Private Horseback Ride
Private Horseback Ride
Experience the pure, natural beauty of Grand Cayman from horseback. Book this private horseback ride and it will be just your party with your own private guide on this Grand Cayman excursion.
Your Grand Cayman tour begins when you are picked up at the pier and shuttled to the north shore of the island, where your horse awaits. The transfer takes approximately 30 minutes; along the way, you'll savor glimpses of world-famous beaches, and receive a brief history of this gorgeous island.
You will arrive in West Bay, at the tip of the island. Your guide will discuss your level of experience and what you would like to do during your ride. Then, he will set the pace, leading you out along the coast. Walk, trot or canter along the pristine, white-sand beaches of West Bay as the azure waters lap at the feet of your steed and you enjoy the peacefulness of nature at its most relaxing. The exquisite natural backdrop atop your horse makes for a great photo op, so be sure and have your photo taken as a souvenir of one incredible adventure. Your ride lasts approximately 75 minutes, after which you will be returned to your starting point, where you can tell everyone about your awesome experience.
Please Note: The Cayman horse is a smaller breed than you may be used to. The maximum weight the horse can accommodate is 225 pounds. Please do not book this tour if you are over this weight. Guests over the maximum weight will be denied a horse and will not be refunded. The tour requires a minimum of 2 guests to book.

This excursion was the best horseback riding excursion I've ever had! The horses weren't just bored following each other. I have a lot of riding experience and they let me do a little more with my horse, which was fantastic. My husband had no riding experience and they made him feel comfortable too. We had a great time and are so happy we did this excursion!
Decided to do the private tour since I know how to ride. The guide was amazing and went above and beyond to make the ride very memorable. The lovely mare I rode was well mannered aND had a lovely gait. I could not have asked for a better experience
The tour company was great. Excellent service and attention.
For a one-of-a-kind excursion during our honeymoon, we chose the private horseback ride on the beach. While neither of us had ridden horses in decades, the guides made us feel comfortable and gave us a quick refresher on how to ride. It almost was unnecessary, as the horses followed the lead quite naturally and without resistance. The ride was shoreside in a nature preserve, so we didn't encounter anyone else -- just the two of us, our guide, and our horses, with just the sound of the ocean and the horses' hoofs on the sand for the duration of the ride. It was peaceful and exactly what we were looking for.
We took the Private Horseback Ride on Grand Cayman as an excursion off the Brilliance of the Seas in April 2015. The horses appeared to be well cared for, and our guide was very attentive with us, especially at mounting and dismounting. We had one guide for the three of us, although there was other staff. The ride itself was very tame. We walked very slowly along the beach; nothing adventurous or exciting in the ride itself. I would have liked something a little more frisky than the plodding pace we maintained. My horse consistently refused to walk in the surf, but I had to respect her inclination away from the surf. The beach park where we walked is quite beautiful, but the beauty is marred by an excessive amount of beach garbage. If I wanted to walk among beach garbage, I could have stayed in NJ! The horseback ride operators need to pitch in and clean up the beach. The operation also needs a little tightening. Our paperwork said that we would be met at 10am, but the van showed up not much after 9:30am. Others on the same tour had paperwork that showed a 9:45am pickup. Had we not been 30 minutes early at the pick-up spot, we would have missed the van. At the end of the ride, we had to wait far too long for the van to return for the trip back to George Town. This excursion was good fun, but it could be a lot better, too.
