Owner description: We create memories! The Wells family has served South Padre Island for 5 generations and we create memories that last a life time! Our Adventure Park is located at the end of State Park Road 100 with forty acres of land spanning from the Gulf of Mexico to the Laguna Madre Bay that provides an unparalleled location for Adventure on South Padre Island. Our horseback rides are along the beach and water's edge and we often see a variety of shoreline and marine life and we get to ride in the remote portion of the Island that few people get to experience. No crowds here! Our Petting Barn is filled with birds and animals we have rescued or have been donated to us for a forever home. Children can enjoy a safe and educational interaction with all of our birds and animals (us big kids too). Dolores also owns The Massage & Healing Arts Center and her licensed and professional Massage Therapists are ready for your pampered needs after a fun day at the beach. Come; make your memories with us! We love what we do and we look forward to exploring the Island with you soon. Doyle & Dolores Wells

We went on the sunset ride. My sister even picked the horse she wanted to ride (a paint horse). Our guide's name was Mandi. She was friendly and outgoing. We rode along the beach, then up over the dunes to the bay side of the island. Mandi was great, offering to take pictures for us. We watched a beautiful sunset and had a great time. A day or so later when we wanted to hunt seashells in the dunes, the lady at the desk was nice enough to let us park our car in the lot. Bonus points!! Everyone was friendly and it was so much fun!! Sunset was beyond exceptional. Well worth the money and thanks to Mandi we have great pics!!

Most trail rides are boring nose to tail follow the leader slower than turtle affairs... not this one.
The staff herded us across the street and over the dunes and right out on the beach. Then we walked at our own pace, side by side and strung out. The wranglers were always close by in case you needed something like... some one to snap the picture!
We really liked this stable.

My daughter rode the Horses on the Beach when she was younger.
She thought it was really cool. She has great memories of that experience.
I suggest it for you children.

Nice ride. You will see a part of the beach that is not easily accessible. Nice for children and adults.

We took a sunset ride that was amazing. Small group with two guides and we rode over the dunes and along the beach and watched the sunset from the Bay side of the island. Horses and staff were great. Only downside was the mosquitos and all the bites I endured.
