I rode a horse once (with my church youth group) when I was just 12 years old. I had no further opportunities to ride again so the experience (although almost magical for me) has always lingered in my heart as a 'favourite memory' of my childhood. Time went on, I grew up, married & had a son (who is now... More

My husband and I booked the 1.5hr sunset beach ride and had a great time. The staff were nice, our guide knowledgeable and the rescued horses calm and easy to handle. This is a place I would and have recommended to friends and will go back to again. We went on a weekday so there was just a small group... More

We took a Canada Day 1-hour trail ride at HorsePlay and were just blown away. The staff (including the woman who gets a couple of very negative reviews on this site) were all flawless. They took great care in matching us all to horses, but did so in such a quick and organized fashion. They paid attention to the low-confidence... More

me and my daughter spent a great day in a thunder storm and pouring rain. I always wanted to ride along a beach. My wish came true . Our guide always put our safety first while trying to make sure our ride was all they promised. We did go on the beach for a short ride but she always kept... More

We are from the area and decided to spend a family day together. I booked a family tour with Horseplay Niagara for my husband, 10 year old daughter, 7 year old son and myself. My son was so nervous that I was unsure if we would be able to get him to participate in the hour long ride. In fact,... More

We really enjoyed the ride. There is only a few sections of trotting and it's very flat and easy. It is quite amazing for Australians to see such a massive expanse of fresh water. The guides were very helpful and knew a lot about the area. The painted horses are beautiful.

On my daughters 11th birthday I brought her to horse play. She has loved horses since she was little. She was so nervous she wanted to leave. Our guide gently talked her through the first 15 minutes and she rode on her own by the end. It was a day she will always remember. Nice ride, scenery and great staff.

Our family of 4 did the one hour family trail ride last week, and it was a wonderful experience. My husband had no previous riding experience and our 13 year old has a developmental disability. Most stables will not allow my family to ride together because of the disability and because our 7 year old is too young for trail... More
