About
We create memories! The Wells family has served South Padre Island for 5 generations and we create memories that last a life time! Our Adventure Park is located at the end of State Park Road 100 with forty acres of land spanning from the Gulf of Mexico to the Laguna Madre Bay that provides an unparalleled location for Adventure on South Padre Island. Our horseback rides are along the beach and water's edge and we often see a variety of shoreline and marine life and we get to ride in the remote portion of the Island that few people get to experience. No crowds here! Our Petting Barn is filled with birds and animals we have rescued or have been donated to us for a forever home. Children can enjoy a safe and educational interaction with all of our birds and animals (us big kids too). Dolores also owns The Massage & Healing Arts Center and her licensed and professional Massage Therapists are ready for your pampered needs after a fun day at the beach. Come; make your memories with us! We love what we do and we look forward to exploring the Island with you soon. Doyle & Dolores Wells

Sunset Horseback Ride
Mar 2021
The horseback riding was worth the money spent vs the amount of time you get to ride. The guides were all extremely nice and well-educated.

Once in a lifetime experience
May 2021
Absolutely incredible experience! This was the most fun I have had in a long time. The staff were friendly and the horses were calm, fit, and cared for. After listening to what we hoped for, they matched us with appropriate horses and gave good basic safety instructions. Our guide, Jessica, was helpful, kind, and great fun to chat with. She helped us have a memorable experience and happily helped us take some gorgeous pictures. Once on the ride, our horses were bomb proof- they ignored trucks with blaring music, a four wheeler, and a loose dog (not that we encountered much of these things, the beach was pleasantly mostly empty!) Riding near and in the water was beyond gorgeous. I definitely recommend riding with these folks, and hope to come back again someday!

Needs major upgrades
May 2021 • Family
The staff were awesome, so nice, but the property and attractions were not worth the drive out there. The on line pictures were misleading. The petting zoo was feeding animals thru an awkward fence. The walkway boards were breaking and we were scared of our feet/legs going thru. After seeing that we left without zip lining or horseback riding.

Amazing Horses and Location!
Apr 2021
What an amazing ride! This stable rescues horses and cares for the sick/injured. We saw many abused animals, and this place was doing amazing things to treat their injuries and turn their lives around in a loving environment. The horses we rode were all "rehabilitated" rescues - and they were wonderful. We rode along the beach and in the water - would definitely do this again. The guides were very knowledgeable and super helpful! Good for beginners or experienced riders.

Great morning ride on the beach
May 2021 • Couples
This morning’s ride was a lovely experience.
Cristian, Matthew, Louis and Grace made sure we all stayed safe, but still fun.
I was pleasantly surprised that the 1 1/2 ride was a full 1 1/2 in the saddle, not just from arrival time to return, as is often the case with trail rides.
And they came around and helped take photos.

Great time horseback riding
Mar 2021 • Family
My teenage daughters and myself had a great time horseback riding on the beach. The guys reassured me we were safe and even followed up with me during the ride because I’m sure I looked a little nervous at first. Feeding the goats and pigs was an added bonus.

Nice Morning Ride
Feb 2021
I was in town for a quick trip and always try to find somewhere to go riding on my various trips. This was a smoothly run operation and the guides Jenna and Frank were both very nice and took care to make sure everyone was having a fun time and staying safe. I got to learn about their operation a bit and was pretty impressed by how much they do care for their animals. I would recommend this experience if you're in the area and have some time to go for a ride. Their horses are well trained so any experience level can feel safe and comfortable.

Family-Friendly, 60-Minute Horseback Riding
Dec 2020
Our guides and the staff were the highlight of our tour, including the office folks, Ryan, and 2 Latino males (whose names we're sorry we did not get).
Sadly, the group we went with was HUGE (maybe 30 riders) and members of our group, including children and first-time riders, were separated out and had to ride with strangers. The horses seemed well cared for, but were competing for leading the pack and there was quite a bit of biting and a little misbehavior on their parts.
The seashells along the ride and the stretch of beach was very nice and the guides did an exceptional job herding 30 horses with more than a few novice riders along a beach that was traveled by a LOT of cars. It was impressive.
The longhorns at the stables were AMAZING to interact with and the check-in process was smooth and stress free. Sure wish the groups were smaller and that we would have had the opportunity to trot a little or do a couple of more-adventurous things.
