We decided to go horseback riding for our anniversary. We did the 10am morning ride. Our instructor was Rebecca and she did an excellent job. Be prepared and bring bug spray and sunscreen. We didn't even think about the sunscreen and ended up very burnt. As for the ride, awesome. I rode Yankee and my husband had Hercules. Both good... More

I haven't been horseback riding since I was a child, so I was a bit nervous with this trip. However, we had an awesome guide take us on a moonlight ride, and it was like a private ride with just my friend and me. My horse (Spock) was a spunky one, but once we got an understanding of each other,... More

On my honeymoon wanted to do the romantic sunset ride ....only 7 people so not crowed was nice. I have never rides before so they gave me Blondie .... She had a major eye infection and was so so slow could not keep up with group. I was left alone most of the time while the whole group traveled together.... More

Our Granddaughters and daughter rides the horses every year when they come down for Thanksgiving. They love ridding in the surf.

We had a great time on the sunset beach ride. The horses were easy rides. Rebecca and Colton were the best guides ever! Fun for families or couples. Children are tethered to a guide and wear helmets to help prevent accidents. You need to do this!!!

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!
