Absolutely awesome. Totally different experience. Most trail rides are a one hour ride along a trail. Here you spend a majority of your time in the water with your horse. Not just getting your feet wet, you get wet. It is fun and Cowboy and his team are great. Super personable and they do a wonderful job on instruction and... More

Let me first start by saying that St. Croix is a beautiful Island. Its people, it's nature, its food, pretty much the perfect place for a romantic get away. When I first decided i wanted to get engaged to my now future wife, i wanted it to be something special, something that we could remember for a life time, so... More

Tired of the boring trail rides in the states where your horse just walks in a straight line? Then join cowboy Steve and his wonderful horses. I am an experienced rider and had the time of my life! I got to trot and canter, did some trick riding (with help of cowboy Steve), and then went swimming in the ocean... More

Sam, Luke and I would like to give Cowboy Steve and Ja-son a heartfelt thank you for an experience that was the highlight of our trip. Cowboy Steve's passion and enthusiasm for the horses and St. Croix was contagious. He took his time in teaching us so much about the history of St. Croix and spent time really getting to... More

I wanted my first visit to St. Croix, VI to be a memorable one and I believed that a horseback ride on the beach would be the pinnacle of the trip. I was right. Upon meeting Cowboy Steve, I immediately felt his love, care, passion, and compassion for his horses and the clients/customers that would be riding them. My friend... More

Where do I even begin? Cowboy Steve is quite a character, but VERY fun to be around. His energy is infectious. The tour consisted of a ride up the hill to a sugar plantation. Then back down the mountain to the ocean where you get IN the ocean with your course. INCREDIBLE! My last sunset in St. Croix was on... More

My wife and I came to St Croix on our honeymoon and she proposed horseback riding; I had zero experience and she used to ride competitively so I was a little nervous. My nerves were unfounded. Stephen and Noah and the rest of the crew were extremely friendly and professional and did everything they could to make the whole small... More

By far the coolest thing I have ever done. Cowboy Steve was so patient with us on teaching us about the horses and made sure we were comfortable throughout the whole ride since some of us haven't rode horses much before. His two assistants were great as well!!
