Horses swimming around the boat?

By January 26, 2017 No Comments

How would you like to be laying in bed on your boat relaxing after a long flight back to the islands when all of a sudden you hear snorting out on the water? As I poped my head out of the hatch I saw a young lady riding a horse as he swam through the fleet of anchored boats.

Turns out St Thomas has a horse race track and one of the ways the trainers get the horses ready is by having them swim through Vessup Bay at the open end of Red Hook.

This is a cool fact, but maybe you do not want to get up from bed and see a horse head floating in the water if you just watched the Godfather. Haha.
