About Us

Horseback riding on the beach is like a Florida-style trail ride – but better! Come ride our rescued Drum and Gypsy Vanner horses, and even enjoy an exhilarating swim with these majestic beauties. Start with a ride into the beautiful water at Palma Sola Bay, right near Anna Maria Island. The tranquil, relaxing trip is sure to put you at ease, and the local sea life will amaze you!

Watch as dolphins, manatees, stingrays, and native fish swim past your horse, unafraid. Then, it’s time for you to get dipped – the horses’ favorite part! Just grab hold of the mane while the horses take you for a few swims on the way back to shore. You’ll feel like you’re flying through the water, without any hard impacts or jarring, on an equestrian aquatic adventure you’ll never forget. If you’ve always dreamed of riding horses on the beach in Florida, you’ve come to the right place. We are also offering trail rides on these majestic horses, so ask about Dancing Manes Trail Rides!  Our horses can’t wait to meet you! Read more about our gorgeous rescue horses on our About Us page.
