This is our second trip visiting Jack's livery and we call it out favorite part of the trip. Our 3 year old talks non stop about the experience! They are accommodating, enthusiastic, and ensure a positive experience. A must do!

Excellent choice for a fun and unique activity on the island. Horses seem to be well cared for and the staff is always pleasant.
