Attraction details
Owner description: Hooves is a family owned attraction in operation for over 20 years, committed to offering our guests a unique experience on horseback. Members of our staff have been with us for more than fourteen years, and are very experienced, and able to give you the best of care. Many of our horses are rescued and brought back to good health, happy to take you into the sea. We are located in St Ann's Bay on the north coast of Jamaica near to Ocho Rios hotels and cruise ship pier. Guests also come on special tours from the cruise shop pier in Falmouth which provides an opportunity to see other attractions au route. Located on a World Heritage Site and sanctioned by The Jamaica National Heritage Trust and the Jamaica Tourist Board we are humbled by the task we have to provide our guests with accurate information on well trained horses with modern equipment for a safe and wonderful experience. Hooves has many return guests, some who have come on our Honeymoon ride, returning years later with their children. Often we have guests asking for particular horses and guides and when asked if they had been with us before, they reply "Oh a friend recommended you" Trip Advisor has been a wonderful help to us with the many kind comments made, so please remember to add to those. We are continually striving to improve our service and you comments are taken seriously.

We were just here Dec 2017. I came to Jamaica to swim with the horses. It was amazing.....so fun!!! Would highly recommend. We did a 2 person private ride, very reasonably priced and great horses and guide.

I had a great ride on Skipper with Derrick as my guide. I was surprised to learn so much history on the tour. Derrick even took my GoPro to record my ride for me and get some great photos! The horses seem well cared for and ride well - the majority being rescues. I am a novice rider who has never ridden an English saddle and I felt comfortable. Nothing describes when your horse takes off in the ocean! The beach is private and beautiful. If you are looking for a unique excursion - look no further! Also - it was the cleanest port-a-potty I have ever seen. I was a bit nervous about changing in a port-a-potty in Jamaica - but it was cleaner than more restrooms in the US.

Thank Casey C
