The Next Big Thing in Belizean tourism may be equestrian holidays, according to Chaa Creek’s Brion Young, who said that horseback holidays at Belizean eco-resorts are growing in popularity. According to the Lodge at Chaa Creek, equestrian travel holidays seem to be the Next Big Thing for people interested in travelling to Belize.
“Over the last few decades Chaa Creek had built up what is undoubtedly one of the finest herds of horses in Belize. The 365 acre eco-resort has proven to be the country’s best breeding ground for some of the most beautiful horses in the country; quarter horses, appaloosas, buckskins, paints and an incredible variety of majestic animals that guests constantly comment on, especially those who know their horses,” Mr Young said.
“What started as an interest by the owners has now grown into a herd of some 28 magnificent animals, with a state-of-the-art stables for those who take advantage of our horseback riding excursions; either guided or unguided,” Mr Young said.
