The horses look OK here, but they seem to use the same few despite having loads of them in the stables ( from discussing with other people in the hotel). There was just two of us and the guide who we found hard to understand. A lovely slow plod down to the beach, great views etc. Once we were in... More

We've been waiting a while to ride horses along the beach and in the water. The horses did awesome going down the rough, rocky slopes to the beach. It was a bit scary at first. The horses were very well trained. They seem to love being in the water with us too. Each of our horses had personalities of their... More

This was a bucket list experience for sure! The staff at the stable were so welcoming and friendly - including the most beautiful and gracious brother and sister home on Easter break: 10 year old Ocean and his 8 year old sister Radiance! We signed our waivers, were fitted with helmets, had access to the restroom, and mounted our horses... More

Overall this was a fantastic beautiful experience. I went with a group of friends and none of us had ridden horses before so we were a little nervous but our leader was calm and assertive with the horses. The van was late picking us up and it would have been nice to have had a little lesson first, but I... More

The girl who greeted us was very nice and even though our hotel did NOT make a reservation as they had told us they did they accommodated myself and my husband and took us out anyway! We went out on a nice long ride which included riding on the beach! Very Nice calm horses and very nice people! we met... More

I went riding at Trim yesterday. I will never come back and advise everyone to avoid Trim. They did not listen to me as a customer, asked no questions as to my riding ability, provided a 15-year old horse who could barely walk and kept tripping (despite me pointing this out), and I actually watched one of them hit my...

This was an enjoyable day. We had a good trail ride and got to ride bareback in the water. But we were a little disappointed that we were taken down to the beach to souvenir shops and just left there for a while feeling pressured to buy something. It would have been much nicer to ride for a little longer.... More

In all honesty, we had always thought it would be cool to ride horseback on the beach. And I'm glad we can say we did. However, the bad with the good made this an average trip. AJ, our guide was good. Took all the pictures we needed. We just gave him the camera and he was our papparazzi and gave... More

From the looks of it there are other horse riding places on St. Lucia that are better, but this was our only option given to us when we stayed at the Bay Gardens resort. The picked us up from the lobby, it wasn't a far drive even though the beach is on the Atlantic side. I'm no expert but the... More

Dennis was an amazing guide and riding horses into the sea was such a blast! It was such a great time and a MUST DO! Make sure you request Dennis, he made it so much fun and did a great job answering questions about things on the island!
