60 MINUTE GROUP RIDE $96pp
Our 60 minute group horseback ride is well suited for for beginner or novice level riders, or experienced riders who just want to get on a horse and ride on the beach and into the ocean!!! Group rides are never larger than 12 riders. Groups with 6+ people will always have 2 guides. Two rides go out daily from Monday to Friday, 9:30am and 3:30pm (3pm during winter months). Our rides are first come first serve, so if someone ahead of you has booked a 90 minute ride on your preffered date and time, you must join that ride. If your dates are flexible, we will most likely be able to fit you in for your preferred ride length at some point during your stay if you book in advance.
Upon arrival you will sign liability forms, be briefed on safety and given a quick lesson on your horse. Once all riders in the group are up on their horses you will head out along quiet roads and trails to the beautiful Long Bay Beach. Once there you will ride into the ocean (weather permitting) and along the beach for 30+ minutes before heading back. Your guide will ensure that you capture plenty of pictures if you bring a camera/smart phone. More experienced riders will be given the opportunity to canter on the beach with one of the guides, but only at low tide, so check the TIDE CHART. Beginner/Novice level riders are given the oportunity to trot their horses along the road to the beach. This is NOT a nose to tail ride where riders are required to follow eachother. You will be encouraged to spread out and interact with your horse if you choose to. The most unique part of this ride is riding in the ocean. Our horses LOVE the water. When you get back to the barn you can give your horse a treat and a cuddle, maybe get yourself an original Provo Ponies Tee-shirt or hat before heading back to your hotel or Villa.

A few things to consider.......
AGE REQUIREMENTS: We don't take children under age 7 unless they have had some lessons. Children must be accompanied on the ride by an adult. We will take children age 13 and up without a parent or guardian as long as liability forms are completed before the day of the ride. Helmets are required for anyone under 18.
PLEASE ALLOW 2-3 HOURS FOR THIS EXCURSION.
WEIGHT LIMITS: We only have 4 horses that can carry up to 240 pounds, 3 who can carry up to 180 pounds, 4 who can carry up to 150 pounds, the rest can carry up to 130-140 pounds, but we have a few who have strict weight limits of 100 pounds. So please be honest about your weights when submitting an inquiry. 20 pounds makes a big difference on a horses' back. THANKS!!
WHAT TO BRING: sunscrene, hat, paymet method, cash for tips, medication (if necessary), camera.
WHAT TO WEAR: Lightweight long pants are recommended but not required. Closed toed shoes/reef runners or strapped on sandals are ok. Flip flops are not ideal as they can float off in the ocean.

CANCELLATION POLICY: Once you submit an inquiry, we will email you and request a Visa or Mastercard number to secure your reservation. Your card will not be charged until the day of your ride.
