I took my family of 4 on a ride with Jill. I can't imagine a way that the ride could have been better. The horses were well matched to our skill level. We have one advanced rider, and the rest of us are amateurs. Our teenage advanced rider was able to pick up the pace a few times on a... More

Jill and Meg were wonderful guides and gave well thought out directions for those who didn't have riding experience. The trails were muddy but manageable and the pictures on the beach were fantastic! Bucky, my horse was the only one to need a more experienced rider which fit me perfectly. Jill gave wonderful information on the local area and fauna.... More

For my 50th birthday we recently took a Celebrity Cruise on the Summit to St. Croix. It was our first time on this beautiful island and really had no idea what to do or see. After researching some of the available excursions we decided upon horseback riding on the beach. I discovered Paul and Jill’s Horseback riding on St. Croix... More

We really enjoyed our ride with Jill. The scenery from forests to the beach was beautiful. She explained what we were seeing and what all of the plants where. Along with making sure the horses matches the experience of the riders.

Took our 5 kids on this trail ride through the trees and onto the beach. We all enjoyed it and I got to canter on my horse 'lil bit. Horses were easy going and we had no problems.

Jill was a great guide, very informative on trees and plants, and history of St Croix. The ride through the rain forest was very relaxing, the horses knew their route to take. And the ride portion on the beach was beautiful.

Jill is a fourth generation native to St. Croix. Her mother began rescuing horses on the island and Jill grew up rescuing horses, dogs and cats her entire life. She cares deeply for animals. She and her husband are very thoughtful when matching horses to riders. She cares about the safety of the riders as much as her horses' safety.... More

The owners were very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. They paired everyone up to horses that were well-suited to their experience levels. It was my first time on horseback without being led by someone with a rope, but the horse chosen for me was smart and well-trained, so I could relax and enjoy the gorgeous scenery. It was a lot of...

The animals are well cared for and Jill is careful to match the rider to the right horse. Her knowledge of the island and the rainforest is exceptional and the trails they've blazed are beautiful. This is a perfect ride for any visitor and any level rider. Those of us with experience had the opportunity to stretch our legs--and our... More
