TOP 100 THINGS TO DO in the Turks & Caicos

Horseback ride on the beach

Provo Ponies is a small riding stable 10 minutes drive away from Grace Bay. Horses LOVE the water!

We do two rides a day. 9:30 am and 3:30 pm. All our rides take you down roads through trails to Long Bay Beach where you will be able to ride your horse into the shallow waters off the Caicos Banks. Upon arrival you will sign liability forms, be briefed on safety and given a quick lesson on your horse. Once all riders in the group are up on their horses and tack is adjusted, you will head down the road and through a windy path to beautiful Long Bay Beach.

Your guide will ensure that you capture plenty of pictures if you bring a camera/smart phone. This is not a nose to tail ride where riders are required to follow one another. You will be encouraged to spread out and interact with your horse if you choose to. The most unique part of this ride is riding in the ocean. Our horses LOVE the water.

When you get back to the barn you can give your horse a treat and a cuddle, maybe get yourself an original Provo Ponies Tee-shirt or hat before heading back to your hotel.

Group Ride

Our group horseback ride is perfect for beginner or novice level riders, OR experienced riders who just want to get on a horse and ride on the beach and into the ocean!!! This ride spends 30+ minutes on the beach and in the water. The rest of the ride is through trails and quiet roads. Group rides are never larger than 12 riders with 2 guides accompanying groups larger than 6. Two rides go out daily from Monday to Friday, 9:30am and 3:30pm (3pm during winter months).

Private Ride

Our private ride is a great option for honeymooners, couples or small groups who don’t mind spending the extra $$$ to enjoy a more private experience. This ride spends 30+ minutes on the beach and in the water. The rest of the ride is through trails and quiet roads. A minimum of 2 riders is required for this adventure!!! Private ride guests will arrive at the stable at the same time as group riders; either 9:30am or 3:30pm (3pm during winter hours). You will be put up on your horses first and head out before the group ride with your own guide. A private ride is also a good option for advanced riders if they want to have more opportunity to trot and canter.
