Awesome!

Our cruise ship stopped in Barbados. Bernard picked us up near the pier and brought us to the stable (and brought us back afterwards). We had an amazing ride! Highly recommended!

The pickup transport person was very early picking me up. Like 30 minutes early. I was still getting ready when my resort called my suite about it. I showed my email to the man saying my pickup time was for 9:15am, not 8:35/40am, and he said that was wrong! His disposition and initial meeting was unpleasant. The transport van looked... More

My daughter regularly rides and I have never ridden (and was terrified). Ocean echo stables accommodated us both and we spend an enjoyable hour and a half going down to the beach. My confidence grew as I was encouraged and I ended up wishing I had tried years before. The horses look so healthy and well loved. They are friendly... More

The stables were a bit of a drive from our hotel, but well worth the visit. We did the 1 1/2 hour tour to Bath Beach with Rico. We went on a Saturday morning and it was just us with the guide, which was nice. It was hot in our jeans and closed shoes, but although that is safer, I'm... More

This was a great family day with beautiful views and wonderful guides. Both Bernhardt and Rico were charming, helpful, kind and very knowledgeable. We started on the top of the mountain and took a leisurely ride all the way down to Bath Beach which was delightful. Samantha gave us the best directions we received on our whole trip. Be sure...

My husband and I did a two hour tour with Rico. Hands down, it was the coolest thing we did in Barbados. I ride a horse every few years (on vacation) and certainly did not look like John Wayne in the saddle. Rico was so patient and kind. Great tour through some farmland with outstanding views. Rico was a wealth... More

We loved every minute of our ride with Ocean Echo. The farm is lovely and the horses (ex polo ponies) were in really good condition and obviously well cared for. Bernard was lovely and picked us up from our apartment and drove us out to their lovely farm on the beautiful, rugged east coast. He told us lots about the... More

Had the pleasure to go on the Conset Bay riding tour in February, which is an offer for experienced riders. My horse was spirited but not too much. I always felt safe to take my camera out to snap pictures (they provide fanny packs so you can take stuff with you). We rode across the beautiful onset bay area, rode... More

We enjoyed the 2 hour ride as both Bernard and Rico provided us with great details as to the areas we rode through and entertained us with great personal stories as we rode through the valley and forest and down the beach. The horses - Peace, Royal and Frida were absolutely lovely horses. Loved the fact that Bernard jumped off... More

My family and I wanted to ride horses during our cruise to the Southern Caribbean, but had conflicts during tours on other islands that were organized through the cruise line. I looked on TripAdvisor and chose to book a ride through Ocean Echo Stables based on the reviews I saw. The ship's concierge contacted Bernard at the Stable and arranged... More
