Your St. Petersburg Beach Horseback Ride

This is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Your mounted guide takes you out into the bay, carefully navigating the correct course. Keep your eyes open for manatees, stingrays, and dolphins to swim by. Your guide can film you playing with star fish, conch, or any other sea creature you might find. All living creatures MUST be returned to their home. Any nonliving items can be kept. Enjoy the view of the bay as we peacefully ride along. This is a great spot for some pictures, which can be purchased and uploaded directly on your phone immediately after your ride.

On the ride back, your guide routes the safest but most exciting ride back to shore (weather permitting). This one-hour ride includes an exciting swim on your horse back to shore. Ticket prices for our sunset ride start at $160 per person.

If for any reason the weather is not cooperating the ride may be altered. Your safety and enjoyment is our top priority. Horses will venture into the ocean about three feet during most of the ride. You can enjoy this ride even in cooler temperatures as you do not have to get wet. Your mounted guide navigates the tides (if conditions are right, and temperature is above 70 degrees) to pick a perfect spot to swim with your horse. Your guide shares fun facts about our native sea life, taking pictures and videos that can be purchased and downloaded right to your phone.
