Exclusive Trail and Beach Horseback
Ready to ride? Then head out on this exclusive Ocho Rios Trail and Beach Horseback adventure!
After being picked up at the pier, you will drive to the corral. Saddle up and set out with your trained tour guide for a scenic countryside trail ride with trained guides. Ride through wooded areas, where the Taino Indians used to hunt for food. Learn about the culture of these first islanders - their beliefs, habits and existence - before Columbus landed and the island was colonized under the Spanish flag. Ride through a natural wetland, shaded by almond and coconut trees, and see the excavations carried out by archaeologists, keen to uncover the deep-rooted history of this area.
On arrival at the stretch of deserted beach, you will strip down to your bathing suits, while the saddles are removed from the horses. You will then set out on a bareback horse ride experience in the Caribbean Sea, an experience not to be missed. Total time with the horses is approximately 90 minutes. Time in the water is approximately 10-15 minutes.
The return ride takes you along the deserted beach, where herons and other water birds fish in the shallow waters, through the mangroves, which hide the remains of an 18th- century warehouse, and by an ancient waterwheel which powered the old sugar mill on this former sugar plantation.Please Note: The maximum weight per horse is 240 pounds. Guests weighing more than this will not be allowed to ride and will not be entitled to a refund.

The staff was amazing! First timers on horses and everyone was so patient. They guide you every step and make you feel comfortable. Even had water shoes for my daughter who forgot hers. The photos were an added bonus. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a fun adventure.

This was our favorite excursion even though there was some buttocks discomfort. Loved the clear blue ocean on the beaches of Jamaica. The guides and photographer all did an outstanding job to make this fun and memorable.
