Cowboy Steve provides an awesome adventure! In the 2+ hours with him, he brought us through the St. Croix seaside scrub trees, an old sugar mill and took us swimming with the horses. He walked alongside us, took pictures of us and went up to his neck in ocean to lead us on an an amazing ride. He is very... More

Cowboy Stephen was awesome - made the ride great! He picked us up at The Renaissance and took us back afterward, which was wonderful, no taxi needed!

A long time STX resident but this was my first time on the Equus Tour. Cowboy was great - had some historical and humorous stories as an introduction as only an Irish/Crucian can tell them. Justin, the assistant was also great. I'm not much of an equestrian, but was made to feel comfortable riding. Loved the riding in the ocean!... More

This was the best part of our st croix trip hands down. Steve was really fun and safe, he knows what he's doing, you just have to go with the flow and listen to him. My girlfriend was a little scared but he was so careful with her, and made sure she was comfortable and laughing the whole time. It... More

I never knew how much fun horse back riding could be on an island but this is my families 2nd time and it's by far my favorite thing to do on the island. Cowboy Steve is the MAN! He is so knowledgeable and leaves you feeling at peace with your Horse. He even let me stand up on my horse... More

This is our seventh year riding with Steve and every year is a little different, but all have been great. I have a bad back and trotting is not comfortable for me, so we went and rounded up my old friend Blarney, a Paso Fino with wonderful running walk. That's what I call service and it was fun. The sunset... More

It was a lot of fun! Riding the horse in the ocean was great! Steve gave us lots of history info and Noah was very good at getting us all jn the saddle and setup properly for a fun ride. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone!
