Start your horseback riding excursion at either 8:45am or 1:30pm (depending on the option you select), receiving a pickup from your Basseterre or Frigate Bay hotel and continuing to the starting point of your ride.

I enjoyed the tour with my sister and her family. Tour was nice overall. I would only add that a small portable microphone system should be used so that large groups over 5 can all hear as the guide points out different features along the route.
The trip was ok. Probably not worth the price though. It was not the three hours it was advertised, only two, and we were barely in the rainforest at all. The horses were well-mannered and the trails good, the views spectacular. They did assess level of riding and give us a little lesson first, although I have ridden my entire life. We had fun but really wanted to see the rainforest and can't really say we did.
AMAZING! The location we were driven too to start the ride was a little strange, but everything else was wonderful. The horses were well taken care of, the tack was clean, the trail was fun and beautiful, and the guides were very conscious both of each rider's ability and the horse's temperment.
Amazing experience! According to the granddaughter of the owners, who picked us up at our hotel, the company has been in business for over 50 years. Our tour guide, Scott, took the time to describe our surroundings. Our horses were so good and, by their apperance and behavior, are very well taken care of. We saw a family of monkeys who crossed our path. The scenery was spectacular for the entire ride. This was the very first horseback riding trail riding experience for our 7 year-old daughter and she was able to ride independently. The animals were so gentle with her. I highly recommend this tour!
This was an amazing ride into the rain forest. The guides could not be more hospitable. We journied from ocean level up the elevation and were taken into a secluded mountain canyon where a Chuck Norris movie left part of the set. Specatcular.
