Provo Ponies is a small horseback riding stable located on the southeast end of the island of Providenciales. We have two guided horseback rides Monday through Friday. Saturdays are reserved for teaching and Sundays are the horses day off. The morning ride is at 9:30am and the afternoon ride at 3:00pm during winter hours, 4:00pm during the summer. We can take all experience levels from 6 years old and up. There is an extra charge if someone must be led.  Everyone rides their own horse or pony, no double riding. We have a 200(ish) pound weight limit. Groups are never more than 12 riders. Private horseback rides are available for an additional fee. Helmets are available and are required for children 17 and under.

We ride our horses and ponies along quiet dirt roads and trails to Long Bay Beach, a 4 mile long secluded beach. We don't do nose to tail type rides. More experienced riders are given the chance to trot or canter if conditions allow it. (We don't canter the horses at high tide when the sand on the waters edge is deep. See the Tide Chart link on the contact page). The shallow waters of the Caicos Banks off Long Bay Beach make it an ideal place to take your horse into the ocean. You can book a one hour ride for $75 per person or a 90 minute ride for $90 per person. We can arrange transportation to and from your hotel for an additional 10$ per person round trip. We recommend wearing long pants and full shoes (sports bras for the ladies and briefs for the men may make your ride more comfortable too!!) If you want to bring a camera we provide fanny packs and will take pictures for you once we arrive at the beach.

Reservations are required. A Visa or Mastercard number is necessary for all reservations, as well as weights and experience levels of all riders in your group so that we can properly assign horses to riders. Please read our table below to see how to evaluate your riding ability. Our cancellation policy is we'll charge 50% if you cancel the day before, and 100% if you cancel the day of the ride. This does not apply if you have a medical emergency or if the ride is cancelled due to bad weather.

Before each ride, we brief groups on saftey, adjust equipment and give basic one on one riding instruction in the arena so that all riders are comfortable and in control before we head out on the trail. Please allow 2-3 hours for the whole excursion from the time you arrive to the time you return to your hotel or Villa. THANKS!!
