We are located on the beautiful island of Galveston, TX and have proudly been in business since July, 2015. We are passionate about horses, serving the public, and having fun on the beach . Our GIHPR family is comprised of a close knit group of gifted horsemen and an exceptional herd of horses. Our goal is to provide a unique, fun, and educational horse experience unlike any other, and we are continuously exceeding those expectations.
