St Lucia best kept secret
, Nov 2021
Just book it I promise you won’t regret it. Firstly and most importantly the horses- they were so well cared for, looked healthy and were so excited to get into the water. The guides were amazing and so accommodating at helping me when nervous, taking photo ans ensuring we and the horses were having a good time. I would book this again in a heart beat 😍 thank you Sandy hoofs

Hey Paul, Thanks so much for the great review! I really like your heading "Super Chilled". We aim to keep that relaxed island vibe throughout while always being safe. So glad you enjoyed your experience with us. 🐴🌴
100% recommend

Brilliant! Chilled out people completely unfazed by us turning up late due to our taxi not arriving (sorry about that again). Lovely set up and, as far as I can tell, extremely competent and knowledgeable horsemanship with horses that looked pretty happy, or as happy as a horse can look anyway. Not only did we get a private, relaxing horse "ride" (a plod really as neither of us are horse riders!) but so much more - a chance for a dip in the Atlantic, a fresh coconut daringly cut from a tree for us, a chance to pet the dogs, a foal ambling along behind us and a really great chat with some lovely people. Such a nice way to end our honeymoon. Thank you.
Would definitely book again with them

Everybody was so nice and have you loads of time to interact/ride/take pics with the horses. I especially want to shout out Josh and Al who were my favorite as they made our experience amazing and took some great pics of us. Would definitely recommend Sandy Hoofs and the $5 dollar beach to everyone.
Best Experience Ever

Everyone was nice and welcoming. This was my first time going horseback riding and they definitely made it an amazing experience. Tevin was a great tour guide. Teflon was such a nice horse. I really enjoyed the tour. I recommend anyone looking for an awesome horseback riding tour in St. Lucia, definitely go with Sandy Hoofs.
Amazing horse riding trip

Had an amazing horse riding trip with Sandy Hoofs. The staff were so friendly and the horses really well cared for. We got to ride into the sea with the horses as well which was really special. Highly recommend Sandy hoofs stables.
Highly recommended for real horseback excursion
, Aug 2021
I absolutely loved this excursion!!! The tour guide were so informative and answered any questions me and my guest had about the island. I used my driver at my villa to drop me off because the directions were not too clear as there is a stable down the road with horses that stay at the stable to ride and i was a bit confused as to which one it was that i paid for. There honestly was no waiting time when i arrived is when we started. Highly suggested to wear light pants or leggings on the excursion as the horses do rub up against each other when riding as well as walk very close to trees and bushes. Besides location i have nothing to complain about and was well worth the money as the experience was truly amazing!
Best Horseback Riding in St. Lucia!!

Cheers to new adventures

This experience was an incredible adventure with the most beautiful views I’ve ever seen. Our tour guide Stefano was amazing, seeing his bond with the horses allowed us to feel secured and safe. He shared his knowledge and educated us which I appreciated. He gabe is confidence and allowed us to bond with the horses and create some beautiful moments. This experience was everything to us. From riding the beautiful horses, to the most incredible views, to drinking coconut water out of a coconut, swimming in the Atlantic and of course I can’t forget the dogs! We loved how the dogs came along with us and to see how they interact with the horses is so beautiful. Thank you stefano for making my birthday and this experience all that special. I highly recommend this tour.
