We had a wonderful time with Cowboy Steve and his crew. He was very knowledgeable and made even the novice riders feel comfortable on his horses. The horses each had their own personality but were alike in that they were gentle. My only complaint is that there wasn't enough riding. Steve spends the first hour telling you a bit about... More

I definitely recommend horseback riding on St Croix, and getting in the water with the horses was really fun. Equus, run by Cowboy Steve, brings the horses and riders all the way out into the water. Steve is very enthusiastic and clearly loves what he does. He had three very nice local guys working with him, who walked with us... More

Our experience of this activity was pretty good although could have been better, We were four and three of the four horses we took out were temperamental and not very responsive no matter how well we adhered to instructions from Cowboy Steven and his awesome staff of locals! The ride up to the sugar mill was great but into the... More

We all had the most amazing experience one in a life time, there was 9 of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed and got individual attention. My son who is 9 and quite fearful initially was totally put at ease from the beginning with Steve a truly wonderful man. Thanks so much for a great day.

Cowboy Steve is a wonderful person and safety was a major focus plus pretty well trained horses. We have taken multiple family rides on vacations, for context. There was real confusion among staff and 45min wasted time getting onto the horses. They wanted to accommodate 2 last minute people and tried to have us put our 2 kids together on... More

We just returned from a wonderful 7 night cruise. We had so many wonderful experiences. That said, our Equus ride with Cowboy Steve and his team was by far the standout of the trip. Steve and his team are dedicated to giving each rider an experience they will not forget. They exceeded their goal. He took a shy group of... More

Went horseback riding with a young friend with a mobility impairment. Steve and his helpers expertly helped lift her on and off her horse and ensured she had a wonderful time. Steve was great with the entire group which ranged from young children to grandparents and riding ability from horse owners to almost never. Fun, informative and where else to... More

Steve's passion for the island, it's history and his animals is evident in each of his stories. He and Noah treated us warmly and we cannot recommend the experience enough.
