Hi, Thank you for this lovely review! It makes us happy to read how much you enjoyed it and your guide. Soulji is an excellent worker and person. Those few horses ended up being rescues because by the time we got them they ended up having bad legs, so they could not be used on tours. Since we already had... More

We took her eight-year-old daughter horseback riding for the first time. It was a great day. Not a lot of coaching if you've never ridden before, but it was still good. The tour itself is about 2 hours on a horse in full sun so where your suntan lotion. Lots of cool things to see along the way and the... More

Hi Gina, Thank you for taking the time to do this review. Before you all head out the guides instruct you how to guide the horse. Thankfully not much more coaching is needed because they follow each other in a single file. Thank you for doing our tour, we're glad you had a great day and hope that you enjoyed... More

I went on horseback tour with my six year old daughter. The guides Schootchy and Beans were fabulous! Scenic ride through rural Jamaica and then onto the gorgeous beach! We even swam in the ocean with the horses! My daughter LOVED it and kept asking to do it again. We would have if we had more time in Jamaica. Highly... More

We were there Oct 17, 2016 and had a great day! The horses were well mannered and well trained. My horse knew where she was going and even went to the tree when we arrived at the swimming area. Lord Byron and Scoochie were a blast! We could not have asked for better guides. I was not sure about going... More

I went with a group of 5 friends. We made reservations one day ahead of time and received email confirmation for the excursion.

This is a very nice stable for riding horses. The horses are gentle and well trained. This is a nose to tail ride. Birdie was well behaved and knew when she heard the guide whistle to move it along. The trail ride was long enough to say you rode horses. They guides were friendly and helpful. The swimming with the... More

Good Afternoon, Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed it and Birdie. Don't worry, the horses are not in any pain when they do the swim, as you could see it's only in a small cove. That groan they make is how they breathe when they are swimming because of the water pressure. If they disliked... More

I was on my first cruise, and we had researched many, many different excursions for Jamaica port stop in Falmouth for many months. I have always wanted to go horseback riding, so seeing it was available, close to our port, and had an added swim in the ocean on horseback, there was no question I wanted to try. We were... More
