We had several options for horseback riding while visiting the island. A representative from our hotel recommended Steve who we found out only does this by word of mouth. We couldn't have been more pleased with the recommendation. The experience was more than we could have imagined. Steve was not only a guide he was entertaining, knowledgeable and personable. It...

You will not regret your decision to ride and swim with cowboy and his handlers! I'm an experienced rider and I've joined along 3 times in the past two years. I bring all visitors to ride with this tremendous group of people and horses. They offer a horse for all rider levels and cater to you individually, if needed. Don't... More

By far our favorite part of visiting St.Croix! I have been on the island many times but this was the first horseback riding. Dear friends referred us and I'm so glad they did.

Cowboy, Noah, and Ja were attentive, fun-loving, and energetic. The ride up to an abandoned sugar mill on a rocky trail with some trot and a little canter got the ride going and everyone excited. Once there, three of the horses walked right up the stairs into the beautiful rock structure and posed for pictures while we all STOOD ON... More

Enjoyable ride, distance traveled is short, but beautiful. Cowboy Steve takes you swimming on the horses. Best part was standing in the surf about 4-5ft deep and searching for sea turtles

Steve is a force of nature! An Irishman through-and-through, as well as a philosopher and a cowboy. We had an amazing time with Steve (especially amazing because we were the only two scheduled to ride). He is one of the most truly interesting, spiritual people we have met...certainly on this trip, if not in our lifetimes. Swimming with horses is... More

We hit St. Croix during a slow time of the year, and my wife and I were the only customers for Steven during this cloudy afternoon. He gave us a really great riding experience. Neither of us had ridden much in life, and none in a long time. He was very attentive to needs and we simply had a great... More
