My husband had never ridden a horse before but had always wanted to, so I thought this would be a great birthday surprise for him. I read all kinds of reviews on here, and figured I knew what to expect for a worst-case scenario. A few reviews said that the group sizes were large, so to fix that I booked... More

My husband and I like to go horseback riding from time to time as we find it very relaxing....but we found this Beach Adventure the exact opposite. We arrived the required 1/2 hour before the 12:30 start time; but many other riders did not and thus did not receive the proper instructions so there was lots of confusion along the... More

I bought vouchers off of Travelzoo and decided to book for a Father's day activity. We had SO much fun. We went as a family with a 7 and 10 year old. My 10 year old rides weekly so they gave her a pony that was a little more stubborn and she was proud that she got to manage him.... More

Wasn't bad but I wouldn't rave about it. It you are a first time rider, you'll likely enjoy this. Very simple, straight forward trail riding. I went with my 13 year old son. The people were nice, horses very good natured. Wehad one guide and 6 riders. Apparently due to the inclement weather, most of the riders had cancelled otherwise... More

A must for everyone!! My first time on a horse. The staff was excellent and our guide Tony was wonderful. He was always making sure that we were comfortable and the information he provided was so informative. The trails are good with some breath taking views. We were a group of 2 and found service was good and horses were... More

The day of our trip was rainy and miserable but five minutes into our ride I completely forgot all of that. The trails are phenomenal, there is a large variety of wildlife and plant life on the path and the scenery changes constantly. Our guide was fantastic; he identified more plants and animals than I can remember and was extremely... More

Arrived early and waited 1/2 hour until it was time to ride, then all of a sudden, it was rush, rush. My 83 year old companion was poorly fitted with her helmet, and it kept falling over her eyes during the ride. Her horse hadn't been groomed since the morning ride, and his mane was full of burrs. Guide was... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and I am sorry your customer service was less than you expected. We usually only ask people to move their vehicles when they are blocking gates or doorways which does not occur often hence no signage to indicate that.

I have to say we are very disappointed. We (a group of 6) arrived at 8:45 (ride booked for 9:30) and was rudely greeted. We were told to move our van (although there is no designated spots) and then rudely dismissed as we tried to gather our items. Once the van was moved we moved to the picnic tables and... More

We went to few horse ridings near city of Toronto, riding on tracks, and it was bit boring. However the experience from HorsePlay was just so great. We had 2 hours Beach Adventure Ride, and all that scenery going into the woods, water, and road, they all were so great. Our group was only 5 people including the leader from... More
