Cleland Equestrian Club Tours
Immerse yourself in the untouched beauty of the Eastern side of the island of Barbados. Trek through the forests of the Scotland District, capture breathtaking views of the East Coast and take a gentle stroll down the beach. Our tours take you through forests filled with indigenous plants and fruits. Coconut trees, mango groves, and five finger fruit bushes, just to name a few, all of which can be sampled when in season. Whether you are an experienced rider, or this is your first encounter with horses, Cleland tours are a magical way to experience the natural wonders of Barbados.
2 Hour Tour
Our most popular tour begins with a trek through mountainous terrain and over rolling hills into the Scotland District. Experience the Coot pond, home to the protected Coot bird and the Lily pond. Ride through fruit orchards of mangos, coconuts and guavas to name a few, sampling the fruit if in season. Make full use of a photo opportunity at the historic Morgan Lewis Windmill, one of the last two sugar mills still intact in the Caribbean. Take a gentle Stroll down the sandy shores of Morgan Lewis beachfront. On the ride back to the club is the perfect opportunity for more experienced/adventurous riders to trot and canter your horse down the hills. This ride ends back at the stables.
1 Hour and 30 minute Tour
This tour mimics the path of the 2 hour tour except after your stroll down Morgan Lewis Beachfront, you will dismount from your horse in the quaint Shorey village. Witness the horses being set free and gallop back to the stables. A car service will be provided to transport you back to the stables.
