The horses were well-trained, the handlers were informative and friendly, and this experience was exactly what I expected. My only complaint is I wish I got to spend more time with the horses!! Would go back again... More

BeachHorses was the event of my lifetime. I am 64 years old and had a double knee replacement 3 years ago. I encourage anyone of any age to experience this adventure. I will never forget it. The staff and my personal guide (Christina) are amazing. I am a Registered Nurse and recognized safety aspects in all areas of this adventure.... More

Great horses. Great leaders. Should be able to spend more time riding on beach and swimming with them. Loved the surfing and water skiing though. Fun.

I had a wonderful time with the horses and taking my horse in the water was so much fun. Dolphins even showed up while we were in the water. Pretty magical. The staff was, also, so helpful and friendly.

Wonderful experience for our 14 year old daughter. Highly recommend. We used a local photographer "Alexandra Joy Fitzgerald Photography" and loved the pictures she took.

My husband and I had a great time! We were definitely beginners, but all the trainers made us very comfortable. They were professional, understanding and good instructors. It was clear they love the horses and love what they do. We would do this again!
