Spirit of the West was founded in 2004 by Paul & Chelsea Rivers. Though the company was only formed at that time, it was born decades earlier, in the mind of Paul who is an avid horseman.
The name of the company has many meanings for Paul & Chelsea. Many agree that horses have a mostly unbreakable Spirit. Then there is the notion that horses have long been associated with the Old West but coincidentally, Paul was born and raised in West Bay, Grand Cayman where they reside and operate the business with their twin sons and little girl.
Paul has devoted himself to the care and maintenance of horses since he was 6 years old. It has always been his dream to own a company that would allow him to spend all day with these beautiful, graceful creatures. With the encouragement of his friends and his wife, Paul finally laid it all on the line and started the ball rolling.
In addition to trails rides on the most beautiful beaches in the world, Spirit of the West offers shodding services, starting of colts, boarding, problem solving in difficult horses and advanced training.
