Bradenton Horseback Riding on the Beach

This is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure that lets you experience horseback riding in Bradenton, FL. Begin your excursion by meeting our beautiful, amazing horses. 95% of these horses are rescues!

Within minutes you’ll fall in love with this rare breed. Keep an eye out for wildlife, 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 bay views as you ride with your gentle companion. Ask your guide about your horse’s story. You may even shed a tear when you hear some of the horrible conditions our horses came from.

After a brief swimming lesson, our horses will swim while you ride them. The horses are never forced to swim; this is actually their favorite part! So grab hold of their manes and hang on tight! This 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.

Important Information

Your excursion will include a meet and greet with your horse, safety meeting, 60 minutes in the saddle, and your final farewell with the ponies. Please plan on arriving 15-20 minutes before your scheduled ride time. If for any reason the weather is not cooperating, the ride may be altered. Your safety and enjoyment are our top priorities. Horses venture into the ocean about three feet deep during most of the ride. You can enjoy this ride even in cooler temperatures as you do not have to get wet.

Caution – we are selling out FAST! Please book your Beach horseback ride online as far in advance as possible. The picture package is available on the day of your ride starting at $25 for two people.
