Welcome to Carolina Corral!

It’s been interesting trying to support the animals during a time when we would normally have been our busiest. However, it has been an opportunity to do some corral and trail improvements in order to provide a better experience once we resume riding.  Beginning June 1 from 3pm to 6pm, Mon – Fri visitors are welcome to see the amazing horses and donkeys along with the other critters who call the corral home. They’ll be a donation box and hand sanitizer along with snacks and beverages including yard games for both kids and adults.

Trail rides will resume July 1, 2020 when you can ride with us on beautiful St. John Monday thru Saturday on the 1 1/2 hour ride at 10am or 4pm.  After a short lesson we’ll head out on a ride taking in amazing ocean views the entire way to a private rocky beach for pictures.  Do a little trot or canter up the hill to take in even more of the neighbouring British Virgin Islands. Then on the return, wade in the water alongside beautiful natural vegetation. Sorry, No participant under the age of eight years old.  For families with children 7 or under I offer 1/2 hour family kiddie ride, call for reservations where the entire family can do a short ride together.

These opportunities are limited to 6 participants per ride. You can book online for a horseback ride, otherwise call or email us if you’d prefer to pay offline. If it’s not possible to ride, you are still welcome to stop by and show the animals some love and help out if you’d like. Please call 340-693-5778 or email us at info@horsesstjohn.com for more information.

This is a labour of love on a very small island where resources are few and costly. The animals will benefit from your patronage and support. All of the horses, donkeys, sheep, goats, cats, dogs, duck and pig are either rescues or were no longer wanted by their previous owners. We do our best to provide for them a good home giving them the care they deserve.

With all that has happened and the progress made toward restoration after the hurricanes, most people agree this is still a beautiful place to visit and live.

Much love!
