“Amazing experience”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

From the moment we arrived at Half Moon, we knew we were in paradise. I had ridden the horses there many times, and this time they certainly did not disappoint us. From ridding the horses in the water to fresh coconut our guide had climbed up and pulled down for us to drink and experience, it was A+ all the way.

“You've GOT try the swim with the horses!”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

During my stay at Half Moon I knew I just had to go on the beach ride where you get to swim with the horses. It's such an amazing experience...after a ride to thebeach in the saddle, you then ride your horse bareback into the water which is pretty cool in itself until...they start swimming and you just lie down on them and hold on their mane, amazing, and then you cna even slide down their back and then just hold their tail whilst they keep swimming - such as amazing feeling!
What I also loved about this experience is the quality of the stables, horses and staff that work there...a first class facility even in little montego bay! Trina who runs the equestrian centre is friendly, helpful and and you can really see why this place is so well managed.
I would recommend this to both a completely non-rider and even experienced riders!
Thank you Trina and Mark (my guide)!

“Excellent Experience”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

After reading many reviews on TripAdvisor, I decided to book the beach ride at Half Moon. I must say that Trina made scheduling an appointment very easy. I arrived to see many horses on the grounds. All horses looking very healthy and strong. My guide was Dwayne. I recommend asking for Dwayne as he made my experience perfect. We started off by riding about three laps around the horse stable. We then made our way down a stretch of roadway (within the half moon compound) and down to the beach. We viewed the dolphins within the resort and then made our way beach front. Once on the beach, we dismounted the horses and got into our swimming gear. Dwayne took the saddles off and gave instructions on how to manage the horse while in the water. We then made our way into the ocean and as we were riding in, we saw a family of stingray just swimming in the ocean. Once the horse starts swimming they start to breathe differently and you can really tell they are enjoying themselves. I recommend this excursion to any and everyone interested in trying something different. I also would like to add that Jermaine made sure my wife and daughter enjoyed themselves while I went out on the ride. My daughter enjoyed a pony ride, the petting zoo and ultimately had a great time. The staff is great!
