Heritage Beach Horseback Ride from Ocho Rios

We guarantee that you will enjoy our beach horseback ride. Its the best on the island, this ride combines history with fun and is the only one of its kind in Jamaica. Experience riding through the countryside and then going down to the beach for a ride in the ocean.

You will be greeted by our guides at your cruise ship pier/resort in Ocho Rios, who will take you in a bus or van along the scenic north coast for a 15 minute ride to the stables.

Your tour starts at the stables where you will be given a brief orientation. Then its time to mount up on your horse and visit all the places that we have learnt about, riding by ruins of castles and sugar factories dating back nearly 500 years.

Ride through wooded areas, where the Taino Indians used to hunt for food. Learn about the culture of these first Islanders, their beliefs, habits and existence, before Columbus landed and the island was colonized under the Spanish flag. Ride through a natural wetland, shaded by almond and coconut trees, and see the excavations carried out by archaeologists, keen to uncover the deep rooted history of this area.

On arrival at the beach, refreshments are served in our jungle beach hut, before we strip down to our bathing suits, for a dash through the waves on horseback. For your safety, we keep the saddles on, so you don’t have to worry about staying on!!! Our return ride takes you along the deserted beach, where herons and other water birds fish in the shallow waters. Through the mangroves, which hide the remains of an eighteenth century warehouse, and by an ancient waterwheel which powered the old sugar mill on this former sugar plantation. A history lesson and beach ride in one. After you are finished riding, you will meet your driver at the back of the Great house. He will then take you back to Ocho Rios for some last minute shopping before you return to your cruise ship.
