There are so many activities for guests to experience when visiting Capella Marigot Bay Resort and Marina. For example, just a few minutes drive from the hotel is a lovely stable where guests can go to experience horseback riding in Saint Lucia. Recently, I had a chance to try this popular activity for myself.
Having only been horseback riding one other time in my life, I definitely have no real idea what I’m doing. But the guides’ directions made up for everything I lacked in experience. They were so comfortable on horseback that they could do it backwards!
We rode a trail alongside the banana plantation. I was still a little nervous so we kept the pace steady and slow. The experience is truly tailored to the participants skill level and I can’t wait to increase mine– galloping along would have been amazing.
We reached a clearing where we let the horses graze. As they ate we explored one of the most stunning beaches, Roseau Beach!
I was truly blown away by the beauty and serenity of this location. And as if that wasn’t enough, we had all of Roseau Beach to ourselves.
Back at the stables we were able to feed the horses their favorite apples and say our goodbyes. It was so much fun to create such lovely memories, especially along such endearing creatures. Added bonus, I definitely improved my riding skills, thanks to the knowledgeable and helpful guides.
Horseback riding on the beach is one of those activities that truly has it all. It is adventurous, romantic, and just plain fun! Also, it is an activity that can work for any age and skill level, making it ideal for groups and families.
Don’t forget to ask your Capella Marigot Bay Personal Assistant about all the different activities St. Lucia has to offer so they can guide you to the perfect Saint Lucian experience!
