If you love horses, the beach and the thought of swimming with horses, I have a suggestion for you in St. Maarten. I had the opportunity to go horseback riding in the Caribbean thanks to Lucky Stables. The horseback riding stable is located on the Dutch and the French or Bay side of the island on Cay Bay Beach. Located in Seaside Nature Park, this 30 acre property is home to 78 horses, as well as ducks, rabbits, fillies and foals and a random iguana or two.
The horses are a type of Antillianos breed, not the official name, but the roots of these horses may be traced back to the Spanish conquistadors. The horses are a cross between a Paso Fino and Thoroughbred. They are strong and sturdy, with good hooves for the rocky island trails and warm, tropical climate.
