On St. Croix, you can ride down along the seaside or up in the hills with a view. Or both! Paul and Jill’s Equestrian Stables on the west end offers beach trail rides combined with a nature tour into the hills of the rainforest. Glean a little history and flora and fauna info en route. Cowboy Steve of Equus Stables, on the North Shore, guides you into the hills overlooking Cane Bay and Ham’s Bluff. Then you take your horse for a sunset swim.
