What a wonderful relaxing experience with Steve, Katherine, Jahson and the wonderful gentle horses. We left the city jobs to get an island refresher. Steve gets you in the right frame of mind with his "Island-chill, no hurry" demeanor and gets you ready to relax and enjoy the ride, whether you are a novice or experienced rider. You meet at...

Was a little hard to find, but a quick call got us there. Everyone seamed to know everyone else there. Kath and I had a lot of fun on the horseback ride. Cowboy Steve gave a history lesson of the island while leading us on our ride. It was fun to ride into the ocean on horseback. Even one of... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our ride with Steve, Katherine and Noah. All 3 are attentive to both the horse and riders comfort and experience level. From the scenery at (and in) the sugar mill to swimming in the sea with the horses, it was an experience we will never forget. They take time and get to know a... More

Horseback riding with Cowboy Steve and His girlfriend Katherine is more than just a horseback ride... it is truly an experience we will never forget!

Where do I start! Cowboy Steve is full of interesting facts about the island and it's history. He truly tries to get to know something about you and makes sure that everyone is comfortable no matter the age or experience. There is a horse to accommodate a wide range of riders. Not only was the actually tour great, but for... More

This was absolutely fantastic!!! Steve is a very genuine and kind person (as Kathryn). He is great working with people that are not well versed in horse back riding, so no worries if you are concerned he will take good care of you!! There is nothing better than having someone so knowledgeable about the island he lives on and he... More

My husband and I had the best time! My husband has rode a horse before, I had not and that didn't pose a problem what so ever. I was able to just ride along on the horse that Steve guided which I preferred since I was able to take pictures along. This was so fun and educational. Would do it... More

I made a reservation on 3/25/17 by giving him my credit card number over the internet. Cowboy Steve met us two days later, assessed our riding skills, gave us a one hour tour of surrounding plants, trees and rocks, then we held hands in a circle and he lead us in a group meditation. Then finally, the ride commenced. Cowboy... More
