Really good family experience

This was our second horseback riding tour and it was definitely worth the money. The kids 17 and 12 had the most fun. Riding through the ocean was a thrilling experience. The guides made it fun and safe. Big up CJ, Mario and Marcel.
Great experience riding into the ocean

I really enjoyed riding a horse into the ocean and getting splashed while it's trotting. Also, I totally missed my ride and had to go after the groups were done for the day and they still accommodated me and my husband, which I really appreciate. The tour guide was entertaining and knowledgeable. He found some allspice leaves for us to smell. He also took pictures and a video for us, and got some fun shots, which I was grateful for.
An extraordinary experience

An experience everyone should have. Riging horses through the ocean is an experience you will forever remember. The tour guides are amazing and full of life. They are passionate about the plantation and their heritage.

This by far was one of my favorite tours. I conquered my fear of horses. The tour guides were very knowledgeable about the sites and scenes we passed. We sang along the way. When we made it to the beach, we took a rest and then mounted our horses and took them out into the sea! Beautiful Experience!

I took this ride Dec 11 morning which was my birthday. We had a guided tour guide that made me feel very comfortable which was my first time in about 25 years riding. We went on a path to the beach and then rest, and drank lemonade. After the horses rest, we went into the ocean with me on it...wow..what a birthday morning experience. I have never been in the ocean on a horse, which the water came about midway to my thigh. A must do excursion.

Amazing experience. With being in standardbred race horse business, everyone asked why do this? It's a once in a lifetime experience. Ride thru plantation with our guide CJ Crazy Jamaican was interesting to say the least. Then the water experience was the best. Thanks CJ for memorable ride!!! A must do

I love horseback riding but had never taken a horse into the ocean, so this was a must-do. One really cool thing about Hooves is that the horses are all rescued from racetracks, which I thought was great. They are trained very well, so all experience levels are welcomed they know how to match you with a good horse. We rode through the plantation and learned a lot about Jamaica's history. When we got to the beach, we had a brief break for some homemade limeade and shared some Jamaican food anything beyond the small sample is an additional cost, so make sure to bring extra money if that's something you will want! The highlight was definitely taking the horses into the ocean although germaphobes beware, they do go to the bathroom while you are in the water! I love being able to go a bit faster on the horse, so running through the ocean was right up my alley. Definitely an amazing experience! They also have a photographer on site. She was incredibly kind and the only reasonable photographer I've ever met on a vacation. We purchased a package where we received three pictures for 10. To me, it was worth it because it's very difficult to get a good selfie of yourself on a horse! The one thing I would change was the wait time to go back - I understand we needed to give the horses a break but we seemed to stand around on the beach for quite a long time before we headed back to the ranch. A big shoutout to the guide who rode in the back with us - his name was something like Nick but he also went by CJ - crazy Jamaican! He filled us in on fun Jamaican facts and even took some additional photos for us on my phone.

My daughter and I had a brilliant time. We had horses, April and Monday, and our guide was CJ Crazy Jamaican. The ride in the sea was exhilarating! I was pleased to find out that the operator uses rescued race horses. We would definitely do this again.

It was like a private excursion. The driver turned up at the hotel on time and after about a 20 minute ride I was at Hooves. After some forms and a safety briefing I was off on my ride through the plantation. My guide stopped to tell me about the history and he shared information about the trees and plants. Then we entered onto the beach. The horses got some rest and I had a cool cup of juice very nice indeed. We headed out into the water and the horses were amazing. We headed back into shore for another short break and then along the beach back on to the plantation to the starting point. I would definitely recommend and do again. I must look for some photos to add to this post.

The tour was well worth the fee. This whole experience exceeded our expectations. The pick up was right on time and the bus was clean and well airconditioned. The preparation for the ride was efficient and the horses were calm and well managed. But the ride itself was great. A brief trail ride to the beech and a longer than expected ride in the ocean was great. The horses were deep enough to be nearly swimming and water to our chests. Well done heritage. A great couple of hours.
