Overall this was a fantastic beautiful experience. I went with a group of friends and none of us had ridden horses before so we were a little nervous but our leader was calm and assertive with the horses. The van was late picking us up and it would have been nice to have had a little lesson first, but I... More

We went out on a nice long ride which included riding on the beach! Very Nice calm horses and very nice people! we met... More

I went riding at Trim yesterday. I will never come back and advise everyone to avoid Trim. They did not listen to me as a customer, asked no questions as to my riding ability, provided a 15-year old horse who could barely walk and kept tripping (despite me pointing this out), and I actually watched one of them hit my...

This was an enjoyable day. We had a good trail ride and got to ride bareback in the water. But we were a little disappointed that we were taken down to the beach to souvenir shops and just left there for a while feeling pressured to buy something. It would have been much nicer to ride for a little longer.... More

In all honesty, we had always thought it would be cool to ride horseback on the beach. And I'm glad we can say we did. However, the bad with the good made this an average trip. AJ, our guide was good. Took all the pictures we needed. We just gave him the camera and he was our papparazzi and gave... More

From the looks of it there are other horse riding places on St. Lucia that are better, but this was our only option given to us when we stayed at the Bay Gardens resort. The picked us up from the lobby, it wasn't a far drive even though the beach is on the Atlantic side. I'm no expert but the... More

Dennis was an amazing guide and riding horses into the sea was such a blast! It was such a great time and a MUST DO! Make sure you request Dennis, he made it so much fun and did a great job answering questions about things on the island!

We very much enjoyed the entire ride from start to finish! Dennis, our guide, was exceptional! In addition to his enthusiasm and desire for us to enjoy our ride, Dennis taught us much history of St. Lucia along with interesting stories of the heritage and culture of the island while riding through the trails to the ocean. Be sure to... More

I've gone on trail rides in many places and even had some of our party get terribly hurt on one, o I am pretty discerning when it comes to hacking out on a vacation. I heard good things about this operation and wasn't disappointed. They had helmets, the horses were in good condition and the equipment was properly maintained. I... More
