Enjoy Sunset Horseback Riding on the Beach in Bradenton, FL!

What could be more magical than riding and swimming your majestic horse in the bay and seeing the amazing colors of the setting sun? Perfect for anniversaries, proposals, honeymoons or an amazing date. These rides are limited and are truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Begin your excursion by meeting our beautiful, amazing horses — 95% of these horses are rescues!

Keep an eye out for wildlife on your sunset horseback ride, as it’s common to see manatees, stingrays, and dolphins swimming by. Palma Sola Bay is a natural breeding ground for our manatees! Enjoy the beautiful Bradenton, FL sunset views as you ride with your gentle companion. Ask your guide about your horse’s story. Some of our horses came from horrible conditions and our now being taken good care of. 

After a brief safety meeting and a lesson on how to swim with the horses, our horses will swim while you ride them. Our swimming horses are never forced to swim — this is actually their favorite part! So, grab hold of their manes and hang on tight! Sunset horseback riding in water almost feels like you’re flying through the air.

There is no hard impact or bouncing as the horses’ feet do not touch the ground while they swim (if conditions are right, and the temperature is above 60 degrees). Your mounted guide navigates the tides and shares information about our native sea life and our rescue horses. They also take pictures that can be purchased on the day of your ride and even downloaded right to your phone.

Sunset Horseback Riding Information:
