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.Plan to visit Cruzan Cowgirls during your St. Croix vacation using our convenient St. Croix journey maker.

Jen spent our tour complaining and comparing her horses and her techniques over her competition on the island.... We also found out that for $100 a person to take a 60 minute ride she doesn’t pay... more »
My fiance, our 13yo son, and I had the best time horseback riding with the Cruzan Cowgirls. We took a morning ride and it was a dream come true. I was nervous as I had never been horseback riding... more »
Awesome tour guides by the Cruzan Cowgirls. They were very friendly, and super informative about the flora and the island in general. Not to mention that they rescued these horses. If you are visiting the island, this tour is definitely worth the time and money.
Thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Cruzan Cowgirls. This was a bucket list activity for my wife and it did not disappoint. Loved the surreal ride through the rain forest and beautiful time on the beach, as well as the invigorating and comical ride in the water. These ladies know what they’re doing and are doing great things rescuing these horses. Highly recommend!
