PROVO PONIES LTD. ABOUT US
90 MINUTE PRIVATE RIDE $191pp  

Our 90 minute private ride is a great option for honeymooners, couples or small groups who don't mind spending the extra $$$ to enjoy a more private experience. It's also a good option for advanced riders if they want to have more opportunitiy to trot and canter. Just make sure you book a ride close to low tide if you would like to canter. We don't canter on the beach at high tide because the footing is too soft and we don't want the horses to injure their tendons. A minumum of 2 riders is required for this adventure!!! Private ride guests will arrive at the stable at the same time as group riders; either 9:30am (ride departs at 10am) or 3:30pm (ride departs at 4pm), depending on what you choose. You will be put up on your horses first and head out before the group ride with your own guide.

Upon arrival you will be briefed on safety, sign liability forms and get a quick lesson on your horse. Once all riders in your group are up on their horses you will head out along quiet roads and trails to the beautiful Long Bay Beach. At the beach you will ride into the ocean (weather permitting) and along the shoreline for 50+ 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 stay in line. 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. If you have any questions about our operation please read through our FAQ'S

A few things to consider.......Groups with less than 6 people will have one guide. For safety reasons, your guide will cater to the needs of the less experienced riders in your group. Therefore, if you have a group of people with varying degrees of experience, you may want to book a group ride so that you have two guides.....that way the more experienced riders can go for a canter while the second guide stays back with the beginners.

PLEASE ALLOW 2-3 HOURS FOR THIS EXCURSION.

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.

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 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.
