Champagne Sunset Ride
Oct 2021
Danny was a friendly guide and the views were incredible. My horse, Xena, was calm and composed. Thanks for a wonderful experience! Going in the ocean on a horse was cool first.

Private champagne sunset horseback ride
Aug 2021 • Couples
We did the private champagne Disney horse riding tour with Davy. He was such a wonderful tour guide! He really made us feel comfortable with the horses and made the tour interesting. Please ask for him!

A mellow horseback ride, but worth it to go in the water
Aug 2021
We came for the horseback ride that includes taking the horse into the ocean. And that's exactly what we got! The guide was great, the horses were great and the views were great. But we were hoping for something a little less structured. We had to stay single-file the entire time. There was no cantering and the time in the water was especially structured, which reduced the fun for us. The cost seemed a little steep for such a mild experience.

The bartender was very friendly and they have some good stuff to drink, including Diplomatico and the local Guavaberry rum. There was also a kid's camp happening when we visited and the kids were super cute and knew all the horses by name!

Unique Family Horseback Ride
Aug 2021 • Family
This was a unique experience for our family. Danny took us up the coastal trail on the well behaved horses to look down the cliffs where the water crashing below. We finished up a fun ride with some time on horseback riding through the water. What a refreshing way to finish up a fun and beautiful ride.

Unforgettable experience
Jul 2021 • Family
Family of 6 had a fabulous time riding horses. We were all beginners and Dave our guide made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. Especially for my mom who is afraid of animals. Unforgettable and a definite experience you want to have in St. Maarten

Horses in Turqoise Water is Unforgettable
Jun 2021
This was a fun adventure, though hard to find. The people were super friendly. The horses were thin, but giving them a break for what it takes to ship over feed after covid. Views were spectacular and horses were great. Our guide was a little chattier than I care for, but fine overall. Of course, taking the horses deep into the water is what you remember, and is a must for all horse lovers.

Their website said there was a petting zoo, which I pumped up to my kid only to find out that it wasn't open yet. So that was a bummer. But he and his Dad were able to play on the swings, in the ocean, at the snack bar, and see a handful of other animals while we were on our ride. So it worked out.

Best excursion on the island
Jun 2021 • Couples
This is by far the best horse riding experience my wife and I have had. My wife is an experienced rider and I don’t have any riding experience, they matched us with the perfect horse to make it a memorable afternoon! The views during the ride were unbeatable! Every staff member was beyond kind and helpful. Riding the horses is the ocean was a once in a lifetime experience! Our guide was so knowledgeable. This is definitely an experience we can’t wait to go again! They even have a cute beach front restaurant/bar to relax after your ride.

Best part of the trip!
Apr 2021 • Couples
We did the two hour sunset ride and it was absolutely incredible. Breathtaking views while riding, champagne in front of a fire with the most beautiful sunset! Our tour guide, Danny, was fun and experienced. Would definitely recommend this evening on the island.

A Sunset To Die Over
Feb 2020
We arrived at the Seaside Nature Park around 4 PM about a half hour early for our champaign sunset horseback ride. It is located in an odd place. You need to drive through the local power plant which seemed strange but just ignore the weirdness of it all. We walked around the petting zoo before we met up with Hector our guide. The ride is only 2 hours but the views along the way were great. We stopped for photos, champaign and roasted marshmallows. At the end of the ride we all went riding into the water for a swim with our horses, which was a lot of fun. At the end a little rum punch to top off the evening. Well worth it if you enjoy riding but if you haven't been horseback riding before it will be all fine. They treat all as a beginner. A pleasant way to spend the early evening hours on a beautiful island.

Olga was awesome guide for the petting zoo
Dec 2019
We did this on our last day at St Martin. We visited the petting zoo. Olga took a lot of time explaining the stories behind the various animals - the newborn donkey baby Noel who was only 2 days old when we visited yesterday, the donkey buck who keeps running away from his paddock and is called Houdini because of it.. and so many other stories about the various animals, how they survived hurricane etc. This personal touch made it a lovely experience. Feeding the peacocks, watching iguanas, petting goats, sheep, donkey... and doing all this surrounded by clear blue sea was awesome.
