Know This First

Stuff to know before you ride

Age Requirements

Group Beach Rides start at 8 yrs old. Group Swim Rides start at 14 yrs old. Private tours are slightly more flexible, so ask us about your kids.

Weight Limit

Most of our horses can carry up to 225lbs, but we do have a few that carry up to 250lbs.

Riding Attire

Cool, comfortable clothes are recommended. Hats and sunblock are advisable. Bring comfortable shoes – flip flops or slip-on shoes are fine. Wear swimsuits under riding attire if doing the Swim Ride.


At this time, we do not provide a shuttle service, however, we can recommend taxi services or, if you have rented a vehicle, we will provide detailed driving directions.

Horses can swim?

Yes, very well actually. Our swim rides go into depth intervals of 6′-7′ of water. Horses grunt. It’s ok – they really do love the water!

Experienced Rider Options

Book a Private Ride and the guide will tailor the tour to your experience levels. We allow cantering at intervals, depending on the terrain, traffic and your riding experience – all at the guide’s discretion.

Elena Maria TAwesome birthday tour!

My bf and I had the most amazing time on this tour and Jordan was the best host possible! Clearly stated what needed to be done and assisted all the way. I had the best birthday morning on this tour and the horses were awesome! Thank you!

Maureen B.Beach Treat

My daughter and I booked a Caribbean swim ride with Spirit of the West and it did not disappoint. Always lovely to support a family owned and operated business, Jordan was a knowledgeable and personable host. The weather was not entirely compliant (but we were going to get wet anyway) so it did not spoil our afternoon, and by the time we got back along the beach, the sun came out again. Bring carrots, feeding these lovely horses a treat was almost as much fun as the ride, the hoses were real characters.

Fiona KFantastic experience!

What a fantastic experience! Very professional and well organised. Lovely guy put us at our ease as we rode along side the beautiful turquoise water and then bare back into the water with the swimming horses.

WayneMagical Family Ride!

The whole family had an incredible time on this gorgeous secluded beach ride. We all fell in love with our horses - they all have their own personalities, but great temperaments. Jordan was super friendly, knowledgeable and we all felt very safe with him leading us. We would recommend this to families looking for a unique, memorable experience. Thank you Lady, Cayman Time, Diamond, Mischief, Aurora and Jordan!

Melissa WAwesome Sauce

We had a fantastic morning ride out, wonderful clear blue skies, smooth water and of course the sweetest horses you will ever encounter!! Our tour guide was absolutely fabulous, he was knowledgeable about what's happening on all 3 islands and brought such great energy that I strongly recommend having him on my rides going forward. If you are ever in the Cayman Islands, reach out to Spirit of the West and ask for Jordan.
