Really enjoyable ride out with Ocean Echo Stables, thanks to Samantha and out guide Rico. Rode through farm land, forest and down to beach great way to see the countryside, with some stunning views. Horses well looked after and easy to ride, well worth the trip, (with transport provided to and from Speights Town).

We stayed next door to the stables so asked to go for a ride, it was reasonably expensive, although we got a 20 dollar discount as we were staying next door. I can't remember the name of the young man who took us out but he was super friendly and chatty, as were the couple who own the stables. Riding... More

My friend and I were over for a week at the beginning of February and decided to go on a horse ride. We found this place had the best reviews so decided to book for a 1.5 hour ride down to Bath beach. Our lift there and back was so entertaining, our driver (I can't remember the guy's name but...

What a great experience, from the van ride to the stables, horseback riding through the farm, in the woods, and along the beach, to the educational tour back to our drop off location. Everyone at the stables was very friendly and accommodating. Bernard went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. Thanks for the memories.

I would 1000% recommend this place. The horses are lovely, very well trained, the owner (Bernard) is super nice, the people who are working there (Sham) are super friendly, explaining you everything about the island and this area. The beach tour was wonderful. I cant wait to go again, to see this nice people again and to ride this wonderful... More

A unique way to view parts of the island we would not have ordinarily have seen. A rustic and honest stables with enthusiastic forward horses. Speedy for experienced riders or leisurely for the first timer. My husband was taken on a gentle amble, whilst I galloped through the countryside to meet up on the beach for a scenic ride back...

The tour was absolutely amazing, half country half beach. Rico is a very knowledgeable tour guide, he provided a lot of information about the island. Rico is also a very good photographer! Many thanks! From Dora and Tom (Boots)

I must say that this was the first time that I've ever ridden a horse and it was a great experience. We were picked up directly from our hotel in the St. Lawerence Gap area. Once at the stables they went over everything and introduced us to our horses. I had the opportunity to ride Star and he was great.... More

What a great ride. Great company. Great horses. Great guide Rico😀. Horses look great and were well behaved and not hard in the mouth. Great way to view the East side of the island.

One of the highlights of my holiday. I hadn't ridden in such a long time but my horse Star gave me such a relaxed ride I soon settled into the hack. The horses have incredible stamina and well practised trekking through the hilly areas and beaches. The guides were lovely, look after their horses and yourselves. You do get to... More
