Comment: My 12 year old daughter wanted to go riding while on vacation this past Christmas in Tampa. She has riding experience and was worried a trail ride might be boring. Was she ever wrong! Madison catered to her level and needs and she had the best 2 hour trail ride EVER! The photos and videos were delivered same day and are a great memory of her experience. Thank you Madison!

Comment: My 10yr old granddaughter wanted to go horseback riding. (She had never been on a horse.) Well, we went this morning with Madison and had a fabulous time. My granddaughter was so scared at first that Madison took the lead reigns. She was so nice, helpful & comforting.By the end of the trail ride my granddaughter was riding “Daisy” on her own and so proud of herself. She absolutely loved it and is ready to go again!! I definitely recommend Madison and her Gulf Coast Ponies.

Comment: This was the first time my grandkids had ridden a horse. Madison was so helpful and supportive. She gave thorough instructions and, after being on a lead, they felt confident enough to control the horses on their own. We had a wonderful afternoon and made some good memories together!!

Comment: An amazing experience!! Madison was a terrific guide and was very knowledgeable about all aspects of riding and horses. You could definitely tell that her horses have her entire heart! We rode through Little Manatee State Park and it was so beautiful. Our horses, Cesar & Belle, were amazing, very easy going and had wonderful personalities. We will definitely be back to do this again! I would highly recommend going!!

Comment: This was an amazing experience! We went on a one hour trail ride at Manatee River State Park. Madison was an amazing guide. She explained all of the horses personalities, all of which were amazing and sweet. She is very knowledgeable about horses and thoroughly gave us a refresher on how to ride, as it had been awhile. We were able to trot and walk at our one pace, not in just a single-file line. The park was beautiful. Highly recommend.

Comment: Maddison provided us an unforgettable morning trail ride at Myaka River state park. The horses were super friendly, well behaved and the trail provided great views, opportunities and cool comfortable rides . She loves the horses, takes exceptional care and pride in them. She taught us a lot about them and their happy life back in Arcadia. Im hoping to go again for a private lesson. We were fortunate to see a mamma deer with several fawns on our way out. Thanks, Madison for the happy trails.

Comment: Hands down the best experience I’ve ever had on a trail ride, ever. Madison is incredible and they way she cares for both her horses and guests is unmatched. Highly, highly recommend.She was so flexible and communicative leading up to the ride and truly created an experience that was custom for us. We had our own private trail ride through beautiful Myakka and the horses were so calm, yet happy and responsive that I felt like I was able to truly relax and enjoy every aspect of the day!If you have any desire to ride horses in Florida- don’t go anywhere else!

Comment: We absolutely loved this trip! Madison was a wonderful guide. She was very informative, funny, and made us so comfortable. Scribbles and Barbie were calm and handled everything for us. Their personalities made us laugh. Pick Gulf Coast Ponies over the other companies. Madison caters to how you want the trip to go. We wanted our experience to be private and she asked us what we were comfortable with every step of the way. We didnt have to worry about a large group of people we didnt know. This was a highlight of our vacation.

Comment: My husband and I had such a wonderful time trail riding! It was a highlight of our little vacation! Madison took pictures of us riding as well and I can wait to frame some. It was a relaxing little adventure through a natural park in Florida instead of the heavily populated tourist areas. Very reasonably priced and worth the money!

Comment: We enjoyed our ride with Gulf Coast Ponies. Madison was so patient with our family alongside knowledgeable. The horses were so well mannered and pleasant to be around. If you are ever in the area riding horses through the ocean is a must for your bucket list, but especially with Gulf Coast Ponies. What a treat, a memorable experience indeed!!

Comment: This was an amazing experience and the horses were so on point, gentle and easy to ride for beginners. Madison and her mom were so nice and genuine and made you feel at ease, we saw a dozen deer, one big buck that was shredding a bush and had it up on his 8 point rack. Wild hog tracks and a cool temp morning made it perfect. Highly recommend this experience!

Comment: Gulf Coast Ponies was a super experience! My older girls had a blast, even in the rain, and my little girls cant wait til theyre big enough to go horseback swimming too! Madison was a great guide and got them right in the water for the whole hour...just what they were looking forward to, as theyre used to riding horses on dry land. She also took tons of pictures for them, so they didnt need to be distracted with theyre phones to miss any of the fun! Thanks for the great time Madison!

Comment: Madison was very flexible in scheduling with our party of four during these uncertain COVID times. This was the top adventure my 11 year old wanted to do on our road trip and Madison didnt disappoint. We had an excellent time and the feeling of the horses swimming was so much fun! We were all laughs and smiles. We had a beautiful sunset and Madison took tons of pictures for us. It is a must do if you are in the area.
