Both of us had never ridden horses before and we had the time of our lives. Don't let a lack of experience deter you from this awesome adventure.
LOVED IT ALL - ESPECIALLY THE RIDE IN THE WATER !!!
I am partly disabled - and was very doubtful. that I could do this... But, they took such good care of me
My daughter is only 13, but an experienced rider. If you are anexperienced rider join the private tour - you will really enjoy it !! If like me take the slo-mo tour.
All the horses are "rescued" the staff are knowledgeable and helpful..
They exude all that is good about Jamaica.
Loved every single minute of it !!! It was by far my favorite part of our trip. I'd do it again and again and again !!!! Loved the guides, the horses were so gentle !!! And the ride along the beach and in the water was incredible!!!! They even fed us yummy local produce and meat pies and lemonade. It was a wonderful experience. Love love loved it!!!
the guides were amazing! On the ride to the beach, the guides were very knowledgeable of the history of the land. Once we got to the beach, one of the guides put a lead rope on the horse our daughter was riding before we went into the ocean, (made me feel safer). Definitely recommended!
The whole family enjoyed our time. They were good in making sure the two children ages 11 and 13 were safe and comfortable. Staff was very nice, would recommend. Consider long shorts, pants, or a towel to sit on.
Fun excursion, guides were great and taking the horses running in the ocean was amazing. The whole family loved it
Very informative guides that taught us a lot about Jamaica history
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. I was slightly nervous beforehand but I needn't have been as the horses are very gentle and the guides very vigilant and reassuring. We were picked up from our villa in Ocho Rios on time, in a lovely air conditioned coach, and when there were given a thorough safety briefing before being led through the forest to the beach. We were a group of just 6. At the beach there were refreshments and a souvenir stall, where the prices were much better than in town. The staff on the beach were lovely and were happy to take photos of us with our cameras. We then got changed and rode through the waves on the horses, which was a fantastic experience. Again I was nervous, but my guide took the reins for me and I rode just behind him. I would not hesitate to recommend this trip or Viator itself, which was very efficient and good value.
It was fantastic! The horses were awesome, the guides informative and friendly! The photos are SO worth buying!!!! We loved every second!!
Tour was great! Desmond was extremely friendly, informative, helpful and professional. Please send thanks to Desmond.
Riding the horses in the ocean was definitely an amazing experience. It was great to see how much the horses love the water. The horses are very gentle and the guides do a great job! We had a great time.
Had a wonderful time! Riding in the water was the best. The guides did a really good job making you feel comfortable as you rode in and out of the water. They even sell a few things and make you feel it's ok if you don't buy. But if you do they don't rip you off and sell it for a fair price.
This ride was perfect. I was ecstatic that our guide was Donny, who we had Five years ago for our honeymoon. This time we brought our son and soon to be daughter-in-law along as they were to be married a few days later. Donny sang Jamaican honeymoon songs to them just as he had to us five years earlier. He was very knowledgable about the plantation we rode on, it's history and the many different trees and plants growing on the land. We had a great time. Riding through the ocean and feeling the horses swim under us was such a thrill. This is the best horseback ride ever. The Viator price is very good too.
