Seville Heritage Beach Ride on Horseback

Private tour in Kingston


This ride combines history with fun, the only one of its kind. Our tour starts with a visit to the Seville Great House Museum, which houses a wealth of artifacts found on this fascinating property. Then its time to mount up and visit all the places that we have learnt about, riding by castles and sugar factories dating back nearly 500 years. Ride through wooded areas, where the Taino Indians used to hunt for food. Learn about the culture of these first Islanders, their beliefs, habits and existence, before Columbus landed and the island was colonized under the Spanish flag. Ride through a natural wetland, shaded by almond and coconut trees, and see the excavations carried out by archaeologists, keen to uncover the deep rooted history of this area. On arrival at the beach, refreshments are served in our jungle beach hut, before we strip down to our bathing suits, for a dash through the waves on horseback. For your safety, we keep the saddles on, so you don't have to worry about staying on!!! Our return ride takes you along the deserted beach, where herons and other waterbirds fish in the shallow waters. Through the mangroves, which hide the remains of an eighteenth century warehouse, and by an ancient waterwheel which powered the old sugar mill on this former sugar plantation. A history lesson and beach ride in one!
