We went on the horsebacking riding excursion and LOVED it. We had a 6 year old, 10 year old and 15 year old and we were able to trot, canter, run the horses in the ocean and it was FANTASTIC!! The horses are all well trained and very responsive. After about 5 minutes even the 6 year old felt fulling... More

enjoyed our ride very much as we were able to first spend time on the gulf shore and were able to walk the horses in the surf - - most trail rides you must walk single file and just sit and ride - this company allows you to ride side by side and repostion in the group which made it... More

You must know the whole story before you go and trash this place. Some of their horses do look underfed but you have to understand most of them have been rescued and are in the process of getting a better life. It takes time to get a horse back in shape. My people that write bad reviews say they have... More

Had a great time. Weather was perfect. Plenty of help to get everyone organized for the ride. I felt the guides kept us safe at all times. Our ages ranged from 17 to 65. Safety for their guests was the main concern.

The guides that accompanied our group were both professional and knowledgeable, and did a good job pairing people up with a horse based upon skill level. My only complaint is that th sunset ride was over a full half hour before the sun set. Our ride was indeed 2 hours, but the timing just didn't work out for it to... More

Took my fiance for her birthday weekend down at south padre and would have to say it was the best experience we had on the island the whole weekend. We did the sunset ride and it was so beautiful.

Your trail bosses are super nice. Relaxing ride with the serenity that is South padre island. I went on the sunset ride which was about 2hours. They may have shorter rides earlier in the day, which is what I'll take when I bring my 76 year old mom! They do a good job of matching your skill or comfort level... More

This was our one opportunity to "cover some ground" on the area of South Padre that is north of the Bird and Wildlife Sanctuary and the abrupt end of the main road - i.e. beach, beach, and more beach. It was amazing. Our guide, Lyle was informative, witty and very nice with us horse "newbies". And - thanks to cancellations... More

We had a great time riding the horses on the beach!!! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, they chose your horse according to the level of riding experience you had. They even take a picture for you at the end for you to have. The horses were beautiful and very well behaved!!! Will definitely be doing this again on... More

We had a great time despite cold, wet weather. The guides were friendly and professional and were flexible to our skill level. Horses had lots of character. We had the freedom to take the pace we were comfortable with and enjoyed galloping in the surf and the bay.
