I'm on a roll this week giving out great reviews. This has been an amazing week in Corpus Christi. After weeks of cool weather and mediocre restaurants we've had great food lately and an amazing day at Horses on the Beach. Our guide Matt was very good as well as the other ranch hands. Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. The horses were well behaved and the weather was perfect for a horse ride on the beach. We chose the afternoon ride and an hour was a good amount of time (although I could have stayed all day). We're not ones to normally purchase photos at places, but these turned out extremely good. For $10.00 each I highly recommend at least checking them out and they'll make a great keepsake (no this isn't a paid endorsement 😁)

My ONLY criticism is that there's not good signage to find the business or where to park. They'll be moving soon so I expect this will improve. Otherwise....PERFECT. Thanks Matt and the rest of the guys!

We were able to conveniently book online same day reservations for 4 on June 26, 2022. Our son, his wife and our grandson and I were paired up with gentle horses (Denali, Skipper, Scare Face and Astro) by wranglers Kat and Lance. The ride was very enjoyable and the staff was excellent. Would highly recommend the horseback riding on the beach for young and old! Keep up the great work!

All of the staff at Horses on the Beach are terrific! They are so respectful, patient, helpful and friendly. I cannot say enough good things about all 4 of them! They take great care to make sure you have a horse that meets your riding needs. We have been on 3 rides with them (over the past 5 years) and have always had a wonderful experience & a fun time. My husband and I take our grandkids there to ride the horses, and they absolutely LOVE it & have never stopped talking about their rides after several years now. Our granddaughter just turned 11 years old and this was our gift to her this year for her birthday. She was so surprised and ecstatic! We take the 1st ride of the day (there are 4 rides a day, I think) before it gets too hot outside. It gets VERY hot & humid here, so keep that in mind. We thought when we got to the beach yesterday for our 10 a.m. ride, it was going to be really hot, but the cool breeze off of the water virtually eliminated the heat! It was very comfortable. Another thing that I love about Horses on the Beach is that their horses are rescues that they have nursed back to health! If ever in Corpus Christi or nearby, I highly recommend this as one of your activities, whether you have just adults in your party or it's a family outing. All will have a great time!

We had the best time doing this! I've never done anything like this on the beach, but I'm so glad we did. My 2 sons and their fiances agree as well! The views were amazing and our guides couldn't have been any better. If you're looking for something to do on your beach vacation, I highly recommend Horses on the Beach. You'll be glad you did! 😃👍

Don’t miss this experience. The horses are well tended and well behaved. The ride is a leisurely pace and suitable for ALL ages. I chose the sunset option, the weather is more predictable and slightly cooler. Also the beach has less distractions for the horses. Highly recommend 🐴

Two hours of leisurely riding up and down the beach at sunset. Our trail leader Kat made sure each person was put on a horse they would be comfortable with. A short trip out over a sand dune and there were the waves coming in on the beach. Imagine riding watching the waves finish coming ashore under your horse's feet with the ocean breeze blowing. Kat let us each just quietly enjoy the experience but was ready to answer any questions. It doesn't matter if you've never ridden or are an experienced rider, THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE!!! If we ever return to Corpus this will be on the top of our to do list.

We had a great time on the horses here. Matt went above and beyond after we got back and realized we locked our keys in the car. He was nice enough to drive us to a gas station and back. Just a really nice guy, and we were so grateful. Weather was perfect, Alexa was our guide in the front. Silverado (my hoses) had to be right up front. She was great at keeping us informed of the area and provided an excellent coffee shop with vegan items for me.

Overall I enjoyed the experience, but several things could have made it better! First, having clear instructions on where the place is located would be helpful. The confirmation email had driving instructions, but they weren't very specific especially for someone who knows nothing about the area. The sign for the place isn't highly visible from the highway, and I only saw 1 sign for the place at the small check in area. Obviously, seeing a bunch of horses on the beach was pretty easy to spot once we were close enough, but we got stuck in traffic, and I wasn't exactly sure how long it would take us to arrive at the place since they said GPS instructions weren't accurate. I called the phone number listed on the confirmation email, and someone called me back about 10 min later after we had already arrived.
Secondly, taking smaller groups of people would be nice. We were in a group of about 20 people. My husband and I were some of the first few people to be placed on our horses. We waited for 20 min or so while everyone else got on their horses. Our son was the last person to get put on his horse. I felt cramped by the others during the ride, and I wasn't able to ride near my husband or son. My husband's horse wanted to be in the lead. My horse was near the front, and my son's was somewhere behind us. We couldn't see or hear him.
The staff was ok but not overly personable compared to other places we've ridden. It definitely just seemed like a job to them which is understandable to a certain extent, but if you're in a service-type industry, then it's helpful to act at least a little interested in your guests.
Sorry for not leaving a glowing review, but it's my honest opinion.

We have been horseback riding all over the country and this was one of our favorite rides. It was so peaceful and serene. The animals are all in very good condition, strong and well taken care of. They are very well behaved, but not robots. Each one has his or her own personality, and that was really fun to see. They were compliant and knew just where to walk, but also obeyed individual commands perfectly. If you wanted to move up or circle back, or swing wider than the group, they went right along with your directions. The guides were great; personable and fun and easy to socialize with. We loved the peaceful beach and the gorgeous beaches!

We don’t ride horses very often and this was definitely a great way to go. Nice gentle ride along the beach, about 1.5 hours in length, enjoying the water and friendliness of the staff and others in our group. Staff did wonderful with our 33 year old special needs son, helping him on/off the horse, his horse was very gentle and he had no problems being able to guide him. I hope to try the sunset ride next time. Thanks for the great time!
