An experience not to be missed on St.... More

My friends and I have a great time. Cowboy Steve is a facinating guy who has led quite an interesting life. The ride encompassed history, culture, nature, spirituality, and demonstrated Steve's deep connection with his horses.

My daughter Alyson and I enjoyed our ride with Cowboy Steve. He gave us a memory that will last forever. Steve should do some riding camps because he has so much experience with horses. This was truly an amazing day!!! Thank you for making our trip so memorable.

Hi, we absolutely do have camps, most of the summer, more as a way to help the local children experience this at a minimal cost. And believe me these kids have a great time and learn a lot! Thank you for the review. More

Cowboy Steve provides an awesome adventure! In the 2+ hours with him, he brought us through the St. Croix seaside scrub trees, an old sugar mill and took us swimming with the horses. He walked alongside us, took pictures of us and went up to his neck in ocean to lead us on an an amazing ride. He is very... More

A long time STX resident but this was my first time on the Equus Tour. Cowboy was great - had some historical and humorous stories as an introduction as only an Irish/Crucian can tell them. Justin, the assistant was also great. I'm not much of an equestrian, but was made to feel comfortable riding. Loved the riding in the ocean!... More
