old and up (if they are younger they must be experienced riders). There is an extra charge if someone must be led. Everyone rides their own horse or pony, no double riding. We have a 200 pound weight limit. Groups are never more than 12 riders. Private rides are available for an additional fee. Helmets are available and are required for children 17 and under.We ride along quiet dirt roads and trails to Long Bay Beach, a 4 mile long beach. We do our best not to do nose to tail type rides, and more experienced riders are given the chance to trot or canter along the beach depending on the tides. The shallow waters of the Caicos Banks off Long Bay make it an ideal place to take your horse into the ocean. You can book a one hour ride or a 90 minute ride. We can arrange for transportation to and from your hotel.Reservations are required. A Visa or Mastercard number is required for all reservations, as well as weights and experience levels of all riders in your group so that we can properly assign horses to riders.We are a fully insured and licensed business in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

We are so glad we chose this to be our first experience horseback riding! The tour guides were very nice and attentive, even taking over 30 pictures of us riding in the water as a couple. Even though it was a cloudy morning, the water was surprisingly warm. We had a group of novice riders, which made for a fun... More

A coworker recommended this to me and told me to book from home rather than through our resort. It was cheaper to do it that way. Plus you are assured of a place if you are booking in advance. As other reviewers have said they were great in matching the person to the right horse. Everyone was so friendly and... More

We went riding and had a blast. We are avid riders and generally don't pay for horseback riding since we do it for free at home. The horses are well taken care of and fat and healthy. They are matched to the riders ability. The guides gave you a quick history of the horse and how to make the most... More

My husband and I stayed at Beaches resort for 16 days on our honeymoon. We wanted to explore the island while we were there and partake in some island activities. After reading many reviews we decided to horseback ride on the beach with Provo Ponies. WHAT AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!! We were picked up with 8 others from our resort and... More

I was considered intermediate and rode Gitana and loved her. Highlight of our trip ! Defiantly wish we did the 90 min... More

We love going horseback riding in the ocean when we're in the islands and the ladies at Provo Ponies made everyone in the group feel great and confident no matter the skill level. Thankfully it was somewhat overcast the day we rode but it was pretty nice without crazy heat. We had a great ride along the southern shore. The... More

What an unbelievable ride, even for a complete novice. Transportation to and from the location was set up in advance, so no scrambling to get a cab was necessary. Our guides Kelly and Caroline were knowledgeable and reassuring and were right along side of us the entire ride. Thanks for a wonderful memory.

This was the most incredible experience. From the beautiful crystal clear water to the well behaved horses. We had many pictures taken of us and they're all incredible. We are not horse riders and this did not seem to matter. He ride to he beach was easy and the ride in the water was even better!! Just incredible. Best part... More
