Looking for $20 parking, paved roads, and concession stands every 20 feet? If so, this is not the place for you. Love an animal rescue facility with its low-budget, animal focused, mentality and you are going to love this place. We were a random visitor that showed up mid-afternoon and they arranged a trail ride for us. Granted, we were... More

My kiddos and I met some other mamas & kiddos at Horsepower a couple of weeks ago, and my kids have been literally begging to go back ever since! This is an incredible value and a magical place. For $7, you are welcome to enjoy & explore on your own the massive and shockingly diverse petting zoo, the wonderful play... More

I went here today for the first time. I was surprised to see how many animals there were. It was so nice. I took a trail ride and it was awesome, we even got to ride in the water. I will definitely go back!

Transforming from a small "hire-a-pony" business over 20 years ago to a full fledged petting zoo and educational facility. Get up close and personal with a zorse, lemurs, goats, alpacas, deer and an assorted menagerie of well kept, happy animals. Also a summer and school-break day camp program which can not be equaled in the Tampa Bay Area. Loved by... More

I made a reservation to take my 11 year old cousin horseback riding which was itself exciting. Not only did we ride through the woods but we walked our horses through the water. When we came out of the woods and saw Tampa Bay our jaws dropped. After our ride we walked through the farm and were amazed a the... More

Our family was going to Busch gardens, but they were way too crowded... So we searched for an alternative on the cheap. For close to the price of parking at the theme park, we had a quiet, personal, and endearing experience together! Staff and volunteers were friendly and helpful, and the animals were varried and adorable. Highly recommend

The atmosphere is home like, unlike zoo's. But still a variety of animals. No monkeys or lions tigers and bears, but they do have a variety of lemmars, fox, wolves, birds, miniature horses, kangaroos, zeedonks, pigs, snakes, rabbits and a few others nice country. And it does not break your pocket! You can even book a trail horse riding trip!... More

It was a really fun place to go. I loved seeing all the other animals they had. It was a little dirty going through the mud and water while riding the horses on the trail ride but that is what made it fun. I would recommend it!
