My girls, 9 and 10 years old, love this camp. They work hard and get dirty doing farm chores and they love every minute of it! It is a great experience for suburban kids to be able to get a taste of farm life. This camp is so good, after just one week of Horse Power for Kids camp, we... More

We rode through woods and lots of "Old Florida" style brush and we did some trotting and weaving. All of a sudden the puddles were getting very deep and then I realized the horses were making their way out to the bay!! We had gone through this little passage trail and this giant expanse opened up and we could see... More

This was a fun day today for our kids and we really enjoyed visiting very many types of animals. We were lucky it was a cool day so we didn't need to worry about a water source and it was very fun - a good 2 hour activity.

Dislike: we set up our trail ride by phone, and paid by phone. When we got there, they said they had no proof of us setting it up or paying. It was a hassle. Eventually, the wonderful owner straightened it out for us. Like: it was a LOT of fun. The zoo is really cute and there are lots of... More

This has been one of our kids favorite activities. They always look forward to visiting! The staff are always friendly. What a treat to trail ride out into Tampa Bay!! If you are visiting Tampa Bay this would be a perfect opportunity to explore another aspect of the city!

We took our 9 year old grandson and the 3 of us had a fantastic experience with their horseback riding. Our guide Chuck was incredible.... he was terrific with the kids, gave excellent instruction, and it didn't matter whether you were the little 6 year old on the trail or the 63 year old (me) who had his one and...

Went with a friend to check this place out. It is small but the animals are well taken care of. You can get up close and pet some of them or just talk to the parrots. I saw lots of volunteers and lots of enrichment items. A great price to be able to go and visit with the animals. I... More

I have to agree with another reviewer. The pony ride is not 10 minutes like it says on their website. It was a maybe three loops around which was literally 3 minutes and that's being generous. My son liked it so it was worth the $1 a minute. I just want to advise people of this before they spend the... More
