HAPPY HORSES MEAN HAPPY CUSTOMERS
“Wow!!! I don’t even know where to start. I HIGHLY recommend Atlantic Shores Riding Stables. We came in on a cruise and were picked up at the cruise port. It was just me and my now fiancé. We took a private taxi across the island through the rain forest to the riding stables. The ride was about an hour ride but it was very scenic. It allows you to really see the island of St. Lucia like the locals do. The people on the island of St. Lucia were so nice and the owners and workers were no different. They went above and beyond to help me plan a perfect proposal overlooking the ocean splashing into the cliffs. We did a private tour and it was just us and a tour guide. You won’t believe the land that you will be riding across on horseback. It feels like you are on a secluded island all by yourself. You ride along the cliffs and down onto two different beaches. The owners met us out on the cliffs and told us that he was there to take pictures. Once he pulled the cameras out, that is when I proposed. He then surprised us both when he brought out champagne and and bouquet of flowers. It really was perfect and it blew her mind. If you are visiting St. Lucia on a cruise or staying in a hotel, you MUST go to Atlantic Shores Riding Stables. My pictures cannot do it justice. Stop thinking about it and book it. You will not be disappointed!!”
“Wow wow wow! What an amazing experience. This was the best activity in Saint Lucia! I hadn’t been horse ridding since a little girl, so I was a novice. I couldn’t have felt more welcome and safe! The horses are spectacular, so beautiful and well trained. I did the 3 hour trip including beautiful scenery and amazing secluded beaches. If there is anything you should do while in Saint Lucia, it’s a trip out with the Atlantic Shores Riding Stables.”
“It was a great experience and definitely something I’d recommend. It was the first time that I rode a horse and I was nervous at first but the instructor quickly took notice of my apprehension and my horse was tied to his in order to properly follow until I was comfortable enough to ride on my own. Me and my boyfriend got the best of pictures on the horse! It was wonderful!”
“Do not go anywhere else but Atlantic Shores Riding Stables for horseback riding in St. Lucia. It is an incredible experience starting out on the hills above the ocean and then taking a ride on two separate beaches (if you opt for the 3-hour ride, which I highly recommend) where you dismount and enjoy the refreshing ocean. Max is an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and personable. This was the absolute highlight of our vacation in St Lucia and at an extremely reasonable price. On an island where things can get expensive quickly, this was by far the best value on the island. We have done horseback rides all over North America and this was the best ride we have been on. This is a must-do adventure on St. Lucia”
“Atlantic Shores Riding Stables was one of the best horseback riding experiences I have ever had. I had always wanted to ride a horse on a scenic Caribbean beach and this stable made my dream come true! Not only did we ride along the beach, but atop grassy bluffs overlooking the ocean. The views were absolutely stunning and the horses were wonderfully sure-footed.
I booked the trip for myself and two friends, one who had never ridden a horse before. She was a little nervous, but Wayne and the crew were fantastic about making sure all of us had a very safe and memorable experience. They answered all our questions and made sure we were each paired with a horse that fit our level of experience. The horses were beautifully taken care of and seemed very happy.
I would choose to ride with Atlantic Riding Stables again in a heartbeat! Thank you!”
“A solo ride from the beach into the jungle and then in the rolling hills…who could ask for more? The horses we saw were in excellent condition, the people were great, and the transfer from the ship and back again was seamless. Our driver for the day, Assunta, arranged through the stables, took us through the city, the rainforest, and eventually to the stables on the other side of the island. She was excellent and informative, taking us to the beach while our 19 year old daughter rode for several hours, and on the way back to the ship took us to the “waterfall”. If you ride, Atlantic Shores is the place for you! We arranged everything months before via email with Wayne, and were impressed with their organization.”
“I’ve been riding all my life but it’s always been a dream of mine to gallop a horse along the beautiful white sands in the Caribbean and on 25th November Atlantic Shores helped me fulfill that dream! From the start Wayne was extremely helpful and the communication was brilliant. We chose Atlantic Shores riding as they seemed to provide smaller groups and were flexible in us achieving what we wanted to get out of the ride. As an experienced rider and my husband a beginner I wanted to make sure we both enjoy the ride, and as it was our honeymoon I was excited of the offer of a private ride just us. We were picked up on time from our cruise ship and travelled about an hour and a half to the stables taking in all the beautiful scenery of the island. We were looked after from the start and headed out with Max and his puppy Gypsy. We rode through beautiful open landscapes around the cliffs and down to the beach where we walked along the sand and in the water. My partner then dismounted before myself and Max took off in a gallop along the beach. We then went to another lovely beach before heading through the pasture with all the other horses grazing. The ride was relaxed and everywhere was lovely and peaceful. Max was a brilliant tour guide, both our horses Copper and Gem were well behaved and extreamly well looked after! I’d like to thank everyone for looking after us and making our day so special and we will be visiting again!! Can’t recommend enough!”
“If there was a 6th star, I would give it to Atlantic Stables! On our 3 hour ride, we were able to see so much of Saint Lucia, views only available from the ride and were entertained by our guide throughout. Our guide, one of the younger men working at the stable, was very knowledge able about the land and history, but most of all he allowed us to take our time and enjoy the best moments on the ride. My favorite part(s) included the beach, running my horse in the waves, dismounting and allowing her to roll in the ocean, then brushing her off. I had never felt so free and connected to the animal. This was very special for me. Even my boyfriend, who is less of a horse lover, said our day riding was the highlight of his trip (first over the piton hike, sailing and the beach). Thank you to Wayne and Kimson for the memories we will never forget!
ps- the 6th star is for the level of care and service offered by Wayne who booked us and continued to show us around the island even after our ride. This was by far the best communication and guided experience (including free photography) I have EVER experienced.”
