What To Expect
Fond d'Or Bay
The riding trail goes through the ancient ruins to the Interpretation Center Museum for a breath taking view of a carved image of a Lion and head of a Tribal Chief. From there it meanders through forest of coconut palms to the Atlantic Ocean, where you can enjoy a thousand feet of sandy beach and see the nesting ground for the Leather back Turtle. The trail continues through the rain forest and features bird watching, crabs, iguanas, and other wildlife. You can also collect some of natures medicine from the wild. Along the way is banana plantations which goes on for miles then into the ruins of the old sugar mill and continues through the Savannah, meadows and mangroves. Don't worry about being dehydrated as throughout the tour we will be serving you with water or freshly picked coconut water right from the nut. Back at the stable the tour won't end without our complimentary refreshments. You will then proceed to the beautiful Dennery falls just 15 minutes away off site.
Admission Ticket Included
Book it! You won’t be disappointed!
We were picked up at our hotel and taken to meet Keith, our guide. We traveled on the horses down the mountain, through a creek, through an old sugar mill, through banana/plantain plantation, through town, through the mangroves all the way to the beach. Along the way, Keith picked fresh guava and other fruits and berries for us to sample as well as things for us to smell to see if we could identify what they were. At the beach, he climbed a coconut tree and cut down coconuts to open for us to drink the water inside. He was so knowledgeable and kind. Upon returning to the stable, he had some fresh fruits waiting on us. We then went to a waterfall and were able to get in. They even provided us with towels to dry off. We were then taken back to our hotel! This was one of the best tours we have ever been on! Book it you won’t be disappointed!
An amazing riding experience with lots of sights
The tour was great. I took a cruise and had to be picked up at the port, the tour provided transportation with a great driver for the 30-40 minute drive across the island to the east coast stables. Once we arrived we were greeted with friendly smiles and told by our driver he would be back when the excursion was over. After filling some waivers and using the bathroom(five minutes) we were up on our horses and heading towards the scenic sites. We saw farms/old mills that were used back during the sugar cane days, we saw several historic sites before getting to the ocean and enjoying a freshly taken off the tree coconut by our tour leader who climbed the tree faster than ive seen monkeys climb. Overall the tour was amazing and I would 100% recommend this tour for anyone who wants a real local tour experience without the formalities and a price of a royal Caribbean booked shore excursion. The only caution I would have is that if you’ve never ridden a horse and/or have high anxiety the paths used were slightly rocky, and could make you fearful that perhaps the horse might slip. Did the horse ever slip no! But my dad whom I was with said he was nervous about 50% of the time, due to the terrain. Hopefully this review helps you decide to book the excursion, you won’t be disappointed
a unique experience
I had a unique experience touring the historical sugar mill site and banana plantation on a lovely horse named Treasure. Our last stop was the beach by the Atlantic ocean. Fresh coconut juice was served along the way. Water and fruits were offered at the end of the trip. Both owner and guide are super nice.
We had an amazing time. Keith the horse whisperer is absolutely amazing with these horses. He can use his voice to get them to do what he wants. There is no kicking the horses in the stomach or other harsh things other tour guides do. Plus this adventure is the real deal through the jungle! Not super commercial and predictable. You learn and see a lot and it's raw and real. I loved every part of this experience.
Just as advertised! We found East Coast Horseback on St. Lucia’s government site for approved COVID tours. Our family was on a cruise and easily included the pickup/drop off from/to port. Taxi driver had a sign with our name at the info stand. Wife and I rode with our two kids 6 and 9 who had never ridden. Our guide Keith has 14 years of experience and had two younger helpers to walk along and ensure the safety of the kids. Adults were able to walk, trot and canter on occasion around ruins, tropical farm fields, through swampy mangroves and along a natural beach. Amazing natural diversity in such a small area. A private tour that made us feel we had the island to ourselves. Super fun.
