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!

Great private tour riding horses along the beach, and then bareback in the sea. Paul made everything easy. We hadn't ridden horses in 30 years, but had no problems, even bareback in the water. An very memorable experience.

We chose the private tour because it wasn’t that much more so why not go private. It was a great trip and our guide Jordan made it even better. The horses are calm enough for new riders but you can go faster if you want...More

I think they'll pick you up, but we met them at the ride site. It is not a far drive from 7 mile beach.

Definitely the beach ride and the horses were well trained. The guide was amazing and it is beautiful. I agree with above suggestion, if you e-mail them they get right back to you. Have fun!

I don't believe there is an all inclusive resort on Grand Cayman. However any hotel concierge can book this excursion for you or you can book them directly online.
