|About these ratings|
Sometimes in life you have to choose between time spent in the ocean and time spent horseback riding. Fortunately for Providenciales-bound travelers, this is not one of those times. Several companies in Turks and Caicos — including Provo Ponies and Caicos Corral — offer horseback riding excursions both on land and partially submerged in the sea.
Recent riders say the horses are friendly, warm and love heading into the water up to their belly level. Be sure to wear closed-toe water shoes that won't slip off in the waves. Other travelers recommend passing your camera to the helpful guides who will snap plenty of pictures as proof of your equestrian talents for your friends back home.
At Provo Ponies, hour-long rides cost $75 USD; the price increases to $90 USD for a 90-minute session. The company will also provide transportation to and from Grace Bay hotels for $10 USD per person. Monday through Friday, Provo Ponies offers two guided rides per day (at 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.). During the summer months, the afternoon ride is at 4 p.m.
At Caicos Corral, an 80-minute tour costs $110 to $125 and includes transportation from your hotel. Tours at Caicos Corral take place at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 5 p.m six days a week (usually not on Sundays, but travelers should call in advance to find out which day of the week the horses will be resting).
