St. Maarten was a port stop on my Southern Caribbean cruise and since I’ve been to the island once before and did a drive around most of the island previously, I wanted to do something more interesting and unique. The Lucky Stables horseback riding tour fit the bill. I had previously signed up for a dolphin experience tour at the... More

my daughter and I ride 4 to 5 days a week. What we had never done before though was swim in the ocean. We were relieved to find upon arrival that the horses were well fed and their feet well shod! We didn't want to feel guilty about riding horses that were having a rough time of it. Our guide... More

I appreciate the information and wonderful experience that was provided by Jay our tour guide. I was nervous at first as we were traveling with an 8 year old and had never rode a horse before. Jay took all the worry out the ride and was there to help. This was by far one of the best things our family... More

We loved this activity. We booked this excursion through our cruise ship. We were met at the dock and escorted to the bus to the stables. There were lockers with locks to store anything we did not want to take on our ride. After being fitted with helmets, we grabbed the bottles of water they provided and headed over to... More

We came to St Maarten on a cruise. The riding excursion through the ship was sold out, so we booked it online. We took a cab to the stable, about a 20 minute ride. We had a 10:00 reservation and they were ready for us. We went out with a group of 5. Our guide, Jay was great. He told... More

We called on St. Maarten from a cruise ship which I booked for my wife's birthday. This was a great ride. Pretty, scenic and we got to ride horseback as it swam in the water, a very unique experience for me. The animals are clean and well kept and the staff very friendly. I'd have given them a five except... More

We were on a Royal Caribbean cruise with a one day stop in St. Martin. We booked horseback rides for three at Lucky Stables through Lucky Stables website. We got a confirmation on the phone and also in e-mail (that we printed and took with us) that should our confirmation for 11am. After a 30 minute taxi ride costing $25... More

Jay was a great tour guide, very informative, allowed ample time for pictures, fun trail and very friendly, lots of island history. Liked the fact that the horses roam free on the property at night and come back in the morning for feeding and tours. Great for the occasional riders who like an easy going horse with a beautiful view.
