One of the most unique ways to experience Grand Cayman! Trek along the edge...

One of the most unique ways to experience Grand Cayman! Trek along the edge of the Caribbean Sea atop one of our magnificent beauties! Enjoy a lazy walk as the surf rolls in and out at the feet of your horse. For the more adventurous, feel the wind in your hair as you canter along the white sand beach. Try something completely out of the ordinary with the swim ride - hold on tight as your horse is steered into the cool and refreshing waters of the Caribbean for a wonderful swim.The true romantics can see the softer side of Cayman with the moonlit ride during the full moon. Guided only by the natural instincts of your horse, enjoy the peaceful nirvana of paradise where the modern world is far and away!Whatever your choice, Spirit of the West delivers premium service with true Caymanian hospitality. Each ride is an experience of a lifetime and every rider feels like they have done something they will never forget!

You meet with someone from the company at Papagallo (which is where the asphalt ends and the fun begins) where we were free to use the restroom and see the parrots even though the restaurant wasn't officially open. When the horse trailer arrives you follow them down the dirt road and park along the side of the road near Wild... More

Excellent horseback riding tour and experience. We met the group at Papagallo restaurant on the tip of West End. The meeting location was relatively easy to find and figure out. On the trip my wife and I wore pants and t-shirts, but others wore shorts and were fine. We also wore sandals and I would recommend that. The guides were... More

This was the highlight of our vacation. The horses and guides are wonderful! The tour starts with a ride along the beach where the guide tells you about various things on the island. After about an hour, you stop and the guide takes off the saddles and you ride into the ocean! Be prepared to get wet as I got... More

Donovan, Paul and Jordan are the best!! Spirit of the West is a first class, 5 star business!! From the very beginning when Donovan picked us up at our hotel we knew it was going to be a great adventure. Jordan, our guide was so pleasant and knowledgeable. We felt very safe throughout the entire ride and swim. The horses... More

It was great fun to ride my horse Lady along the beach and then remove the saddle and swim with her in the ocean. Unfortunately, the water was pretty shallow so that most of the water time she was walking and not swimming and I would have preferred more swimming. We signed up for the group ride but were lucky...

Upon arriving in Grand Cayman our taxi driver suggested different things to do while in the Caymans, one of which was riding the horses along the beach. He said there were several companies that offer rides, but Spirit of the West was the best. Several other people reinforced this. So we booked with Spirit of the West and they didn't... More

We had Michael as a guide and the tour was small and personal only being our small group. The weather was amazing and Michael told us about the area and sights.

I had made reservations on Sunday night for a beach horse ride for Wednesday. I booked the sea side ride, private tour for my wife and I. We met Donovan in the parking lot of Pagallelo's restaurant. Donovan took care of the business paperwork, then we followed him in our car a few hundred yards up, and met Jordan. Jordan... More
