The entire experience was amazing and the staff were all so friendly! We did a morning ride with my son for his 8th birthday. He had never ridden a horse before and didn't even know what we were doing until we got there. The guys really helped him stay as ease and made him feel confident. Best part was as... More

Read reviews and was worried about what the horses would be like. As soon as I got to Padre and unpacked, I headed for the stables to see for myself. You have to realize that this stable is on an island, no grassy pastures and it's hot. News flash, where there are horses, there are flies. I wasn't bothered by... More

This was so much fun! The horse I had bucked me off, but I was warned that he didn't like the water, and I tried to make him go in anyway! I wasn't hurt, and the guide was right there IMMEDIATELY to see if I was okay! The ride was fun, and we will do it again the next time... More

Loved the horses on the beach! Me and my husband did the morning ride. Our first reservation was cancelled due to rain. However, the staff was very nice and very accommodating and rescheduled the trip for the next day. Although it was chilly we had a blast! very beautiful scenery!

If you are going to do this be prepared to be here a while. Flies were everywhere it was disgusting! We sat on the horses waiting to ride for over 45 minutes and then the walk was hot and slow. Not very fun, I will not do this again!

We had a BLAST riding with horses on the beach! The tour guides do a great job pairing each rider with a horse. I will recommend if you are not an active person or do not work out or stretch often I suggest you stretch really well for the ride & perhaps take some Aleve or Advil BEFORE your ride.... More

This is something I have always wanted to do. My husband & I have very little experience with horses, but were well suited to horses that "fit" us both! We were very happy. The guides were awesome and very concerned with the safety of the group. Everyone I spoke with in our group had a wonderful time on our sunset... More

The guides were very nice and helpful. We got there late to get a horse, but they didn't seem upset. All went pretty smoothly. The ride itself is awesome. It's especially nice if you're a first-time rider. I have tail bone problems, though. I didn't realize how much the saddle would aggravate it. It was a mildly painful ride for... More

My 15 & 16 year old daughters had a blast. We did this on day 3 to break up the beach & waterpark. I reserved tickets online, easy check in. Guides were awesome & friendly. It was very organized. Since I had my 3 yr old, we went to the beach, while they were getting everyone matched up with their... More
