Horseback Riding

Horseback Riding in Grand Cayman

With trails navigating stretches of white, sandy beaches, that border crystalline, blue water, horseback riding in Cayman is truly an unforgettable experience.

Spirit of the West and Pampered Ponies, both located in West Bay, offer beach and sea swim tours and welcome riders of all abilities.

Riders are taken out to Barker’s National Park, in West Bay, where you are guided along the picturesque and often deserted shoreline of Barker’s beach. Tours last between 1-2 hours and depending on your ability, riders can enjoy long canters or a slower paced trot for those less experienced riders.

For those wanting to enjoy the beauty of a beach ride, as well as a cool and refreshing dip in the sea with their horse to complete the tour, both companies offer the option for a 'sea swim tour'. In addition, Spirit of the West and Pampered Ponies both offer magical moonlight rides on full moon nights. Guided only by the light of the moon, this is an experience you’ll never forget!

Helpful Tip

Don't forget to bring a camera (waterproof for sea rides!), as there will be plenty of opportunities for photos!

Book a ride with Spirit of the West and marvel at the stunning views of the white sandy beach and turquoise waters as you trek along the edge of the Caribbean Sea. All the horses at Spirit of the West are magnificent, gentle creatures that are well looked after and well trained, meaning that even novice riders will feel at ease.
