The staff were knowledgable and friendly. Although we did find it a shade expensive we found that for a bucket list item it was worth it. The horses are calm and beautiful. We had a great experience.

The Staff were excellent, horses amazing they allowed you to do some fantastic tricks with them. My sun was able to Horse surf with his, but the weather was way too cold (the reason for not getting 5 out of 5).

Took my granddaughter for her 10th Birthday. She absolutely loved it. I was able to with her in the water, while she did the surfing, skiing and racing part to take pictures. She did great. Highly recommend it. We will probably do it again.

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!!!
