This experience was wonderful!!! We were treated so great by Phil & Jill and even though we three all had different experience levels they hand picked the perfect horses for us and they worked out perfect. I rode Bucky (which scared me a little with the name) he was great and we held up the rear of the tour. My... More

This was not just about riding horses. Paul and Jill's horses know the way through the rain forest and along the beach, but what makes this experience stand out vs. other equestrian outings is Jill's knowledge of the forest: what grows there, what used to grow there (sugar) and what may become of the forest soon (redevelopment). You get a... More

I highly recommend this horse riding facility. Jill is a dedicated equestrian who takes excellent care of her horses. They are well trained, well-groomed and well-fed. I am an experienced rider and she gave me a wonderful horse that clearly has had a lot of training - walk, trot, canter under full control of the rider at all times. My... More

Nice ride through rainforest (mainly) and on beach. Jill grew up here and gives lots of info on plants and history of area. Would definitely go ride with them again.

We had a lovely tour lead by Jill. Upon arriving we met many dogs and cats who live on the farm. (A highlight for us. ) After being matched with horses depending on our experience and weight (don't worry, there was no judgement based on either criteria,) we went on a ride. It's easy going through "rain forest," plantation ruins,... More

My wife and I did this on our honeymoon. Jill was a lot of fun and had a ton of info about the island and the history of St. Croix. She was able to take a lot of great pictures of us as well. The short ride on the beach was fun but the ride through the jungle is only... More

We took a horseback ride with Jill back in May and loved it! Jill was patient, informative, and best of all most of her animals are rescues. If we go back to visit we will surely ride again with Jill...

We own horses, so this trail ride thing is not a novel experience. And it's true that the beach ride is kind of underwhelming unless you have never been on the beach on a horse before. And it is also true that Jill does not exactly give you the warm and fuzzies. However, it is a pleasant ride and if... More

Jill and Paul were so helpful and patient with all the beginners. The ride through the rainforest and then to the most beautiful beach was truly an amazing experience!

Whenever I travel, my favorite thing to do is go for a trail ride to experience the area. For our honeymoon in St. Croix, we booked a ride with Paul and Jill's. We ended up being the only riders for the day, and Jill took us through their property and on to the beach. We had a great time, Jill... More
