We own horses, so this trail ride thing is not a novel experience. And it's true that the beach ride is kind of underwhelming unless you have never been on the beach on a horse before. And it is also true that Jill does not exactly give you the warm and fuzzies. However, it is a pleasant ride and if... More

Jill and Paul were so helpful and patient with all the beginners. The ride through the rainforest and then to the most beautiful beach was truly an amazing experience!

Whenever I travel, my favorite thing to do is go for a trail ride to experience the area. For our honeymoon in St. Croix, we booked a ride with Paul and Jill's. We ended up being the only riders for the day, and Jill took us through their property and on to the beach. We had a great time, Jill... More

There was 5 of us in our group. We were matched up to great horses, very easy to ride and well trained. My husband loved Sushi and Butch was a great horse too. Nice trail through the rain forest and great beach ride. We would highly recommend this activity.

I enjoyed the horseback ride with dogs! It was not as hot as I expected because most of the way the trees provided plenty of shade. Jill, our tour guide, was very friendly and nice. We even trotted in second and third gear. Just hold on to your hats! :) It was $100 for a 2 hr ride. You can... More

We stopped at this port from our cruise ship. It was a 5 minute taxi ride to the stables. There were 8 of us and they took us on a wonderful ride through the jungle and then to the beach. I thought it would be pretty warm but the jungle provided great shade for the ride. Very enjoyable. Highly recommended.

My husband, kids, and I went on a beautiful trail ride with Jill as our guide. Our horses were very friendly and Jill made sure to match each rider with just the right horse based on the rider's experience. She took us through the rainforest and along the beach. There were so many interesting trees and plants and Jill told... More

Beautiful scenery on an enjoyable ride through the rainforest and beach. I rode on sushi which I would definitely recommend. Very friendly and easy going horse. None of the horses on our ride had a problem, beautiful well cared for pets. Paul and Jill are friendly down to earth people. Definitely an experience I'd enjoy again. Thanks for the fun.

Enjoyed riding on an island and fulfilling my bucket list. The trail through the rain forest was interesting and had great scenery. The horses were laid back and easy going. Had a horse to fit every riding ability and personality. Jill and Paul were great hosts!
