My daughter and I "ran away" for the day Ocean Echo Stables was our first stop. What a beautiful way to start the day. The experience was amazing, exposing us to never before seen spots in Barbados. The horses are also clearly loved and cared-for, with such gentle spirits; and our guide Inity shared loads of valuable information with us.... More

Amazing ride through stunning scenery down to the beach and into the water. So emotional I cried! Fantastic guides, beautiful well cared for horses and even poetry on the way back. An experience I will never forget and would thoroughly recommend.

I went there for my birthday this year and it was one of the best things I've done for my birthday! The horses were very responsive and so chilled out, it was entertaining and relaxing. They're in no rush, which is great for taking in the beauty of the country. I even got a piece of poetry while on the... More

My Wife and i booked the Heritage Riding tour on a Saturday morning. We rented a car so Samantha emailed directions the night before. Once we arrived, Samantha greeted us with juice and we were off shortly. The ride was amazing and Rico is incredibly knowledgeable and fun. We rode through farms and fields then down along the beach. From... More

We had a really good, typically laid back and yet at times very energetic ride through beautiful scenery, into the sea and galloping along the beach and in land! Rico was a great guide, kept a close eye on us for a while and then when he realised we could ride he let us have some excellent fun :-)

I was the only one to hack out the day I went which was amazing. When I was looking who to book with, Ocean Echo Stables stuck out because they will try and... More

The Hotel made the booking for us. Samantha picked us up from the other side of the island so we didn't have to get a taxi. Horses were all ready saddled up so we could get straight on. Hardhats were provided. This is a great place for people of any ability. The guides are happy to put people on a... More

This activity is worth every second and penny because it was the best way to explore the land while getting educated on the history of the Country and specifically the area you are exploring on the horse. Bernard was an awesome and entertaining guide. He was able to identify various plant species and their beneficial usage and did a fair... More
