Default Ocho Rios - Horseback Riding

Has anyone done the horseback riding tours in Ocho Rios? How far was it from the ship? Did you have a good time? Do they really swim in the water? Thanks!

Default Horseriding

My two daughters (16 and 12 at the time) rode horses in Jamaica through the following outfit:
http://www.bracostables.com/

It was kind of scary since it was about a 1/2 hour ride or more and was not "affiliated" with the cruise. The outfit itself was a bit ...shall we say...off the beaten path and looking kind of neglected. However...the ride itself was great. Some additional feedback for you:
1) Ask if they use western saddles. Ours were not and are much harder to ride.
2) The "ride in the water" was OK with this outfit. One by one the guide leads you and a horse through a small lagoon for about a minute. I passed, but my kids kind of enjoyed it.
3) We had to tip both the guide AND the taxi driver since they were with two different companies.

I would do it again...but perhaps shop a bit more next time.

Have fun!
