With this fun Belize Horseback Riding Excursion experience, there are also two unique options. You can either be accompanied by a local guide and have the opportunity to explore the Open Pine Savannah forest, or you can explore the farmland on your own. No horseback riding experience is necessary.
This great Belize horseback riding shore excursion day begins by meeting with your friendly English speaking guide outside your Belize cruise tender pier. Then just hop onboard a comfortable, and air-conditioned transportation for the scenic 50-minute ride to St. Paul Bank Village where the horseback riding ranch is located.
Once you arrive at the ranch, your horseback riding excursion guide will give you a brief instruction and you will be matched to the Thoroughbred or Quarter Horse accordingly with your riding experience and weight. This is a great Belize Excursion for the whole family too! However, children from 3-7 years old must ride accompanied by a parent on the horse. Children ages 8-11 years can decide if they want to ride solo or double with an adult.
Once you are saddled up you are ready to take an easy ride through this lovely Belizian village and its surroundings. Don't forget, there are two options. If you choose to ride without a guide, you can explore the farmland area on your own, it is a tranquil open area, where the horses are used to walking. On either option, the horseback riding time is about 2 hours.
With a horseback riding excursion guide, you will enter a trail leading into the woods and have the chance to learn about local plants and the medicines that are made from them and of course the local wildlife. Your guide will also answer questions you may have about local life. You will be amazed at just how easily you leave your cares behind as you explore the ranch, and the Open Pine Savannah forest. Keep an eye out for white-tail deer, iguanas, and maybe a Howler Monkey, or two. One never knows, but this is their habitat so your chances are good.
Then, once you've finished exploring you will have 30 minutes to relax and and the option to purchase a delicious and typical local Belizian lunch approx. $5.00 USD. Then, it is time to board your transportation and head back to your Belize City cruise ship tender pier.
