Cruzan Cowgirls Horse Rescue is currently a privatized, not-for-profit, no-kill horse rescue which will, in the future, be primarily supported by income created via Cruzan Cowgirls Horseback Riding Tours as well as donations from our community and supporters. The refuge intends to provide sanctuary for retired racehorses, homeless horses and abused horses on St Coix, USVI. Each of the horses is given an evaluation at the time of acceptance to assess their individual needs. Some require veterinary care, routine vaccinations, worming, external parasite control, hoof care and nutritional supplementation in addition to mental rehabilitation. If we have the housing space and the horse is qualified to become a part of our Guided Tour program, they can remain as permanent residents with us. Horses that fall short of the requirements will be fostered out, rehomed, or sent to any number of retirement pastures we are trying to gain access to. In the past, many many horses have been euthanized because there was simply no safe place for them to go. However, Cruzan Cowgirls will only consider euthanization for horses with seriously debilitating issues. In addition, we hope to begin educational campaigns within the community to raise awareness of proper horse care, training and nutrition. We also hope to set an example for the many horse owners on ST Croix, to show them a different way to approach horse ownership. We want to lead by example and improve the lives of as many horses as we can on this beautiful island.

  • We really enjoyed this laid back horse ride through the forest. The horses were well cared for and well trained. I'm a novice rider and I felt completely safe and comfortable. Our guides (Jessa and Jenna) were friendly and helpful and they made sure we had a good time. Riding the horses in the ocean was really unique and fun but I loved seeing the flora of the island, too. Highly recommend this if you want a unique adventure while on St Croix
  • We had a wonderful advanced private ride with Presley. The horses are rescues - which is part of the reason this is pricier than other rides on the island. It was clear the horses are well taken care of and seem to love their jobs. It was fun seeing horses so excited to be ridden. The ride in the ocean was a once in a lifetime experience!
