Spectacular Sunset Horseback Ride 

This spectacular ride is cooler, quieter, romantic and the perfect way to end your active day on South Padre Island. This is the ULTIMATE horseback ride on the beach where you can experience the best of the Island while riding horses from the Gulf to the Bay with pristine sand dunes in the middle.


Typically, we ride horses to the Gulf side beach for an enjoyable ride along the surf before we cross over to the bayside of the Island for watching the sun set. We often see sea life, beautiful sand dune flowers and wildlife on this ride. This is the perfect horse ride on the beach and when we throw in the sunset you will experience PARADISE on HORSEBACK!


Moonlight Horseback Ride

These are special rides offered only four days before and during the full moon and is a great ride for the whole family. Space is limited so please reserve your moonlight ride early.


Mount up as the sun sets and the moon rises. We will take you along the moon-lit beach and sand dunes on horseback while watching the moon glisten off of the ocean waves and see the stars as never before. Experience the Island in a different way as we cross through the remote sand dunes to the bay side of the Island for an unparalleled view of Gulf of Mexico and Laguna Madre moon-lit waters from atop a high sand dune.

This is a 90 minute guided ride and is a walking only ride, no trotting or cantering for safety reasons will be allowed. The ride leaves at dusk so the guest can enjoy the evening beach ride. We do our best to time the rising of the moon over the ocean as you are at our scenic sand dune lookout spot. Guests come back to the barn under the light of the moon.
