Being-with-horses & Healing with HORSES

Let us give you some INFO:

             

We currently offer our trail-swim combination. This special 2 hour experience is a joyful one for both horses and riders, including first timers who have never spent time with horses. Excellent guidance and instruction makes it possible for all riders to be at ease.

After introducing the horses to our guests (at which point each rider chooses his/her 'team partner' horse), we take everyone through Buccoo Village, past the goat race track and through the wetland mangroves to the beach FOR A LONG BEACH RIDE to the END of Buccoo BAY where we then swim with the horses along the shore .

 

Everybody needs to make their booking in advance due to limited space.

  ---->we go out 5 days a week ---> once a day.

  EITHER 9am - 11am or 3pm - 5pm

Let us know when you like to go out - we will check availability ...!!!

  Thanks!!!

  HEART HUGS FROM the herd in BUCCOO Tobago

    Veronika & Lennon

Have a JOYFUL day!

Little or No experience...yet in the hands of expert handlers: Lennon and Veronica, I received the most life altering experience while spending my Sunday morn with these majestic creatures. The trainers were quite knowledgeable and took their time to give an enlightening crash course to the riders as we spent time getting acquainted with whichever steed had chosen us. They... More

I´ve just been to Tobago for the first time and I did the "Swim Trail" with the horses. It is absolutely amazing how Veronika and Lennon treat their horses. They are part of their family and these horses are so special and that's being said by someone, who was never really a "horse person" before. We got an introduction from... More

I found out about Being with Horses from "Table for Two" and was quite grateful I added it to a birthday/getaway weekend for my wife and I. What impressed me about the space as I got there was that the area was spotless but it seemed as though it was done more for the horses than us visitors. I really... More

A totally different approach to horses and riding, to make even an experienced rider think... also a unique and very enjoyable experience. Totally recommended!

I recently went here with my girlfriend and had a great time. The owners were incredibly friendly, and really took their time with the riders and explained their philosophy and how they work with their horses. It's quite unique from most places i've ever experienced. The riding itself is barefoot, and saddless. There is a small mat and a bridle... More

Me and my boyfriend went to the "swim&trail" without almost any experience of horsebackriding. The two hours we spent with the horses and the very friendly staff was one of the most authentic and unique thing we've ever been apart of. It was totally worth the money! Thank you Veronika, Lennon, Sophia and ofc the horses for making this possible.... More

Great trip to Tobago, highlight was our afternoon being with horses, we were complete novices having never been on horses before, the team at Being With Horses put us at our ease, at the same time showing immense passion for their mission, which goes further than a tourist attraction. We rarely write reviews, however, this does deserve top rating.

My daughter planned this experience as a christmas surprise for me when she knew we were travelling to Tobago. We participated in the experience together and it has created a memory for life. I have always wanted to horse ride in the sea, but this is so so much more because of the ethos created by Lenon and Veronika. The... More

I did the "Swim and Trail" tour with my family and boyfriend. None of us had much experience with horses, yet we all had an excellent time! The highlight of the tour is when you get to swim with the horses in the ocean. I did not expect the horses to gallop as quickly through the water as they did,... More

This is a must do. Veronika gave a great introduction to the story of how she came to work with her horses. Then we were introduced to the horses and went on a ride through Buccoo, through a forest, along the beach, then INTO the ocean! It was thrilling riding with so many horses, many without riders. I'm a bit... More
