If you're looking for a unique way to experience the white sand beaches of TCI, consider a scenic horseback ride. Suitable for beginners and seasoned equestrians, horseback riding is a popular activity for TCI visitors (past travelers raved about their experiences). One highly recommended company is Provo Ponies, which offers 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.

At Provo Ponies, hour-long rides cost $110; the price increases to $130 for a 90-minute session. The company will also provide transportation to and from Grace Bay hotels for $10 per person. Monday through Friday, Provo Ponies offers two guided rides per day (at 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.). During the winter months, the afternoon ride is at 3 p.m.
