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!

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.

We opted for the private Caribbean Sea Swim ride and it was truly exceptional. I rode Sweet Ayesha and my boyfriend rode John Patrick. They were very calm and sweet horses. Our guide was incredibly knowledgable and prioritized our... More

My daughters and I are very experienced riders and wanted to try the beach ride and swim. Not only was our ship late, and Donovan waited an hour for us, he is so knowledgeable about local history and government that my economist daughter had fascinating conversation with him. I learned a lot about island history and government as well. Jordan... More

Horseback riding in crystal clear Caribbean water is a completely unique experience, even for those who ride regularly. We did a private ride with Jordan and it was worth every penny and more.

Had a wonderful ride along the beach and into the ocean. The guide was friendly and talkative about the island as well as the horses. Felt comfortable on the horses. We would do it again and highly recommend them.
