Jamaican Ride & Swim!If you love the Caribbean outdoors and if you love horses, then you will really love Chukka's Horseback Ride & Swim! The Chukka staff will pick you up at your hotels and bring you to their very lovely private property where the horses are stabled. There is even a polo field at which to watch matches.
The horses are of various breeds and some are retired polo horses (look for the cool hair cuts). And there is no need to worry - the horses are VERY well-cared for.
Once the small group is saddled up, the Chukka staff takes everyone for a leisurely trail ride through the hillside. Once at the beach, the horses get a gear change, then it is into the water everyone goes for some wave-galloping! As they say, if you aren't getting wet, you aren't having fun! Once the water fun is done, everyone heads back to the Chukka site via a different trail.
A staff photographer accompanies the group and takes photos for the group to purchase. The rates are reasonable and very much worth the expense. (The highlight photo is one I took with a tiny point&shoot and is cropped. the Chukka photos are much nicer)
The beauty of the island is amazing and to be outside, bonding with the lovely horses is wonderful! It was the most fun I had in Jamaica!
