A Horseback Ride on the Sand

Quick Details

Take a Chill Ride on the Beach

You have an opportunity to ride a horse that’s walking in the water and actually swimming! You might even have a few wild dolphins swim by you! We usually have groups of two to six riders with one or two mounted guides. Duration: approximately one and a half hours.

What makes this ride so special?

  • Available for ages 10 and older
  • Authentic local experience
  • Relaxing
  • More affordable
  • Ride longer
  • Fantastic photo ops

This ride takes place just before or after our low tides, so there might not be a lot of beach to ride on.

These rides are available for children as young as 10 and riders who weigh up to 300 lbs. [Note: Children ages 3+ can do our Thrill Ride.]

Our horses are mostly rescued horses. We only use Certified Beach Horses — trained by us — who enjoy being in the water. We prefer horses that are well-bred and professionally trained, but we are not limited to a single breed of horse. We are not horse breeders. We have a tremendous staff of talented guides.

Locals have been riding horses at Palma Sola Bay since the 1950s. It’s a Bradenton tradition, and folks love seeing the horses as they drive out to Anna Maria Island.

We use water-proof western-style saddles and custom-made waterproof bridles. Helmets and life jackets are provided for no additional charge.
