Seldom do you sign up for an 'adventure' and really have the adventure... but this was totally different! Cowboy Steve and his staff go all the way!!! They were so helpful and delightful in making sure the experience was everything wished for and more. The ride up to the sugar mill, trotting thru the beautiful field to the ocean was... More

Our sunset ride was wonderful. Steve was very patient with us, explaining how to properly ride the horses, which made the ride even more enjoyable. He took the time to explain the island of St. Croix to us, pointing out different vegetation and landmarks along the way. Make sure to bring your bathing suit and a change of clothes however,...

This one on of the highlights of our vacation. We had so much fun and riding in the ocean was a bonus. Cowboy Steve was a hoot. He had us jumping off the horses and was in the water with us while his crew taking photos (our cameras) on the beach. The entire time was very enjoyable. The only thing... More

Cowboy Steve is amazing and his horses are just as awesome as him. The tour and water acrobatics are a highlight of any trip to St. Croix and a must do!

This is my second time horseback riding and it was by far the best! I was on the island for spring break and called a few days in advance the person I spoke with on the phone was great and even gave me a discount because of the large group. Five of my friends and myself decide to go and... More

Cowboy Steve's horseback experience is nowhere near an ordinary trail thru the woods. He's very informative about St Croix's native plants and his holistic approach makes you feel relaxed and Totally connected with the earth. Experienced riders are free to gallop ahead and if you need guidance, he has plenty of hands to help out. Thanks so much.. Definitely one... More
