What You Can Expect

St Kitts Rainforest Horseback Riding Tour

Enjoy beautiful scenery in St Kitts

Get a taste for the rugged but beautiful backcountry of Saint Kitts during this easy 3.5-hour horseback riding adventure. Your ride will allow you the chance to experience the island's largely-unspoiled interior, journeying past sugarcane fields, crystal-clear freshwater pools and diverse plant life along the way.

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. Saddle up on your ride and head out into Saint Kitts' beautiful interior, following your guide along a series of gentle, sloping trails. During your ride you'll traverse the ruins of an old sugarcane mill, and enjoy unspoiled views of the island's majestic hillsides, before entering its dense rainforest.

Dismount for break at a beautiful freshwater pool, where you can cool off your feet with a soak. Then listen as your guide shares some details about the forest's many varieties of plant life, including wild sage, bamboo and the "flamboyant," a species known as the national flower of Saint Kitts and Nevis. You're also likely to encounter fruit plants bearing mangoes and pineapples.

Finish your horseback ride by cooling off with a complimentary refreshment and enjoying a return trip back to your hotel.

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.

It was a beautiful day to ride through the rain forest. I was glad we went on the morning ride and not in the afternoon. It would have been too HOT!

My complaint was that its no Rainforest, its more of riding trails.

These are the gentlest horses we've come across. Nice views of the island before heading into the forest. Our guide wasn't very engaging however.

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.

if I had known this was totally in in the rainforest, would not have scheduled. Was hoping for some "on the beach" horseriding. The young man that lead us on the tour seemed to be more interested in making sure we were going to tip him well after the ride. The horses would not respond to us, only to the leader's voice. Very tiring.
