Thank you for your review. We appreciate it and are glad that you enjoyed the tour. We know what you mean re the swim. The cove works out well and is safe but we wish that the structure of it could be a little longer. We are seeing what can be done for that part. The photographer does sell individual... More

We booked this excursion through Costco off our Carnival Cruise. Right off the bat, the people at the stables said that that wasn't a good company to book through. They probably don't get as much money or something. The scenery was beautiful, especially at the beach. Two our of the four horses looked healthy but the two that my husband... More

My family did this horseback riding adventure as a shore excursion while on a cruise. There were eight of us and we joined several others for our escorted ride. Our horses were beautiful, and our escorts were fun and knowledgeable. The trail was nice, but not beautiful. We really enjoyed the water horseback riding. They spent a long time with... More

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed it. I promise you that the horses are not struggling to breathe. That moaning sound they make is how they breathe when they swim. A lot of us breathe louder and differently when we exercise, right? If they did not like it then we wouldn't be able to do... More

I booked this tour apart from our cruise, so I was a little nervous. But not to fear, it was an excellent choice. We were picked up and dropped off promptly at our port. The excursion was beautiful. My favorite part was swimming with the horses. Our guide, Beans, was very helpful, especially since I am not an experienced rider.... More

Very nice people running this tour but the horses looked tired and unhealthy. The trail ride is not scenic at all, the only views are the side of the highway and a generally run down residential/farming area. We were expecting a nice trail ride. It was very disappointing. Also, the water experience was just sitting on the horse for about... More

Hi. Thank you for the kind compliment about our staff. Our horses are very healthy so I am sorry that you feel differently about that. They are checked by our Vets and well taken care of. At night they roam freely in our pastures rather than being in a stall. The tour has to pass through the small farming area... More

Really loved the vibe at this stable. It was just calm trotting in the beautiful country side of Braco Trelawny. The horses are very easy to handle, i was a first time rider and the tour guides are very attentive. I had Ras, who allowed us to enjoy the ride with enough space and little chatter.

My Wife and Daughter and I enjoyed a morning here with a private tour. Horses are healthy and in good shape (not always the case in the Caribbean). Our Guide was fun the whole day had an authentic experience feel to it. The ride in the ocean was super fun.
