What a dissapointment this experience has been - whilst communication has been excellent during the booking process done via email, it rapidly went downhill with our arrival at Lucky Stables (on the Dutch Side) where the staff at the reception were rude - no hello, no welcome and a gentleman barking orders to get ourselves ready, having to choose a...

We took our ride on April 8, 2014 and loved it. There were only 4 of us in the group, plus Lewis our guide. The horses were well trained and loved the water. Lewis was a great tour guide, stopping to show us different things and tell us various information about St. Maarten. He also took lots of pictures of... More

Booked for my two kids and myself online. The website was easy and everything was fine. The guide (Danny) was funny and informative. He knew a lot about the area and was willing to share. Nice trail with beautiful sights. Last and most importantly, the horses are well maintained and cared for. Each guide seems to know each horses's temperament.... More

Lucky Stables champagne and marshmallow bonfire sunset horse ride is amazing! Such a great thing to do on vacation. The view of the sunset was breathtaking. Our guide, Jay (not to be confused with Jay-Z), was amazing. He was so knowledgeable about the area and about the horses. He definitely added to the experience! I would definitely recommend!

My daughter is a rodeo cowgirl and my wife is afraid of horses, but they both loved Lucky Stables. The horses are very well trained and cared for. My daughter and I had a great guide who let the horses gallop. The horses were perfectly matched. She wanted a spirited horse and I wanted an athletic but well behaved mount,... More

We booked this as a shore excursion from the cruise ship. Our guide Jay was very friendly and informative. 5 in the mixed ability group. The ride began with a briefing and then we set off on a track with breath taking view of the sea and surrounding area. The ride took us back to the beach where we rode... More

If you like to horseback ride, this is a great way to do it. We took the champagne sunset ride and it was great. Jay, our guide, was very informative and the sunset views were great. Champagne and roasted marshmallows plus the chance to ride into the surf! 2 hours well spent. The riding is very basic, so if you... More

Went horseback riding with our 2 teens for a 1 hour ride.The guide Danny was super friendly and very reassuring as all of us are beginners. We went through trails for about 45 min and then ended our ride with a swim in the ocean on our horses. An absolutely breathtaking and unforgettable experience.The horses were well taken care of...

Went for the 1 hour intermediate ride with my family. The guide was helpful and friendly and the ride was adequate for beginners. It was the basic "follow the leader" approach. We rode up a foothill with breathtaking ocean views, then rode down and walked through the water to cool off the horses. We were expecting (and were told) to... More

My daughter and I went here during our visit to St. Maarten. The horses were great. The views were amazing. I loved taking the horse into the water and cool down and walking along the beach. Nice ride for an hour. Thought it was going to be very hot but was nice breeze and cool.
