I live in the Tampa area and I have an 18 month old. I'm always on the look out for awesome experiences to share with my son during the week especially since we are planning on homeschooling. This exceeded all of my expectations. It was beautiful, clean, fun, kind and I can say that not only about the animals but... More

I understand what they are trying to do here, and I appreciate it. It makes me feel like the scrouge by writing an honest review. By all means go, support this great organization. But, do not expect Disney, LEGOLAND, or even an old dilapidated Florida attraction, expect more of a cross between a thirdworld zoo and a dirt road.... The... More

A large group of college students visited Horse Power as part of a club social. We had an even more amazing time than anyone expected. The horses are excellently trained and the riding paths are beautiful and surprisingly scenic for the area. The guides also allow you to trot which is hard to find at most barns. But perhaps the...

We have been to Horse Power several times with our kids and this place is so amazing to take the kids to. They have all sorts of animals for the kids, trail rides and festivals from time to time. They even have summer camps that the kids would totally love. This place is also a blessing for different organizations that... More

I don't even know where to start about what this farm means to our family. Educational, fun, amazing experience for all families and kids. This is the only place my granddaughter begs to go back to after every camp, trail ride, festival, etc. She would move in with Armando if he would let her. Do yourself and your family a... More

I started going to HorsePower for Kids almost six years ago when it was still called Hire a Pony. I started volunteering and taking lessons there and I soon fell in love with the place! The workers, volunteers and owner, Armando himself, do an absolutely AMAZING job of making the barn feel welcoming and fun for every type of person.... More
