Welcome to Carolina Corral, the place to come for scenic horseback trail rides on the beautiful U.S. Virgin Island of St. John. Meet our personable and colorful horses, donkeys, goats, sheep, chickens, dogs, cats and a duck. Yes, one duck, she likes it that way.

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.

Everybody LOVES the donkeys, and what’s not to love with their long ears and friendly expression? Join us Sunday – Thursday at 10:30am for fun activities at the corral benefiting the VI Donkey Rescue, Inc. “The Daily Donkey” will begin with Decorate Your Donkey followed by a few friendly competitions including pole bending, obstacle course, barrel racing and sack race. Book online, call 340-693-5778 or email us at Hope to see y’all !

You can also sign up on our “Book Now” page to help at the corral with the morning cleaning, feeding, grooming and saddling while learning more about horse and donkey care. Emphasis is placed on basic safety tips and training as well as the needs of each animal. Up to 6 adults and children, preferably 8 years old and above, can participate.

You may consider contributing toward the care of the wild donkeys and other rescues through PayPal using our email or by check to The Carolina Corral, 16133 Spring Garden, St. John, VI 00830.
