Horseback Riding in the Turks and Caicos Islands
Riding with your partner down a beautiful beach, into the sunset – it is not an unusual dream. And many kids, who might only ever see a horse on the television or YouTube, also long to hop on a horse and ride off for an adventure. On Providenciales there are two wonderful stables where visitors and residents do exactly that. Well mannered, very well kept horses and ponies can be seen trotting down both Long Bay Beach, at the south east end of the island, and along famous Grace Bay Beach in the Bight.
Many of these horses were born and bred in Grand Turk and shipped to Provo. But several were imported from the United States and the Dominican Republic. Two were born right here in Provo, one at each stable. Several were rescued and rehabilitated from unsuitable work in Grand Turk. All are now happily, healthily giving novice and experienced equestrians the ride of a lifetime.
Riders as young as five may be allowed to ride and it is recommended that you wear long pants and closed-toe shoes. Helmets are provided and instruction. Reservations are required.
