We loved riding the horses and the horse surfing. Our Guides were so much fun and made it a great experience for us. Loved my horse Buster Brown too!! It was a Great 24th Wedding Anniversary experience. Thanks to everyone involved, The Howell's

Far better than I expected! Each rider has their own guide. They were all friendly and truly wanted us to have the time of our lives. My daughters, 17 and 6 loved every minute in the water! It was worth the money!!!

An unique and incredible experience. I have a lot of different horse rides but swimming with the horses felt that I was closer. No words can describe the feeling!

Everything was great. I loved my horse Natalie and guide Diana. Even the weather held for us so all in all my experience was wonderful. I was so glad my friend Denise asked me to her and family.

I believe you can ride with your 3 year old and the others may be able to ride on their own. But, each horse has its own trainer with them at all times.
