What to Expect

The whole family had an incredible time on this gorgeous secluded beach ride. We all fell in love with our horses - they all have their own personalities, but great temperaments. Jordan was super friendly, knowledgeable and we all felt very safe with him leading us. We would recommend this to families looking for a unique, memorable experience.

My daughter and I booked a Caribbean swim ride with Spirit of the West and it did not disappoint. Always lovely to support a family owned and operated business, and Jordan was a knowledgeable and personable host. The weather was not entirely compliant (but we were going to get wet anyway) so it did not spoil our afternoon, and by the time we got back along the beach, the sun came out again. Bring carrots, feeding these lovely horses a treat was almost as much fun as the ride, the horses were real characters.
