Ok I have ridden horses quite a few times, but I have NEVER SWAM a horse through the ocean! What an experience. Once we were out thew, we could literally see the sea turtles pop their heads up and down. Some of the kids we were with literally did backflips off of their horses into the ocean! Don't worry, you... More

This was the most amazing experience. I have ridden many times before. But the experience of swimming on a horse in the ocean was the first and by far the best. Thanks to Steven and Elana who made the experience one that we will never forget.

My Wife and I had an amazing time on our Horseback ride in St. Croix Cowboy Steve and his partner Elena, they were the best, very calm, helpful, patient and knowledgeable of the area and its history. I recommend it to anyone from young to old. Going into the ocean with the horses was an amazing experience. Cowboy Steve was... More

I have to be honest I have a fear of horses but this was an amazing experience! I loved Steve he is such a sweet sweet man! He is also very knowledgeable and helpful! The views were beautiful as well as the water. I felt safe and very content with the experience!

This is an awesome place for riding, and pretty sure there aren't many people with the horse AND people skills that Stephen O'Dey has. Just a great experience on one of the most picturesque sites in all of St. Croix.

Nicky, Isabella and Katie had an experience of a lifetime on horseback. First some daring stunts in an old windmill tower (great photo op), then a long ride in the ocean. Poor me getting eaten by sand flies while taking pictures on the beach (bring bug spray if you go at dusk!) but it was worth it!

Hi! Thank you for the review and yes, the sand flies (we Crucians call them 'mompies') are invisible little monsters. Here's a hint if you forgot the bus spray, go knee deep in the water, they don't swim. But don't drop your camera! I am so glad the girls had a blast. Stephen More

I am a very experienced rider and am a bit of a critic of horse rental/day ride establishments. Cowboy Steve treated us and his horses with the upmost respect. He embodied many of the best ground training and control methods used in equine training. The horses were well cared for, well mannered, and groomed. Cowboy Steve went above and beyond... More

Wow what a great time that is so worth it. Very impressed with Cowboy Steve and the amount of time he spent with everyone teaching them about the island, techniques and how to handle the horses. We feel that Steve is one of the most interesting and intriguing individuals we've ever met. We will definitley recommend his tour as well... More

Steve and his partner (Noah?) are great! We broke off into two separate groups, since there was also a family with small children. We took our horses into the sugar mill, and then along the beach and into the water. Cowboy Steve was kind enough to give us a ride in his truck since we did not have our own... More
