Amazing adventure even in a blizzard!

A group of women friends of 'a certain age' took an 1.5 hour ride thru the forest. Despite the cold and blowing snow we had a fabulous time. Would highly recommend.

My husband and I booked the romance package at HorsePlay after seeing it advertised in our hotel at Niagra Falls and having a car for the 40min drive. We're very glad we did! It was a perfect sunny day and the staff were very friendly upon our arrival. Our guide Toni (apologies if I've spelled that incorrectly!) was friendly, informal... More

My husband and I took the sunset 1.5 hour beach ride and it was awesome!!! It was definitely the highlight of what was already a great day. We were here for the Labour Day long weekend so it was probably a bit busier than normal but definitely not too crowded. I think there were 10-15 people in the group which... More

My mom and I did the 1.5 hour beach ride on a Saturday morning. We arrived early, got signed in quickly by friendly staff, and enjoyed the sunshine while we waited for our ride to begin. I have ridden maybe 3 times in my life, and my mom is much more experienced. The horses were great – I had Barney,... More

I went here August 24th. It was my 2nd time riding a horse and it was my girlfriends first time. The staff was really friendly and they make sure they give you instruction before and during the horse riding. That day it was only a group of 4 so it was a really nice trail ride. Our i instructor was... More

A group of seven of us went here for my sisters birthday. We were all first time riders. We booked a 10:30 slot on a Saturday for an 1.5hr ride.

I recently went for the beach adventure at Horseplay Niagara. The trail was lovely, from my perspective, but there were a number of incidents that made my two hour ride less than pleasurable. I made my reservation a day in advance and told the staff that I was an experienced rider since I had grown up riding horses and have... More

My husband and I paid for the 1.5h beach private experience (approx $110 each) and we stayed on the beach for 2 minutes, the horses were walking so slowly and the guide didn't really want to make them run. We had other and better horse back ridding than this one and less expensive. Choose another location.

I am sorry you did not enjoy your experience with us. Generally if our guide makes the decision to not go faster on one of our private rides, it is due to an unsafe environment either with trail conditions or capabilities with one the riders. We spend aproximately 20 minutes down along the beach and in the water which is... More
