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 took our kids, age 8 and 11 and they had a blast! They had basically no riding experience, but had no problem going on the horse ride. The guide hooked my daughter's (age 8) horse up to her horse the first half of ride until she was comfortable and then let her ride on her own for the second half of the ride. The guides are very friendly. They also took each group/family of people and set you up in front of the water so you can can a group picture. They use your own camera/phone. You are able to bring your camera or phone with you on the ride, they just don't want the ringer on, on the phone. They offered a $5 off discount on our tickets since we had more than 3 people. We went on the 1 hour ride and that was plenty for the kids. Will most likely do this again on our trip next year.

We booked the sunset ride.it was so exciting yet relaxing. The guides were very knowledgeable and fun.it was worth every penny and the price for time spent riding was very reasonable. I would recommend this as a Must do.

In 1995, I was reporting from Padre Island on Spring Break. I stopped by the equestrian center and asked for two spirited horses. Went for the sunset ride on a horse that was fresh off the track from Mexico. The hostler said go ahead and have fun. Memories of a lifetime. Thanks for the memories....C. Schaefer Denver, CO

It was very relaxing and a gentle way to see the island on horseback. Make sure to make an appointment for 2hrs.-- time goes by very fast.

The kids had fun feeding the animals but for $10/person it's kind of ridiculous. The kids enjoyed the talking parrots too. The whole place needs a bit of upkeep as well. I've seen more than my share of run down farmsteads but usually they aren't at places that charge you to come in.
