We went on the trip with Bano when we were on our honeymoon. Bano was very nice and the tour was overall good. Just a heads up to people that may be traveling with families. This tour is very different from others. The local town you go through is nothing like the states, and if you are not used to... More

I would highly recommend these guys. Just go into it, remembering, Its not what you will encounter in the States. The equipment is a little more worn that what we're used to, but it was a BLAST and VERY safe. Horses were super also, and they gave us a real local tour. Beach riding, around town, Swimming on horseback, which... More

We've just returned from a family holiday in St. Lucia and this was one of the high points of the trip. Bano's horses are very well cared for and well schooled. Bano himself, and his lads, are considerate and knowledgeable and especially attentive to non-riders (five out of six in our group). Bano is a good bloke and great company.... More

I didn't think we would like horseback riding as we are not horse people, but we both enjoyed the beach portion so much it made the ride to and from the beach worth it. Some of the horses tried to bite at each other and other riders and the staff had their hands full but they managed to make sure... More

I went to St. Lucia with a friend in January. My friend wasn't into horseback riding so I planned to go by myself. At the last minute after reading reviews, I cancelled my reservations with Trim's Stables and called Bano. He was able to accomodate my request to go riding for 4 hours that same day. It ended up just... More

We and me sweetie was staying at the Sandals Grand in St. Lucia. While on the beach talking to other visitors asking them what type of things they did and almost everyone said you must go horseback riding with magic man and Bano. So we did. I must say they was right. These guys are St. Lucia at its best.... More

My wife and I really enjoyed and appreciated the hospitality that Bono and Magic man offered to us. These guys represent everything we loved about the people in St. Lucia, truly no pressure no problems. We would definitely recommend taking their tour. We look forward to our return to St. Lucia and we will definitely book a tour with them!!!

Riding horses on the beach - what a dream. The place seems a little "off the beaten path" but trust me - you will love it!
