If you’ve ever had the joy of riding a horse in an open field, you know how exhilarating and fulfilling the experience can be: Jamaica’s Half Moon resort takes the experience one step further with a unique experience that allows you to ride Biscuit from the beach and straight into the Caribbean’s azure waters.
Not to worry, as horses are excellent swimmers, and the resort’s equestrian centre has over 28 years of experience in taking care of their equines and guests alike. The adorably named Turf & Surf experience, which lasts for two hours, will take guests around the resort’s sprawling complex and onto its golden beaches, before the horses traipse into the waters for a refreshing swim: with you on its back.
Aside from the unique experience in the sea, the Half Moon resort also has a comprehensive list of activities at its sprawling equestrian centre, including private lessons, pony rides for children, and a spectacular stroll down the beach at sunset.◼
