My husband and I who are in our late 60's absolutely loved this excursion. It was hot, so we enjoyed the water. Great photos were taken and cd was only $10. Must use cash. Only problem was the snack and beverage. After we ate a morsel and drank a beer we were informed there was a charge. Guides were fantastic! I would do it again.
We had a blast. Everyone were so friendly. The horses looked pretty in good shape. The only thing that I wish could be done a little different is be able to ride more on the beach than the trail.

This was a good excursion, pretty much what you'd expect for a touristy horseback ride. Horses were on skinnier side but seemed fairly well cared for. They just follow each other nose-to-tail, and the guides make you keep them right up against the next horse in line. The trail ride was nice, however the guides don't say a word so you don't really get the ""plantation tour"" we were expecting. The ocean ride is absolutely beautiful and remote, like a postcard. It was great to relax there, we even swam in the ocean on our own for a while and enjoyed a Redstripe or two! (they have a food stand there with typical beer, water, snacks for decent prices.) The ride in the ocean was just okay- it is two people at a time and the guide holds your reins for you so you just sit there holding the horse's mane while they drag your horse through the water for two small circles. It's great for beginners, but not quite what an avid horseperson (like myself) would prefer. Still, a very enjoyable experience and quite a bit of saddle time. Warning: the photographer only takes cash! We ended up using all of the cash we had for the whole trip there since he didn't take credit cards and we really wanted to purchase the CD with our pictures.
A long ride from the ship to the location to ride. Be more fun if we rode the beaches more than we did.
No riding experience required, these horses know the routine!
Enjoyed the horses and instructors.
