So who thinks of going to the Caribbean on a cruise and go horseback riding when you have 37 square mile of Island and 37 bays? We did..and what an amazing experience it was. Madonna, Angelina, Prince and Viva took us on a mountain tour under the professional yet fun guidance of Edwin. The horses are amazing, disciplined and responsive.... More

As a life long horse lover, I naturally looked forward to a ride along the electric blue, tropical waters while visiting Saint Marteen. The staff was warm, welcoming, and professional, ensuring our safety and fun. It was clear that the owners and staff are able to accomodate all levels of riders, including 1st timers! My husband and I arrived a... More

My daughters went horseback riding. A first for my 7 year old. My 14 year old rode horses before. It was not the best day because rain came out of nowhere. When it eased up a bit they went out, but the rain was intermittent throughout the hour experience. The staff was very nice, and accommodating, since it was my... More

This experience was great for the entire family! It was the first time on horseback for all of us, but our guide was so patient and knowledgeable that we were quickly at ease and felt like pros (well almost). We rode mountain trails and had waded in the Caribbean Sea with our named horses. They loved it and we did... More

We had so much fun, it was beautiful. The horses are very loved by the staff and they were so nice. Our guide Darrel was so awesome, and loves the horses dearly. I'm always apprehensive about doing attractions with animals because I worry about their welfare but I could definitely tell the animals are cared for here. Definitely recommend!

We opted for the Sunset avec Champagne Tour. That was the second time we ever rode the horses in our life, and it has been phenomenal. First of all, they only walk - so that's safe. But with truly steep ups and downs, you have to use all your skills to stay put - the thrill is definitely there. Combined... More

Had a fantastic time going up and down the rocky breathtaking trails. Went with 4 friends but got stuck with 8 of us. The guides were phenomenal but would be happier in a group of 4. Too many horses bunching up together . Would've liked more water time. But I will be going back in October.

We just returned from St. Maarten and have to say the ocean horseback riding was our favorite excursion on the island. Remi was our guide and was extremely friendly and made our tour perfect. The staff in general were very accommodating. A must do if you visit. The pictures turned out wonderful from their photographer.

Most clients are cruise ship passengers on shore excursions, with transportation to the park by organized tour, taxi or... More

We were in port on a cruise but the riding package the cruise offered in a different port had been discontinued. Since it was a dream of my daughters to ride in the ocean we arranged on our own to ride at Sea Side Nature Park. Contacting them via email in the beginning was a tiny bit frustrating because the...
