I read many of the reviews and kept reading "If you do nothing else in St. Croix, this is a must!!!". I agree...this is a must do excursion, whether you are a couple, family or group. My husband and I brought our 16 year old daughter and her friend down to St. Croix and booked this trip. First of all,... More

Cowboy Steve provided our family an unforgettable horseback ride into the ocean! Steve is genuinely a wonderful human being who shares his knowledge of St. Croix including various trees, shrubs, and wildlife as well as history of the island with us. The riding was easy and the views spectacular, perfect for our family of four. We highly recommend this adventure!

Cowboy Steve and his numerous, caring horse hands provide a safe and interesting ride along the fields, beaches and into the warm water of St. Croix. The horses are well cared for and trained and the ride is adaptable to beginners and experienced riders. There are opportunities to learn about the local history, plants and animals in the natural setting.... More

My husband and I did this ride with our 11-year-old son today. We've had very limited experience on horseback; been on two brief trail rides in the woods prior to this trip. Cowboy Steve is a person who is knowledgeable about St. Croix (history, flora and fauna, etc.) and is genuinely excited about life, which is always great to be... More

We had a fantastic ride with Steve which capped our entire week off in St. Croix with a ride in the ocean with the horses. Steve provided the history of the island, the ecosystem, and the ranch background, which was very informative during the ride. His fine horses and reverence to everything provided the best ride we have ever had... More
