This was a very fun experience for my husband and I. Loved our time spent riding the horses on the beach. I would say this is a must do for anyone going to the island. Wish the weather would have been better so we could have seen the sunset.

This was a wonderful experience for my 6 year old daughter! She was catered to and treated so well! She thoroughly enjoyed her horse Luna, therefore increasing my satisfaction of the whole afternoon.

We booked the horseback riding and ATV riding. Both were fun, but horseback riding was amazing. We booked the afternoon ride and it was long enough. They take you over the sand dunes to the beach and then you ride along the beach and back. They will let you trot for a short period if you wish to do so.... More

We just got back from our morning of riding on the beach, and I must say that it exceeded my expectations -- This is a really enjoyable way to spend a morning on South Padre for those who are looking to escape the crowds and enjoy the island's natural beauty. Don't let the billboard/tourist trap ambiance at the entrance scare... More

We pulled in and felt so worried that we did not stay long. It was not in good condition. Strange people were wandering but no one welcomed us and we could not figure out who worked there to ask about services. I feel some concern about the health and safety of the animals. The people at our motel said maybe... More

We took our kids, age 8 and 11 and they had a blast! They had basically no riding experience, but had no problem going on the horse ride. The guide hooked my daughter's (age 8) horse up to her horse the first half of ride until she was comfortable and then let her ride on her own for the second... More

We booked the sunset ride.it was so exciting yet relaxing. The guides were very knowledgeable and fun.it was worth every penny and the price for time spent riding was very reasonable. I would recommend this as a Must do.

It was very relaxing and a gentle way to see the island on horseback. Make sure to make an appointment for 2hrs.-- time goes by very fast.

The kids had fun feeding the animals but for $10/person it's kind of ridiculous. The kids enjoyed the talking parrots too. The whole place needs a bit of upkeep as well. I've seen more than my share of run down farmsteads but usually they aren't at places that charge you to come in.
