Really fun day for the family. We saw a lot of horses up close and they are beautiful. There is a lot to do beyond the horses including the beach and short hikes.

You would just have to do a Google search to find that information. The Pony Swim is in July, so I expect that's why everything is booked out. You have to book way ahead for this area in summer. It's empty in the fall and... More
