When most people imagine the gorgeous Caribbean Islands, they picture long sunny days surfing and swimming. But these lucky travelers decided to partake in a different beach activity: horseback riding.

There could not be a more perfect place to ride. The sandy beaches are fine and soft, and the clear coastal waters are warm and are a stunning light blue hue.

But this warm horseback ride is unlike any you have heard of. These talented equines do not stick to just the land. They love to take their riders for a swim.

While most horses would shy away from the calm Caribbean sea, these unique beasts could not get enough of it. After all, their riders floated in the water, and they got to cool off in the warm waters.

The horses choosing to go for a swim was something the owners of Pampered Ponies of Grand Cayman made sure to point out in their video. These horses love going for a swim.

And who could blame them? Carrying a person on your back is tiring work for any animal, even a strong horse. Additionally, temperatures in the Caribbean can get up there!
