Horse back trail rides on the beautiful island of St John

Space is limited – Book online today! Book your ride!

Welcome to Carolina Corral. We took a very hard hit with the rest of the island from Hurricane Irma with another storm heading our way this week! It is a time of recovery, which includes parts of the corral out of the woods, and of rebuilding even stronger. We are in need of help in covering the cost of maitaining the cost of care for the 10 horses and various donkeys who call Carolina Corral home. They were loosed during the storm and all came back but our beloved Rodney, the most friendly one of the bunch who died during the storm. He will always be missed by myself and the rest of the gang.

We don’t expect to be riding until Nov.1 when all rides will be booked by phone uuntil mid-December when conditions improve on the island including housing and transportation. Before the holidays we will once again allow booking online when we will do everything we can to insure you have a pleasant holiday break while you help spur on the local economy. I will post later an excellent place to stay in Coral Bay who’s owner took me in when I lost my home.

This is a labor of love on a very small island where resources are few and costly. The animals benefit from your patronage and support. All of the horses are either rescues or were no longer wanted by their owners. We do our best to provide a good home for them. If can consider donating you can do so via our email info@horsesstjohn.com or a check to Dana Bartlett 16133 Spring Garden, St. John, VI 00830. Cellular service is available in one place only on St. John with both towers having been taken out in the storm, but will give further updates on island conditions as soon as possible. This is still an amazing place to live and visit!

 

Thanks very much!
