Horseback Riding

A guide to horseback riding on Tobago

Swimming with the horses

Tired of the beach? Looking for something a little bit different? Well, Tobago has two excellent horse riding stables. Whether a total beginner or an advanced rider, you are guaranteed to enjoy the experience of trekking through the old plantations, down quiet country lanes or even cantering down a sandy beach.

Being With Horses opened in 2008. Owners Lennon and Veronika now have the market to themselves and the stables have expanded rapidly.

Friendship Stables had established a good reputation under the management of Louise Hearn. However, we understand that she left some years back. I visited the stables in March 2011 and found nobody to talk to. The buildings appeared abandoned and almost derelict. Visitor and local reports since have confirmed this situation. However, I understand that in the last year or so, owner Dereck Hearn has attempted to revitalise the stables. He has failed to respond to email enquiries so we are unsure of the situation. TripAdvisor has received a spate of rave reviews, out of the blue, in recent months. These follow a highly negative report in early 2012. Our site has been blitzed by multiple 5-star votes in the name of various email addresses - but all from the same computers. These have been discounted and the addresses concerned blacklisted. We should therefore advise extreme caution before taking any reports, good or bad, at face value and would strongly advise an inspection of the stables before booking.
