One of the most unique ways to experience Grand Cayman! Trek along the edge of the Caribbean Sea atop one of our magnificent beauties! Enjoy a lazy walk as the surf rolls in and out at the feet of your horse. For the more adventurous, feel the wind in your hair as you canter along the white sand beach. Try something completely out of the ordinary with the swim ride - hold on tight as your horse is steered into the cool and refreshing waters of the Caribbean for a wonderful swim.The true romantics can see the softer side of Cayman with the moonlit ride during the full moon. Guided only by the natural instincts of your horse, enjoy the peaceful nirvana of paradise where the modern world is far and away!Whatever your choice, Spirit of the West delivers premium service with true Caymanian hospitality. Each ride is an experience of a lifetime and every rider feels like they have done something they will never forget!

My mother in law and I went out with Jordan, who was super friendly, a native of the island, and very knowledgeable. I am an experienced rider, and my MIL had never ridden, and we both had a great time. She sat on the beach while Jordan and I took the horses for a swim. I will say that this... More

We had a wonderful evening ride during our Spring Break in Grand Cayman. My kids (age 10 and 12) loved it! We did the private ride which was very nice. Paul was our guide and he was great. We liked that transportation from our condo was included. This turned out to be the highlight of a really great trip.

Great ride along the beach! Please remember your sunscreen and a hat would be a good idea. The horses were very well trained.

This was not what had we hoped for and had expected, particularly given the cost and the generally positive reviews we have read. It got off to a bad start as our guide was 30 minutes late.... No apology was given. We were then made to stand in the boiling midday heat for 20 minutes while another group of riders... More

We usually do the standard horseback ride on travels, and this is the best yet. Horses were well kept guides were friendly and knowledgeable, beaches were pristine and empty of tourists. The swimming part made it more than just a 'horseback ride' warm waters, the change in horses breathing, riding bareback, guide did a backflip into the water. Make sure... More

An amazing experience with three of my kids (12,13 and 17)! Perry was a terrific guide, fun but cautious to stay within our riding abilities. Honestly, picture perfect experience.

This was one of the best rides I've been on during a vacation. The route is along a secluded stretch of beach, a very relaxing place to ride and enjoy the ocean view. Our guide was Jordan, the owner's son (I love the fact that this is a family run business) so he had a lot of interesting stories about... More

I was on a cruise and Grand Cayman was one of the stops. We booked this tour without doing any research on it, but it turned out amazing! First, the horses looked very healthy and happy. The tour guide, who was also the owner, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We encountered a family on the beach ad the young girl... More
