Took my horse loving daughter and her best friend here for her 12th birthday. They had the time of their lives. Everything was perfect! They're already asking to go back.

My daughter and her friend rode horses here last Saturday. The guides were kind and personable. They made sure they were comfortable and were always there offering help if assistance was needed. The horses were gentle and tame. The girls (age 14 and 15) loved the horse skiing, horse surfing, and riding in the water.

I've always wanted to do this! It was fabulous. The horses were quiet and well-trained, and the staff were professional, friendly and very attentive. I plan to do this every year from now on! Great for horse lovers of all ages!
