My girlfriend was a little scared but he was so careful with her, and made sure she was comfortable and laughing the whole time. It... More

This is our seventh year riding with Steve and every year is a little different, but all have been great. I have a bad back and trotting is not comfortable for me, so we went and rounded up my old friend Blarney, a Paso Fino with wonderful running walk. That's what I call service and it was fun. The sunset... More

It was a lot of fun! Riding the horse in the ocean was great! Steve gave us lots of history info and Noah was very good at getting us all jn the saddle and setup properly for a fun ride. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone!

We had rode Dublin, Gingee and Cheyanne. We got to ride through water, jump into the sea, sightsee and more! Anyone who is thinking of horseback... More

Rode with Cowboy Steve this morning and loved it. I'm not an experience rider and my horse, Pirate, took good care of me. Cowboy Steve continually checked in to see how I was doing. The more experienced riders in our group tried some daring things like standing on their horse. I was fine with just experiencing the pace of the... More

Lisa and I had a fantastic experience thanks to Cowboy Steve! We are experienced riders and we rode Dublin and Gingee at all gaits all around the plantation!! Then we went swimming!!! What a riot!!

Highly recommend Equus! Cowboy Steve is wonderful and ful of knowledge. Horses are well cared for and the ride was awsome. Took photos at a sugar mill and got to jump off the back of my horse into the sea! Really had a great time
