Steve gave us so much freedom to take the horses just about wherever we wanted to go. He would let us gallop through the fields and kind of let us do... More

Cowboy Steve put us on perfect horse for a very fun ride through the countryside and to the sea - the horses love the ocean! Relaxed, fun and safe -- We loved it!

Cowboy Steve and his team were amazing! My mom and I had a fantastic time on this ride. Steve took his time with my mom and really made her comfortable being on a horse at 74 years of age. This was the highlight of her trip and she cant stop talking about it. The ride was beautiful and riding in... More

We planned this activity very last minute. They were very accommodating, helpful, understanding of our comfort level with horseback riding and friendly. Best memory from our trip walking horses into the ocean and spotting sea turtles. I'll never forget Cowboy Steve and the stories he told. Beautiful pictures. I would recommend this company to all my friends

Ok I have ridden horses quite a few times, but I have NEVER SWAM a horse through the ocean! What an experience. Once we were out thew, we could literally see the sea turtles pop their heads up and down. Some of the kids we were with literally did backflips off of their horses into the ocean! Don't worry, you... More

This was the most amazing experience. I have ridden many times before. But the experience of swimming on a horse in the ocean was the first and by far the best. Thanks to Steven and Elana who made the experience one that we will never forget.
