What You Can Expect

Heritage Beach Horse Ride

Heritage Beach Horse Ride

Following pickup at your hotel in Ocho Rios or Runaway Bay, board a vehicle for transportation to the stables.

Upon arrival, disembark to meet your expert horse guides. Listen to a short safety briefing and overview of the ride to come, then get fitted for a helmet. The guides will pick a horse for you based on your size and experience level. This adventure is suitable for guests of all levels; both expert and novice riders are welcome. 

Climb onto your gentle, friendly horse and get started down the trail. Follow your guide through the Jamaican countryside, a landscape very different than the beaches of the tourist zone. Along the trail, see sugar plantations and castles that date back nearly five hundred years. 

Arrive at the white sandy beach, where both you and the horses will be happy to cool off. Keep an eye out for local wildlife like herons and other native water fowl fishing in the shallows. Dismount and relax on the shore, or ride your horse directly into the water for a little extra adventure. 

Enjoy a provided refreshment at the conclusion of your 2.5-hour ride, then return to your hotel for drop-off.

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.

This trip was so much fun. There is a short ride from the coral to the ocean, then you get off the horse for a bit where you can do a little shopping. They had a small snack and water for everyone and you could purchase beer and soda. Then you get back on the horses and ride out into the ocean. We were deep enough that the water came up to above my knees on the horse. Then we ran the horse back and forth a few times. The horses were practically swimming, and tired pretty easy, so you could only run them that hard for a little bit. You will get wet on this ride, so dress accordingly. They did have someone there taking pictures for purchase. After we left the ocean, we got off the horses again to let them rest a bit, then after about 20 - 30 minutes, we took a little bit longer ride down the beach, back to the coral. Along the way, the guide pointed out ruins for the early England settlers. All in all, this was a very fun trip that I would definitely do again.

Most amazing experience EVER! We had the beach to ourselevs, was able to purchase some drinks and hang out for however long we wanted to on the beach. The horse running through the water was the best part, although a little scary, it was an amazing experience, and I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting.

The horse ride was fantastic. The staff was very polite and helpful. The guides were knowledgeable and funny. The horses were perfect. My daughter never rode a horse and did the entire ride. The ride in the ocean is a once in a lifetime experience!

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.

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.
