This was my girlfriend's first experience on a horse and she had a fantastic time. Thank you Horseplay for making this an excellent start to our Niagara region holiday.

“Great time with family!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014 NEW

My family and I took the 11/2 hour beach ride to Lake Erie. My daughter and I ride but my 2 sons and husband don't. I was a little apprehensive since my 12yo is mildly autistic. The staff were wonderful with him! He is still talking about it 2 weeks later. He wants to learn how to ride now.

This was one of the highlights of our vacation to Niagara Falls.The staff were well informed and friendly, the scenery was interesting and beautiful. We are excited to ride again next year!

“Family Ride -fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

My family of 5 took an hour long family trail ride at the Niagara Falls location. Our group was rounded out with 7 of our friends. We had a varied amount of riding experience, mostly none to little. Age range was 6-50. Everyone was matched to a horse that suited them. Our tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable and knew when to give a little extra help to one of our more timid riders. Horse back riding has been on our summer bucket list for a few years and I am so glad that we finally did it at HorsePlay - from start to finish, the staff was friendly, informative, helpful and considerate. I have no complaints and my whole family is ready and eager to do it again!

“Great way to spend an afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

For my sister's birthday, (and I won't say how old!), she wanted to go horseback riding. She found this stable on line and she chose the beach ride. So 4 of us headed off to Port Colbourne. It was a much larger operation than the ones we have been to around Hamilton, with an average of 20-25 riders per group. However the staff are very organized and take care to match riders with varying degrees of experience with their horses. They take the time to help you up, adjust stirrups, and give brief instruction. The ride to the beach is primarily on a rail trail with a few trots here and there. Then there is a short ride on the beach of Lake Erie including a walk in the water where they stop for a few minutes while the staff take group pictures for you. This was really nice for us to have great pictures of the 4 of us. The ride back to the stable is more like a typical trail ride on winding trails though the woods. We were amazed at how well behaved all the horses were in such a large group. We were also told that all the horses are rescues, so we felt good about supporting an operation that saves these wonderful animals. Thank you Horseplay for making my sister's birthday a great day. We'll be back for the sunset ride!
