We booked this tour through Victor Bodden tours. We were very pleased with the horses and the ride that took us on a beach ride for part of the time. Horses were very relaxed and easy going.

We arrived early, but Shirkie went out and got the horses ready and got us out! Absolutely amazing ride along the beach and mangroves! We had a fabulous time and Shirkie and Kayla were great! Thank you!

A nice island stable with reasonable horses. Trails are through the tropical forest and down to the beach. They have full moon night rides, but check the schedule on their web site for days available. I would make arrangements in advance, just a day or...More
