Horseback riding on the beach
If it's not on your bucket list, maybe it should be. The Real BeachHorses™ Experience is much more than a beach ride. It's a unique interaction with highly trained animals and their trainers. It's an authentic "Old Florida" family experience. It can be romantic, educational, exciting, and memorable. It makes a wonderful gift. And it's a fantastic photo-op.
For some, the dream of riding a horse on a beach is motivation enough to plan a weekend visit to nearby Anna Maria Island. For most of our guests, the main attraction is what happens in the water where we'll teach you how to do some fun activities on your horse.
We've been teaching locals and tourists how to have fun with horses at Palma Sola Bay since 2006. Since then, we've become kind of famous because of HorseSurfing™ and Horse Skiing™. We've been featured in broadcast and print media in North America and Europe. One time when National Geographic put up a photo of BeachHorses™ on their Instagram site, it got over 46,000 Likes in less than 24 hours.
You might even see a few wild dolphins swimming by you! Call for prices and availability at

How it works...
First, buy your tickets. We frequently sell out so it is best to buy your tickets well in advance. You can buy online 24/7 or call us at +1 (941) 907-7272 (recommended). We also sell Gift Cards.
After buying your tickets, we'll send you a confirmation email with a booking number and tons of info like directions, what to wear, etc. It is very important that you read this email ASAP after booking. Please call us immediately if you have any questions.
You will be meeting us at Palma Sola Bay. We bring the horses to the bay from a farm about 45 minutes away. You should arrive about 15 minutes before you are scheduled to ride. Please don't be late.
The first half of the experience takes place on the beach and the second half is in the water. You will have a horse trainer/guide with you at all times. When you are in the water, your trainer will teach you how the locals enjoy the experience of riding horses in the salt water.
