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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I really enjoyed it. I was impressed that they use rescue horses and only ride each horse once/day. Not only did we enjoy a long ride, but we got to learn all about Columbus and the Spanish (history).
