My favorite experience in South Padre

Riding a horse on the beach was the highlight of our vacation! Great for experienced and inexperienced riders. The best!

We had never ridden horses on the beach before and hadn't ridden horses for years. Our horses were picked for us with that in mind and they were a perfect fit. Our guides were so helpful and friendly and competent. We rode up the beach and it was a beautiful day. We have wanted to do this and on a... More

April 5th, 2015. We did the morning ride (1 1/2 hours) which I highly recommend. The horses are fresh and not to hot. The guides are really nice, they allow you to roam freely, and if you are an experienced rider, you can trot / run the horses if you like, and walk them into the surf.

Petting zoo and horseback riding! Kind of expensive to ride horses but so worth it! Took a sunset ride on the beach and loved it!! Great staff and very nice horses!

While vacationing in SPI - the girls in the family planned horseback riding as our first adventure. It was everything we expected and more. I loved my horse, Dr. Pepper. I was sad to say goodbye. Our guides were very friendly and kept us all together. They even helped lead my horse into the water - so cool! We had... More

Staff is wonderful at gauging individual ability and customizing the experience to meet your level. They are friendly, engaged, and helpful. The are also very patient with young riders. Horses are safe but not as pre-programmed as many trail ride type places which gave me some freedom to ride around openly while I felt my kids were safe riding more... More

My 6 year old and I did the one hour afternoon ride while my husband and older son were out fishing. We had a great time! Everything was so easy; one of the guides hooked his horse up to my son's, so I didn't have to worry about anything. We both had an amazing time. My son couldn't believe a... More

These guys are fantastic!! Me and my friend came, and were given horses that were definitly spirited!! As we were both expierienced riders, this was fun for us. The guides, especially Chris and AJ, are pros at everything! They were able to manage their own challenging horses, and help everyone in the group! There were lots of first time riders... More

lt was such fun to ride a horse along the beach. I thought with so many riders it would not be fun but because the beach is endless everyone was spread out enough that you had no idea there were 30 other riders. I would suggest going in the morning or evening so it doesn't get too hot. They let... More
