    A must do in St Lucia
    My husband and I had a fantastic time in our advanced trail ride at Sandy hoofs! Truly it was by far the best way to see the island and truly get to appreciate the nature of that area. This was the best way experience and highlight of our trip. The three hour ride brought us to four different beaches that were all so beautiful and on the last beach they were a yearling and foals who came and hung out with us as we took our break. We really enjoyed getting to talk with the owner Josh and we were both so impressed with his love for horses in the horse community. If you’re thinking about doing any horseback riding, you must go to Sandy hoofs. Horses were very well behaved and in fantastic condition.

    A memorable day
    I booked my ride via Facebook messenger far where my queries & messages were responded to quickly and in a friendly manner. We arrived early at the stables and after a small communication error ( the staff were not expecting me ) a quick phone call and I was on my way. I rode a beautiful bay horse ( can’t remember his name ) and my guide was Alpha. I researched this trip and I’m a horsey person and will only ride horses abroad who look well and are cared for properly. At sandy hooves the horses are loved and looked after well. The ride itself was pleasant enough, the terrain is steep and rocky in places but the horses cope fine, some parts aren’t as pretty as others but the beaches make up for that. Beautiful views. Alpha let me ride bareback in the sea however it was a little rushed. I would of liked longer. Loved the yard dogs who followed us for the whole ride and we were also joined by some free running young horses and a foal. Our horses were not at all bothered by this much to my surprise as they were running around us up close. Would definitely return but maybe for the longer ride next time. Thank you again.

    Best riding in St. Lucia
    The farm is well taken care of, the horses are happy and healthy, and the tour was exceptional! It made my whole trip to St. Lucia. I went on the Advanced ride and we galloped down the beaches, which we went to four different ones. Views were spectacular to say the least. The owners put in 100% effort to make sure their horses are living their best life and it certainly shows. I would go back in a heart beat!

The best experience for my 8 year old daughter and myself. Had a beautiful 2 hour ride to and on the coastline and beach. The horses are well looked after and were very gently and sweet. Definitely coming back next time.

This was our favorite horseback riding trip. We had 3 dogs and one baby horse following us the entire time. The guides were so friendly and always made sure everything was ok. Thanks so much for the amazing experience. We will never forget it.

Excellent and friendly staff who guide you with your horse. Jordan entertained us as we went down to the beach and back. First experience of drinking coconut water too! Thanks for making it all so enjoyable and to Josh the friendly owner.

Had a wonderful time on the 2 hour beach ride. Tevin took great care of us. Was exciting riding the horses in the ocean while they cooled off from the ride to the beach. Highly recommend and would definitely do it again.

What can I say? If you want to go on the most epic ride of your life, Sandy Hoofs is the place to go.
I’m an experienced rider and my other half is learning.
A friendly welcome from Keri and Stephan (sorry if I spelt his name wrong!) and we were shown around the stables and met the beautiful horses.
All so well cared for and friendly.
We rode Diamond and Temperance and baby Sandy came along too.
My other half and I went on the 4 beaches ride and wow, it was stunning.
Amazing views, gorgeous beaches and just the best time.
Untouched surroundings and beautiful coastline and amazing weather.
Snacks and refreshments were even brought along for us to enjoy.
10/10 service and would not hesitate recommend for equestrians and novices alike!
We loved it so much we want to go back again next week!
Thank you Sandy Hoofs for one of the best rides I’ve ever been on ❤️

We booked Sandy Hoofs from the UK due to excellent reviews and were not disappointed. As we had limited time and for a birthday treat we took the private ride and were met at the cruise terminal by the lovely Jan and Keri and taken to the stables whilst being given an informative talk by Jan about the island. The horse were very well looked after and as horsey people we know what to look for. We had a fabulous ride along breathtaking cliff tops that are only accessible by horseback or foot and went down onto the beach for a surf ride. It was too rough to swim however that did not matter as we were given a lovely picnic with champagne and local produce to celebrate my husbands birthday. Amazing ride lovely staff and horses and stunning Atlantic coastal views. What could be better. Many thanks team xxx
