Cruzan Cowgirls Horse Rescue
Cruzan Cowgirls Horse Rescue is St. Croix’s only horse rescue and refuge. We provide sanctuary for retired racehorses, as well as homeless, neglected and abused horses here on St Coix. Each horse given a combination of veterinary care, vaccinations, worming, external parasite control, hoof care and nutritional supplementation, in addition to mental rehabilitation, based on individual needs. We also work with local youths in an effort to nurture their sense of compassion and respect for horses and all living things, and are currently working on educational programs designed to teach humane care and keeping of horses. We are primarily supported by income created through Cruzan Cowgirls Horseback Riding Tours and donations from our community and supporters like you.
