The heartbeat of the world vibrates in every dimension. Travelers can explore Jamaica in different ways, and one of them is accompanied by a horse.
For maximum enjoyment and fun, head to Braco Stables. Horseback riding is offered through some of Jamaica's most beautiful scenery, be it through the mountains, the beach, the water, and almost 2,000 acres of cultivated fields.
Braco Stables is located in Trelawny, Jamaica, approximately 22 miles east of Montego Bay and 25 miles from Ocho Rios, the quintessential tourist village.
The parish of Trelawny is as much a part of local history as the Braco Estate, whose antecedents date back to the 18th century. The property was a sugar cane plantation in those days and later became a sugar factory. Later, it was devoted to growing peppers and maintaining an orchard, and some portion of the land was used for cattle.
Today, horses happily roam the vast fields, and the house has become a tourist attraction because of its location and beauty and because it is part of the islanders' past. The dwelling was restored with attention to the details of the period to recover its grandeur and was transformed into private property.
Inside the house, from its stables, the most fun horseback rides in Jamaica are all accompanied by expert guides who also comment on the area's history.
The country's beauty could be discovered differently when one rides through the interior and crosses long distances until reaching the beautiful beaches of turquoise waters of the North Coast, where horse and rider cool off at sunset.
