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.

Maximum combined weight for single or double riding is 270# (120Kg). Guests will be weighed on site. Those who are overweight will not be allowed to participate on the horseback ride and will loose all money paid. All others in the group must give 72 hours prior notice to cancel and must pay the balance.

When we booked this excursion we were considering exploring on our own but thought this excursion was a better option since we all like horseback riding back home. It was great having an expert showing us around and giving us all type of information about how locals live, he was very knowledgeable about plants and animals of the area. The horses seemed very well taken care of and the area was nice and clean. After the horseback riding we were given a lunch that was OK. Next year we are traveling with my husband family, for sure we will consider booking this excursion again :)!

     5/5 Visited in August 2016

We cruised with Carnival week of August 20th. For a family of 6 the excursion prices were outside of our budget if we wanted to do anything other than visit the beaches. We were delighted to find this excursion through Shore Excursioneer which afforded us fun, adventure and a different "taste" of Belize! Our guide met us right outside of the port and was easily identifiable with (his) sign and jersey. Wayland introduced himself to our family and offered interesting insights and perspective of Belize from his experience. The ride to the trail was 30 - 35 minutes so this was a great way to get history and viewpoint from a Belizean. Our horses were well trained which was excellent for my 7 year old daughter who had only rode once before. The trail itself is full of local flora and fauna which Wayland helped to identify during the ride. Since the trail is in the small village of the host family there were not many commercial sites/activities. If your easily bored with nature this may not be the excursion for you. The only snafu of the whole event was actually my own fault. I failed to realize the balance of our tour was to be paid in cash (USD). Wayland was quite understanding but of course we were mortified! Luckily he made an extra stop for us at a large banking branch and we were able to complete the cash transaction. I'm sure this took some unexpected time from his later appointments so I've added this as part of my review to hopefully help prevent the oversight in the future.
