I planned a surprise horseback ride for my 8 and 5 year old daughters. They both loved their experience! The trainers were great too! My youngest daughter has ridden a horse only one time prior to this experience. We'll definitely be back!!!

Yes, but only if you live on the Virginia side of State Street. :-) Just kidding. Sometimes we offer special deals in the spring and fall.

I have a horse in Ohio and this looks fun! Do I have to be led or can I ride with the group on my own? following the group person in charge instead? and into the water?? It would just be me coming alone . I am on AMI Oct. 20 TO Oct. 28TH I am thinking about this but do not want to pay that price to be led around if you know what I mean. lol I am staying on Bridge st how far are you from that point? I have no car only a golf cart that week! thanks in advance!! Jen

There are no alligators or snakes that we've ever seen in Palma Sola Bay. And in 10 years, we've never seen a shark either.
