Blaze the Beach.....by Horse?

There aren't too many things in Grand Cayman that I haven't done at least once, but a horse back ride along the beach is one of them. One of the most popular tourist attractions on Grand Cayman is the Spirit of the West horseback beach ride. Spirit of the West has been doing horseback rides since 2004. They offer several different types of rides, which each offer their own unique opportunity. 

The beach ride has the beautiful Caribbean Sea as the backdrop as you stroll along the beautiful beach at the edge of the water. This ride is available at 10:00 AM, 2:00 PM, or 5:00 PM and costs $75 per rider for this 85 minute excursion. If you are looking for a private ride, where you can control your own pace, without anyone else in your group, it would be $90 per rider.


The Caribbean Sea swim adds a refreshing swim to your ride. This popular and exciting ride allows you to ride your horse into the Caribbean Sea for an exhilerating experience. This ride is not for children under the age of 14 and can be quite rigorous. This 105 minute ride costs $125 per rider or $150 per rider for a private ride without anyone else in your group.


Finally, the moonlight stroll is the most romantic option. This night time ride is only available around the full moon, to maximize lighting, so you might not be able to book this one, depending on when you are on the island. This ride will take your breath away as you see your horses reflextion on the sea. You are guided by the light of the moon and the instincts of your horse. The price for this ride is the same as the swim ride.

Located on Barkers Beach, one of the most isolated areas on the entire island, these rides provide you with a peaceful ride without disturbances of the toursist crowd. Spirit of the West tour guides will pick you up and drive you to the location.

If you are looking for an experience you have never tried before, I recommend giving Spirit of the West a visit. Their website is located here for your convenience.
