It was Dan and Samantha's first visit to Jamaica, but the core reason was that it was Samantha's birthday!
And we had a ball!

And you would never have believed it, it was as if we knew each other for a long time.
But in actuality, Dan said he searched online for places to visit in Jamaica and found me, this website!
He actually encouraged his fiancé to pass the big booking engines that typically shows up first, along with the ads, and find a local!
I like that guy!
Long story short, I got a WhatsApp message from him requesting that I pick him up at the airport. I did that, and the rest, we say is history!
A few days later we were on one of the most exciting excursions, the combo of Horseback Riding, ATV, zip lining and the world famous Dunns River Falls climb!
In total, it was sensational!
But this, the Horseback riding, was the treat as I was doing this for the very first time! I'd actually done the others before, the Dunn's River falls, for example, several times.
After the formalities, we took off on our horses, each with an music artiste's (both local and overseas) name. We were exceptionally lucky to be able to do it away from all the crowd, in fact, it was just the three of us along with the two guides, so that made it more personalized and engaging!
On this trip, the horses we had were Rhino (my horse), Cherokee , Spice and Kartel. The other was Crisp, apparently an American rap group (I learned later).
We rode the horses for about 30 minutes in the forest and across the seaside before descending into the water, yes on the horses!
But that was just the first round!
The other leg of the adventure saw the guides taken Dan and Samantha on the horses, further into the sea, but now with safety swimming gear for what the guides called the 'Jet Ski' round!
And that is where the horses swim as well, but also perform other stunts, tricks and stuff.
Unfortunately (or fortunately), I did not do that leg of the adventure as I was not dressed for that!
Seriously, I didn't know :-)
Dan himself didn't even know that was a part of the adventure package :-)
If I did, I would have brought appropriate gear and change of clothes.
But anyways, now YOU know so you can prepare when you are coming!
But yes, I missed that part of the experience, but I was able to see it from shoreline - amazing stuff, but not for the weak heart!
I am told that based on the depth of the water, the horses were actually swimming!
And where it was a bit more shallow, they performed all types of stunts.
If you are in Jamaica, I'd highly recommend something like this to do, something a little different from the regular stuff but also quite fun and even romantic.
By the way, did I tell you that I have highlights of the tour on video?
Oh yes I do! Below, embedded, is the YouTube video, enjoy!
